Rijiju who came to Guwahati on Friday to attend a PHDCCI-sponsored conclave promised that the perpetrators would not be spared. “We are committed to prompt action against the culprits and my office will never let even a single perpetrators to go scot free,” said Rijiju who hails from Arunachal Pradesh.

On the other hand, student organizations and the various bodies have vehemently condemned the repeated incidents of racial attacks on the people from the north east. Three such incidents have sent no less shockwave across the north eastern region where the people demand exemplary punishments for the perpetrators.

Mizo girl Juliet Zonunmawl was found dead insider her room at the Munrika Apartment in Vasant Bihar area in the capital on Friday wee hours. Police have held her live in partner.

Twenty four hours before it, two Naga youths were mercilessly beaten by goons in Gurgaon with hockey sticks and cricket bats bereft of any reason and asked them to quit the place.
