“Nowhere In The World Does Investigative Agency Write Out Judgments”; Min P. Rajeev Presents Lok Ayukta Bill

Web Desk(TVM)Updated: Tuesday Aug 23, 2022

Thiruvananthapuram : Minister P. Rajeev presented Lok Ayukta bill in the Assembly Tuesday noon. Lok Ayukta is not a judicial body. Rather, it is a investigation agency. There is no reference in  Lok Ayukta that describes it as as  judicial body, the minister told the House.

Nowhere in this world does an investigation agency  also give out judgments on matters it probes. Also, it is unlawful for an investigative agency to take punishing into its fold. Imagine  the consequences if police, that conducts investigations,  also handed out punishments. That’s not in line with constitutional provisions, the minister said.
