Drunk student kills hostel mate over closing toilet door
An engineering student was fatally stabbed by his hostel mate during a fight over closing the door of a common toilet. Another student, who tried to intervene in the fight, ended up with stab wounds.

The incident occurred at a students’ hostel run by the Devaraj Urs Backward Classes Development Corporation near BEL 1st Stage, Byadarahalli, around 11 pm on Thursday. Rohith (22), a third-year student at East West Institute of Technology, was angry that his hostel mate, Ravish (21), hadn’t closed the door of a toilet after using it. Ravish, a third-year BA student at Government First Grade College, Vijayanagar, and a native of Kunigal, Tumakuru district, had returned from a party and was visibly drunk. He reportedly caused a ruckus in the hostel, which disturbed other students trying to fall asleep. Thereafter, he went to the toilet.

Rohith’s room is located close to the toilet. As Ravish came out of the toilet, Rohith asked him to flush the restroom and close its door saying the smell was unbearable. But Ravish refused to do so, leading to an argument. The students soon got into fisticuffs.

Another student, Amaresh (21), a second-year engineering student from Gadag, tried to intervene. In a fit of rage, Ravish picked a knife and stabbed both Rohith and Amaresh.

Hearing their screams, the warden rushed in and found them lying in a pool of blood and Ravish trying to flee. He called the jurisdictional Byadarahalli police, who dashed to the spot and caught Ravish. They took Rohith and Amaresh to hospital where Rohith was declared brought dead while Amaresh is being treated. Rohith hailed from Solur village near Nelamang­a­l­a.
