'2 autopsies fail to find cause of NE girl's death'

People from the northeastern community held a candlelight vigil at Jantar Mantar on Thursday demanding scrutiny of the forensics  sample of the 21-year-old Reingamphi Awungshi who recently died under mysterious circumstances.

“The police and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) have done two post-mortems so far and they are still unable to find the cause of her death. Police are not handing over to us the crime scene action report saying that it will be given soon,” said Yaronsho, president of Naga Student group.

“This is vague, they need to give us a date. We are demanding that the government expedites the process of chemical analysis from the samples collected,” added Yaronsho.
Yaronsho said protests to demand justice for the girl will continue till the time the truth is out.

The first post-mortem was carried out in All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on May 31 and the second one in Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC) on June 4.

Last Friday, the community members protested outside the Malviya Nagar police station as the police were not registering an FIR in connection with the case.

“Crime against people specially women belonging to the northeastern states are on the rise. So far no concrete mechanism has been put in place. There is discrimination, racial profiling which cannot continue,” said a protester.

“We live far away from home. Justice, fairness and protection for people hailing northeastern states, specially women, should be taken seriously in the capital as well as other cities,” the protester said.

Awungshi stayed in B block of Chirag Delhi. Her body was found on May 29 by her landlord.
