No to Farcical Enquiries; Shame on the NHRC for its Partisanship

Jamia Teachers’ Solidarity Group rejects the NHRC’s report on the Batla House ‘encounter’, which gives a clean chit to the Delhi Police. The NHRC claims that on the basis of the “material placed before us, it cannot be said that there has been any violation of human rights by the actions of police”. Indeed, we would like to know what material was placed before the NHRC for inspection. The NHRC enquiry into the case, one will remember, came far too late, and that too at the insistence of the High Court.
