CHENNAI: In a shocking incident in neighbouring Chengalpattu, a bike-borne trio slit the throat of a Class 12 girl who was walking to her school on Thursday morning, and escaped from the spot.
According to the police, the girl from Nalloor village in Chengalpattu is a student at a government girls’ school in Kadapakkam. On Thursday morning, when she was on her way to school, three men on a bike came near her, apparently on the pretext of asking for directions to go to an address.
“When they were near her, one of them slit her throat with a blade while another shoved the girl. They then escaped from the scene,” said officials. Seeing the girl standing on the road bleeding, a passerby informed her parents about it. Her father Sakthivel, a farmer, immediately rushed there and admitted her to the Chengalpattu government hospital.
Sakthivel then approached the Sunambedu police station and lodged a complaint. The police are now hunting for the trio who attacked the girl.
