NAWANSHAHR: Students and teachers of nearby Government Senior Secondary School Musapur had a narrow escape this morning when at around 9.15, lightning struck a tree standing in the middle of the school compound.

However, though it was the prayer time in the school, no one was injured as all the students and teachers were in their rooms in view of inclement weather in the area since last evening. School principal Rajesh Kumar said the electric shock sliced the tree into two parts. He said it also caused a considerable scare among both the teachers and the students.
