Itagar, Aug 22: The mother of an 11-year-old girl, who was allegedly molested by Joint Commissioner of Tax and Excise Tani Jongkey has alleged that the higher authorities are trying to save the officer.
In a letter to Chief Minister Pema Khandu, she has appealed to the Chief Minister to intervene so that justice prevails.
Jongkey was reportedly evading arrest for a long time and had been applying for anticipatory bail.
She said that the culprit is a government official holding a responsible post. If he continues with his post, he may try to influence the investigation of the case using his power and position.
“No doubt, the case is under subjudice and the law will take its own course of action, but there is one area which needs your immediate intervention. The culprit should be suspended immediately from his post by the government. But till date, the file for his suspension is not moving any further and instead it is simply gathering dust in the department. The authorities concerned are not cooperating in the case,” she wrote in the letter.
When his anticipatory bail plea was rejected by the court, he got himself admitted in Tomo Riba Institute of Health and Medical Sciences, harlagun on health grounds. He is still admitted in the hospital, because of which the police have not been able to arrest him.
