The spokesman said the party is anguished over reports of use of “unwarranted force”.
No amount of action can ever compensate such loss. Yet it is always needed to ensure accountability as and when any grave omissions or commissions are reported, he said.
The PDP spokesman said a deputation of respectable people from Eidgah locality of downtown area of the city visited the party headquarters and stated that the deceased “was not involved in any protest… which called for a probe and action as a follow up”.
The deputation was assured that party would effectively intervene to seek action upholding its regard for human rights and protection of people of the state, the spokesman said.
