Angry over being pulled up for indiscipline, a Class 11 student in Uttar Pradesh stabbed his teacher inside the classroom, police said Tuesday. The accused is absconding

The incident took place Monday in the government-aided Adarsh Inter College in Saharanpur district's Bargaon town, about 500 km from here. The 16-year-old student stabbed his physics teacher Jagdev Singh with a knife.

"Jagdev Singh, who received multiple injuries on his face, is out of danger," Police Inspector Digambar Singh said.

"Investigations reveal that on noticing that the classroom was in a state of disorder ...Jagdev scolded the student for indiscipline and disturbing the seating arrangements in the classroom," Digambar told reporters in Saharanpur.

"In a fit of rage, the teenager later attacked his teacher and ran away," he added.
