In a devastating incident at Shiv Nadar University in Greater Noida, a third-year Arts student shot and killed his classmate before turning the gun on himself. The incident, which took place on Thursday afternoon, has left the university community in shock. The police have identified the deceased students as Anuj Singh, a sociology (BA) student from Amroha district, and Sneha Chaurasia, a Kanpur native. While the motive behind the murder-suicide is yet to be determined, reports suggest that it occurred following a refusal of a gift by the female student.
Details of the Incident:
According to the police spokesperson, the tragic event unfolded around 1.30 pm at Shiv Nadar University, situated in the Dadri police station area.

Shortly after their interaction, Singh shot Chaurasia with a pistol and fled to his room in the boys’ hostel, where he took his own life.
