Rights panel orders Bihar to compensate child

 Bihar Human Rights Commission (BHRC) has asked the state government to pay a compensation of Rs 30,000 to a child against whom the police filed a charge-sheet in an assault case but did not withdraw it for four years.

Issuing the directive, the BHRC chairman Justice (Retd) Bilal Nazki asked the government to not only initiate departmental proceedings against the guilty police officers Suresh Manjhi and JP Rai, but also gave the option of recovering the compensation amount from the cops’ salary.

The rights panel ordered that the compensation amount remain in the form of a fixed deposit till the child attains the age of 18.
