Nido's parents want anti-racism law, his statue in Delhi

The parents of Nido Tania, the Arunachal Pradesh student allegedly beaten to death in New Delhi, have said they will continue their fight against discrimination against the Northeast community in other parts of the country.

"Our son would never come back again from his heavenly abode but his sacrifice should never go in vain," Parliamentary Secretary (Health & Family Welfare) Nido Pavitra and his wife Marina Nido told reporters here yesterday.

"We'll be going to Delhi along with a team of lawmakers led by Chief Minister Nabam Tuki soon to press for enactment of an anti-racial law, installing his statue in the national capital as a symbol of anti-racism and initiating all possible measures to prevent recurrence of such incident in any part of the country," they said.

Nido Tania, first year student of a college, died after being allegedly beaten by shopkeepers in Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar market on January 29 last.
