NEW DELHI: A Class XII student of the National Institute of Open Schooling was stabbed to death allegedly by two students of Sri Aurobindo (Evening) College and their accomplices at Malviya Nagar in South Delhi on Friday. While one of the accused has been arrested in this connection, four other accused are still at large.
The incident occurred around 11-30 a.m. when a freshers' party was going on in the college. The college central counsellor, Amit, his relative Rinku Tanwar, and their friends were in the party when two students of Sri Aurobindo (Evening) College, Bholu and Sanjeev Sejwal, reached there along with their friends, Amit Sejwal, Jai Prakash and Kali. Amit object to it saying only students of the morning shift were allowed.
This led to a confrontation between the two groups, following which Bholu, Sanjeev and their accomplices dragged Amit outside the college campus and began beating them. Rinku and two of his friends, Sandeep and Pradeep, tried to intervene at which they were attacked. The accused allegedly stabbed Rinku in the chest and vanished from the scene. Sandeep and Pradeep also sustained minor injuries.
The students alleged that several policemen were deployed outside the college, but they did not intervene. The police remained tight-lipped over the allegation.
Rinku was taken to Modi Hospital, from where he was referred to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences where he succumbed to his injuries in the afternoon. His two other friends also sustained minor injuries in the brawl.
While the students alleged that the fight broke out between two groups over the issue of entry of outsiders into the college premises, the police said the clash was fallout of a fight between the two groups when they had gone to Narela-Singhu border to participate in a "Kabbadi" contest about two days ago.
With Friday being the last day of college before the University breaks for mid-term holidays, the morning saw a good turnout of students. News of the murder trickled in around noon, when the celebrations had almost come to an end and students had just begun to leave, with many going to the nearby Gitanjali market, a usual hangout and the scene of incident.
The college principal, Hari Om, said although necessary security measures had been taken and there was police deployment outside the college campus, the chances of outsiders gaining entry was a possibility. "We are not yet sure if the student who was killed in the fight or those involved in it are from the college. There was enough police presence outside the college and teachers were also taking rounds so there was no lack of security really," Mr. Hari Om said when contacted in the evening. A resident of Fatehpur Dairy, Rinku ran a small gym in the area. The police said Kali was also a student of the Open School. Meanwhile, a case of murder was registered at the Malviya Nagar police station and Sanjeev was arrested. A hunt has been launched for the four other accused.
