New Delhi: Government today said eight states have not constituted the state human rights commission despite repeated requests.

Minister of State for Home Jitendra Singh said those states which have not constituted the state human rights commissions are Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Haryana, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and Uttarakhand.

"The government and National Human Rights Commission have been requesting all those states which have not yet constituted their state commission to do so at the earliest," he informed Lok Sabha in a written reply.

Singh said the Centre and the NHRC are keen that each state sets up a state human rights commission and the responsibility to ensure adequate manpower and infrastructure for each SHRC lies primarily with the respective state government.
