Sabarimala: SC refuses urgent hearing on Kerala govt’s plea against committee to oversee security

The Supreme Court on Friday refused to accord an urgent hearing to the Kerala government’s plea challenging the High Court order to appoint a three-member monitoring committee to oversee security and other activities at the  Sabarimala temple.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi 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 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.
