Satna, MP, Jan 3 (UNI) In a grim reminder of the Gurgaon incident, a tenth-standard student used a crude weapon to gun down a class eight student today, following a festering dispute, on a government higher secondary school premises at this district's Churwari village 45 km from here, police said.
After the last bell at 1300 hrs, Rahul Singh (16) -- who hails from an influential family -- pulled out the gun concealed in his shorts and opened fire on tribal Dharmu Kol (12) who died on the spot. Preliminary reports gave the victim's surname as 'Kaul'. Ten days back, the boys scuffled at school. Singh was arrested and has confessed to the murder. Police is attempting to ascertain who supplied the weapon.
This district adjoins Uttar Pradesh from where certain criminal elements sell crude guns here.
