The victim lawyer has been identified as Bilal Kagzi (39), a native of Kosamba village of Mangrol tehsil in Surat district.

Gandhinagar: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued a show-cause notice to the Chief Secretary of Gujarat as to why the state government should not pay Rs 1 lakh as compensation to a human rights lawyer in South Gujarat who was “admittedly” falsely implicated in a criminal case by police in Surat district. The Chief Secretary has been directed to submit a reply within four weeks.

The victim lawyer has been identified as Bilal Kagzi (39), a native of Kosamba village of Mangrol tehsil in Surat district. The NHRC passed the order dated August 17, 2020, while acting on a complaint lodged by Human Rights Defenders’ Alert (HRDA) – India, a Tamil Nadu-based forum that functions “to initiate action on behalf of human rights defenders under threat or with security concerns”.

The HRDA lodged the complaint in September 2019 on the basis of a communication it received from Kagzi and other sources.
