Sabarimala probe: Govt to seek services of HC judge
Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Cabinet on Tuesday formalised the proposal to order a judicial inquiry into
the stampede that claimed the lives of 102 Ayyappa pilgrims
at Pullumedu on January 14.
The government would seek the services of a sitting judge
of the Kerala High Court considering the seriousness of the
tragedy, Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan told reporters
during his Cabinet briefing.
"It often is difficult to get the services of a sitting
judge for inquiries considering the heavy workload in High
Courts. However, considering the seriousness of the issue,
the government would write to the Chief Justice (of High Court)
to accept the request," he said.
The terms-of-reference of the inquiry would be decided after
getting the services of the judge, he added.
