Till the Government gives full legal rights to the whistle blowers, the present trial court procedures should be used to resolve the cases of human rights violation said Uttarakhand Law Commission chairman Justice (retd) Rajesh Tandon. He was presiding as chief guest at oath taking ceremony of national working committee of Human Rights Protection Society at Gurukul Kangri Vishwavidyalaya here on Sunday.
