Adi body laments slow probe into Itanagar tax officer’s murder

The KDOWS has called upon the concerned authorities to complete the investigation into the case within a span of 15 days.

The Kuri Dajum Olung Welfare Society (KDOWS), a conglomeration of several clans of the Adi tribe wherein Taki clan is also a part, has called for completion of the investigation into the murder case of Tamik Taki, inspector, tax & excise.

The KDOWS has called upon the concerned authorities to complete the investigation into the case within a span of 15 days.

The umbrella organization has stated that they would resort to democratic agitation if their demand is not fulfilled.

Noteworthy here is that 6 days of the ultimatum time period have already gone by. The KDOWS had submitted a representation to the SP Upper Siang district on July 27 and had called upon the police to complete the investigation within the given time period.

Talking to Northeast Live, Dr Kabang Lego, president of KDOWS said that they would resort to agitation if the investigation is not completed within the given time period.

Tamik Taki, the inspector of the tax & excise department had gone missing from Itanagar on April 22 this year. His dead body was found in the Siang river near Jido village in Tuting circle of the Upper Siang district.

Several local groups including the Adi Bani Kebang have termed it a cold-blooded murder and sought justice for the victim.

The case also saw massive protests across Arunachal Pradesh with a large number of people seeking justice for the murdered Tamik Taki.
