that it is not against the police institution but the 24 hours state wide bandh call
is proposed to shed light on the gross injustice meted out to Jumchi (Tachi) Nguso
by the erring police personnel which ultimately resulted into his pre-mature death.
All the key institution will remain close baring few emergency and essential services
namely, medical, electricity, fire-service, water supply, postal and telecom services,
media and administration etc, which will be exempted from the purview of the bandh,
the union said.

GWS alleges lethargy and inaction
ITANAGAR, July 26: The Galo Welfare Society (GWS) condemned the alleged lethargy
and inaction of the investigating agencies in the unnatural death case of Late Tachi
Nguso who died under mysterious circumstances after a vehicle accident on the morning
of June 15.
The society has pointed out ‘lacunae in the action of the concerned authorities’
after the incident. The Police have registered the case under Section 304 (A) and
279 of the IPC which are bailable offence. But no case has been registered for custodial
death, murder, assault and torture of the victim by the police, the Society claimed
while adding that Police have failed to make arrest of any of the culprits involved
in the case except the driver of the Police vehicle involved in the case who had
reportedly surrendered before the police.
The Society further claimed that the case has been handed over to the Special Investigation
Team but so far they have not carried out any investigation. A senior officer in
the rank of DSP or ASP should have been appointed as the SIT Inquiry officer, it
The Society said that the government has failed to officially announce any ex-gratia
compensation to the victim’s family or to provide any other relief till date. In
such case it is the foremost duty to of the government to provide interim relief
to the family of the victim.
The magisterial inquiry was also objected by the society on the ground that the subject
of the inquiry was motor accident case whereas it should be custodial death, murder,
assault, torture and violation of human rights by the police but till date it has
not been amended. Moreover, the inquiry is being conducted at a slow pace, it added.
The Lendo Ao Welfare Association has also alleged delay tactics of arresting the
police personnel involved in it. The Association said mere transfer to the PHQ is
not a punishment and demanded punishment to the police personnel allegedly involved
in the incident leading to death of Late Nguso immediately. It said the amount sanctioned
should not be on compensatory ground, a hefty amount in lakhs to be sanctioned for
better education to the children of late Nguso. The Association hoped that the
enquiry committed report will be fair.
