NEW DELHI, Jan 2 (IANS): The government has accepted the recommendations of a committee that has suggested immediate measures to ensure the safety of people from India's Northeast in Delhi and other major cities.
"The government (has) accepted the recommendations of the Bezbaruah Committee with regard to immediate measures," Home Minister Rajnath Singh told the media on Friday.
"The government is committed (to the) safety and security of people from the Northeast region living in Delhi and other metropolitan cities," he added.
The committee headed by MP Bezbaruah, a member of the North Eastern Council, was set up in February 2014 after a 19-year-old student from Arunachal Pradesh, Nido Tania, died here after he was attacked.
The panel was formed to look into the concerns of the people of the Northeast living in other parts of the country and suggest suitable remedial measures.
