Ukhrul, November 02: Amidst confusion over the sudden announcement/information that the last date for filling up the NBSE forms for the 2006 examination is today, more than 868 students from 30 private schools of Ukhrul District have left for Dimapur since yesterday.

When this correspondent went to TKS (Tangkhul Katamnao Shaklong) office to take stock of the sudden development it was found out that over thousands of people including parents of the students and their teachers gathered around the TKS office who were caught totally unaware by the development.

When asked about the sudden development, the parents stated that no prior information of such kind were notified by the school authority and the student organization.

The parents said that that the form fill up should be actually done at each school and submitted by the school authority to the Board concerned.

However, today’s information is very discouraging and uncalled for as the situation in Nagaland is very tense and the parents do not like to take chances for their children, they said.

Sources from TKS office informed that the given time was too limited and added that it was notified at the 11th hour.

To help the students and the parents and provide them guidance, ANSAM members have been stationed at Senapati to escort them till Nagaland and then the NSF will escort the students till they reach the Centre (Dimapur ).

Altogether 11 buses left since yesterday carrying 865 students apart from 20 Parents and 30 (thirty) Teachers from Ukhrul accompanying the students.

Eight buses carrying 656 had earlier left yesterday around 7.30 pm and reached reached Senapati at 2 am.

Another 209 students left today at around 1.45pm from the TKS premises said, Christina Shingnaisui, AGS, TKS.

However, Jessami students had already earlier left for Nagaland via the Pffusuro road when they were contacted.
