1628

IMPHAL, February 9: Two premier Catholic run schools of the State namely St Joseph and Little Flower School, closed down today following threat notes left by miscreant.

Speaking to IFP, a father of St Joseph school informed that they found a white paper written in red ink sticking at the front gate of the school saying `school matam kaktana thingjille-Manipur Maoist` in the wee hour today.

A similar note was also reportedly found at the gate of the Little Flower School.

Following the incident the school authorities decided to close down the school to avoid panick amongst students, said the father adding that they will resume normal classes tomorrow.

The school session commenced from February 5.

He further asserted that the schools did not complain about the incident to the police.

When enquired whether there was any threat from militant groups, the father responded that there has been no threat of any sort from any militant groups in recent times.

Claiming that he had never heard of any group called Manipur Maoist, the father assumed that it might be carried out by individuals out of frustration when they were unable to have their wards admitted into the schools.
