Late Nguso’s family acknowledge public support while Police criticism continues
ITANAGAR, July 18: The family members of Late Jumchi (Tachi) Nguso, the APST bus conductor who died under mysterious circumstances on July 15 has thanked the people, the students’ organizations led by AAPSU, all NGOs and well wishers for “their support and sacrifice in fighting against the atrocities which had been inflicted upon us”.
In an email to this daily, the family members stated “even at this time of grief, the family feel elated on seeing the love, affection and untiring support by all. Wish we stand united like this for all such genuine cases”.
Late Nguso has died early morning on July 15 after he was allegedly denied medical attention on time after being hit by a vehicle belonging to the CM Security Cell.
Instead of a Hospital, he was taken to the Naharlagun Police Station where he was allegedly tortured. His death had sparked widespread protest by students and citizens against Police brutality.
Meanwhile, Organizations continue to question Police handling of Late Nguso’s case.
Arunachal Tribal Students’ Union strongly condemning the incident, demanded resignation of Chief Minister and Home Minister on moral ground.
The union said that various organizations and civil societies have demanded termination of OC, Naharlagun Police Station LR Rana, SDPO BS Mehra, investigating Officer Suresh Singh and SI K Pait. But instead of terminating the officers, the state government is practicing nepotism and trying to save those police personnel involved, it said.
The suspension and withdrawal of the officers from their respective police station is just a face saving step and not justice, it said.
If the state government doesn’t act as per the demands of the various students’ organization and NGOs, the Chief Minister and the Home Minister should resign on moral ground, the Union added.
Kargu Kardi Welfare Society expressed shock over the way the case was handled and the inhumane behavior of the police personnel.
The society further said that the murky episode has painted volumes of filth on the state police fraternity and has unmasked the hidden devilish face of the men in uniform.
The society demanded that all the officers and the constables involved be terminated from their service as their continuation will jeopardize the police-public relation.
