The Asian Age - - Nation -

New Delhi, March 30: How Jar­nail Singh Bhin­dran­wale has been de­scribed in gov­ern­ment records — re­li­gious preacher, crim­i­nal, ter­ror­ist or other, the CIC has asked the home min­istry to send this RTI query to the Pun­jab gov­ern­ment for pro­vid­ing re­ply.

It was one of the ques­tions posed by an RTI ap­pli­cant who had also sought to know from the home min­istry the num­ber of FIRs pend­ing against Bhin­dran­wale, al­leged to be the mas­cot of the Khal­is­tan move­ment in which thou­sands of peo­ple were killed, when he was killed by se­cu­rity forces in oper­a­tion Blue Star in 1984.

I n f o r m a t i o n C o m m i s s i o n e r Yashovard­han Azad said law and or­der be­ing a state sub­ject, the in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing cases regis­tered against Jar­nail Singh Bhin­drawale must be held by gov­ern­ment of Pun­jab.
