A 17-year-old youth studying in Class 10 was stabbed to death by his five classmates in the national capital, police said on Friday.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (northwest) Usha Rangnani said a PCR call regarding the stabbing of a student by his peers was received at Adarsh Nagar police station on September 29 after which the police staff reached the spot and the injured, a resident of Burari, was rushed to the hospital.
