Itanagar: Security forces on Friday night staged a
flag march on the streets of Arunachal Pradesh capital complex
which witnessed clashes and arson since Tuesday, police
sources said.
Around 14 companies of security personnel have been
deployed and they have started holding flag marches from
tonight, Superintendent of Police of Capital Complex Apang
Tamut said.

Beside deployment of 14 companies of security personnel,
police flying squads have been formed and deployed at
vulnerable points to tackle any trouble while magistrates and
police would conduct joint patrolling, the SP said.

The capital complex has witnessed clashes since Tuesday`s
violent clashes, arson and police firing at Indira Gandhi Park
that claimed the life of 23-year-old Heri Tai.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Jarbom Gamlin today ordered a
one-man committee to probe Tuesday`s firing incident and
announced an ex-gratia of Rs 5 lakh to the next of the kin of
the deceased.
"The state is going through challenging times and it is
the responsibility of every citizen cutting across community
boundaries to stand together and prove to the world that
Arunachal continues to be an island of peace," Gamlin said in
his appeal.

"My government is committed to ensuring the safety of the
people. Every citizen must rise above all differences, think
and act as one people today," he added.
