Hearing the petition (SHRC/234/ Kup/2018 dated 12/07/2018) filed by Human Rights defender Ahsan Untoo, Chairperson of State Human Rights Commission, Justice (Rtd) Bilal Nazki issued a notice to SSP Kupwara and Deputy Commissioner Kupwara and asked them to submit the detailed compliance report before the commission by or before August 20.
