He died of a heart attack, and his mortal remains were quickly transported to his ancestral hamlet of Ialong. Mulieh’s last rites slated to take place on Thursday.

Mulieh was a two time MLA and was also a Member of the Jaintia Hills Autonomous District Council (JHADC). He served as a member of the Jowai Assembly Constituency for two years, from 1998 to 2003.

Meanwhile, he was selected as the Chief Executive Member (CEM) and held various positions in JHADC during his long tenure from 1978 to 1994.
