This incident happened on Tuesday in Old Town of the city. According to New Indian Express, the class 10 boy was allegedly attacked with a pocket knife inside a classroom after a fight. While speaking to New Indian Express, the victim, who took 13 stitches on the head, said, “On the evening of Januray 20, near Old Town police station, we were travelling home after school. When an argument broke out between us, he hurled casteist slurs at me.”

"Further, on the next morning (January 21), when I walked inside the class, he attacked me with a pocket knife in my head, neck and hand. I was soon taken to Cuddalore Government General Hospital for treatment by a teacher. However, after returning to the school, I was told to claim that I was injured by falling off the bench and if I dared to speak the truth, I may not be able to write the exams," the victim further added.

Hours after this attack, the school management denied the incident taking place. Meanwhile, other sources allege that the school management had warned the victim not to say anything in details but rather reveal that he fell off the bench.
