    It is worth mentioning here that Arunachal Pradesh Governor J P Rajkhowa during his meeting with his Maharashtra counterpart C Vidyasagar Rao at Mumbai on Thursday had sought his intervention for a through probe into the case.
    "I have been personally monitoring the case and that a breakthrough is expected very soon as police investigation into the case was proceeding in right direction. The parents or any other relative of late Marnya could meet me if feel necessary," Rao had told Rajkhowa.
    However, Marina had also sought the help of GoAP, particularly Chief Minister Kalikho Pul and Union MoS (Home) Kiren Rijiju for a probe to her sister's murder and bring the guilty to book to grant justice to the aggrieved family and the departed soul.
