     Hon’ble Chairman, Rajya Sabha and Vice President of India Shri
Mohammad Hamid Ansari has appointed Shri Ashwani Kumar, MP (Rajya
Sabha) as Chairman of the Select Committee of Rajya Sabha on ‘The
Prevention and Torture Bill, 2010’.  The proposed law seeks to ensure

a law can be traced to the necessity of protecting the dignity and
human rights of all citizens and to align India’s legal regime with
the principles recognized in the aforesaid UN Convention.  Members of
