Probe ordered into Assam girl’s death in Arunachal Pradesh
GUWAHATI: A probe has been ordered by National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) to investigate the mysterious death of a minor girl from Assam in the house of an Arunachal Pradesh MLA, Techi Kaso.
NCPCR has also directed to conduct an autopsy of the body and a detailed probe into the destruction of evidences and poor handling of the case.
The minor girl was 12 year old and hailed from Dolahat Tea Estate of Nowboicha in Lakhimpur district, Assam. Her family was settled in the neighbouring state of Arunachal Pradesh for the last 30 years and her father worked as a watchman at Techi Kaso’s house.
As per reports, no FIR was filed against the MLA and the girl’s body was sent off to her native village without any autopsy.
NCPCR member Rosy Taba was quoted by Assam Tribune as saying, “Till the time our team reached the spot, no FIR was filed into the matter. The body was sent to the native village of the girl without any autopsy or without following proper norms.
“No proper photographic evidence was collected by the police and the dupatta, with which she reportedly hanged herself, also could not be found. Several other attempts to destroy the evidences were noticed by our team.”
