Nido's postmortem indicates murder?
New Delhi, Feb 10: The postmortem reports of the Arunachal Pradesh student Nido Taniam who died recently were released on Monday.

According to the reports, he died due to injuries to his head and face. With this report, there is a possibility that the three arrested for his death can be tried for murder.

On January 29, Nido and his friends had an altercation with some shopkeepers in Lajpat Nagar Market, following which he was attacked by the locals.

The report mentions the sequence of events on January 29. Nido and his friends, Rikam and Thaki, it says, had gone to meet their friend, Larken, at Lajpat Nagar. When they asked the shopkeeper for directions, he poked fun at Nido's hairstyle which annoyed him and he smashed a glass pane of the shop.

The agitated shopkeeper and his three associates immediately pounced on Nido, beat him up and made derogatory remarks about his caste, race and looks, the report says.

Once neighbours intervened, the fight stopped but the shopkeepers insisted on compensation and Nido gave them Rs 7,000.

After the matter was sorted out, Nido reached Larken's house nearby. "This is when a crowd again confronted them and two people from that group slapped Nido and made objectionable remarks on his caste and appearance," the source said quoting the report.

A police team apparently reached the spot after this.

Nido died in a hospital the next day.
