Islamabad: A Christian teenager has been beaten to death by his classmates in Pakistan. Sharoon Masih was the only Christian in his year and was attacked after he apparently drank from the same glass as a Muslim.
The 17-year-old had only been at MC Model Boys Government School Burewala in Punjab for three days before the incident. The teacher who was present at the time of the attack, Nazir Mol, said he did not notice the incident as he was reading a newspaper, iNews reported.
One student, Muhammad Ahmed Rana, has been arrested so far and he has apparently claimed that he lashed out at Mr Masih after he broke the screen on his phone.
Mr Rana has refused to name any of the others who were involved in the attack. An autopsy revealed that Mr Rana died after repeated blows to his body and his head. His mother described the death as a “huge” loss. “No proper investigation is being done,” Mr Masih’s mother, Razia Bibi, told .
