The Manipur government on Friday appointed advocate Kangjam Khagendra Singh as a member of Manipur Human Rights Commission (MHRC).
The warrant of appointment was given on the committee recommendation under the proviso to sub-section (1) of section 22 of the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993.
"By virtue of the power vested in me by Sub-section (1) of Section 22 of the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993 (Central Act No 10 of 1994), I do hereby appoint Kangjam Khangendra to be a member of MHRC with effect from the date he assumes charge of office," said an notification issued by the Law commissioner in the name of the governor.
It is notable to mentioned that the MHRC had become non-functional from September since the retirement of Khaidem Mani from the post of acting chairman of the commission after a stint of four years.
Mani took charge of the post on August 30, 2018 and retired on August 31, 2022.
