KOLKATA: A missionary school in north Bengal, located about 70 km from Jalpaiguri town lodged a police complaint after finding threatening letters in the school premises.

The four hand-written letters written in Hindi language threatening to burn down the school and near-by church quoting if the nuns who run it did not leave immediately were found near a girls’ hostel.

The headmistress of the school on Sunday lodged the police complaint regarding the matter.

The police have stepped up the security at the St. Capitano Girl’s Higher Secondary School, said Ravindranath, the superintendent of police of Jalpaiguri district.

The first letter was found on March 11, three days before the attack on a convent school at Ranaghat in West Bengal where a 72-year-old nun was gang-raped.
