Blackmail in rti

This is a case regarding grant of freedom fighter pension. There were some who forged their names in the original urdu warrents( issued by the erstwhile Nizam state), and tried to sneak in their way into the pension register. This became rampant, complains went upto Honourable Supreme Court. SC set up an one Judge(retired HC Judge) committee to investigate. Comittee checked through the entire gamut of evidence and cancelled almost half the pensions.

The contentious issue was the original warrant. There were quite a few making rounds with forged names which were latter attested by govt officials: which in the final analysis of the committee turned out to be an unacceptable evidence.

There is an array of applications of the disgruntled ones. This of course is their right and can be answered by giving them access to the original documents in the office hours, in view of the large body of documents.

There is an attempt to pressurise officials by lodging a false police complain saying that the office has lost the original warrent. The official documents say that the original was never submitted, the cancelled pension was sanctioned based on the circumstantial evidence.

How to counter the false complain. The police has filed it as a complaint without any substance.

How to establish that the RTI activist is trying to use false complaint to pressurise the officials?

PS: I have high regard for RTI, a gem of democratic right. I am concerned that the unscrupulous ones should not highjack what has been obtained after great struggle.
