Nagpur, Jan. 27. (PTI): Passion found a violent expression even with the deaf and dumb as a group of handicapped students killed their teacher enraged over her attempts to prevent mixing of boys with girls.

Twelve deaf and dumb students, including 10 girls, were arrested here last night for allegedly killing their teacher, police said today.

The students of a private deaf and dumb school here allegedly suffocated to death their teacher Nalini Gaikwad, as she objected to mixing of boys and girls, staying on two different floors, during evening hours, police said.

The two boys confessed that they hid themselves in a girls room and in the wee hours yesterday stifled the teacher who used to sleep with the girl inmates, police said.
