HC directs Kerala govt to furnish list of endosulfan victims

Kochi: Coming down heavily on the state government, the Kerala High Court Thursday directed it to furnish within two weeks the list of endosulfan victims who have been granted compensation.

The government in its affidavit had earlier informed the court that Rs 21 crore had been granted as compensation to 1,600 victims.

A division Bench, comprising Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice K Vinod Chandran, asked the government to give particulars and details on the disbursement and came down heavily on the government for not supplying sufficient particulars sought by court in its earlier orders.

The government should furnish details within two weeks, the court held.

The orders were issued on a petition by B C Kumaran of Kasaragod, son of an endosulfan victim, seeking to constitute an expert committee.

The petitioner also complained that large number of applications of genuine victims is pending for government’s consideration.
