Fag End

A teacher is recovering after he was shot by a former pupil - five years after he reported him to his parents for smoking.

Bitter Krunal Amin, 20, burst into his former tutor's home in Dehgam, western India, during a family party and blasted away with a pistol, say police.

Before shooting victim Krunal Shah, 35, in the stomach Amin said: "Don't you remember, you ruined my life five years ago?"

"You caught me smoking and complained to my father. My father has broken all contacts with me since then," he added.

Shah was only saved because the home made gun fell apart after the first shot.

"I now remember that Krunal used to attend my classes. An irregular student, I caught him smoking and reported the matter to his father. That was the last I saw of him. I had no idea he still held a grudge against me," he said as he recovered in hospital.

Police inspector Mihail Shaikh said: "The boy comes from a wealthy family, but after the smoking incident his father turned off the tap and he had to work in menial jobs to make ends meet. He has been booked and arrested for attempted murder."
