Turkish student stabs academic in revenge
A university student in the southeastern province of Siirt allegedly stabbed academic Tahir Dündar in the back today in the reported belief that the professor was the reason he was suspended from class.
M.S.E., 19, was suspended from university for six months after being caught by Dündar while allegedly cheating on an exam.
The student stabbed Dündar in the street today, according to reports.
Dündar was immediately taken to the hospital after receiving first aid at the scene before being transported to the Training and Research Hospital of Dicle University by a helicopter due to risks associated with attempting to remove the knife from his body.
The student was captured by police after he fled the scene.
