Tuticorin firing: Plea to expedite inquiry

Tuticorin: The 29th sitting of one-member commission of inquiry headed by retired Justice Aruna Jagadeesan into the police firing that claimed 15 lives during the anti-Sterlite protest on May 22, 2018, began here on Monday. 58 people have been summoned for the session that will continue till Friday.

Activist Henri Tiphagne who appeared before the commission for cross examination told reporters that people expect the commission to complete its inquiry soon and submit the report before the state government, as it is more than three years since the police firing.

He said that the 28 sittings that have been conducted so far were only for three to five days in a month. Not doubting the quality of the commission’s inquiry, he said that the sitting should be conducted for more days every month as there are around 400 more people to be summoned for inquiry.
