SHRC issues notice

SRINAGAR: State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) has issued notice to Jammu and Kashmir Chief Secretary, Commissioner Secretary Home and Director General of Police (DGP) and sought a compliance report regarding the detention and shifting of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Yasin Malik to Delhi.
The SHRC chairperson, Rtd. Justice Bilal Nazki has issued the notice after a petition has been filed by International Forum for Justice Human Rights JK chairman Muhammad Ahsaan Untoo.
Untoo had pleaded before the SHRC that Malik is a political worker and was detained under Public Safety Act (PSA) and put in Kotbalwal jail, but was later handed over to National Investigation Agency (NIA).
A document reads that the authorities illegally allowed the police authorities to change the custody which is otherwise illegal in nature and handed over custody to NIA.
