Heeding to the demand of Nido Taniam's parents, Arunachali student who died in an alleged racial assault, Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Tuesday agreed to hand over investigations of the case to the CBI.

Led by parents – Nido Pavitra and Marina Nido – 24 members of Taniam's family, who earlier also met Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, gave a 9-point memorandum to Shinde that included demands of stringent action against the police personnel for failing to conduct medical examination after the first assault on Taniam, and capital punishment to all the perpetrators of the heinous crime.

"We do not have any faith in the Delhi Police and have therefore, demanded the case to be handed over to the CBI to which Shinde has agreed. We have also asked the home minister to instruct ministry of human resource development to include information about the culture, geography, and ethos of the North-Eastern states in the syllabus of CBSE and all state boards to increase awareness among people," said Nido Pavitra, father of deceased Taniam, who is a Congress MLA from Arunachal Pradesh.
