GWS demand action from Govt.
ITANAGAR, July 20: Galo Welfare Society in a representation to the Chief Secretary on “unnatural Custodial Death” of Late Jumchi (Tachi) Nguso appealed for booking of Police Officers and Personnel involved under Section IPC 302.
Late Nguso, a bus conductor by profession was on his way on foot from Pappu Nallah to catch a bus from Naharlagun Bus Station to go to his place of duty at Daporijo on July 15 when he was hit by a vehicle belonging to the security cell of the Chief Minister. The vehicle coming going towards Itanagar allegedly hit Nguso. The Officer K Pait informed the Police regarding the accident. However Police team led by SI Suresh Singh of Naharlagun Police station instead of taking him to hospital brought him to Police station where Late Nguso was allegedly tortured.
The GWS termed Nguso’s death a clear case of murder and violation of Human Rights committed in group by the Police personnel in uniform. The Society’ while condemning the barbaric and brutal act of the Police appealed to the Govt. to institute inquiries at different levels to find out all the persons involved in the act and punish them as per the Law.
Suresh Singh, SI and his team of boys should be immediately booked under IPC 302, arrested and kept behind the bars till the inquiry is complete, it said.
It is also appealed to the Govt. that the wife and children of the deceased should also be suitably compensated by the Govt.
‘Galo Welfare Society’ has also constituted an ‘Independent Fact Finding Committee’ (IFFC) on its own to find out the actual facts and persons involved in the incident with Bamang Tago, Chairperson (ACR) as the Chairman of the Committee, advocates Dicky Panging and Sunil Mow and president Arunachal Pradesh Women’s Welfare Society Dharmawoti Mongmow, President as member and Domo Padu member Secy.
