Former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Kalhiko Pul's wife has petitioned the Vice President of India for a probe into the suicide note left behind by her husband.
Dangwimsai, in her petition, sought for a probe by the special investigation team.
The move comes after she had withdrawn her plea from the Supreme Court. She 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.
Dave said in court that the note states that a former judge had approached Pul on behalf of the CJI, J S Khehar. He asked why the letter written by Dangwimsai had been converted into a writ petition.
He then went on to cite a Supreme Court judgment which said the SC and HC judges could be probed for corruption with prior permission from the CJI. If the CJI himself is the person against whom allegations are made, then the government shall consult any judge of the SC.
Dave sought to know why the letter was converted into a writ petition. The CJI was expected to take a decision on the administrative side. Dave further questioned if the CJI is precluded from taking a decision on the letter as the allegations in the suicide note concerned the CJI's son?
