Patna: Two students of a government high school were electrocuted and three seriously injured in Bihar Tuesday when they were asked to repair a handpump by the principal, police said.

The incident took place at the school in Saran district, about 100 km from here, when about six students were repairing a handpump following the principal`s order.
"When students were busy repairing handpump, an iron pipe came in contact with a high voltage wire. Two of them were electrocuted and three injured. The injured were admitted at a private clinic at Ekma for treatment," a police officer said.

The officer said the principal was absconding.
Angry over the students` death, local residents ransacked school and blocked roads to protest the incident. They blamed the school principal and demanded his arrest.
