Government of should take the lead by by following up on the unanimous resolution adopted by the Assembly demanding a credible probe involving international judges, MP D Raja said.

A US-sponsored resolution on the issue is expected to be taken up at the UNHRC tomorrow.

He said the report of the Rights Commissioner has come out with the truth about what happened in the conflict that ended in 2009 as it has acknowledged that war crimes took place.
