Rajkhowa, who stepped down as governor in September, told The Indian Express that he had been seeking a CBI inquiry into the circumstances leading to Pul’s death.

Days after he resigned as governor of Arunachal Pradesh, Jyoti Prasad Rajkhowa has claimed that former chief minister Kalikho Pul, who was found hanging in his Itanagar home on August 9, left behind “secret notes” running into 60 pages with content so “explosive” that its revelation can cause “tremors in Indian politics”. Rajkhowa says he has not seen the notes himself. Pul was unseated as chief minister in July after the Supreme Court restored the government of Nabam Tuki. Less than a month later, Pul was found dead.

Rajkhowa, who stepped down as governor in September, told The Indian Express that he had been seeking a CBI inquiry into the circumstances leading to Pul’s death. “Because before his death, Pul had written one long note, a series of notes with the title Mere Vichar or my thoughts, in about 60 pages,” he said.

“There were four copies which were handed over to police. Whether these are still with police or have been handed over to the court concerned, I do not know,” he said.

“But some people, rather many people, had the opportunity to scan the pages before these were seized by police. And those pages reveal so many things that if they come out, there will be tremors in Indian politics… what has happened to those 60 pages?”

“A lot is to be found there. He (Pul) has commented about colleagues who are supposed to have betrayed him. I am told it has been circulating on social media that he gave comments about all kinds of corruption… he mentioned how certain politicians, their fathers and forefathers who didn’t have good financial backgrounds, became crorepatis,” Rajkhowa said.

He said he was very upset with the way police were conducting a probe into Pul’s death. “The first thing I inquired
was who’s investigating the case. I was told that some sub-inspector is investigating the case. I was shocked. A chief minister dies under mysterious circumstances and the case is being investigated by a sub-inspector? The minimum should have been an investigation by an SP or a DCP. Later, Mr (Pema) Khandu (the current chief minister) declared that an IGP-level officer would investigate the case,” he said.

Reached for comments, Arunachal Pradesh DGP S Nithianandan said: “We are going to file the investigation report on former chief minister Kalikho Pul’s death as soon as possible. But we have not yet investigated the 60-page notes that he left behind.”

“The mandate given to us was a limited one — to know the nature of Mr Pul’s death. We don’t know if those pages are general notes or suicide notes. I have not read them,” he said.

“Pul’s diary is part of the panchnama and it was duly sealed and handed over to the magistrate. The court is likely to go through our report and, on the basis of our report, if the court thinks it fit, it can ask us to investigate details of those notes,” Nithianandan said.

IGP N Payeng, who is investigating the Pul case, told The Indian Express: “I have got the forensic laboratory
report and also his postmortem report. Now, we will file the (investigation) report.” On Pul’s notes, Payeng said: “Those pages were sealed and handed over to the magistrate.” Asked about the Pul notes, C P Joshi, Congress general secretary in charge of Arunachal Pradesh affairs, said: “I am not aware of these notes. I don’t know anything.”

                    AAP (AAM Admi Psychopath) tapes are most worst than any other scam tapes in India. As these gunda party members do atleast one crime everyday as they don't know how to govern. These AAP should be elimimated / distro completely!!!

                                    As a governor isn't it his consutional and moral responsibility to uphold the law. All such people who throw insinuations and don't do their duty should be arrested straight away. We can't have this selective application of duties for personal gains
