New Delhi: National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Tuesday issued notice to the DGP of Haryana and SSP of Katihal district in connection with an attack on Dalits at Pabwana village.

The notice was issued after NHRC took suo motu cognizance of a media report about the incident. Giving four weeks' time to Haryana government to submit a report, the rights body also asked the police to respond to a previous notice relating to fleeing of 100 Dalits from the same village after being attacked by members of the upper caste.

The Commission has observed that the content of the news report, if true, raises a serious issue of the violation of human rights.
