The division bench of five judges had formed a three member committee comprising of a member to be appointed by Chairperson of the National Human Rights Commission, a member to be nominated by the State Human Rights Commission and Member Secretary, State Legal Services Authority.

The Calcutta High Court had also instructed that all the people who are absconding should be able to return home by June 4 and the next hearing of the case will be also on June 4.
