Supreme Court to hear plea on CBI Probe into Kalikho Pul’s Suicide Tomorrow

New Delhi

The Supreme Court would tomorrow hear the plea of Dangwimsai Pul seeking a CBI probe into the death of her husband  and former chief minister of Arunachal Pradesh Kalikho Pul had committed suicide last year. The matter has been listed for hearing before the two- judge bench tomorrow.

In an appeal to the Chief Justice of India, a copy of which she made public at a press conference here last week, Dangwimsai Pul had said “it is essential that an FIR be registered on the basis of the allegations contained in  the suicide note and the case be investigated by the CBI since the primary allegations are of corruption of judges at the highest level.”

She had also alleged that her family was getting threats and she was advised not to hold the press conference in which she made the late chief minister’s suicide note public.

Pul had committed suicide on August 9 last year and his body was found hanging in the official residence of the Chief Minister at Itanagar.

After months of intense political developments, Pul had taken over the reins of Arunachal Pradesh on February 19, 2016 for a brief period but had to relinquish the job following a Supreme Court order in July.
