Congress rebel Kalikho Pul, who briefly served as Arunachal Pradesh chief minister, allegedly committed suicide here.

Pul, 47, allegedly hanged himself from the ceiling fan in his bedroom, a top police officer said. He was found dead at the chief minister’s official residence which he was yet to vacate.

One of his three wives found him hanging this morning.

He is survived by three wives and four children.

As Pul’s death news spread all the MLAs from ruling and opposition parties, ministers, friends and members of public rushed to the bungalow.

The circumstances behind the death were still not clear.

Pul, who took over the reigns of the state on February 19 this year, served as Chief Minister for a brief time with the Supreme Court in July reinstating Nabam Tuki, who then made way for Pema Khandu as the 10th Chief Minister.
