Bangalore, Sep 21 (UNI) Karnataka Human Rights Commission (KHRC) Chairman S R Nayak today said the Commission was yet to get necessary infrastructure facilities and funds from the state government.

Talking to newspersons here, he alleged that though the KHRC was formed just two months back, it was yet to get a proper building, furniture and required staff.

The government was yet to release the Rs one crore fund, announced at the time of constituting the Commission. The Commission had sought Rs 7.5 crore from the government, he said.

Justice Nayak said the Commission was busy drafting rules and regulations and it would be submitted to the government after it was ready.

The Commission required 257 staff, including an investigation officer in the rank of Inspector General of Police and an officer in the rank of Secretary to the state government.

''As on today, there is no Chief Executive Officer for the KHRC,'' he added.

Despite all these shortcomings, the Commission was working to reach the people. It had so far received 105 complaints, of which notices were issued on 100 complaints, justice Nayak said.
