  • RTI Experts

    Yes.

    The police authorities are public authorities and the RTI Act is applicable to it.

    Under Section 2(f) of RTI Act, you could obtain documents and records pertaining to a FIR. In simple words, information has to be disclosed untill and unless it has been shown that disclosure of the information would impede the process of investigation or apprehension or prosecution of offenders.

    In some cases, part of the information can also be disclosed by adopting the doctrine of severability under Section 10 of RTI Act.
