Official Secrets Act era gone; disclose Netaji records: CIC tells Govt

Why keep records secret if Bose had died in 1945?: Mission Netaji

Disclosure of Top Secret records will lead to chaos in country: MHA

Matter is of a serious national importance: Central Information Commission

In a major boost for the freedom of information movement in India, the full Bench of Central Information Commission (CIC) has ruled that the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) must declassify records relating to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's reported death.

The CIC set aside the MHA's contention that disclosure "may lead to a serious law and order problem in the country, especially in West Bengal" as "facile hypothesis" which "seems to be a position repeated without any discernable application of mind".

The Bench comprising Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah and Information Commissioners Padma Balasubramanian, AN Tiwari, Dr OP Kejariwal and Prof MM Ansari hammered in that the matter was of "wide public concern and therefore of national importance" and rejected the Home Ministry's "considered view" to not to "supply the documents relating to various Commissions of Inquiry on disappearance of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose in public interest".

The documents had been sought in June last year when Sayantan Dasgupta of Mission Netaji requested the MHA to "make available authenticated copies of documents used as exhibits by the Shah Nawaz Khan and GD Khosla panels".

The idea was to better the understanding about the conclusion drawn by these panels since the Government held their findings true even after receiving the latest report of Justice MK Mukherjee, a top criminal law expert and former judge of the Supreme Court of India. Full Story

Okay, a glimmer of hope for Mission Netaji, which all right-thinking citizens should be proud of.

However, when I look at
I don't see any hope for Mr. Vijaykumar and his brave wife.

Please stop by the website to express your solidarity with the couple.
