Once governor K Sankaranarayanan decides on the state government’s demand state information commissioner Ramanand Tiwari’s suspension in the Adarsh society case, he will forward his decision to the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court will then hold an inquiry. Its recommendations to the state will form the basis for the state’s decision on Tiwari’s dismissal.

The governor will first study the state’s report, which will detail all the information it has on Tiwari.

Tiwari is one of the several bureaucrats under the scanner for providing clearances to the controversial Adarsh society at Colaba.

The 31-storeyed tower is under the scanner for allegedly violating environmental norms and giving bureaucrats and politicians flats in return for clearances.

Chief minister Prithviraj Chavan, who was in Aurangabad on Wednesday, said a judicial probe in the case will be announced soon.

Chavan, however, refused to divulge the details of the procedure to remove Tiwari from his constitutional post.

The state is likely to initiate a departmental inquiry against 21 government officials, including 12 serving and retired bureaucrats for their alleged role in the Adarsh scam.
