BENGALURU: The voluminous Right to Information (RTI) replies found with `420' Bhaskar, a go-between and fixer in the Lokayukta corruption case, revealed the involvement of several government officials, especially of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike. Meanwhile, the Lokayukta court on Friday remanded Lokayukta Justice Y Bhaskar Rao's son Y Ashwin to judicial custody till August 17.

"We were lucky to lay our hands on several documents which may help in questioning Bhaskar and determine how they were used to target officials to extort money from both tainted and clean persons.We also raided Ashwin's flat in Kukatpalli on the outskirts of Hyderabad and are examining papers seized there.Preliminary inspection also revealed documents relating to cases booked by the Lokayukta which revealed the extent of corruption within the Lokayukta," said a source in the SIT.

Police said Krishna would get information about engineers working with PWD and BBMP by filing Right to Information Act (RTI) queries, and pass it on to Ashwin who would then make extortion calls. Read more at;

      As I can see from the Act the principal aim of the act seems to motivate people and encouraging them to have information about the working of the system to see that it works efficiently.
      But it is said that poverty alleviation is also the aim of this act. I cannot forsee how that can be achieved?
      Any views?

      I beleive in this last 50 years or even more after we have got our independence this is the first time that our Government has sincerely thought of nailing the corrupt officials and has brought this ACT. No doubt the corrupt officials and people in power on the other hand are thinking out ways and means as to how to dilute this act so as not to pass the information regarding the wrong things they do or might do. One of this was not to give information regarding what ever has been dealt on corresponding side before an order has been passed. I beleive we all Government officers who are non corrupt, have nothing to fear from this act and should whole heartedly support this act and make it more stronger.
