Can`t give details of illegal assets cases: CBI
New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Sunday refused to make public information about disproportionate assets cases against bureaucrats, ministers and government officials, saying the Right to Information (RTI) Act did not apply to it.
"The government of India...has placed the Central Bureau of Investigation at Serial Number 23 of the second schedule of the RTI Act. This act is not applicable to the CBI," a CBI official said.
The CBI, through a government notice on June 09, was put in the category of organisations listed in the second schedule of the Section 24 of the RTI Act, which also includes intelligence and security agencies.
The CBI said this in response to four RTI applications filed by activist Subhas Agrawal, who sought details of corruption cases involving officials and ministers.
