|Freedom fighter Kameju Ningee’s death mourned|
ITANAGAR, Jan 3 - The Arunachal Pradesh press fraternity has mourned the demise of Kameju Ningee, a centenarian freedom fighter, who passed away peacefully at his Hollongi residence, on January 1.
Late Ningee had participated in the Quit India Movement at Gohpur, Assam, alongside freedom fighters Kanaklata Barua and Mukunda Kakoty, who were shot dead during the agitation by a British police officer, in 1942. Late Ningee was born on January 1, 1920 at Changha village near Upper Hollongi village.
Members of the Arunachal Press Club, Arunachal Pradesh Union of Working Journalists, and Arunachal Electronic and Digital Media Association expressed their sympathies to the bereaved family members of Ningee and prayed for eternal peace of the departed soul.
Late Ningee’s mortal remains were laid to rest with the performance of indigenous rituals on his Hollongi residential compound.
He is survived by his wife, seven sons, three daughters and several grandchildren. One of Ningee’s sons, Tagu Ningee, is a reporter with Hindusthan Samachar.
