The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Friday put the onus of the death of a student from Arunachal Pradesh on Delhi police.
"The way police picked him up and then again dropped him to the same spot needs to be looked into," AAP spokesperson Dilip Pandey said.
"The way lawlessness is prevailing in the state needs to be checked and Delhi police will have to take the responsibility to stop such incidents," he said.
Nido Taniam, a 20-year-old student from Arunachal Pradesh, who was allegedly assaulted by shopkeepers in south Delhi's Lajpat Nagar I area Wednesday, died of his injuries Thursday morning.
"AAP is hurt and saddened by this news, we aren't endorsing this incident," Pandey added.
