GUWAHATI, Feb 1 � Of the 7,431 cases registered with the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) since 1996, over 750 of them are yet to be disposed of.
However, with the appointment of two new members in December last year, the Commission is hopeful of addressing the rights violation cases.
The SHRC, in the year 2009-10, had registered as many as 296 cases, of which 11 are yet to be reach logical conclusion.
It has been reliably learnt that in the subsequent year (2010-11), 264 cases were registered, out of which only 138 cases could disposed of.
The Commission recorded highest registration of cases during 2001-03, in which 604 numbers of cases were entertained. Of the 604 registered cases, 373 cases of human rights violation are still pending.
The registered cases mostly include cases against police officials and in several cases, the violators had been made to pay compensation to the victims.
An official, when asked, said that the Commission plans to dispose of around 80 per cent of the pending cases by the end of the current year.
