K'taka can file documents on TN's plea: SC

The Supreme Court on Monday allowed Karnataka to file documents with respect to a petition moved by Tamil Nadu seeking Rs 2,500 crore as compensation for loss of crops for the state’s failure to release Cauvery water in 2012-13.

A bench of Justices V Gopala Gowda and Adarsh Kumar Goel put the original suit filed by Tamil Nadu for consideration on August 8.

Karnataka had claimed it had released water as per the award of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal, even though its people suffered shortage of drinking water.

The court also permitted Tamil Nadu to file its own supporting documents in the registry. The suit has been pending in the apex court since May 2013.
