New Delhi, Feb 3 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Wednesday appointed a four-member committee to probe the alleged violations of labour laws at Commonwealth Games project sites.

A bench headed by Chief Justice A P Shah formed the committee comprising a labour commissioner, labour secretary, former UN ambassador and a person associated with National Human Rights Commission (NHRC).

The court asked the committee to meet on Monday to look into the allegations and file its report by March 17.

The court passed the order on a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by Peoples Union for Democratic Rights, a civil rights group alleging that the Centre has failed to force private companies to abide by the labour laws.

The rights group pleaded that the court should interfere to correct the impression and to bring relief to thousands of poor and vulnerable contract daily wage workers, who are employed on these projects. (ANI)
