Itanagar: The Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Women (APSCW) expressed shock and dismay over the death of Techi Meena Lishi at Karsingsa on November 5.
Meena (36) was found dead inside an SUV, near the Karsingsa block point, around 25km from the capital city. She was 7-months pregnant. Her family has accused her husband, Roni Lishi to be the brains behind this perpetuated accident.
The Commission in a statement on Thursday said “it has received a complaint from the father of the deceased stating that his daughter’s death was not due to accident but matter of criminal conspiracy.”
“The APSCW has sought a status report from the Capital Complex superintendent of police on the case and asked him to conduct a speedy and fair investigation so that justice may be delivered to the victim and her family,” commission’s member secretary Mabi Taipodia Jini said.
The women commission has further requested the citizens to cooperate with the police in its investigation.
The Arunachal Pradesh Women’s Welfare Society (APWWS) has also appealed for free and fair investigation into Meena and her unborn child’s death.
“The APWWS has full faith that the police will thoroughly investigate the case and justice will be delivered to the departed souls and family members,” the society said.
Meanwhile, Capital superintendent of police Jimmy Chiram said, “Two people have been arrested in connection with the case.”
“During investigation, we found out that there has been a conspiracy and there is high likelihood of foul-play and it may not be a simple case of accident,” the SP added.
“The duo has been booked under certain sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) including Section 302,” SP Chiram said while adding that the police are still investigating the case.
