AAPSU demands CBI inquiry into chopper crash

By Correspondent

ITANAGAR, May 11 � The apex students� organisation of Arunachal Pradesh, AAPSU, has demanded CBI inquiry into the April 30 helicopter crash that killed former Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu and four other persons.

The All Arunachal Pradesh Students� Union (AAPSU), which has been playing the role of watchdog in absence of a distinct Opposition in the State Assembly, urged the State Government to conduct a probe into the chopper crash by the premier investigating agency for a free-and-fair inquiry.

AAPSU, which had organised a candle-lit march at Akashdeep here in honour of late Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu, who was laid to rest in his home town, Tawang on Tuesday itself, sought to know several queries pertaining to the air crash of the ill-fated Pawan Hans chopper in Luguthang area in Tawang district on April 30 last.

During the prayer meet, the AAPSU put a banner alongside the portrait of late Khandu that read: �Let CBI probe and make us know - 1) Who made the anonymous phone call..? 2) What happened to the black box..? 3) Why the emergency locating transmitter in the ill-fated helicopter did not work? 4) Detailed report of Air Traffic Control before taking off..! 5) Post-mortem report...viz. reason of the late CM�s death and timing of death! 6) Failure of ISRO and Sukhoi in locating the crash site...�

A large number of general public from all walks of life paid their last tributes to the departed leader by lighting candles before the portrait of late Khandu.

The mourners also held placards expressing adore for their most beloved leader. The placards read: �Good bye dear DK (Dorjee Khandu)�, �we will miss you�, �thanks for the wonderful memories�, �if possible please come back�.

In the meantime, the bereaved family members of the former CM extended their profound sense of gratitude to all sections of people, including ministers, MLAs, Government officials, military and paramilitary forces for rendering all possible help to them at the hour of crisis. They also extended thanks to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and other Central leaders for their solidarity and cooperation to help them in coping with the trauma in the aftermath of the tragic chopper crash.

Khandu�s eldest son Pema, while acknowledging the invaluable support and solidarity of all, said, �We cannot and will never forget their selfless and dedicated support extended to us.� Pema was talking to reporters soon after the completion of his father�s last rites at Shepedung area near their Leberdung residence in Tawang on Tuesday.
