The mission was organised on 1–3 November 2016 and members of the mission were senior jurists and eminent personalities comprising Justice (retd.) H. Suresh, Former Director General of Police, K. Subramanian IPS and Dr. Miratun Nahar. The Fact Finding mission recorded testimonies and interacted with relevant stakeholders.
