In the last phase of the investigation, there were 1,956 witnesses to be heard in Madurai and it would be done next month and the final report was expected to be ready in another six or seven months, he told reporters here.
Rajasekaran, who is also heading the panel for inquiring into the poll irregularities in cooperative societies in west zone, said 248 complaints were received from the eight districts of the zone and the panel would sit for three days here and take up 22 cases during the period.
After completing Coimbatore, the panel would move to other districts of the zone, he said adding that the probe would be speeded up since the commission was not given extension.
