AESDSU demands CBI probe

Ojing Taying murder case

Our correspondent
Itanagar, May 4: The All East Siang District Students’ Union (AESDSU) has demanded the State government to hand over the murder case of Ojing Taying to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), if the Special Investigation Team (SIT) fails to make a breakthrough within a month.
The union said that the case was handed over to the SIT on April 27 last, but even after 11 months of Taying’s death, his brutal murder remains a mystery as police had failed to make any progress in the case and is still clueless about the perpetrators.
Expressing disappointment over inordinate delay in cracking the case, AESDSU convener Yon Taki stated that no advancement had been made on Taying’s case by the police despite the assurance from the Capital Complex superintendent of police to solve it within six months.
“The police did not care to inform the family or the union that the case has been passed on to the SIT,” Yon lamented.
AESDSU president Oyin Yosung questioned the way the police was handling the case, saying that the police should have looked at every possible angle to nab the culprit.
Union’s general secretary Tonong Darang said that the capital police should have also carefully verified the mobile data and all call records of the area from where late Taying’s body was found.
“This might help in zeroing down the suspect’s mobile number from the location during the period when the murder was executed,” he said.
Affirming to continuously chase the police till justice is delivered, the union also pleaded with the State government to understand the agony of the bereaved family members, especially late Taying’s mother who is reportedly still under trauma and awaiting justice for her son.
Ojing Taying was attacked by two unidentified persons on June 10 last year at Niti Vihar here, and succumbed to his injuries four days later in a hospital in Guwahati.
