As the defendant is under 18 he cannot be named.

The defendant is accused of the murder which happened between 11.16 AM and 11.44 AM, inside a toilet on the 4th floor of Block D of the school. According to the prosecutor, the defendant was previously “treated” at the Institute of Mental Health.

The police received a call for help at the school at about 11.40am on 19 July, and the victim was found with multiple wounds at the toilet, lying motionless.

He was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene, and the axe was also seized as a case exhibit.

Investigations revealed that the victim and the alleged killer didn’t know each other, and that the boy bought the axe online.
