New Delhi: Hours after Anna Hazare was taken into preventive custody, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Tuesday issued notices to the Union Home Secretary and the Delhi Police Commissioner seeking a report within two weeks on the episode.

The Commission notice came this evening after it received a complaint from a human rights activist Anirudhasudhan Chakraborty, who alleged that provisions of Constitution and international human rights conventions were violated in the police action against Anna and his supporters.

"The Commission received a complaint regarding the preventive action against Anna. The complainant claimed that Anna and his supporters were to stage a peaceful protest and action has been taken against them," an NHRC spokesperson said.
