Yingkiong: One Tamik Taki, working as a tax and excise inspector in Itanagar, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in the Siang River near Jido village in the Upper Siang district on Thursday evening.
His body was reportedly tied to stone and iron rods.
Taki was missing from Itanagar since April 22 but was reportedly spotted in Yingkiong on April 26 and 27.
Suspecting it to be a planned murder by a criminal gang, the Nugong Banggo Kebang (NBK) has urged the home department and the Upper Siang police in particular to investigate the case in a fair manner and book the culprits involved.
“Taki was a native of Siang district’s Komsing village and a member of NBK. The ones involved in his gruesome murder should not be spared. Such criminal gangs are not acceptable in our law-abiding society and the authorities must deal with it with iron hands,” NBK president T K Kopak said.
The organisation quoted the Upper Siang SP as saying that the police started investigating after the family members of the deceased identified the body on Saturday.
The SP said an additional inspector has been deputed to assist the investigating officer and was confident that the case would be cracked soon.
The NBK also extended its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved members of Taki’s family.
