As in Gurugram murder case, Gujarat accused wanted school shut

who was hacked to death in a bathroom at Bharti Schoolin Vadodara’s Wadi area, fell victim to the design of the 16-year-old accused who wanted to disgrace the school. The accused wanted to disgrace his school for being reprimanded by a teacher.

The 16-year-old wanted to see the school closed when he killed Tadvi, who he met a couple of minutes before, in the bathroom of Bharti School on Friday. The accused revealed this to police after he was held from Valsad on Friday night.

The boy, who was at his aunt’s house in Valsad, told police he was agitated as a teacher had scolded him for not doing his homework two days before he committed the crime. 

“He felt insulted and wanted to get the school closed. He then planned to kill someone in the school so it would be forced to shut down,” said an official.

Police said the boy’s planning was almost foolproof and that if two schoolboys hadn’t been in the washroom and seen him commit the crime, the killer would not have been identified. Police said the boy even removed his shirt before stabbing Tadvi so it wouldn’t get stained.

After stabbing Tadvi, the accused fled to his aunt’s house and changed his clothes. When his father came to know of the incident, he boarded a bus with his son and reached Valsad. However, by the time they reached Valsad, the two boys who were witness to the crime, had revealed the killers identity. As soon as the duo reached Valsad they were nabbed with the help of local police there, said police.

“Tadvi collapsed after the first stab, but the perpetrator repeatedly stabbed Tadvi in his neck,” said ACP S G Patil.
