Human rights notice to HM on Naxals

NHRC issued a notice to Home Ministry for alleged violation of rights in operations against Naxals.



New Delhi: The National Human Rights
Commission (NHRC) has issued a notice to Home Ministry for
alleged violation of rights after taking cognizance of reports
of security men trussing bodies of naxals killed to poles.

The Commission has sought a reply from the Secretary of
Home Ministry within a month, ie by July 27, on the issue, an
NHRC statement said here on Tuesday.

It took cognizance of media reports depicting photographs
of security men carrying bodies of Naxalites, including women,
with their hands and feet tied to bamboo poles after an
anti-Naxal operation in West Bengal`s West Midnapore district.

The Commission observed that "the report, if true, raises
a serious issue of violation of human rights of the victims",
the statement said.

In a major success, security forces had gunned down 12
Maoists, including three women, in a fierce encounter in Ranja
forest of Salboni in West Midnapore on June 16, almost a year
after anti-Naxal operations were launched in the district in
West Bengal.
