Friday February 21, 2014 2:25 PM, IANS

It is a matter of shame that even after over 60 years of Independence, India has 3,40,000 manual scavengers, National Human Rights Commission chairman K.G. Balakrishnan said Friday.

"Total 3,40,000 people are said to be manual scavengers in a free India. It is utterly shameful for this country," Balakrishnan said at the National Conference on Manual Scavenging and Sanitation here.
