Bhanjanagar: A class X student from Borasinga School under the Gangpur police limits was seriously injured after he was allegedly stabbed with a knife by his fellow classmate in the campus on Wednesday.
The accused has been identified as Subham Bhola.
The injured Amit Nayak has been admitted to a nearby hospital in a critical condition. School authorities have detained the alleged attacker, says reports.
According to reports, initially both the students were sharing jokes and having fun. But later things took a serious turn leading to heated arguments between the two. Matters turned worse when one of the students lost temper and attacked the other with a knife, leaving him seriously injured.
