Sohrab case accused file RTI on jail med facilities
Suspended deputy superintendent of police NK Amin and sub-inspector NV Chauhan accused in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter and Kauserbi killing cases had filed an application under Right to Information (RTI) Act against Sabarmati Central Jail authorities to know who exactly is authorised to take decisions in case of a medical emergency and what facilities were required to be provided to prisoners. Prison authorities replied to all questions and said that the application was a fallout of a power struggle between IPS and non-IPS officials lodged in the prison. According to officials, the duo wanted to investigate favouritism by the prison staff. Central jail officials said the duo had filed an application last month seeking answers to questions like who takes the final decision whether a patient should be transferred to Civil Hospital or any other competent hospital in the city and who has the right to refuse it.
