But hey! Wait. Has the ordeal of family members of Getam Apang really ended?
Not so, if we go by the reports appearing in the media. Gegong Apang has been accused of staging the kidnap drama by family members to gain political mileage by Dorjee Khandu.
"It is unfortunate that Getem and his music teacher were abducted from the heart of the state capital, but what can the government do if family members are involved in such crimes?" Khandu, who had dislodged Apang in April last year after revolting against him, told a press conference here.
He said "It is unfortunate that political mileage was sought to be derived by attempting to show my government in poor light." (link)
However, the former CM Gegong Apang has denied the charge that the kidnapping was handiwork of the insider and has demanded CBI probe into the abduction.
Former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Gegong Apang, whose youngest son returned home from captivity, today demanded a CBI probe into the kidnapping and denied the charge that it was the handiwork of an insider.
Addressing a press conference soon after the one convened by the Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu, Apang said, "How can a relative kidnap my son at gun point".
A maternal uncle of Getem Apang and two others were arrested in connection with his kidnap and the Chief Minister had said his government could not be blamed if family members were involved. (Full story here)
Well, only proper investigation into the kidnapping case would tell if the entire abduction case was or was not a drama orchestrated to gain political mileage and to put the ruling government in a poor light. But the government has to agree for sure that the law and order in the twin capital Township of Naharlagun and Itanagar is deteriorating and needs immediate attention.
