Re: [rti_india] Brother joins PIL on RTI activist murder


May I suggest that all RTI activitistsjoin together to  move the Hon'ble High Court to make the RTI's as interested Party and for this the RTI's need to form an association. 
Hope my suggestion shall be given to thought.

Brother joins PIL on RTI activist murder




Mumbai: Slain RTI activist Satish Shetty's brother Sandip Shetty on Thursday said he wanted to intervene in the PIL being heard by the Bombay High Court in connection with his murder.
   Satish, a Talegaon-based Right to Information (RTI) activist and an anti-corruption crusader who had unearthed several land scams in the area, was murdered in January by unidentified men while on a morning walk.

The high court took suo motu notice of the incident, and initiated a PIL. Sandip,
Satish's younger brother, was on Thursday present in the court. His lawyer said he wanted to intervene in the PIL, as he had a lot of documents pertaining to Satish's RTI queries.

 "He has no confidence in the police," Sandip's lawyer said. The division bench said it would allow him to become a party. The Maharashtra government on Thursday informed the court that five of the six suspects have been arrested, and the police have sought magistrate's permission to subject them to lie-detector test.
