    An 18-year-old college student died on Thursday after being allegedly beaten up mercilessly at a marketplace in the Lajpat Nagar area of Delhi, triggering widespread protests in the Capital.

    Nido Taniam, the son of Arunachal Pradesh Congress legislator Nido Pavitra, was attacked around 2pm on Wednesday after an altercation broke out between him and a shopkeeper over his hair colour.

    The police are yet to arrest anyone in connection with the case. The incident has once again raised concerns over the security of students from the north-east in the Capital.

    Micro-blogging site Twitter was abuzz on Friday, with some users suggesting racism played a part in Taniam's death. The mysterious death of 21-year-old Manipur resident Reingamphi Awungshi at Chirag Dilli in May 2013 also featured in the discussions.

    Taniam had gone to Lajpat Nagar to visit a friend on Wednesday, Arunachal Pradesh resident commissioner Avinash Mishra said while talking to a TV channel.

    Unable to find the address, he entered a shop and sought the shopkeeper's help, Mishra added.

    According to JT Tagan, president of the Arunachal Students' Union in the Capital, the shopkeeper and some people present at the shop teased Taniam over the colour of his hair.

    Irked, Taniam broke a glass item in the shop, for which he later paid Rs. 7,000, Mishra said.

    An altercation broke out and the youth was allegedly beaten up with sticks and iron rods by a group of around seven men. He succumbed to his injuries on Thursday, Tagan said.

    Taniam's cousin alleged he saw an injury mark on his neck and his lips were torn. "Taniam's body has been taken to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences. The family has been informed. As they won't be able to come here, we will take the body back home."

    Some reports claimed the police had intervened into the matter and detained Taniam, but later dropped him on the same spot.

    Reacting to the incident, Aam Aadmi Party leader Dilip Pandey said the Delhi Police should take prompt action and book the accused at the earliest.

    Police said they are questioning the shopkeepers in the Lajpat Nagar-I area of south Delhi, where the incident took place.

    According to TV reports, students from the north-east are likely to stage a protest in Delhi on Saturday.

    Binalakshmi Nepram, founder of non-governmental organisation Manipur Women Gun Survivors Network, accused the police of refusing to register an FIR in the case.

    Police has to quickly arrest the culprits and also investigate lapses to prevent a political fallout.

    RIP nido.

    unfortunately for most people india finishes at kolkatta. that is because the knowledge about seven sisters states is pretty low and there is not many lok sabha seats from there. hence politicians and us common people tend to ignore them.

    i have travelled and stayed in north east. it is the most beautiful place in india along with kashmir. the people there are pretty simple and so fashion conscious that they will put sonam kapoor to shame.

    when will india start with dwarka and finsih with itanagar or kohima?
