The status report filed by the Dharmapuri police superintendent Asra Garg in the Madras High Court on Tuesday will not influence our inquiry; we will conduct an independent inquiry, Justice S R Singaravelu said here on Thursday.

Speaking to media persons, he said, “Never, will a police inquiry influence us. Our inquiry is impartial and no one can influence us. It is not a rubber stamp commission. Our inquiry totally differs from a police probe. We did not come here to just approve the police report.”

Further, he said, “We have concerns over public interests, dutiful to the government and are responsible to the court. Our honourable Chief  Minister had constituted this committee to expose the truth behind Ilavarasan’s death, so this committee is committed to conducting an honest inquiry.”

He said the committee has so far received nearly thirty affidavits directly and through post. Anyone, who has information connected with the case can appear before the commission.

“The commission wants both the parties (Ilavarasan’s and Divya’s relatives) to report honestly to the commission,” he added.
