Patna, Jan 17: A polytechnic student was stabbed 17 times in Bihar's Rohtas district on Monday morning, even as he was talking on the phone with his father, police said.
Prince Kumar Singh was alone in the house located in Karbala road locality under the moffusil police station when attackers forcibly entered the house and stabbed him.
