Delhi High Court seeks for reaction by National Human Rights Commission, Manipur govt over extra-judicial murder of 2 people

The Delhi High Court on Friday released a legal notice to the National Human Rights Comnission (NHRC) and Manipur state government over a plea challenging an order passed by the human rights body with relation to the alleged extra judicial killings of two individuals in Manipur.

Single judge bench of Justice Prathiba M. Singh sought reaction from the NHRC and Manipur government over the petition filed by Suhas Chakma, the direcror of the National Campaign for Prevention of Torture, and has now kept the matter for further hearing on April 22, 2021.

The petition adamantly challenges an order passed by the NHRC dated September 8, 2020 alleging that the human rights body has “failed to discharge its basic function as a statutory body established for better protection of human rights.”
