A class XII student allegedly shot dead his school principal, Ritu Chhabra, with his father’s licensed revolver in Yamunanagar town of Haryana on Saturday, January 20. The boy was caught at the spot and handed over to the police. She was a teacher for 19 years.

According to the police, the shooting happened between 11:30 am to 12 noon when the PTM (parents-teachers meeting) was going on at Swami Vivekanand School, a private school in Yamunanagar.

Ritu Chhabra was shot at four times and once the incident came to light she was immediately rushed to the hospital. She succumbed to her injuries in the hospital.

SHO of Yamunanagar’s City Police Station, Om Prakash, said that the accused had turned 18 just a few days back. “He was not doing well in studies and was scolded by the principal,” the SHO said. “During interrogation, the student said that the principal, who was his economics teacher also, used to torture him,” said the police spokesperson, as reported by The Indian Express.

The boy allegedly stole his father’s .32 bore revolver by breaking an iron almirah and came to school on Saturday. “He tried to submit papers related to practical work but was not allowed to do so. Then, he entered the principal’s room to see whether there was anyone else in the office. When he found she was alone in the office, he opened fire at her,” said the spokesperson.


Family in grief

Vishal Pandey, a close friend of the family told The Logical Indian “She was a very nice human being. None of us expected that something like this could ever happen.” He further added, “Previously, when we were in school, even we were scolded and threatened by our teachers that we would not be allowed to sit for exams and other similar stuff. But none of us even thought of doing something like this.”


Student in jail

The Yamunanagar Police Inspector Om Prakash told The Logical Indian that the student has been sent to jail and the father has also been arrested for keeping his gun without proper security.

The Logical Indian condemns the student’s act and sympathises with the family.
