National Human Rights Commission on Wednesday issued a notice to Manipur Government over alleged misuse of funds in the Integrated Child Development Scheme in the state.

The rights panel has given six weeks’ time to the state government to submit a report in this regard.

According to an NHRC statement, the commission has issued a notice to the Chief Secretary of Manipur after receiving a complaint from an NGO ‘Wide Angle Social Development Organisation’ based in Manipur which alleged that most ’anganwadis’ (child and mother care) centres are non-functional and poorly equipped in the state.

“Reportedly, the employees have not been paid their dues last year inspite of the Ministry of Women and Child Development having released the funds,” the NHRC statement said.
