Itanagar, July 5: Lok Sabha MP from Arunachal Pradesh Ninong Ering has requested the Union Home Ministry to transfer the Oijing Taying death case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The Congress MP from Arunachal East Parliamentary Constituency in a letter to Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday urged him to immediately shift the case to the premier investigation agency to expedite the investigation and deliver justice to the victim, stating that the state police have failed to make any breakthrough in the case.
“I am deeply pained with the fact that even after 11 months, the investigating agency failed to make any headway in the case,” Ering wrote in the letter.
“A brutal murder of a young and promising youth cannot remain inconclusive and the culprit(s) must be brought to book,” Ering said in his letter
Meanwhile, the All East Siang District Students’ Union (AESDSU) has taken strong reservation over the state government’s alleged reluctance to transfer the case of Taying to the CBI.
“We fail to understand why the state government is so reluctant to handover the case to the CBI, whereas it has transferred the death case of late Toko Yame to the premier investigation agency,” AESDSU said in a representation to the chief minister.
Tayeng, former finance secretary of the AESDSU, and two of his friends were brutally attacked by unidentified youths in Itanagar on the night of June 10 last year. He succumbed to his injuries in Guwahati on June 19 in the same year.
The case was first investigated by Itanagar Police and was handed over to the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the state police on April 27 this year.
