In a horrify incident, a Class 6 girl stabbed the Class 1 student with a sharp-edged knife in the toilet of Lucknow’s Brightland School. According to the police, the girl attacked the boy as she wanted a holiday.
“For getting the school closed, the girl attacked Hritik,” police said. The authorities added that someone may have told her that the only way a holiday would be announced was if one of the students died.

According to the initial details provided by the police, the girl allegedly took the boy to the toilet and tied him with her dupatta before stabbing.
