4 Booklets ‘Written’ By Ex-Arunachal Chief Minister Kalikho Pul Found

ITANAGAR: Four booklets reportedly written by former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Kalikho Pul, who allegedly committed suicide on Tuesday, have been found in his room and handed over to the police.

“We have not read the booklets so it cannot be assumed as suicide note. There was no diary found from the spot as has been reported earlier. Police have already registered a case and it is under investigation,” Additional District Magistrate (ADM) Talo Potom, who conducted the inquest, told reporters here today.

The four 60-page booklets, titled ‘Mere Vichaar’ (My Thoughts), allegedly signed by Kalikho Pul, were found in the room where he was found dead, the ADM said.

Mr Potom said he had sealed the documents and handed it over to police.

“I was only ordered to conduct inquest by the District Magistrate under Section 176 of the CrPc,” he said.

The ADM said four mobile handsets and one tablet were also found and handed over to police.

Principal Secretary (Home) Satya Gopal said that an inquiry would be carried out.

Mr Gopal said the medical board constituted by the state government has not submitted the post-mortem report yet. “They are duty bound to submit the report once it is finalised,” he said.
