Demanding for Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) intervention, former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Kalikho Pul's eldest widow Dangsimsai has demanded a fair probe into her husband's suicide.

According to the reports, she has shared a 60-page-long suicide note and said, "A free and fair probe should be done. Itanagar Police isn't probing the matter with seriousness and the state government does not care. I request the honourable PM to intervene".

On August 9, 2016 the former CM allegedly committed suicide. He was found hanging from a ceiling fan, days after being removed from the seat of power by the Supreme Court.

"I spoke to him on August 8, 2016 as I was returning to Delhi for my college. He evidently looked depressed though he didn't share it with us. Last few days of his life he spent alone and didn't speak to anyone and was busy writing his suicide note," said his son Ojingso Pul.

Dangsimsai said her family was under constant threat and demanded security from the government.

"My family has been getting threats from the state government to not release the 60 page suicide note, my son lives in Delhi and I need security for him," she said. His son said, "the threats are not life threats but they are intimidating us. I have brothers and sisters who need security."

'Mere Vichar', the note written by Kaliko Pul mentioned several "deliberate irregularities" by top law officers and state leaders over the years.

"I want all the names included in the suicide note to step down or else we cannot expect a fair probe while they are in power," said his wife.

Kalikho Pul had become Chief Minister on February 19, 2016, after he along with 29 (19 Congress and 11 BJP) MLAs had defected to the People's Party of Arunachal Pradesh (PPA), a state outfit, to form a new government, bringing down the existing Congress government, led by Nabam Tuki.

However, the Supreme Court reinstated Tuki's government on July 13, 2016, following which Pul and his supporters again supported Pema Khandu as CM.
