Top court refuses urgent hearing on Sabarimala issue, know more

The top court refused to accord an urgent hearing to the Kerala government’s plea.

The government had challenged the High Court order to appoint a three-member monitoring committee to oversee security and other activities at the Sabarimala temple.

The petition was moved before a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi.

The court said the state government’s fresh plea against the appointment of a three-member panel would be taken up in regular court.

The Kerala High Court recently appointed a three-member panel to oversee security and other arrangements at the historic hill-top shrine in Kerala following recent incidents of violence there.

The state government had earlier sought the transfer of pending petitions from the high court to the Supreme court.
