Itagar, Dec 15: Acting tough against bandh callers, the Capital district administration and police has remanded Aruchal Youth Organisation (AYO) president Giogi Talar and general secretary Kaling Tasing into 12-day judicial custody on being produced before Capital DM Sandeep Kumar Singh here on Wednesday.

The duo were arrested on Tuesday by Itagar Police team led by OC inspector T Bage under the supervision of SDPO Make Bui and SP Dr A Kaon under section 3(1) of Aruchal Pradesh Unlawful (Prevention) Act, 2014, the DM order said. Following a preventive detention order issued by the DM, the arrests were executed as the AYO had given a 12-hour Capital bandh call on November 28 last in protest against the state government’s alleged lackadaisical attitude in meeting its nine-point charter of demands.

The demands included continuation of governor order on officiating, functiol and out of turns promotions, CBI probe into infamous multi-crore PDS scam and abduction drama of SIC chief M J Chauhan at Tipi, eviction drive against illegally encroached government quarters within Capital and district headquarters.

The other demands include, appointment of chairman/vice chairman from among elected MLAs, early construction of Green Field Airport, revocation of District Based Entrepreneurship Act and Mon and Patkai Autonomous Councils and making former chief minister late Kalikho Pul’s diary public.
