18-year-old Sonu Kumar, a school drop-out entered into the school and put sindoor on the forehead of a tenth class student in front of her classmates and teacher before fleeing the spot.
A case has been registered against Sonu on the complaint of the girl's parents and the principal of the inter-college, police said on Saturday, Sept 5.

Sonu, a resident of Murliwala village, was a student of class XI but left the college last year after failing in the annual examination, Singh said.
According to police, Kumar was in relationship with the girl, who belongs to the Dalit community and is two years younger to him. "Their relationship had ended due to caste difference," a police official said
