    RTI Activist Kamlesh Shah attacked twice on Monday

    Nagpur: Right to Information (RTI) provides transparency in structure and helps in control corruption. However the RTI Act doesn’t keep the identity of applicant anonymous and hence the identity is revealed as soon as the RTI is filed. As a result, conscientious and well meaning citizens are attached for acting rightly.

    In an audacious act, two goons allegedly attached RTI Activist Kamlesh Shah, twice on Monday. First incident happened in front of railway station when two persons approached him on a bike and kicked his two-wheeler. However the other incident happened near his home where the same goons attacked him again. Shah has approached Lakadganj police station to file a complaint.

    “After the first interaction with goons on Railway Bridge, somehow I suspected their further moves. Thus refusing Central Avenue road I took Mominpura road and approached Gandhibagh square. However when I reached Telephone exchange square, I saw same goons who was waiting for me near my resident. They again attached me however I somehow managed to escaped from their clutches” reveled Kamlesh Shah to Nagpur Today.

    The activist also revealed that, he has been through such circumstances back in 2016 when a pulser biker rammed his bike into his.

    He also told NT that, he had filed last RTI against Kukreja builders seeking details of infinity project. So they might be the prime suspect behind this act.

    Toram Harishkumar Naidu, RTI activist expressed his anguish on such incident saying “I’m planning to write letters right from city’s commissioner to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking answers to this quest.

    RTI act is designed to reveal corruption however it has always failed when it comes to implementation due to casual approach of administration. As per customized rules the RTI should have its respond within a month. However the administration which operates under the supervision of Information Commissioner somehow manages to delay the information with lame excuses.”

    An investigation will be carried out and CCTV footages at the spot will be scrutinized, assured Lakadganj police.
