A regular fight in the class over a seat turned bloody in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr district when one Class 10 student shot dead his classmate, the police said.

The two boys - both 14 years old - had a fight over seats in the class on Wednesday, police said.

One of them was so enraged by the fight that he got his uncle's gun to school and shot the other one dead on Thursday.

"The two apparently had a fight about sitting in class yesterday. The accused went home and stole a licensed revolver belonging to his uncle, who is in the army and currently home on leave," senior police officer Santosh Kumar Singh said.

"He came to class and shot the other student. He was taken into custody at the scene itself," the police officer added.

The cops also recovered another country-made pistol from his bag, suggesting how keen he was to carry out the shooting.

The incident happened at around 11 am after the first two periods.

The victim was shot thrice, in the head, the chest and stomach. The boy died on the spot.

Following the shooting, the boy tried to run away. He also fired in the air to discourage others from catching him. However, a few teachers managed to hold him and take his gun away, police said.

The teachers called the police after which he was taken into custody.
