An Arunachal Pradesh Congress leader was shot dead by the son of the state assembly’s deputy speaker Tumke Bagra at Aalo in West Siang district, police said on Monday.
Kenjum Kamsi, a secretary-rank leader of the Arunachal PCC, was shot dead by Kajum Bagra, the son of the deputy speaker, in front of a hotel at Aalo around 10pm on Sunday, said West Siang superintendent of police Mari Riba.
The incident was reportedly a fallout of a scuffle between the two, he said, adding that the matter was being probed.
The accused was arrested, the firearm seized and a case registered, Riba said.
The APCC condemned the incident and said Kajum using his father’s official vehicle and committing such “heinous crime” proved the saying “like father like son”.
“The tragic incident also reflects the true colour of the BJP to which the deputy speaker belongs. It raises a serious question,” the party said.
Condoling the death, it also demanded exemplary punishment for the accused and resignation of the deputy speaker.
