The Supreme Court on Friday appointed retired Kerala High Court judge C.N. Ramachandran Nair to prepare a detailed inventory of Thiruvabharanam (sacred ornaments) of the Sabarimala temple deity Lord Ayyappa.
A Bench led by Justice N.V. Ramana said the Ramachandran Nair committee may take the help of an expert appraiser in the exercise. The detailed list will be handed over to the apex court in a sealed cover. The court listed the case for hearing in four weeks.
The order was initiated on the advice of the Kerala government, represented by Attorney General K.K. Venugopal. The court had on Wednesday asked the State’s opinion on the measures to be taken to keep the ornaments safe and secure.
