'Give 26/11 records to Kamte'

The state chief information commissioner Suresh Joshi has ordered the Mumbai police to provide Vinita Kamte, widow of additional commissioner of police Ashok Kamte who was killed during the 26/11 attacks, with the details she has sought within 30 days.
The order issued on October 15 said that after receiving the copies, if Kamte is not satisfied with the facts, she can complain to the additional chief secretary (home).
In March, Kamte had filed an application under the Right To Information Act asking for the audio and written transcripts of the calls between her husband and the police control rooms and the call logs of the main control room. However, her first application was rejected on the grounds that investigations were on. She then filed an appeal and was allowed to inspect the copies. Kamte said, "The police should have given us the original copies to inspect, but they didn't. So I filed another appeal in August. I did not want to do all of this. All I want is to know the truth."
