A 22-year-old student of St Thomas College in Kerala’s Kottayam district was brutally murdered by her classmate with a paper-cutting blade. The girl, identified as Nithina Mol, later succumbed to her injuries.
Both Nithina and Abhishek Baiju, the accused student, were having their supplementary exam when the latter reportedly left the hall midway while the exam was in progress.
Abhishek then reportedly waited for Nithina to return and slit her throat with a paper-cutting blade over their alleged break-up. She was rushed to Marian Hospital but soon succumbed due to heavy bleeding, police said.
Both of them are students of BVoc Under Graduate degree course in Food Processing Technology at the college.
The security guard at the college had reportedly seen the two quarrelling earlier. Witnesses told local media that the murderer seemed unperturbed after committing the horrific crime.
The students of St Thomas College nabbed the perpetrator and handed him over to the police. The body is under police custody and the police said they will arrest the accused after interrogation.
In the past too, similar incidents of girls being brutally murdered were reported. In Assam, a staff member of a college had attacked a student, Nandita Saikia, with a machete in Lakhimpur.
In another incident, a 15 year old was murdered by her cousin in Guwahati’s Kharghuli area.
