Palampur, April 20

A college girl was stabbed with a sharp-edged weapon by a youth at a local bus stand here this evening. The youth tried to kill the girl but a few alert passengers and passers-by overpowered the attacker and handed him over to the police.

The girl suffered over one dozen wounds on her body. Later, she was shifted to Tanda Medical College (TMC) in a critical condition.

A big crowd assembled on the spot and demanded the custody of the attacker. However, the police managed to take him to the local police station. Later, a huge crowd assembled outside the police station and demanded action against the culprit.
