One student was killed and another critically injured after a clash broke out between 100 students in Rajasthan’s Kota city. Satyaprakash, who hails from Bihar and was studying at a coaching centre, succumbed to his injuries while the other is battling for his life. The police are investigating the cause behind the fight.
Sandip and Satya Prakash, residents of Bihar state were thrashed by a gang of around 100-110 students when they were on their way.
Satya Prakash died on the spot while Sandip, who suffered serious injuries, was hospitalised. Both, Sandip and Satya Prakash are students of medical science in Kota.
“The dispute was between student groups over leadership. Some students attacked this boy outside the mess, we have arrested three-four people in this case and others have been identified and will be arrested soon,” said senior police officer Sawai Singh Godara.
Mr Godara said the attackers came on two or three motorcycles.
Satya Prakash, the son of a postmaster in Bihar, was declared dead in hospital. His friend Sandeep, who had come from Bihar four days ago, is in a critical condition.
“Around 8.30 pm I came out of my house when I heard a loud noise and saw 150 boys on the road with sticks, rods and some had knives. I called the police. The boys ran away. I saw the boy lying injured and took him to hospital,” said an eyewitness, Bhuvesh Gupta.
