Former Arunachal Pradesh CM Kalikho Pul Commits Suicide

NEW DELHI, Aug 09: Former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Kalikho Pul was found hanging in official CM residence on Tuesday.

Congress rebel Pul was appointed as the acting Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh on 19 February 2016 and served for four and a half months from February to July.

Pul had come to power after 12 MLAs supporting then chief minister Nabam Tuki joined his camp.
