Rights body issues notice to Haryana police

After a video emerged this week of a policeman hitting a woman with a belt in Faridabad, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Tuesday issued a notice to the Haryana Police over the incident, which is believed to have happened in October last year.

In a statement, the NHRC said it had issued a notice to the Director General of Police of the State, seeking a detailed report within six weeks.

Status of case

The NHRC asked about the status of the case lodged against the public servants concerned. “As reported, such a cruel and inhuman act of policemen against a woman in their custody indicates that the public servants not only failed to perform their duty, but also acted in an unlawful and unethical manner, causing indignity to a woman in their custody,” the NHRC said.
