The school closed for a day in protest while parents also held an emergency meeting. The parents demanded that Kakuto Assumi reconstruct the school wall that was broken, within a period of one-week and that he tender a letter of apology to vice principal, Rev Fr. Benard Topno with assurance that he would not repeat such an act. A core committee of the body was formed, comprising of 15 members, to expedite and facilitate the matter at the earliest. Members of the core committee met with DC Dimapur Maongwati Aier in his office chamber and appraised him of the meeting. Speaking to Nagaland post over the phone, the DC Maongwati Aier said he has issued an order to Kakuto Assumi to reconstruct the broken wall within 10 days and also apologize in written to the aggrieved person.
