ES Reporter





The Adi Students Union (AdiSU) on Wednesday expressed dismay over the slow pace of investigation into the murder case of late Ojing Taying, who was murdered by unknown persons on June 10 last.

Addressing a press conference this afternoon at press club, General Secretary, AdiSU Pasighat Unit, Yon Taki said that even after passage of 40 days after the murder, police are still clueless about the assailants and has not made any headway into the case.

Taki informed that they had met IGP (inspector general of police) and SP (superintendent of police) and asked them to expedite the investigation to nab the culprit immediately.

‘However much to our dismay, the IGP and SP informed that the police did not find any concrete evidence relating to Taying Murder case till date and it will take at least 6-7 months time as they are looking at every angle,’ he said.

Taki expressed disappointment as the investigation had apparently slowed down after a certain period of time and demanded the police to expedite the case to give justice to aggrieved family members of Taying.

‘We cannot wait longer. We want immediate justice for Taying. And if police does not make any breakthrough within one month in the case we will resort to democratic movement,’ he further cautioned.

Meanwhile strongly condemning the molestation of a minor by a top government officials, General Secretary, (ADISU),Buteng Tayeng has accused investing officials of the women police for shoddy investigation into the case.

The union while lambasting officials of the women police station for not arresting the absconding, joint commissioner of Tax & Exercise, Tani Jongkey, who was convicted recently for molesting a minor girl stated that the ‘indifferent attitude of the police towards probing the case raises suspicion about the integrity of investigating team.’


Demanding exemplary punishment for the accused, Tayeng raised question over the integrity of the investing team for not arresting the absconding accused, despite full proof evidence against him.

‘We along with family members of the victim are unhappy with the way the police is investing the case. Why are they reluctant to arrest the officer?’ he questioning while insinuating that someone influential is protecting the accused.

Informing that the advocate of the accused has applied for a bail in Yupia court recently which wass rejected, Tayeng appealed to the authorities not to grant easy bail to the accused and sought strong punishment under POCSO Act. 

‘Inability to arrest the culprit so far despite having all evidences creates suspicion about the responsible investigation. We demand the Home Minister to intervene and immediately direct the police to arrest the absconding accused and ensure justice prevails in the case,’ Tayeng further added.

Furthermore expressing concern over the increasing crimes in the state capital, Tayeng also went on to add that if the Home Minister is incapable of tackling the law and order problem, he should resign on moral grounds.
