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

New Delhi, December 7

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 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. A five-judge constitution Bench headed by then Chief Justice Dipak Misra said in a  4:1 verdict that banning the entry of women into the shrine is gender discrimination and  the practice violates the rights of Hindu women.
