"I have directed to record their statements and we will take action based on their statements," NHRC Chairman KG Balakrishnan told reporters after meeting the two.
NHRC officials said the two had appeared before the human rights watchdog on their own and were not called.

Asked whether the two have sought protection, Balakrishanan said a decision to give them security will be taken after recording their statements.
While the NHRC had issued a suo moto notice to the Andhra Pradesh government on alleged police action, the panel has received three other complaints demanding action.
Twenty people from Tamil Nadu were gunned down in a police operation in Seshachalam hill ranges of Chittoor district on April 7 even as the family members and relatives of the deceased alleged that the incident was a "planned murder" by AP Police.
Several political parties have questioned the police action, saying labourers and not red sanders smugglers were killed by the Andra Pradesh STF.
