Just days after the Arunachal Pradesh government handed over the death case of Toko Yame to the Central Bureau of Investigation, the state government has handed yet another case to the CBI that of Ojing Taying murder case.

Ojing Taying was assaulted by unknown assailants in Itanagar on June 14 last year and succumbed to his injuries five days later on June 19. As the investigations were making no headway, the case was transferred to the State Crime Branch on April 4 this year.

However, the state government took cognizance that despite the case being registered more than a year ago, no substantive progress was visible and there were still no clue about the miscreants.

After the matter was examined by the competent authority based on recommendation made by the state Director General of Police, it was decided that the state Home Department would transfer the case to the CBI for speedy delivery of justice to the victim and his bereaved family members.
