Odisha Human Rights Commission (OHRC) has ordered a probe into the self-immolation of Gunanidhi Bisoi in Cuttack on Friday.

Taking cognizance of the case suo motu, the Commission has called for a report from the Director General of Police. The DGP has been asked to carry out a probe in this connection and submit report before the next hearing.

Worth mentioning, Bisoi had set himself on fire after pouring petrol on him, being harassed by the Kisan Nagar police. As his grievance relating to a land dispute was not redressed by the police for months together despite his frequent approach to police, he took the extreme decision and committed self-sacrifice on Wednesday, before the police station.
