  • RTI Experts

    Yes.

    The Police Authorities are public authorities and the RTI Act is applicable to them.

    Depending on the limited information that you have, under section 2(f) of the RTI Act, you could obtain documents and records relating to the daily diary entry of the concerned police station and the officers concerned who would have dealt with your case.

    You could also obtain the file noting numbers and the documents under that file pertaining to your case, in case there is one maintained by the authorities
