Nido case: HC pulls police by the ear, demands reason behind delay

Nido Taniam
New Delhi, Feb 5: The Delhi High Court has demanded answers from the police regarding the delay in getting the autopsy report in the Nido Taniam murder case. It has categorically asked the police why it is taking them more than 15 days to obtain the autopsy report, that too in a fast track case.

The High Court has also blamed the Delhi government for not setting up forensic labs in the case. The HC has further directed the police to file another report by Friday after the final post mortem report is out, indicating clearly that the court is not satisfied by the status report filed in the case.

In the mean time, Minority Affairs Minister Ninong Ering and Sushma Swaraj have moved notices in Parliament to discuss the case in details and raise the issue of increasing hate crimes in the country, especially against the North Eastern people residing in New Delhi.

Ering, in fact, issued notice for the suspension of the Question Hour in the Parliament for more time to discuss the issue.

Nido Taniam was beaten over by a group of 8 people when he resisted racial remarks by a sweet shop owner. The initial post mortem reports showed that Taniam died of swelling in brain and collection of fluid in lungs.

However, his toxicology report is awaited. The Home Ministry has formed a 5-member committee to look into the concerns of the Northeastern students in Delhi and has given its approval for a magisterial probe.
