Petition filed in Kumbakonam fire case

A petition has been filed in the Madras High Court Bench here against withdrawing the prosecution of two education department officials and a Tahsildar, in a case related to the death to 94 children in a fire that engulfed a private school in Kumbakonam on July 16, 2004. K. Inbaraj, one of the witnesses, had filed the petition challenging an order passed by the Thanjavur Principal District and Sessions Judge who consented to a plea to withdraw the case against the three officials.
