Meghalaya police today asked parents of five school students of St Edmunds’ here to appear before the police in connection with the crude bomb attack.
Education Minister M Ampareen Lyngdoh has asked the police and school authorities to ensure that such incidents do not recur in future. “We have questioned school authorities and students with the bomb attack and parents of five students have been asked to appear before us,” a police official said. On Sunday’s wee hours, miscreants hurled a petrol bomb at the office of the Principal of St Edmunds’ School, one of the oldest educational institution here in Meghalaya. The attack damaged two window panes and some furnitures inside the office were damaged. Today, a special police team led by Deputy Superintendent of Police (Crime), Vivek Syiem cross-examined the school principal MT Syiem, faculty members and some students.
Meanwhile, various educational institutions has expressed shock over the incident and said should incident should should be condemned. “It is a matter of concern that an education institution was attacked by the miscreants. If there are any grievances, they (affected person’s) should sit across the table rather than resorting to violent means, St Anthony’s College Principal Fr. I Warpakma said. Most of the parents and guardians of the students studying in St Edmund’s School also expressed shock over the incident. “Whoever commits this act should be punish as per the law. It is an insult to the temple of learning,” I Kharbyngar, a mother of a student said.
Past pupil of St Edmund’s also visited the school to find out what really led to the incident as such an instance was unheard of in the past. “It is unfortunate that the miscreants chose an educational institution to let out their frustration,” an ex-Edmundian, Andrew W Lyngdoh said, while urging the law-enforcing agency to nab those perpetrators behind the incident.
