New Delhi: National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) chairman Justice H L Dattu on Wednesday said the rights watchdog needed some teeth to enforce its orders on remedial measures in cases relating to violations.
“NHRC is a toothless tiger. We painstakingly investigate human rights violation cases, sometimes in remote areas, with our limited resources. The evidence collected is put to forensic judicial adjudication by its chairman and members, who are former judges. But at the end, when NHRC arrives at a finding, it can only recommend remedial measures or direct the state concerned to pay compensation,” ex-CJI Dattu told TOI.
