An interesting article from The Telegraph, against the backdrop of the recent arrest of an Indian student for allegedly stabbing his teacher.

Nikhil Dhar may or may not have stalked and stabbed his University of Massachusetts teacher, associate professor Mary Elizabeth Hooker, over his falling grades.
