NEW DELHI: Former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Kalhiko Pul's wife on Tuesday petitioned the Vice President of India Hamid Ansari for a probe into the suicide note left behind by her husband.
Dangwimsai, in her petition, sought probe by the special investigation team. Her move comes days after she withdrew her plea from the Supreme Court. She had written to the Chief Justice of India seeking a CBI probe.
CJI J S Khehar then constituted a bench to hear the matter. However, her counsel Dushyant Dave made some sensational allegations in court following which they withdrew the petition.
Dave said that since the note makes allegations against the judiciary, it cannot be heard by the apex court.
Dave also cited a Supreme Court judgment which said the Supreme Court and High Court judges could be probed for corruption with prior permission from the CJI.
