Two students of the Tshwane University of Technology in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga were found lying in a pool of their own blood at the weekend.,
Police say the man and woman were discovered in a room at the Urban Cove student residence.
“It appears the students, aged between 25 and 21, were both stabbed with a knife. The victims are believed to be in a relationship,” says a statement from the police.
The pair are recovering in hospital.
Details surrounding the incident were not immediately clear.
Meanwhile, police have opened a culpable homicide case after a TUT student was killed amid a Fees-Must-Fall march in Soshanguve, outside Pretoria last week.
Benjamin Phehla, a former Student Representative Council (SRC) member, was severely injured when a motorist drove into a group of protesting students.
Students were marching against the university’s decision to deny them permission to use the university’s buses to attend a mass Fees-Must-Fall march at the Union Buildings.
Several other students were injured. No arrests have been made.[Source: SABC]
