Human rights panel sends notice on Amarnath yatra massacre
Taking suo motu action in the gruesome killings of Amarnath pilgrims by Kashmiri terrorists, the National Human Rights Commission today issued notices to the ministries of home and defence as well as the Jammu and Kashmir government to reply within four weeks on the issue.
The full commission issued the notices on the basis of media reports -- 'IB warnings were ignored', 'Jammu and Kashmir refusal to heed MHA plea proved fatal' and 'Accusing fingers point to Jammu and Kashmir police', published in national dailies.
The commission, in its order, said these reports alleged the failure of the state government to act on the intelligence and other reports.
"If true, it would amount to negligence in the prevention of violation of human rights of a large number of people," the NHRC said.
The commission also issued notices to the state chief secretary and the director general of police.
