Students in India hold candlelight vigil for 19 children killed in Texas shooting

Students in India’s northern Amritsar city held a candlelight vigil at school in remembrance of the 19 children and two teachers killed by a teenage gunman after he stormed into a Texas elementary school.

Sandeep Saren, principal of Sareen Infotech Bharteeya Vidya Niketan Senior Secondary School, described the latest mass shooting as “heart-wrenching”.

“Such incidents should not take place as students go to school to study. Those parents have lost their sons and daughters. It is a very sad incident,” Saren said, as he stood among students who chanted prayers for the victims while holding placards and candles.

The gunman murdered at least 19 children and two teachers after storming into Robb Elementary School on Tuesday (May 24), the latest bout of gun-fueled mass killing in the United States and the nation’s worst school shooting in nearly a decade.
