March 3, 2014 - New Delhi
In another embarrassing situation, Justice KT Thomas has quit as the head of the Lok Pal Search Panel.
Reports say that he sent his resignation to the Prime Minister to head the nine members search committee.
It may be recalled here that noted jurist Fali Nariman refused the government's invitation to be a part of the committee.
In a letter to the Prime Minister's Officer, he said that ' I have decided to withdraw from the search committee after I studied the rules. The selection committee itself can find out the persons from the list of central government, what the search committee is expected to do and forward the list to the government'.
