New Delhi, May 25 (ILNS): The Supreme Court today allowed the impleadment of certain organisations, such as the National Commission for Women (NCW) and the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), into the hearing of a plea, seeking directions against the West Bengal government to end the “state-sponsored” violence, constitute a SIT to investigate fairly into the issue and take action against the culprits.
The Vacation Bench of Justices Vineet Saran and BR Gavai issued notice in this regard and has set June 7 as the next date of hearing.
Senior Advocate Pinky Anand, arguing for the petitioners, claimed that social workers have been ‘harassed’ in the post-poll violence in West Bengal.
She said that various commissions, such as NCW, have reported on the condition in relief camps. She asked for the Commission to be made party respondents. Others crying to be made party, said the counsel, was the NHRC. ILNS\KR\SJ\RJ
