Students Accused of Killing for Day Off

‘Three boarding school students are accused of strangling two small boys in the hope that classes would be suspended after the deaths, police said Saturday.

The three students, ages 12 and 13, confessed to strangling an 8-year-old boy and his 5-year-old brother so that their school would close down, said S. Sethi, a police officer in the Jalna district, about 200 miles east of Mumbai.

“When questioned, the boys said they knew this school gave a holiday when a child had died last year and thought they could get another holiday this year,” Sethi said.’
