 SHILLONG: The UDP has demanded a through probe into the mysterious death of the two students from the Northeastern region — Dana Silva M Sangma of Meghalaya and Richard Loitam of Manipur.

The party also demanded immediate arrest of those responsible for the death of the two students.

“So far there has been no proper investigation into the twin incidents. We demand a proper investigation to find out the culprits,” UDP working president Bindo M Lanong said in a statement here on Wednesday.

Some vested interests are trying to alienate the students of the region from the rest of the country, he said.

Our Special correspondent adds from New Delhi: Meanwhile, the issue of suicide by Dana was again raised in the Parliament on Wednesday even while a Manipuri girl was molested at her room in Gurgaon.

Ramen Deka of BJP raised the issue in Lok Sabha during Zero Hour. “Boys and girls from North-East are increasingly come under mental and physical attack in Delhi and its neighbourhood, he said.

The BJP MP demanded a statement from the Home Minister on the measures taken by the government to protect the interest of the people, especially women, from the region in the wake of several incidents of rape and molestation in the national capital.

Khagen Das (CPI-M) said alleged suicide by Dana Sangma and the alleged murder of Richard Loitam in Bangalore are examples of cultural gap between the North-East and the rest of country.
