Nido Taniam
New Delhi, Feb 2: Protesting against 20-year-old Nido Taniam's death, activists planned to hold a candle light vigil at Jantar Mantar on Sunday, Feb 2. Taniam, a student from Arunachal Pradesh, was allegedly killed after being beaten at Lajpat Nagar market in Delhi.

Earlier on Saturday, nearly 2000 activists and student union members gathered at the market to demand justice for Nido. The protesters called off their protest after the Delhi Police assured swift action in the case.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal too met students from North-East India and ensured proper actions against those who allegedly were involved in the case.

Posting a photo of his meeting with the students, Kejriwal wrote on Facebook, "Met with North East Students Delegation regarding the tragic death of Nido Taniam and assured them of all support from Delhi government in the fight for justice."

"There is no place for elements trying to spread hatred against people and our government will adopt a zero tolerance policy towards such unacceptable behavior since people residing here from all parts of the country and those belonging to other countries are pride of Delhi," added the CM.

Meanwhile, Taniam's body reached Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh. His postmortem report is yet to be submitted to Delhi Police.
