Some properties of the school were destroyed by the students before policemen arrived at the scene.

According to an eyewitness:
“He (the deceased) told the teacher he came late due to illness. At that point, the principal, who was passing by asked the teacher the cause of the discussion. The principal ordered the teacher to flog the student for coming late and he slumped in the process. They tried to resuscitate him but it was too late.”
