Sabarimala: Issues raised by HC to be included in probe, says VS
Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan on Monday said the issue of lack of co-ordnation among government departments raised by Kerala High court in the context of the Sabarimala stampede would be brought in the ambit of the proposed judicial probe into the tragedy.
"All these issues would be included in the ambit of judicial probe and the guilty will not be spared", he said when reporters sought his reaction to strong observations made by the division bench of the Kerala High Court.
In a suo moto reference, a division bench of the High Court comprising Justice Thottahthil Radhakrishnan and Justice P S Gopinathan observed that there had been lack of co-ordination among various departments in the arrangements for regulating flow of pilgrims at Sabarimala.
The Court also asked the Police and Forest departments and the Trancore Devaswom Board to submit a detailed report on the causes that led to the stampede before January 20.
The Kerala Government had earlier annouced the decision to conduct a judicial probe into the tragedy which claimed 102 lives on Friday last. The Chief Minister had also said the services of a sitting judge would be sought for conducting the inquiry.
