Chennai: Terming the firing incident at
Paramakudi as "unfortunate", Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J
Jayalaithaa on Monday said the government will form an inquiry
commission under a retired High Court Judge to probe it.
Replying to special call attention motion moved by
opposition parties in the state Assembly, Jayalalithaa
initially said the government would act on a DRO probe.
But after opposition parties CPI(M), CPI and Puthiya
Tamizhagam insisted for a probe under a retired High Court
judge, she said a commission would be formed in this regard
under a former High Court judge.
She said peace committees, which were dormant during the
previous DMK regime, would come into existence again in
communally sensitive areas besides taking other precautionary
measures to prevent any communal violence in the state.
