ITANAGAR, June 2 - Itanagar police have arrested three persons, including the main accused, in connection with last Friday�s incident in which miscreants set a car on fire in front of the residence of State BJP president and newly-elected Lok Sabha MP from Arunachal East seat, Tapir Gao, at Niti Vihar here.

As per the CCTV footage, two cars came and stopped near Gao�s residence on Friday morning. One person who came in a white coloured Maruti Wagon-R car got down, killed a puppy using a machete and threw it in front of the gate of Gao�s house before setting the car ablaze.

On the basis of an FIR lodged by Gao�s family, the police registered a case and subsequently swung into action to nab the culprits.

City SP Tumme Amo informed, with the help of Call Detail Records (CDR) analysis, CCTV footage, etc., the police team under the supervision of SP zeroed down on the three accused. One person identified as Deo Tayem, 24, was arrested from A-Sector, Naharlagun on Saturday. Another accused, Gayam Pao, 25, was nabbed from Pappu Nallah last night.

The main accused, Tongam Jomoh, 42, was absconding. The police eventually arrested the main accused on Sunday morning from Kasikata Bagan village under Bihpuria police station in Assam�s Lakhimpur district, the SP informed.

Jomoh, who was brought back to Itanagar, reportedly confessed to the crime. During interrogation, the accused, who is stated to be the president of All Arunachal Abo-Tani Association (AAATA), disclosed that he did it because he was angry with BJP chief Tapir Gao for allegedly issuing party tickets to two non-APSTs.

A Mahindra car used in the crime was also seized along with the driver as witness, the SP added. The main accused sustained burn injuries in his hands during the commission of the crime, the SP informed, adding that all three arrested persons are now in police custody.
