The Arunachal Pradesh government on Friday decided to hand over the journalist shoot-out case to the CBI.


Under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, the cabinet decided to hand over the case to the premier investigation agency of the country, official sources informed.

Arunachal Times associate editor Tongam Rina was critically injured when unknown miscreants shot at her from point blank range on July 15 when she was entering her office.

Rina is presently undergoing treatment in Delhi after being shifted from Rama Krishna Mission Hospital here early this month.

Even after 46 days passed of the shooting incident, the police are still clueless on information of the miscreants involved.

The state media fraternity under the aegis of Arunachal Press Club (APC) and Arunachal Pradesh Union of Working Journalist (APWUJ) has been demanding the state government to handover the case to a competent investigating agency.

They have also launched a series of agitations demanding immediate arrest of the culprits involved.
