After three days of protests, vandalism, arson and the loss of a life, the Arunachal Pradesh government today scrapped the plan to give permanent resident status to two tribes from outside the state. The announcement came after daylong protests during which Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein's private house was torched and the police fought a pitched battle with a mob bent on targeting Chief Minister Pema Khandu's house in Itanagar. The state capital and its adjoining areas continue to be under curfew. The army and six companies of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police have been deployed to restore law and order.
