Lucknow – The Uttar Pradesh government has appointed late Friday retired Justice Tarun Chaterjee as the new chairman of the state Human Rights Commission, an official said.

68-year-old Chaterjee was the chief justice at the Allahabad High Court in 2003 and retired as a Supreme Court judge in 2010.

The name of Chaterjee was cleared by a high-powered committee comprising Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, leader of opposition in both houses Naseemuddin Siddiqui and Swamy Prasad Maurya.

Justice U.K.Dhawan and Asha Tiwari have been named as members of the commission, an official release said.
