HC issues notice to state govt, ACB, BMTF

The Karnataka High Court on Friday issued notices to the state government, Anti-Corruption Bureau and Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force in a matter regarding the uploading of first information reports.

A division bench of acting Chief Justice H G Ramesh and Justice P S Dinesh Kumar was hearing a public interest litigation, seeking uploading of all the FIRs lodged in police stations on their official websites within 24 hours of the report being filed.

According to the petitioner, the Supreme Court had passed a judgement in 2016, directing the central and state governments to upload copies of FIRs on their websites within 24 hours.

The petition stated that this order has been complied with by the Karnataka Police department. However, the Anti-Corruption Bureau and the Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force have not complied with this direction and are thereby violating the law of the land, the petitioner stated.

The petitioner stated that he had approached the respective officials and was assured of action, but nothing was done in this regard.

The matter was adjourned to December 12.
