NINE PERSONS were arrested on Friday for allegedly ransacking a missionary school following the death of two children in a road accident at Barnagar near here, police said.

On the complaint by the school’s principal, they were arrested for damaging furniture and breaking windowpanes at St Thomas H S School on Thursday, Superintendent of Police Jaideep Prasad said.

A mob had attacked the school and accused it of creating a traffic hazard for children by keeping one of its gates closed.

The mob brought down a portion of the school wall, damaging some statues after Nikita (four) and Krishnpal (six) were hit by a truck and killed when they were on way to the school, police said.

Though markets opened and normalcy returned to the town on Friday, the police were keeping a sharp vigil, SP said.
