New Delhi, Feb 12 IBNS | 8 months ago

The parents of Arunachal Pradesh student Nido Taniam, who succumbed to his injuries after being allegedly beaten up by some shopkeepers in South Delhi last month, met Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday.

"We met Sonia Gandhi today. She suggested us to meet the Home Minister (Sushilkumar Shinde) again and request him to form a committee for time-bound enquiry," Nido Taniam's father Nido Pavitra told reporters.

Nido Pavitra said they are likely to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh later in the evening.

The autopsy report into the death Nido Taniam in the national capital revealed that the Arunachali died as a result of the attack by shopkeepers at a market in South Delhi.

His autopsy report has confirmed that he died of injuries to his head and face, reports said.

The state police earlier informed the Delhi High court that there were two rounds of fight between the Arunachali, the shopkeepers and his friends.

In what appeared to be a violent attack on a member of the Northeast community, 18-year-old Nido Taniam, son of an MLA and who was a student from Arunachal Pradesh and was studying in Delhi, died on Jan 30 from alleged beatings by several shopkeepers in a market area of Lajpat Nagar in the national capital on Jan 29 evening.

Nido Taniam, had got engaged in an altercation on Jan 29 with some people in the market after he was teased for his hairstyle leading to a fight.

"Three associates of the shopkeepers are said to have beaten Nido and also passed derogatory, casteist and racist remarks," CNN-IBN reported.

These three alleged attackers arrested last week will now be charged with murder.
