Claiming that Kalikho Pul, who allegedly committed suicide, left "explosive secret notes", Arunachal Pradesh ex-Governor Jyoti Prasad Rajkhowa, on 26 October, sought a CBI inquiry into the former chief minister's death.

"Many eminent people have informed me that Pul has left behind explosive secret notes that can shake Indian politics," Rajkhowa said.

Pul's body was found hanging at his Itanagar chief minister's bungalow on 9 August.

Asked if he had seen the notes, Rajkhowa, who had demitted office last month, said, "I am not privy to the notes. I have been apprised of some of the things written there, but I wouldn't like to reveal them at this point of time."

"No question of me as the Governor then interfering in the administration and calling for the notes," Rajkhowa said.

"Many people have seen the notes. Pul's family read them. The contents have been mentioned in social media, in the local news papers of Arunachal Pradesh and many renowned people have told me about the contents," he said.

"That is why I had written to Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu to ask for an independent CBI inquiry. Khandu was very positive. But after I gave up my Governor's post, there is no response to that," he pointed out.
