Retired Supreme Court judge Pinaki Chandra Ghose is set to be appointed as the country’s first Lokpal, or the anti-corruption ombudsman, sources said today. The selection was made after the Supreme Court set the government a deadline.
Justice Ghose is the one who had convicted Sasikala, the live-in companion of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in a corruption case.
The others members of the Lokpal would include four former High Court judges and four former civil servants.
