A few days ago the media reported yet another gruesome instance of murder of an RTI user in Mumbai. The Mumbai Police are said to have arrested two suspects including an ex-Corporator during their investigation of this incident. Scores of RTI users have lost their lives for seeking information of public interest. Hundreds have been attacked, assaulted, harassed and threatened.
A report sent out by the CHRI RTI team addressing this issue is below. We have also attached a document and an earlier submission from 2013 that show the scope of attacks on RTI activists in the country.
