RTI applicant seeks copies of registers in Priyanka-Nalini meeting issue
The controversy over the meeting between Priyanka Vadra, daughter of Rajiv Gandhi, and Nalini, life convict in the former Prime Minister's assassination case, at the special prison for women in Vellore has taken a new turn with an applicant, under the Right to Information Act, seeking copies of the main gate registers in which Ms. Vadra's visit could have been recorded. Initially, in her reply to the applicant — D. Rajkumar of Anna Nagar in Chennai — prison Superintendent Rajasoundari said no person visited Nalini either on March 14 or 19. Following this, Mr. Rajkumar moved the State Information Commission seeking an enquiry against the jail official for providing false information.
