SC declines Kerala’s urgent hearing plea against new panel on Sabarimala

PTI New Delhi | Updated on December 07, 2018

The Supreme Court on Friday declined an urgent hearing on a fresh plea of the Kerala government challenging the High Court’s decision to set up a panel to oversee pilgrimage at Sabarimala, which has witnessed protests after women of all age groups were allowed entry into the temple.

The Kerala High Court, on November 28, had ordered the setting up of a three-member committee to oversee law and order at the shrine.

Earlier, the State government had moved the top court seeking transfer of pending pleas relating to the Sabarimala temple from the High Court to the apex court, alleging that members of “right-wing outfits” are obstructing the implementation of its verdict allowing all women inside the shrine.
