Itanagar: The Arunachal Indigenous Tribes' Forum (AITF) on Wednesday demanded immediate constitution of a special investigation team to probe the recent spurt of violence at Namsai in Lohit district.

In a memorandum to Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu, the forum called for taking steps to uphold the peaceful coexistence between Arunachalese and non-indigenous population in Namsai sub-division.

It also demanded compensation and relief to the affected families besides constitution of an independent fact finding committee to look into the administrative breakdown at Namsai and recommended a long-term solution.

The forum also urged the chief minister for initiating immediate steps to ensure free and uninterrupted movement on all roads leading to Changlang and Lohit districts.

"Till a solution is worked out, the state government should issue immediate notification to suspend all the PRCs already issued to non-Arunachalese in both the districts," AITF said.
