Mahesh, an office boy at the school, allegedly shot the deceased and injured her friend within the school premises on Tuesday night. Questions have been raised over how he came to be in possession of the gun.

Dr. Ballal,a  medical instructor at Manipal Hospital, where the other injured girl is being treated, said the victim suffered multiple injuries to her jaw, mouth and face and needed a surgery.
