Will leave no stone unturned to nab Nyori’s murderer(s): DC

PASIGHAT, Feb 8: East Siang Deputy Commissioner Tamiyo Tatak has said the administration would leave no stone unturned to nab those involved in the murder of Mebo Rural Bank cashier Bomge Nyori.
Nyori was found dead in a pool of blood inside the bank, in Mebo, on Wednesday. The bank’s locker keys were missing, and the assailant(s) had made away with the CCTV cameras installed in the bank. Nyori is survived by his wife and two children.
Interacting with members of the All East Siang District Students’ Union (AESDSU) and the Karko Ao Welfare Association (KAWA) here on Thursday, the DC said investigation has been initiated to nab those involved in the cold-blooded murder.
“Yesterday night, when I came to know that Nyori was brutally killed, I along with SP Prashant Gautam and ADC Taddo Borang rushed to the spot,” the DC said.
Postmortem was conducted and now police are hunting for the culprit(s) and investigating the motive behind the murder, Tatak said.
The DC expressed dismay at the dilapidated condition of the bank, which is also without security personnel. “The bank authorities should take appropriate steps to modernize and secure their branches in the district,” he said.
Members of the AESDSU and the KAWA, led by their presidents Oyin Yosung and Jummo Geyi, respectively, condemned the heinous murder and demanded immediate arrest of the culprit(s). They requested the DC to release ex gratia to the victim’s family, and to appoint his widow in a government position on compassionate grounds.
Meanwhile, SP Prashant Gautam, who is personally monitoring the investigation, informed that investigation officer B Pait is making all-out efforts to crack the murder case.
“If necessary, the case may be handed over to a senior officer, like the Pasighat PS OC,” he said.
He said the incident should not be given a communal colour.
“Our only aim now is punishment under the law for whoever was responsible for the murder,” he said.
Expressing confidence that the police would identify and arrest the culprit(s) within a short period, he appealed to the people to help the police in tracing out the criminal(s).
Arrest, punishment demanded
The Students’ United Movement of All Arunachal-East Siang District (SUMAA-ESD) has strongly condemned the brutal murder and sought early arrest of the culprit(s) involved in the crime. It has also demanded stringent punishment for the culprit(s).
The union informed in a release on Thursday that a team led by its president Zinge Moyong rushed to Mebo circle and met the officer in charge of the police station there to enquire about the case.
It said the union’s members held a public meeting there, during which Moyong appealed to the locals to maintain peace and support the police for early arrest of the culprit(s).
The team met the East Siang deputy commissioner and submitted a representation. They also met MLA Kaling Moyong and MP (East) Ninong Ering, and appealed to them to take urgent steps to curb the growing law and order problems in the district.
The Lower Siang Elite Forum (LSEF) has also condemned the murder and appealed to the state government to appoint a high-level inquiry team to nab the culprit(s) at the earliest.
The LSEF extended condolences to the bereaved family and prayed for the eternal peace of the departed soul.
Meanwhile, the All Lower Siang District Students’ Union (ALSDSU) in a memorandum addressed to the home minister on Thursday questioned the lack of security arrangement at the Rural Bank in Mebo.
It sought to know how a reputed bank like the Rural Bank was functioning without any security arrangement, and blamed administrative lapse for the cashier’s death.
Demanding stringent punishment for the culprit(s), the union, along with the West Siang District Students’ Union, the Basar Area Students’ Union, the Kargu Kardi Students’ Union, and the Jigo Yego Students’ Union jointly appealed to the department concerned and the state government to immediately provide relief to the deceased’s family, since he died on duty, safeguarding public money.
