Patna/New Delhi: Bihar government has rather been secretive on the Forbesganj Police firing and the response of the media and civil society, barring few, has not been very encouraging either. One reason being very little ‘authentic’ information is available. Some of it is sketchy.

BeyondHeadlines has taken it upon itself to unravel information from several concerned apartments. Investigative Editor of BH, Afroz Alam Sahil, today filed applications in several state and Central departments under Right to Information (RTI) primarily wanting to know what actions they have so far taken in the said incident.

BH has filed RTI applications to the National Human Rights Commission, Bihar State Human Rights Commission, Minority Welfare Dept. (Govt. of Bihar), National Commission for Minorities, (Govt. of India), National Commission for Women, (Govt. of India), National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, Home Department, (Govt. of Bihar), Bihar Industrial Area Development Authority (BIADA), and Araria District Magistrate Office.

Our questions mainly concern the action taken by above mentioned departments so far, to make available any reports if they prepared.

Questions to the home department and DM office also include request for copies of autopsy reports of the deceased.

Another application to BIADA also specifically asks how much land were given on lease to the  Auro Sundaram International in Araria and details of their correspondence.

Under RTI Act 2005 concerned government department is required to furnish information within 30 days.
