Judicial probe into Kaleshwaram likely to begin in a fortnight

Hyderabad: Senior irrigation department officials on Monday met with Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose, the former Supreme Court judge and former Lokpal, and briefed him about the Kaleshwaram project and the issues surrounding it.

The team including irrigation secretary Rahul Bojja called on Justice Ghose in Kolkata on Monday. In addition to the briefing, the officials also invited Justice Ghose to come to the city to begin the judicial probe into the Kaleshwaram project.
