Kochi, Jan 8 (UNI) The Kerala High Court today granted a month's time to the State Government and other parties to file objections to the Justice Paripoornan Commission report, constituted by the High Court to inquire into allegations of corruption and malpractice in the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB).
A Division Bench comprising Justices P R Raman and V K Mohanan gave the time to file objections to the report, submitted to the court on December 19 last.
The High Court had appointed a three-member Commission in January last year to look into the affairs of the TDB, which administered several famous temples in the State, including the famous Lord Ayyappa hill shrine in Sabarimala.
The High Court had constituted the Commission following a writ petition filed by C Radhakrishnan and another person from Ambalappuzha, alleging that the TDB President, two members and the Commissioner had indulged in widespread corruption in the administration of the Board.
