New Delhi, December 11
The Delhi HC today stayed the Central Information Commission (CIC) order directing the IAF to provide information regarding Special Flight Returns (SRF)-II, which contains details of the PM’s entourage on his foreign trips.
Justice Navin Chawla said the information sought by the RTI applicant with regard to details of the ministry or department officials, who accompanied the PM on a trip cannot be disclosed, but there was no harm in providing details of the number of passengers on flights.
The court also issued a notice to the RTI applicant, Commodore (retd) Lokesh K Batra, and sought his stand on the IAF’s appeal against the CIC’s July 8 direction.
The court listed the matter for further hearing on April 12, 2021. — PTI
