PASIGHAT, May 16: Being aggrieved over delay in justice, family members of Ojing Taying, who was brutally murdered in Itanagar during July last year, have demanded Arunachal government to hand over the case to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
The chief functionaries of Boring Olung Welfare Society (Community organisation) of East Siang, who addressed the reporters in Itanagar on Tuesday, lamented that the capital police are yet to make remarkable headway in this case even after eleven months have passed from taking over investigation. It demanded the state’s home department to hand over the case to CBI as the Special Investigation Team (SIT) has miserably failed to solve the case during the long period.
Ojing Taying of Ruksin village in East Siang district was a student leader. He succumbed to severe head injury due to attack by unidentified miscreants in Itanagar during July last year.
On the other hand, the family of late Toko Yame, who was brutally murdered at Tawang in September last year, also demanded the investigation to be handed over to CBI. The decease father Koya Yame, who was waiting several months for justice, reportedly lost confidence over state police.
Aggrieved Koya Yame, who was too addressing the reporters in Itanagar on Tuesday, expressed his non-confidence over SIT entrusted investigation as the police are not yet able to trace any clue behind his son’s murder.
Yame’s semi-decomposed body was recovered on 16th September last year near a waterfall in Tawang and the murder was suspected to be following a scuffle with the local students there.
The sufferer believes that his son was killed on communal issue and many public leaders of the district and even police personnel were involved with the incident.
It may be recalled that, more than 30 persons were detained on suspicion, but all of them released on the ground of being juveniles. Later the superintendent of police of Tawang along with many police officers was transferred to hide the reality, he alleged.
Meanwhile, All East Kameng District Students’ Union has expressed discontent over failure of the state police in solving the case and demanded the government to hand over the case to the CBI without further delay.
