Monday September 9, 2013 7:54 PM, IANS

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Monday appealed to the people to maintain calm and harmony in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar town, where communal clashes have left at least 28 people dead.

"The commission is deeply concerned over the Muzaffarnagar riots. We appeal to all sections of society to maintain calm and harmony to overcome this unfortunate situation," said a commission official.

"We are keeping a watch on the developments even as the government agencies are making their efforts to control the situation and restore normalcy," the official said.

The panel would urge government agencies to ensure that human rights of the people are not violated in this process, the official added.

The NHRC also advised the state government to take strict measures so that no further damage occurs to life and property by controlling the situation and restoring communal harmony and peace.
