NAHARLAGUN, Hundreds of people from various walks of life on Friday afternoon participated in the candlelight rally to mark the 1st death anniversary of Techi Meena Lishi, who was allegedly murdered by killers hired by her husband Lishi Roni in between Nirjuli-Banderdewa.
The rally was led by the United Leil Tara Youth Foundation (ULTYF).
Meena was seven months pregnant when she was killed on 5 November last year.
The rally began from the Model Village ground and culminated at former MLA and Roni’s father Lishi Legi’s residence at A Sector in Naharlagun. The participants lit candles and paid floral tributes at Meena’s grave.
Speaking to media persons, ULTYF president Tana Sushil Tara said ‘justice is still awaited’. He also said co-accused Chumi Taya filed for an interlocutory application on 3 November after her bail application was rejected many times earlier.
“As the case has been registered, we believe that justice will be served at its earliest”, Tara said.
