A Tribal woman was allegedly raped and murdered by at least two persons at a labour camp of the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) near Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh.

The incident took place on September 27 and police have apprehended one person on suspicion and recorded his statement.

A look-out notice has been issued for the two main culprits who are suspected to be from Assam. Reports said the victim, a married tribal woman and a Jang village resident, about 30 km south-east of Tawang, was engaged as a casual labourer under the BRO on the Jang-Ramasapper road.

The culprits, after raping the woman, allegedly strangled her to death. On August 29, a similar incident of rape and murder of a 35-year-old woman had taken place at Likabali in West Siang district in Arunachal Pradesh. Police, however, could promptly arrest the culprit, again a person from Assam.
