YAMUNANAGAR: The final words of the school principal, who was allegedly murdered by Class 12 student, was “Mujhe bachao, mujhe bachao (Save me, Save me)”
Ritu Chhabra reportedly kept repeating these words till she was conscious and was on her way to the hospital, reported Indian Express.
On Saturday, the 47-year-old Swami Vivekanand School principal Ritu Chhabra was sitting in her office, when the alleged minor accused – also a student of the same school walked in. The student pumped four bullets into her with a .32 bore gun.
The student had been recently suspended and expelled from the school.
