The Euro International school shooting occurred on December 12, 2007 at Euro International, a private secondary school in Gurgaon, Haryana, India. The gunmen, 14-year-old students Akash Yadav and 13-year-old Manish Bihari, shot and killed 14-year-old Abhishek Tyagi.[citation needed]


Eighth-grade student Akash Yadav had gotten into a fight with Tyagi, but it was resolved by school authorities. The school had organised sports day on 9 December 2007 and Yadav, along with his friend, planned to shoot Tyagi, but their plan failed as Tyagi went to his home earlier. Yadav instead decided to shoot Tyagi on Tuesday as Monday was a holiday. On 11 December, Yadav stole his father's gun, that was left unlocked, and hid it in the school washroom under a toilet seat. At the time of dispersal in the afternoon, Tyagi was going to his bus room when Yadav called out to him from behind. Tyagi's leg got stuck in the stair's grill while Yadav approached him and fired three times, killing Tyagi. Yadav then requested his friend Manish Bihari to fire. Bihari missed.[citation needed]
