The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Friday issued notice to the deputy commissioner of Kulgam, district in Jammu and Kashmir over the alleged encroachment of land belonging to a Pandit family, a statement said on Friday.

“A notice has been issued to the deputy commissioner and superintendent of police, Kulgam, Jammu and Kashmir and they have been asked to submit a report in the matter within two weeks,” a statement from the NHRC said.

The NHRC took cognizance of the land grab after media reports appeared of a Pandit family being allegedly assaulted by a group of local people when they visited their apple orchard for sprinkling pesticides, and found their land encroached upon.

The commission observed that the content of the media report, if true, raised a serious issue of the violation of human rights.
