The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued a notice to the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports over reports of ill-treatment meted out to deaf and mute players.

The notice is based on a media report that said that passports of Indian players selected to participate in the Asia-Pacific Deaf Games were seized by authorities in Chinese Taipei due to non-payment of hotel bills.

The NHRC has sought a report from the ministry within four weeks.

It also said the incident, if true, indicates gross negligence on the part of the ministry and a clear violation of human rights of the disabled players.

According to reports, the players also had a difficult time in Delhi when they allegedly spent a night on a footpath outside a gurdwara while waiting to get visas.
