The government on Monday said it is not averse to a judicial inquiry into the Metro accident but maintained that it would wait for the report of an expert committee mandated to conduct an investigation into the mishap within 10 days.

“Judicial inquiry is no panacea,” Union Urban Development Minister S Jaipal Reddy said while responding to Gurudas Dasgupta of the CPI. “We are not averse to ordering any judicial inquiry.”

Reddy said the expert committee’s report will be in by July 22,and “we will look at the report and take a view”. The committee will look into various aspects like design,quality of material used and precautionary measures. He quoted data to buttress claims that DMRC’s track record matched international standards. “We do not suffer by contrast,” he said.
