TNN, New Delhi : Students from northeast on Saturday protested outside Lajpat Nagar police station against the death of 19-year-old Arunachal Pradesh student Nido Tania. Scores of protesters held placards, raised slogans against discrimination and demanded justice. “It is a shocking incident and it is not the first time. It is not just about people from northeast, people from outside always face discrimination here,” said a protester. “We want Delhi chief minister (Arvind Kejriwal) to deliver justice to us,” said another protester. A group of people from the northeastern states also met Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Harsh Vardhan. “I hope Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh), home minister (Sushilkumar Shinde) and chief minister (Arvind Kejriwal) will rise to the occasion,” the BJP leader said. Nido Tania, son of an Arunachal Pradesh MLA, died after being severely assaulted by a mob in Lajpat Nagar on Wednesday. The attack was provoked by the student’s protest against a racial taunt and, by all accounts, those who witnessed the shameful incident didn’t care to intervene. Tania’s father, Nido Parimal, is an MLA from Raga constituency in Arunachal Pradesh. The police have registered a case of murder under section 302 of IPC and are probing the matter. A magisterial inquiry has been ordered. Joint commissioner of police Robin Hibu has been roped in to help in the probe. “We have detained three persons and are questioning them. Apart from a case of murder, we have also added sections of the law relating to prevention of atrocities against SCs and STs in the FIR,” Hibu told TOI.
