Jammu, Nov 10: A social activist from here has filed a petition before National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) seeking directions for the Jammu and Kashmir government for providing security to Panchayat members in wake of militants' threat to them.
 Raman Sharma, who is also a Right to Information (RTI) activist, said that he has approached the NHRC with a petition, "praying that after the open threat from Hizbul (Mujahideen) chief Syed Salahuddin, the Panchayat members of the state along with their family members are under high pressure and worried about their life."
