Identity of air passengers cannot be disclosed: CIC

The list of passengers on a flight cannot be given under the RTI Act as no public interest is served in its disclosure, the Central Information Commission has held while rejecting the plea of an ex-Navy official accused of murdering a woman two years ago. Currently lodged in Mumbai's Arthur Road Prison, Manish Thakur is accused of shooting his girlfriend 24-year-old Kaushambi Layek, an employee of Tata Consultancy Service, whose body was found from the honeymoon suite of a hotel on May 14, 2007, where both had allegedly checked-in. Police allege that Thakur had escaped to Goa after committing the crime. He was arrested from INS Hansa in Goa where he was undergoing advanced training and was produced before a Mumbai court on May 18.
