 ITANAGAR, Jul 12: The East Kameng District Students Union (EKDSU) on Thursday  threatened to go ahead with its phase wise economic blockade of Tawang district if police fails to re-arrest the suspected assailants of late Toko Yame and government suspends the police personnel  on duty that day.

 Welcoming the move of the government to hand over the case to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the EKDSU urged the impending CBI team to start the probe afresh without following the report made by Special Investigation Team which may  deviate their investigation process.

The union has been demanding to make public the progress made by SIT in the case, immediate suspension of Police personnel on PCR duty at the time of the incident, to furnish the post mortem report to the victim family for which they also served an ultimatum of 15 days last month.

In a press conference, EKDSU General Secretary, Nera Gumro said that they are still not fully satisfied as the government deliberately overlooked their other crucial demands and only will be satisfied when all the prime suspects in Yame's murder are put behind bars and government suspends all police personnel on duty that day.

In the meantime, he also expressed disappointment over not officially informing the victim’s family members that the case has been handed over to CBI.

Alleging shoddy investigation by police and SIT which delayed  justice, Gumro sought to know why the police haven’t initiated any action against the suspects despite fool-proof evidence.

Further threatening to go to any extent to deliver justice to Yame’s family, he clarified “we are not against any community nor do we want to spread hatred but our brother was killed by some people and they should not go scot free."

“The CBI must arrest the suspects as soon as possible. If not arrested timely, we will intensify our agitation and won’t stay as mute spectators,” Gumro further affirmed adding that people who commit such extremely brutal offenses are not worthy to be free in civilised society.

The organization also sought cooperation from all sections of society including student’s organizations.

Late Toko Yame, a student of JNV Tawang went missing after a quarrel broke out between students of JNV and Higher secondary School, Tawang on September 16 last year. Later his semi-decomposed body was recovered from near the JNV School after nine days of rigorous search operation.
