Never.  I have not come across even such instance of punishment even to CPIO.  IC can only recommend and it is left to authorities to follow laid down procedure for inquiry, and they know how to protect their officials.  There is no incidence on record asking by IC as to why punishment was imposed and calling for such records.

However the law states that who ever assists PIO, they are treated as PIOs under RTI Act.  If SPIO gets such order for punishment, those who ever assisted must accept their accountability for their roles in such actions in assisting PIOs
