Protesters express solidarity with Arunachal youth

Protesters express solidarity with Arunachal youth

 Around 200 to 300 people both Northeast and others expressed their solidarity with Higio Gungtey, a 20-year-old from Arunachal Pradesh who was thrashed by his landlord Hemanth Kumar for excessive use of water at his house, by holding a protest in front of Town Hall here on Thursday evening.

The protest started at around 5 pm and went on until 7pm.

A group of agitators reconstructed the events showing the brutal assault by house owner Hemanth Kumar on Gungtey.  

Meanwhile, Hemanth Kumar, a lawyer by profession, has written to the Advocates Association, Bengaluru, stating that his tenant Gungtey has lodged a false and baseless complaint with the jurisdictional police.

Nationality unclear
Hemanth Kumar also contested that the police should confirm the nationality of Higio Gungtey. He said that Higio's Facebook profile showed that he is originally from Burma and did his schooling in China.

If he is a citizen of a different country, then he cannot register an atrocity complaint, Kumar added.
