A college student was arrested on Friday in Noida on an attempt to murder charges after he allegedly pointed a pistol at another student.

24-year-old, a final year B.com student, Surya Kumar was detained a day after the incident occurred outside the Amity University in Sector 125. He is a resident of Dasna in Ghaziabad.

Allegedly, Kumar pointed the gun at Vivek Yadav, a resident of Safrabad village in Sector 73, who is a first-year MBA student in the university.

According to Yadav, the two had a spat last month over parking of vehicles on the university premises. "Parking inside the campus is not allowed for students. But Kumar was drunk and he got his car inside. I got hit on my leg by his vehicle, so I complained to my teachers. Kumar was scolded and told not to bring his vehicle inside the campus. After that he had warned me of dire consequences," he claimed.

Yadav said on Thursday, he was in his car at the parking lot outside the campus when Kumar confronted him.

"Kumar got on to the bonnet of my car and then latched on to the window while pointing the pistol at me. I called up the emergency police number for help," Yadav said.

A video of the incident went viral on the social media. 

Kumar has been charged under Indian Penal Code sections 307 (attempt to murder), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation), among others, the police said.
