Four school students’ were arrested for their alleged involvement in connection with the Sunday’s crude bomb attack inside their school here in Meghalaya, police said today.
On Sunday’s wee hours, the four hurled a petrol bomb at the office of the Principal of St Edmunds’ School, one of the oldest educational institutions in the North Eastern States.
“The four were formally arrested today after they admitted to their crime and are booked under section 427 and 326 IPC,” Superintendent of Police, AR Mawthoh said. Quoting the arrested students, Mr Mawthoh said that the four launched the attack after School authorities did not select them as part of the School football team. This apart, he said that the students had also personal grudge with some of their teachers.
Meanwhile, all the four were produced in court and remanded to juvenile custody, even as School authorities hinted that the four erring pupil may be face expulsion. Earlier, various educational institutions have expressed shock over the incident and said such incident 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.
