Former Solicitor-General Gopal Subramanium has withdrawn his letter to the Supreme Court opting out as amicus curiae in the Padmanabha Swamy temple case. Mr. Subramanium has already swung into action and left for Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala to inspect the temple premises and prepare an additional report on the administration of the temple.

Supreme Court sources said the case files had been sent back to him and he was expected to appear in the case in November. They said he decided to withdraw his letter after the court asked him to reconsider his decision.

Early this month, he had written to Chief Justice of India R.M. Lodha, expressing his decision to bow out as amicus curiae. He had also returned the files concerning the case to the Supreme Court Registry.

Mr. Subramanium’s report on the condition of the temple and its assets in Thiruvananthapuram had created a storm.

The report had complained of corruption and disregard of ethics in the temple’s administration.
