    Depends

    You could address the RTI application to the crime records bureau of the concerned state as it is a public authority and the RTI Act is applicable to it.

    However, this would depend on the method under which the particular state's authority maintains its records.

    Under section 2(f), you could obtain certified copies of the relevant documents and records regarding details of any pending cases, the nature of such cases, details of punishment or acquittal, if any and other relevant details.
