    AMRITSAR: Gunshots rang across a government school in Amritsar when two groups of students - belonging to class 11 and 12 - opened fire on each other, leaving three injured.

    The firing occurred around 11am after the students clashed just as they entered Bhagalikalaan Government Senior Secondary School. Rattled students ran helter skelter as shots were fired.

    Three students - Shehbaj Singh, Lovepreet Singh and Parampreet Singh - received bullet injuries to their legs and feet. They were rushed to the hospital.

    Police officials said that shots were fired from two pistols allegedly by two students, who fled the spot.

    Cops said the firing was the fallout of an altercation between two groups of students of class 11 and 12.

    Earlier, a clash had broken out in the class. Later, there was a scuffle between two groups armed with pistols and hockey sticks in the school courtyard, sources said.

    SHO Majitha police station Major Singh said that the two groups were students of the same school. It was triggered due to an old animosity.

    "Bullet hit the lower limb of the students. The culprits managed to escape," he said. He added a case has been registered and probe was on. "The principal of the school and teachers weren't aware of the simmering animosity between the students' groups and the ensuing clash. It was a shock for them too. The classmates were aware of the old animosity but even they didn't expect that the altercation could take such a violent shape," said Gursewak Singh, DSP Rural.

    Shocked to read this but how come such young children have access to pistols that to in schools. Feels sorry for the other children who have hurt themselves with no fault of theirs. Such behavior should be punished severely so that other students don't attempt same.
