Ahmedabad: The youth who attacked former Haryana DGP SPS Rathore on Monday in Chandigarh court premises is a student of National Institute of Design (NID) here, officials at the premier design institute said.

"NID will take action against the student as per the prescribed norms of the institute in the event of a criminal case registered against him," NID director Pradyumna Vyas said.

"The youth identified as Utsav Sharma is pursuing post-graduate diploma in animation and film design from our institute," NID spokesperson Sameer More said.

"Sharma has completed the two-year course but is yet to receive his diploma certificate as he had not completed the internship which is mandatory," More said.

More said that the officials are checking the background of Sharma.

According to Chandigarh police, 68-year-old Rathore was stabbed by Sharma outside a local court there which is hearing his appeal in the Ruchika molestation case.

Police said Sharma was a resident of Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh and was studying in Gujarat.

Sharma had stabbed Rathore with a knife. He is in police custody and is being interrogated.
