Shillong, March 2: The Archbishop of Archdiocese of Shillong, Victor Lyngdoh has extended his support with the decision of the school authorities of St Xavier’s Higher Secondary School to halt all developmental work in Umoid until an amicable solution is reached.

Expressing solidarity with the Jesuit fathers, the Archbishop in a statement issued here said the recent incident at St. Xavier’s College, Umoid is a matter of great concern.

Archbishop Lyngdoh said that the decision to set up an educational institution in South West Khasi Hills District has been taken keeping in mind the urgent need for providing quality higher education to the area.

“The unprovoked brutal attack on innocent workers resulting in the lost of a precious life and leaving many others seriously injured is condemnable. Our hearts go out to the family members of the deceased worker, Late Raju Mondal and to all those who are injured”, he said.

The Archbishop has also expressed his gratefulness to the Government and Local Administration for their prompt action in handling the situation.

“On behalf of the Catholic Church, we would like to assure the Jesuits and the people of the area our prayerful support”, he said.

It may be mentioned that eight labourers were attacked by masked men on Wednesday night at 11 am at Umoid. One of the labourers succumbed to his injuries.
