Meanwhile, AAPSU general secretary Tobom Dai, welcoming the GoAP decision, in a statement said that the investigation should be fast tracked and time bound without any political interference.
He also demanded that the GoAP must handover late Ojing Taying case to CBI as demanded by AESDSU as the case has been languishing for a year without any breakthrough. Itanagar police and SIT should accept their total failure in handling the case, he added.
