There was high drama in the court hall of the Supreme Court presided by Justices A K Goel and U U Lalit which was hearing the Kalhiko Pul case. The 60-page suicide note written by Pul, former chief minister of Arunachal Pradesh, made some sensational disclosures. Pul’s wife, Dangwimsai had written to the Chief Justice of India seeking a CBI probe. A bench was constituted to hear the matter.
However her counsel Dushyant Dave made some sensational allegations in the court following which they withdrew the petition. Dave said that since the note makes allegations against the judiciary, it cannot be heard by the SC.
