The prime accused in the Nani Tama murder case has been arrested near an airfield in Itanagar, the police said on Wednesday.
Kaling Lego was arrested from the airfield area on Tuesday, officer-in-charge of Pasighat police station ABS Ahmed said on Wednesday.
The arrest came more than six months after the killing of 19-year-old Nani Tama, whose body was found buried under the sand on the bank of river Siang at Raneghat on November 30.
According to the police, a casual argument had led to the killing of college student Tama, a native of Ziro town in Lower Subansiri district. He had gone to his elder brother's place of work at Pasighat on a short vacation.
Lego is a BA second year student and a native of Siluk in Mebo subdivision, Ahmed said.
