Rafale Petitioners Guilty Of Leakage Of Sensitive Information: Centre Submits In SC, Seeks Removal From Records

Even though the Central Government maintains secrecy, the petitioners and the deponent of the affidavit of the Review Petition are guilty of leakage of sensitive information, which offends the terms of the agreements. Additionally, those who have conspired in this leakage are guilty of penal offences under the Indian Penal Code including theft by unauthorized photocopying and leakage of sensitive official documents affecting National Security. These matters are now a subject of an internal enquiry which has commenced on 28.02.2019, and it is currently in progress. In particular, it is of utmost concern to the Central Government to find out where the leakage took place so that in future the sanctity of decision making process in governance is maintained".
