‘Justice Vishnu Sahai Commission prima facie illegal’

Lucknow, March 8 (IANS) The single-member Justice Vishnu Sahai Commission, which probed the 2013 Muzaffarnagar communal riots and whose report was tabled in Uttar Pradesh Assembly on Sunday has come under cloud after a social activist has challenged its constitution in first place.

Activist Nutan Thakur has asked Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to get the Muzaffarnagar riots enquired by a competent enquiry committee as under the section 24(3) of the Protection of Human Rights Act 1993, chairperson or a member of State Human Rights Commission is held ineligible for any further employment under central or state government.

Thakur said that Justice Vishnu Sahai had been member of UP Human Rights Commission between June 2008 to December 2012 and hence he was ineligible to be appointed as the chairman of any enquiry commission under Commission of Enquiries Act.

She said that findings of the enquiry report, as tabled in the UP assembly, confirm that Sahai was very soft with the irregularities of the state government officers.

She has asked the chief minister to institute a genuine Enquiry Commission 1952 to probe the riots.
