The mob showed up at the police station and demanded that the two suspects be handed over to them.

After the police personnel refused to do so, the mob turned violent and set fire on two police vehicles.

The situation had become so volatile that local MLA Samlung Mossang reached the spot and engaged in pacifying the crowd.

After much negotiation, the situation was finally brought under control following a written assurance by Additional Deputy Commissioner Sunny K Singh for a speedy trial and justice in the case apart from providing adequate compensation to the victim’s family.

Now as per the assurances given by the authorities, a charge sheet is to be filed in the case within a period of 60 days and the case would be transferred to SIT Itanagar with immediate effect.

The case is to be taken to fast track court for a speedy trial and the police will keep posting the progress to the victim’s family on a daily basis.

An enquiry will also be conducted in order to ascertain if there was any lapse on part of the police and if so action will be initiated.

The mob fury ignited following the recovery of the mortal remains of a 25-year-old girl from a tea garden.

Earlier the girl had gone missing since March 7. People claimed that the girl was raped and murdered by some suspected tea garden workers.
