Teacher shot at by student in UP's Sitapur school lands in hospital

Onlookers overpowered the shooter and disarmed him. The shooting incident has been captured by a CCTV. Police differ on his whereabouts.

LUCKNOW, Sept 24: A Class X student shot at his teacher in a school in Sitapur in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday. He shot three times and injured his teacher, who has been admitted to a Lucknow hospital.

Onlookers overpowered the shooter and disarmed him. The teacher also fought back while the student assaulted him with the butt of his pistol. The shooting incident was captured by a CCTV. The teacher is seen sitting on the ground while the onlookers hold the student.

The police said they have seized the country-made pistol and detained the student, a minor. In another version, they said the student ran away with the pistol.

The student had got angry after the teacher reprimanded him for picking a quarrel with his classmate.
