The Supreme Court on Monday asked Tamil Nadu and Kerala to “extend cooperation” to the empowered committee appointed by it to go into the safety and other aspects of the Mullaperiyar dam row, after the panel complained about non-cooperation by the two states.

“We want both the states to extend cooperation to the committee,” the five-judge Constitution Bench observed after the committee, in its interim, report stated that it was unable to complete the task as the two governments were not cooperating with it.

The panel while complaining about the alleged non-cooperation of the two states sought additional time for submission of its report upon which the Supreme Court granted time till April 30.

The Bench comprising Justices D K Jain, R M Lodha, Deepak Verma, C K Prasad and A R Dave, while passing the direction, listed the matter for further hearing to May 4.
