PBT Calls For Removal of NHRC Chairman, ex-CJI K.G. Balakrishnan

PBT has sent a memorandum to the Prime Minister urging him to remove former chief justice of India (CJI), K.G. Balakrishnan, as the head of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC). A sitting Supreme Court judge has accused that as the head of the Apex Court in 2009, Justice Balakrishnan deliberately suppressed the name of tainted union minister, A. Raja, involved with the 2G-scam. Justice Balakrishnan has been in the center of many other highly controversial issues during his tenure as the CJI. PBT believes that the head of the Human Rights Commission must be above the fray of all controveries. Memorandum to PM: Remove Justice Balakrishnan from NHRC
