Maharashtra government has submitted suggestions of names for the inquiry committee for the Kamala mills fire case. The names have been submitted to the Bombay High Court in a sealed cover. The High Court is expected to announce the name of the committee on March 19.
Last month, the Bombay High Court ordered setting up of a three-member committee to investigate the Kamala mills fire case. The committee is led by a retired high court judge.
