NHRC has refuted allegations in a section of media regarding the leakage of the report relating to the post poll violence in West Bengal. It said the attribution regarding the alleged leakage of the Report to the NHRC is absolutely baseless and factually incorrect. NHRC said it has already shared the copy of the report with the advocates of the concerned parties in this matter in accordance with the directions of the Calcutta High Court.
NHRC constituted a Committee to enquire into the post poll violence in West Bengal as per directions of the High Court. The Committee submitted its report to the Court on 13th July. 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.
