Lokpal Report on Criminal Act of Sanjib Marik , former DG of Police is lost in Home Dept., exposed through RTI.
On allegations made against Sri Sanjib Marik, IPS, the State Govt. has handed the case to Lokpal to enquire into it and submit the report. Accordingly, the Lokpal made a thorough enquiry against Sanjib Marik and submitted the report. But the State Govt. neither did take any action against Sri Marik following Lokpal Report nor disclosed the report in public domain.
RTI Application dated 5.10.15 was submitted to Home Department, Govt. of Odisha seeking the copy of the report. On 6.11.15, the PIO has responded that the copy of the report is not traceable after through search of available records in the Home ( IPS) Dept. The PIO has also stated that the said information can not be supplied uder sub-section 4 & 5 of section 15 of Lokpal & Lokayukta Act, 1995.
So, it is concluded that either the Lokpal Report has been stolen or deliberately kept in secret.
