Dharam Singh hails Malimath's services

By Our Staff Reporter

BANGALORE, JUNE 12. The State Government would spare no effort in pressing for the early implementation of the recommendations of the Malimath Committee report on revamping the criminal justice system, the Chief Minister, N. Dharam Singh, said here today.

The Union Government had set up the committee, headed by the former Chief Justice of the Karnataka and Kerala High Courts V.S. Malimath and all that remained was to implement the significant recommendations made in the report, which had been accepted, Mr. Dharam Singh said. He was speaking at a function to felicitate Mr. Malimath who turned 75 on Saturday.

The Chief Minister also urged the former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda with whose party, the Janata Dal (S), the Congress has formed a coalition Government in the State, to work for the implementation of the report.

Mr. Dharam Singh described Mr. Malimath's service as illustrious.

The contribution of Mr. Malimath was worthy of emulation, and his life and the ideals he had upheld were an education, Mr. Deve Gowda said, while acknowledging that Mr. Malimath's efforts to dispense justice quickly and reduce pendency of cases in the higher courts were incomparable.

Mr. Malimath was felicitated on the occasion with a Mysore turban and shawl.
