I have been falsely implicated in a case by police for removing illegal banners. They have remanded me under Sec506(II) Attempt to murder on complaint from ruling party men. Though the FIR is available online I want copy of other documents like complaint letter, confession letter in which they have forcibly made me sign. I also want the CCTV footage of the police station at that particular date and time.
I have already filed RTI in this regard and have had the information denied under Article 8 1 (h) saying the case is under investigation. Is this correct? Will First appeal be of any help?
The right to development in a way has been strengthened by the Right to Information Act. This act, enacted by our government, is one of the strongest such legislations in the world. It is also an essential tool of democratic participation, through which the boundaries of the â€œrights approachâ€ to development can be further extended. It brings in transparency and accountability into the development process. The combination of the National Rural Employment Guarantee and the RTI Acts provides a very potent base for expanding the rights of citizens vis-Ã -vis the state in ensuring equity and social justice. This is particularly relevant for the poor and vulnerable.
