NHRC wants right to probe allegations against disciplined forces

National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Chairman Kazi Reazul Hoque today urged the government to amend the commission’s law so that it can investigate allegations of human rights violation by law enforcers.

The NHRC chief said this in a meeting with Finance Minister AMA Muhith at the latter’s Secretariat office this noon.

As per the current provision of the law, the commission cannot directly investigate the allegations of human rights violations committed by different disciplined forces in the country, he told journalists after coming out of the meeting.

The finance minister asked for a proposal in this regard, he added.
