The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has sent the Manipur government a notice calling the conditions under which Irom Sharmila,who began 14th year of her protest fast on November 2,is being held as unconstitutional.

The commission,which visited the activist in Imphal last month,has questioned the fact that Sharmila is not allowed to meet any member of the public without the state government’s permission.

The restrictions imposed on access to Sharmila must be immediately removed as “these are in breach of India’s obligations under international human rights standards and principles,and a grave violation of human rights”,says the October 30 notice. The NHRC wants the Manipur Chief Secretary to report to it by December 6 on the steps taken by it in response.
