Three students of Don Bosco High School at Tangla in Udalguri district fled from their hostel on Tuesday last which has created palpable sensation among the boarders of the school and the guardians of the missing students.
While one of the students was traced in Harisinga Railway Station area the same day, as informed by the school authorities, the two others have still remained untraced.
Of the 130 enrolled in the boarding school, three students were out from their school hostel for shopping and didn’t return back.
“Many students buy necessary items from the outside stores and we permit them as they return back on time but the students of eight standard didn’t return back following which we registered an FIR at Tangla PS,” Rector-cum-Parish Priest, Fr. Marcus Lakra told Northeast Now.
Dominick Moshahary, the father of one of the students, said that incident is a clear case of security lapse on the part of the school management.
“There should have been proper security arrangements for the safety of our children. We admitted our wards in this school to see progress in their education,” Moshahary said.
The parents also alleged that the school authorities should have maintained entry-exist register of the boarders.
