Itanagar, June 27: Criticizing the BJP government for its alleged failure to control law & order in the state and deliver on developmental front, the Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) has demanded Chief Minister Pema Khandu to step down from the chair taking moral responsibility.
The APCC while extending its solidarity to the family of Toko Yame, a class XII student who was studying in Tawang, and also the students’ organization fighting for justice since last 10 months, vehemently condemned the ‘pre-planned’ murder of Yame and criticized the government and Tawang district administration for allegedly shielding the culprits involved in the inhumane crime.
“It is understood that 12 members involved in heinous crime were arrested and released soon without any proper interrogation and now they are wandering on large and subsequently the investigating officer and officer in-charge of Tawang police station were transferred out to derail the investigation. These are the clear references of Pema Khandu government’s shielding those persons involved in the crime,” the party alleged.
It said the BJP government should shoulder the whole responsibility for derailing the case by posting new police officers, who are totally unaware of the case, which led to ten months delay in getting justice in the late Yame murder case.
It demanded immediate re-arrest of all those culprits involved in the case and proper interrogation should be done or the case be handed over to CBI forthwith as demanded by various student organizations to unearth the truth.
Further, the APCC also extended solidarity to the victims of IAF bombing practices at Dollungmukh under Kamle district and demanded immediate release of suitable compensation to Bini Todum, who is still undergoing treatment at TRIHMS, Naharlagun. The APCC wondered why BJP government in the state is silence on all the cases like late Toko Yame and Ojing Taying murder case and IAF bombarding practice.
A student leader, Ojing Taying was murdered by miscreants last year but police are clueless about the assailants. The APCC demanded the state government, particularly the home department to hand over the case to CBI to unearth the facts behind the case and deliver justice to Ojing Taying’s family.
