A female school teacher was stabbed to death in Sahibganj town allegedly by three students, police said today.
The students went to the residence of 57-year-old teacher Rita Biswas at Netaji Subhas Colony Tuesday on the pretext of taking tuition and stabbed her in the stomach when she opened the door, Deputy Superintendent of Police Shashi Bhusan told reporters.
The victim was declared dead on admission to hospital, he said.
Victim's 64-year-old husband was admitted to the hospital with injuries he suffered while trying to resist the attackers, the police officer said.
"The matter is still under investigation," he said when asked whether the students were of the same school where she taught and what could have been the reason for the crime.
