Mysore, Nov 22 (UNI) Karnataka State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) Chairman S R Nayak today said the Commission was contemplating about recommending to the State Government to introduce a special law to deal with public complaints.

Speaking to newsmen here, he said there was need for a special law for speedy trials of the complaints and to solve them immediately.

At present, the SHRC has been facing some problems to take up the cases, particularly social boycott which was on the increase in the state.

He said the state government should give top priority to resolve the issues pertaining to various cases which came up before the Commission.

Mr Nayak said the Rs two crore sanctioned to the Commission by the state government could not be utilised due to insufficient facilities and shortage of staff.

He claimed that during the last 18 month as many as 5,000 cases were registered with the Commission, of which nearly 2,400 cases solved. Out of unsolved 2,600 cases, 880 had been booked suo moto by the Commission with majority of them falling in the category of social boycott harassments and police atrocities.
