A Class 12 student of a private school got entangled in a rivalry by lending money to a wannabe criminal of his age. When the student asked him to return his money, the other boy attacked him with a knife on his neck and head.
Saiyam Parekh, a Class 12 student of Bright Higher Secondary School met Zohran Khan at a snooker pool club around a month ago. Zohran, in need of money for fulfilling his luxurious desires took up to arms. “He carried a knife all the time,” said Saiyam.
“Zohran was expelled from Ilva School around a year ago because of his vices,” said Saiyam. He was in Class XI that time but never took to education thereafter, he added. Zohran started threatening the Class 12 boy and extorted money from him. “For the last one month, Zohran extorted about Rs 5,000 to Rs 6,000 from me,” said Saiyam.
Saiyam said that he had to borrow from his friends to pay him. “I was scared of him initially,” he said.
Gathering some courage, Saiyam asked his money back from Zohran and result was a gang war between their friends.
On Tuesday, Saiyam and his friends went to Zohran to take back money, but to their surprise, Zohran along with Sufiyan and his others attacked them. Zohran took out a knife and attacked Saiyam on neck and head leaving deep gash.
On Thursday, Saiyam’s father went along with him to complain about the incident to Ilva school authorities. Saiyam’s father, Pawan Parekh said, “Zohran was present in front of the school campus. I tried to speak to him but his attitude was very rash.”
Zohran damaged their car’s front bumper and fled from the spot. The boys and their parents went to the police station and lodged a complaint against Zohran and his friends.
Police have registered a case under various sections of IPC. Police said as the investigation progresses, the charges might be revised, once it is proved that Zohran extorted money from Saiyam.
