Ex-Arunachal CM Kalikho Pul’s son dies mysteriously in UK


GUWAHATI: Body of former Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Kalikho Pul’s son has been found under mysterious circumstances in United Kingdom on Sunday. Shubanso Pul, son of former Arunchal CM was found dead at his apartment in Brighton, Sussex in the UK. Kalikho Pul had committed suicide in his state bungalow in August 2016.

He was the son of Late CM Kalikho Pul’s first wife Dangwimsai Pul.

The family and well-wishers are trying to talk to the High Commission of India in London, UK so that his body could be brought back to his home town, said a family member.

Kalikho Pul was the chief minister of  Arunachal Pradesh for a brief period in 2016. He was elected five times from the Hayuliang assembly constituency of the state representing the Indian National Congress.

After months of intense political developments, Kalikho Pul had taken over the reins of Arunachal Pradesh on February 19, 2016, for a brief period but had to relinquish the job following a Supreme Court order in July 2016. A month later he was found hanging in the official CM residence.
