AAPSU demands CBI probe into Tawang incident

By Correspondent

ITANAGAR, May 4 - All Arunachal Pradesh Students� Union (AAPSU) has demanded a CBI probe into last Monday�s shooting incident at Tawang, in which two persons lost their lives and several others sustained serious bullet injuries.

AAPSU president Kamta Lapung while addressing a press conference here yesterday said, ordering of a mere judicial inquiry by the State Government into the �killing of two innocent persons was not sufficient� foretelling that it �could not deliver justice to the victims� families� and that the Union demanded for an �impartial investigation by the CBI�.

Questioning the role of Tawang DC, SP and magistrate on duty to give such an �extreme order� without the knowledge and instructions of State Government, he said the government should take the responsibility for Monday�s mayhem and immediately recommend for a CBI probe to unearth the truth behind the whole episode.

The AAPSU further demanded the government to immediately suspend Tawang DC, Magistrate on duty, SP and Officer-in-Charge of Tawang police station �for a free and impartial inquiry�.

The Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC), while condemning the �unfortunate� incident, also sought for an enquiry either by a retired Judge of High Court or the CBI.

Sensing a �foul play� in the entire episode, the APCC said the party wanted the concerned authorities to reveal the truth so that guilty are booked and punished as per the rule of law.
