I have filed RTI seeking information about the criminal case details that is investigated (completed) by the PIO but PIO denied information by invoking the section 8(1)(h) of RTI Act. Also PIO failed to disclose the reasons, as per section 4(1)(d) for invoking the section 8(1)(h).
PIO says that he has no obligation to give reasons on non-applicability of citations relied by the RTI applicant.
Also PIO says that he has no obligation to give reference of citation that PIO relied upon while denying information.
Can I file writ petition under Article 226 and 227 to get the details of the criminal case investigation being my rights that are under Article 19, 21 and 22 are affected by the action of PIO and while filing the Writ petition I will use RTI reply of PIO as evidence that show denial of information to the accused of the criminal case.
