A Class X dropout who was stalking a Class IX girl allegedly attacked her with a sword just inside the school gates in Talwandi Sabo of Bathinda on Tuesday morning. The girl somehow managed to ward off the attack, but suffered cuts on her arms in the process.
Talwandi Sabo deputy superintendent of police Barinder Singh and Talwandi Sabo station house officer Jagdish Kumar said, “A case of attempt to murder, wrongful restraint and criminal intimidation has been registered against Jasbir. No member of the boy’s family was at home after the incident. We are trying to arrest him.” In her statement to the police, the girl said she had just entered the school when Jasbir followed her inside and tried to attack her face with a sharp-edged weapon. As she put up both her arms to cover her face, her arms got slashed and her clothes, especially her salwaar, got drenched in blood.
