EAC passes away, death mourned

ITANAGAR, Mar 27: Jumte Jini, who was serving as the extra assistant commissioner (EAC) of Kaying in Siang district, passed away on 25 March in Dibrugarh in Assam.
A native of Biru village in West Siang district, Jini had joined service in 1984 as a peon in the education department. He was later selected as an LDC, and then promoted to the post of an assistant.
He was eventually appointed as a circle officer through lateral entry in 1997, and had been posted at Namsai, Payum/Tato, Bameng, Sagalee, Yingkiong, Pangin, Kaying, etc.
He is survived by his wife, two daughters and two sons.
Meanwhile, the Nyiko Pangii Society, Itanagar (NPSI) has deeply mourned Jini’s untimely demise.
“For the people of Nyiko-Bango (three villages -Logum Jini, Biru and Eyi) his untimely demise is an irreparable loss. His narrative as a self-made man who worked his way up from a humble beginning to the level of a senior administrative officer through perseverance and hard work has been huge source of inspiration for the youths,” said NPSI general secretary Marli Ingo.
Describing Jini as “a straightforward and down-to-earth man who was loved by both his colleagues and juniors,” the Ingo termed his death a great loss to the society and the state.
Government officers and staffs of Siang district have also mourned the demise of Jini and prayed for eternal peace of the departed soul.
