  1. Are we not sure that the friend knows something about the stabbing of the deceased. He should have raised an alarm or report to the police or even the school authorities as early as possible. But he continued to watch the football match in town. The deceased kept too long in the pool of blood that is why he died a few minutes after reaching the hospital.
