Kalikho Pul found dead

In yet another incident that sends shockwaves across the north eastern region, Kalikho Pul was found dead on Tuesday hardly a month after he was dislodged as Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister.
Pul, who was staying at his same official residence since he assumed the Chief Minister’s Office in January was found hanging inside it in the morning.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi, vice president Rahul Gandhi along with Nabam Tuki and his successor Pema Khandu, DoNER minister Jitendra Singh also condoled his death.

Pul took over as Chief Minister after the Centre ended its President’s Rule and he was dislodged following the Supreme Court’s ruling where the Governor’s order was quashed. Then he paved the way for Pema Khandu to succeed him.
