Case No. CIC/SS/A/2011/000350

Name of Appellant : Sh. Ritesh Suri

(The Appellant was present)

Name of Respondent : Addl. Commissioner of Police,

Special Police Unit for Women and
Children, New Delhi.

Represented by:

Malhan, Inspector.

ORDER

Sh. Ritesh Suri, the appellant, vide his RTI application dated 13.12.2010
requested the respondent CPIO for a copy of the complaint registered by his wife
Smt. Lekha Chhabra against him in the Crime Against Women Cell, Nanakpura,
New Delhi. The information requested was denied to the appellant by the CPIO
u/s 8(1)(e) and also u/s 11 of the RTI Act on the grounds that complainant has
not given her consent to give a copy of the complaint to the Appellant. Aggrieved
with the reply the appellant filed an appeal before the First Appellate Authority
(FAA). The FAA, vide its order dated 19.1.2011 upheld the decision of the PIO.
The Commission in a number of its decisions has held that the person
complained against has right to know the nature of complaint made against him,
particularly when the respondent has taken action on the complaint filed with
them. The Complainant too has filed the complaint before the Crime Against
Women Cell with the expectation that they would take necessary action, as
per law, on her complaint. Such documents can hardly be treated as
personal information supplied by third party. The Commission therefore directs
the Respondent CPIO to provide a copy of the complaint filed by his wife to the
appellant, free of cost, within 7 days of receipt of this order.
With these directions the matter is disposed of on the part of the
Commission.
