Arunchal announces Rs 2 lakh for info on gunman



Itanagar: With the gunman who shot and wounded a lady journalist here last Sunday still remaining elusive, the Arunachal Pradesh government today announced a reward of Rs 2 lakh for information about him.

"Anyone who can provide us a lead to identify the culprit will be rewarded with Rs 2 lakh in cash. Their identity will not be revealed," Capital Complex Superintendent of Police Hibu Tamang said.

Those providing information about the gunman, who shot Associate Editor of Arunachal Times Tongam Rina while she was entering office, could do so via mobile phone, Tamang said.

A sketch of the suspect drawn after questioning eye witnesses was to be released.

Rama Krishna Mission Hospital sources today said that Rina's condition was gradually improving.
