Tania, son of Congress MLA and Parliamentary Secretary in Health and Family Welfare Department, Nido Pavitra, had died on Thursday after he was allegedly beaten up by some shopkeepers in Lajpat Nagar following an altercation sparked by their taunts on his hairstyle.
Condemning the incident, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today recommended to Lt Governor Najeeb Jung to order a magisterial inquiry into how college student Tanian died following an assault on him and what was the response of the law enforcing agencies.
Government sources said the Lt Governor’s office has approved it.

“The government has adopted a zero tolerance policy towards such unacceptable behaviour since people from all parts of the country and those belonging to other countries, residing in Delhi are its pride. There is no place for elements trying to spread hatred against people belonging to any particular part of the country,” said Kejriwal.
A government official said that the death is not only tragic but raises serious questions on the alleged beating reportedly in public view.
“The loss of an innocent life raises serious questions about the functioning of law enforcement agencies and it needs to be probed how the alleged beating of this student reportedly took place in full public view,” added the official.
Tania’s relatives alleged that he had an altercation with some shopkeepers in Lajpat Nagar on Wednesday after they made fun of his hairstyle, following which they allegedly thrashed him.
Some locals intervened and the quarrel was stopped after which Tania came back home. However, his condition suddenly deteriorated yesterday after which he died under suspicious circumstances, his relatives claimed.
