Panel to probe Jaya’s death

Chief Minister Edappadi K.Palanisami announced that a Commission of Inquiry headed by a retired High Court judge would be set up to conduct a probe into the death of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. However no concrete steps have been taken so far.

The current focus was on consolidating support for the government under Chief Minister Palaniswami.Not all Ministers were for the probe but those who supported Mr Paneerselvam insisted on it before the merger. Opposition parties said that instead of indulging in a blame game, focus should be on a speedy judicial enquiry.
