The recovery of the corpse of the american missionary who was killed last November 16 by a group of aboriginal Sentinel of the North, near Burma, is hampered by the reluctance of the indian authorities to disrupt this tribe that lives in isolation. The possibility of transmitting a common disease that is considered to be the last group preneolítico of the world, or even to disturb their mode of life, prevent to land on the island to inhabit to continue the investigation.
indian authorities are working "with the anthropologists and psychologists," to establish a strategy, as has been mentioned Dependra Pathak, director general of the police in the islands, according to Reuters. "If [the experts] suggest any method to interact with them without bother, we will be able to establish a operating. For the moment we do not have any plan to contact them," he said.MORE INFORMATION on The american killed by aborigines: “I love you and Jesus loves you!”
Several cops, indians came last Friday in a boat about 400 meters away from the island, india, from which they sighted with binoculars to aboriginal people. These were at the same beach where John Allen Chau, 26, was last seen before being shot with arrows. The police ended up walking away from it to avoid any confrontation, after spotting members of the tribe armed with bows and arrows. "We looked, and we were looking at them", Venüsbet told AFP one of the police officers. It was the second time that the police came to this island in the archipelago of Andaman and Nicobar.
The day of the event a few fishermen came by sea to Allen, up to a point that the u.s. continued to solo in a canoe to try to reach the coast, with the intention of introducing christianity into this island, as stated in his last writings, disseminated by local media. One of the fishermen has ensured that he saw the tribe "by burying the body on the beach", according to AFP. The fishermen, who have been detained, have accompanied the authorities to help determine the place where they left it to Allen.
Try to recover the body would be a "futile exercise", according to told AFP Pankaj Sekhsaria, a researcher of the islands and an expert in rights tribal. "I don't think it's a good idea to get close, because it will create a conflict with the community," he says. "I don't think that there is a safe way to retrieve the body without putting the sentineleses or others at risk," said Sophie Grig, a researcher at Survival International, a global movement for the rights of indigenous peoples.
The authorities are studying a similar case occurred twelve years ago, as if this tribe of hunters and gatherers follow the same steps then. In 2006, two fishermen were killed on the approach to the island while they slept. A week after they were hanged on the beach on bamboo stakes.
