An 18-year-old was arrested late Monday arrested for allegedly stabbing a minor girl, his classmate, at Bijpur in North-24 Paraganas as she refused to get involved with him.
A case of attempt to murder has been registered against the boy, a resident of Bijpur, following a complaint by the father of the victim late Monday. Both are Class XII students in the same school.
Sources in the police said the incident took place when the two were at a tuition class on Monday evening. The family of the victim, who is 17 years old, has alleged that the boy had been stalking her for over two years. “He was arrested under relevant sections of the IPC and under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act,” said a police officer.
