In the press conference at Civil Secretariat here in Agartala city on Thursday noon, the THRC chairman former Justice Swapan Chandra Das said that if the human rights of a person are violated by any government employee or authority, the state human rights commission can give guidelines to the state government through investigation.
He further said that the common people of the state are not able to identify NGOs and State Human Rights Commission separately. Note that NGOs can help the Commission for the Protection of Human Rights. But no NGO is Human Rights Commission. Also private disputes are not under the jurisdiction of the Human Rights Commission.
