Give details of probe into complaints by ex-official: CIC to RAW
The Central Information Commission has directed the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) to reveal details of any inquiry into complaints by a former official, who has alleged harassment, corruption and other irregularities in the intelligence agency's functioning. The CIC order comes at a time when the agency is facing flak for its lack of action in alerting relevant authorities about the Mumbai attack. Hearing a plea by former RAW official Major General V K Singh, the Commission said, "From the perusal of the documents, we were unable to find what action has been taken." Singh is facing a probe by CBI for allegedly revealing vital details about RAW's working in his book, `India's External Intelligence -- Secrets of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW)', in violation of the Officials Secrets Act.
