Info can be given once probe is over, charge sheet filed: Mah CIC

Once a case is made and investigations completed, charge sheet and other relevant material filed in the court, then that information can be given to an applicant under the Right to Information Act (RTI), 2005. This was ruled by chief information commissioner Dr Suresh Joshi. CIC to challenge Delhi high court order in Supreme Court Joshi passed the order on June 11 following an application filed by former director general of police (housing) Rahul Gopal. Gopal had sought information under RTI through his application in March 2009 from the state home department, which was denied to him.

He also sought the reason that lead to the application Indian Telegraph Act 1885 (of occurrence of public emergency and safety interest) due to which the tapping was conducted.
