It provided a copy of the report to its Advocate in Calcutta, who shared with the Advocates of all the concerned parties in the related multiple writ petitions.

The Commission said the matter being sub -judice, the Committee did not share its report to any entity other than those specified by the Court. It said since the report is already available with all the concerned parties, there is no question of leakage at the level of the NHRC.
