Nagaland News

Dimapur, June 9: The Commission for Education Diocese of Kohima (CEDOK) has expressed shock at the inhuman act of physical violence and arson meted out to the Administrator of Don Bosco Higher Secondary School, Mon on June 8 and said any act of physical assault and violence is not acceptable in a civilized society.

In a press release, CEDOK Secretary, Rev Dr Jacob Charalel said Don Bosco School, Mon was established by the Salesian Society in 1980 under the initiative of the Catholic Church to extend her educational mission even to the remotest areas of the state. In spite of the hurdles and unfavorable circumstances, the Church took up the challenge to run the school in order to be beacons of light and knowledge to the people of Mon area, he added.
Stating that an assault on a simple and unassuming educationist like the Administrator of DBHSS, Mon is not only an attack on a person, but on the very institution of education, in total disregard for the values of society, CEDOK said the incident has caused a non erasable stain on the educational history of Mon.
While appreciating the statements and actions by the Student Unions of Mon and Wakching and others, CEDOK condemned the incident in strongest terms and hope that the concerned authorities will ensure that justice is done and no such incident occur to any educationist in the future.
MTSU: The Mon Town Students’ Union has condemned the incident in which Administrator of Don Bosco Higher Secondary School, Mon was brutally attacked at his residential quarter on June 8 by one Phuhsai, who was found to be a former student of the school

The Union appealed to the law enforcing agencies/legal authority to investigate and give the culprit a befitting punishment as per the laws.
The Union also warned all the individual or groups that any king of inhuman/illegal act within its jurisdiction would not be tolerated. (Page News Service)
