Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Friday constituted an interim committee, in response to six public interest litigation petitions against State agencies in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks.
A Division Bench consisting of Chief Justice Swatanter Kumar and Justice Sharad Bobde appointed the retired Supreme Court judge, B.N. Srikrishna, head of the committee.
Advocate Jamshed Mistry, who represented one of the petitioners, said the committee, comprising eminent citizens, would serve as an interface between citizens and State authorities. “The committee will be recommendatory in nature and will not interfere in official investigation.”
Mr. Mistry said the Director-General of Police, the Chief Secretary and the Finance and Home Secretaries, and a representative from the Union government would be on the panel.
