Then decision of PIO appears correct. (atleast appearing from given facts).
However it needs to be checked whether IO has followed proper procedure before invoking 3rd party clause.

The information has been rightly denied by the PIO. However, the Court can summon, at its discretion, call for the requisite information from the Head of the Office, but not the PIO.

The RTI Act stipulates in section 23 ' bar of jurisdiction of Courts' so far as the RTI Act is concerned. In such circumstances whether the action of the Court is correct since the information was denied as it relates to third party?
