Rti activist gets security




CHANDIGARH - 15 February 2013




Today the order came from the District Administration for providing the Security to the RTI Activist Sucha Singh of Jasraur Village of Amritsar District. He is being provided with a gun man at the state cost. I will post the copy of the order as soon as I get it. The case was made out for thretening Sucha Singh for asking for information. The JCAS Society (Jasraur Coop Agri Service Society) threthend him of dire consequenses and its President and Secretary went to the fiels of Sucha Singh with gun to deter him from asking the information. Complaints were lodged with Information Commission, DC DM, SDM, Police Commissioner, SSP, DSP, SHO, Human Rights Commission, Registrar/JR/DR/AR of Coop. Societies, Punjab, Chief Minister and Chief Secretary in view of the threat preception as well as in the light of the Igh Court Judgement in CWP-832 of 2010 as well as the Policy of the Punjab Government for providing protection to the Whistle Blowere and RTI Activists. He had to face a tough time in facing the Officers, who also sided with the culprits and threatened with FIRs against the Sucha Singh. However, Sucha Singhstood his ground and coxed the authorities to go ahead. Untimately the aithorities relented in the wake of Notices received from SIC, SHRC, and to move the High Court, and security has been offerred. RTIFED (RTI Activist Federation) took up his case with all these authorities and releblessly fought for him, resulting in the Provision of Security. This is the First case in the state or through out India, where a RTI Activist has been provided with the Security.


The credit for this Security goes to Advocate H.C. Adv Hc Arora who had instrumental in getting the High Court Directions as well as the State Government Policy for Providing Protection to Whistle Blowers as well as RTI Activists, inthe stae of Punjab Haryana as well as Chandigarh. THANK YOU ADVOCATE H.C. ARORA..


This case will set an example for the other such cases as well as a deterent to the arogant Public Authorities as well as the Public Information Officers.
