Tawang firing: AAPSU to knock Apex Court’s door
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
Itagar, May 31: Expressing resentment over the state government constituted committees to find out facts in the Tawang police firing incident of May 02 last, the All Aruchal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has decided to file a PIL at the Supreme Court immediately.
“The state government has befooled the common people especially the grieved families of the deceased. It sheds off its responsibility by giving a press statement stating that the OC, DC and the SP of Tawang have been suspended but in real the only suspended officer is the SP,” asserted AAPSU general secretary Biru si in a statement today.
Informing that as soon as the SC reopens from its vacation, the AAPSU along with a Supreme Court senior advocate and Human Rights Law Network (HRLN) director, Colin Gonsalves would knock the door of the apex court.
“It’s been almost a month but still there is no information whatsoever from the investigation committee which is headed by a commissioner and local ADC. This is a clear indication that the government is trying to protect the guilty officers,” alleged si.
“As the home department of the state seems to be least bothered, we believe that it is AAPSU’s duty to provide justice to the grieved family,” he added. Further stating that various organizations from Tawang are serving ultimatums and representations demanding for a CBI inquiry into the incident and the Save Monk Region Federation (SMRF) is also standing with AAPSU, si informed that the AAPSU team along with Gonsalves would be leaving for Tawang on the first week of June to find testimony of the incident again, the statement added.
