Mangaluru, Sept 17: Two students of a pre-university college have been arrested by the sleuths of Mangaluru East Police on the charges of stabbing a student of another private PU college near Nanthoor, in the city.
Both the accused and victim are 17-year-old boys. According to Commissioner of Police N Shashi Kumar, the two “minor” accused have been produced before the juvenile board.
The incident occurred on September 15. In a complaint, the injured said that when he was walking with his friends towards Nanthoor Junction after the college hours, two students of another PU college who were known to him approached and invited him for a talk.
They took him behind Babbu Swamy Daivasthana nearby and stabbed him.
The injured was admitted to a private hospital for treatment.
The victim was stabbed reportedly because his attempts to pacify his friends who had allegedly received threats from another group of students had angered the latter.
