Pul’s death strikes anger in Itanagar

Violence erupts in Itanagar on Tuesday minutes after Kalikho Pul was found dead inside his residence. His supporters in large number came out to the capital streets and targeted Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein ransacking his official residence.

They blamed it all on Chief Minister Pema Khandu and his deputy Chow Mein for the entire incident alleging that the leader was killed indeed.

An irate mob started proceeding towards the residence of Pema Khandu. But they could not move ahead because of heave presence of security forces who have been keeping on alert.

Many local organizations have also demanded an impartial probe to unearth the details of the incident saying that he was killed and that he never committed suicide.
