Kerala, High court

The Kerala government had come up with a judicial commission to enquire into the involvement of the current Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. However, the Kerala HC seems to have come down heavily on the State by granting interim relief to the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The High Court stayed the Government notification that constituted the said judicial commission.

Justice P.B. Suresh Kumar passed the same as a result of the writ petition filed by the ED against the above-mentioned notification. The judicial commission has now been restrained from acting. The court pointed out the lack of jurisdiction on the part of the Government.
