Gurgaon: The Gurgaon police detained 10 people, including a driver and conductor of a school bus and a staff member, in connection with the killing of a seven-year-old boy, who was found inside the washroom of a school with his throat slit open, on Friday.
“It seems that after the boy was attacked, he tried to run outside for help. Blood was spotted outside the washroom, which is located close to the main lobby. The school staff took the injured child to a hospital and informed the police about the incident,” added the police official.
