NHRC takes cognisance of racial attack
NEWDELHI: The National Human Rights Commission on Friday took suo motu cognisance of a racial attack on a woman from Manipur in Haryana. The 20-year-old was allegedly subjected to racial discrimination and brutally attacked by locals from Faizapur, Gurugram in Haryana just for passing through the locality on Sunday afternoon.
Reportedly, she was saved by people and police were called.
The NHRC noted, “The police instead of initiating the requisite legal process, asked the victim to compromise. Accordingly, a notice has been issued to the chief secretary and the commissioner of police, Gurugram, calling for a detailed report within four weeks along with status of the investigation and counselling provided by the authorities to the victim.”
