A 17-year-old student was stabbed while trying to save his teacher during a fight in South Delhi’s Sangam Vihar, police said on Tuesday.
The student, identified as Abhishek, was stabbed in the head and has been admitted to the AIIMS, they said.
According to the police, AD Mahesh, a resident of Sangam Vihar, runs a coaching center for students from grades I to XII, the police said.
A person named Shishpal, 25, and a minor regularly made noise in front of the center.
On Monday, too, they started making noise, cursing passers-by and causing a nuisance, according to a senior police official.
Mahesh tried to pacify him but Shishpal started mistreating him and got into a fight with him. Seeing this, the center’s students ran out to save their teacher, the officer said.
Shishpal’s younger brother also rushed to the spot with a knife, which he handed to his elder brother. Shishpal repeatedly stabbed a student named Abhishek on the head, police said.
The victim became unconscious and fell down. He was transferred to Majidia Hospital from where he was referred to AIIMS Taruma Center, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Chandan Chowdhary said.
After the incident, both brothers ran back inside and started throwing stones from their patio.
However, no one was injured and police rushed to the terrace and rounded them up, officials said.
Mahesh’s statement has been recorded and a case under sections 307 (attempted murder), 506 (penalty for criminal harassment) and 34 (general intent) of the Indian penal code has been registered at the Sangam Vihar police station, they said .
