NEW DELHI, May 29: Former chief minister Kalikho Pul's first wife, Dangwimsai Pul, their son Ojingso and Green Arunachal Foundation chairman Takam Tatung on Monday called on Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi at the latter’s office here for updates on a representation to Vice-President Hamid Ansari

Dangwimsai had in the representation on February 28 sought an independent inquiry by a special investigation team into the allegations raised by her late husband in his purported suicide note.

Pul, who was found hanging in the chief minister's residence in Itanagar, allegedly wrote a 60-page note in Hind, titled “Mere Vichaar (My Thoughts)” a day before he committed suicide on August 9 last year.

In the "explosive note", he had accused former and serving SC judges, senior law officers, politicians and other people holding high office of being involved in corruption.

Mehrishi told Dangwimsai that his office received the copies of representations submitted to the vice-president as well as the Union Home Minister and the matter was being seriously looked into. 

Mehrishi further said that the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) was systematically looking into all the focal points of the case after it was forwarded in February by the Arunachal Pradesh state cabinet and his department. The case is awaiting legal opinions from the Attorney General of India.

Tatung said that the home secretary was positive in his response and assured that the MHA would let the outcome of the case be known soon.
