National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) will hold a two-day public hearing in Pune to deal with various issues relating to atrocities and problems faced by scheduled castes.
The hearing on November 29 and 30 will be followed by a meeting with Maharashtra Chief Secretary, DGP and senior civil and police officers on December 1, an NHRC official said.
SC community members, who have a complaint of atrocity committed by a public servant or of negligence by a public servant in prevention of atrocity, can send complaints to the Commission by October 7.
Such complaints as are deemed fit for enquiry shall be taken up at the public hearing, the official said.
NHRC has decided to hold open hearings to reach out to Dalits as per recommendations by K B Saxena in his report commissioned by the Commission on the problems faced by SCs.
