Heard both sides.
Learned senior counsel appearing for the petitioners stated that in the Report submitted by the National Human Rights Commission it has been pointed out that in some cases where the killings had taken place, the State had not registered any criminal proceedings/FIR and learned senior counsel appearing for the State of Chhattisgarh refuted these allegations and stated that wherever the killings had been taken place FIRs had been duly registered and in case any such lapses on the part of the State it may do the needful.
Wherever killings had taken place or any such thing happened and if FIR had not been registered the same shall be registered and in case dead-body of any person is found a magisterial enquiry will also follow. Learned counsel appearing for the State also stated that pursuant to the report of NHRC further action had been taken. The State shall file the Action Taken Report by the end of January, 2009.
