International Mission of Human Rights, a human rights organisation, on Sunday demanded that the report of the R D Nimesh Commission be made public. The commission was set up to investigate the arrests of 2007 court blasts accused Tariq Qasmi and Khalid Mujahid. The report, submitted on August 21 this year, has been lying with the government since.
"Tariq Qasmi is still an accused but he is being treated worse than an animal inside the Lucknow jail. He is locked inside an 8 ft x 10 ft room and let out only for half-an-hour every day," said Pankaj Mishra, Azamgarh president of the human rights organisation, on Sunday.
On November 23, 2007 successive blasts were witnessed in Lucknow, Faizabad and Varanasi courts.
