Justice (retired) Raghubir Dash has resigned from the post of Odisha Human Rights Commission

Bhubaneswar:12/2/23: Justice (retired) Raghubir Dash has resigned from the post of Odisha Human Rights Commission (OHRC). His resignation comes in the wake of the Odisha government appointing Justice (retired) Satrughana Pujahari as OHRC Chairman.

In his resignation letter addressed to the Odisha Governor, Justice Raghubir Dash wrote, “The newly appointed chairperson of OHRC is the right person with the ability to raise the reputation of the institution to the next level by his tireless efforts to protect the interests of the victims of human rights violations.”

The letter further states, “However, my conscience, as well as a sense of self-respect, dissuades me from continuing to hold the office of a member of the OHRC under the chairperson-designate who, as a judge of the High Court of Orissa, was junior to me.”

Recently, the state government appointed Justice Satrughana Pujahari, a former judge of Orissa High Court, as the new OHRC Chairman and advocate Asim Amitabh Dash as its member.
