Ahmedabad, Jan 2: Days after she was denied information under RTI, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's wife Jashodaben Modi has filed a fresh RTI application with Mehsana police station.
In her RTI reply, she has sought details of the security cover which has been given to her.
According to an Indian Express report, in her appeal before the first appellate authority of Mehsana district police, Jashodaben has stated that she has moved the application after being "aggrieved" by the reply which she got few days back.
Recently, an RTI has been denied by the Mehsana police on the ground that her queries were related to local intelligence bureau (LIB) which is exempted under RTI Act.
"The information sought by her (Jashodaben) was related to the local intelligence bureau (LIB), therefore it could not have been given to her and we have sent a written communication about this development to her," Superintendent of Police J R Mothaliya of Mehsana district said.
"The information sought by you (Jashodaben Modi) was related with the LIB and as per the Gujarat Home Department's resolution number SB.1/1020018203/GOI/62 dated November 25, LIB has been exempted from RTI Act and therefore the asked information cannot be given to you," said the letter written by the public information officer and Mehsana Deputy Superintendent of Police Bhakti Thakar to her.
In her RTI application filed before Mehsana Police on November 24, Jashodaben had sought several documents related to the security cover given to her as per the protocol, including the certified copy of actual order passed by government about providing security.
Jashodaben, a retired school teacher, lives with her brother
Ashok Modi at Unjha town of Mehsana district. After Narendra Modi
was sworn-in as Prime Minister on May 26, she has been given
security by Mehsana police.
Mehsana police has deployed ten policemen, including armed guards, who work in two shifts.
