Info panel seeks documents on Pul's death under RTI

Times of India‎‎: Guwahati: Thursday, April 13, 2017.
The Arunachal Pradesh information commission has requested the court trying the suicide case of Kalikho Pul to furnish copies of the forensic report and a note written by the former Arunachal Pradesh CM before he died on August 9.
It has sought the documents in public interest under the Right to Information Act. This follows after Nabam Tagam filed an RTI case seeking information on Pul's death.
While hearing Tagam's petition on Tuesday, Arunachal information commissioner Abraham K Techi instructed the public information officer (Arunachal home department) to seek from the chief judicial magistrate of Yupia information on Pul's suicide case as sought by the petitioner.
A 60-page suicide note was found after Pul's death. The note is believed to have 'explosive revelations' involving politicians and judges.
