In the instant appeal, the citizen has requested the record of the recruitment in Islamabad Boys Scouts Association. The Respondent instead of addressing the information request of the Appellant in its response dated August 26, 2022 has raised objections on his membership. Moreover, if any Writ Petition filed by the appellant is pending before any court against the Respondent, it does not bar him from exercising his fundamental right of Access to Information.
Appeal is allowed. Secretary, Islamabad Boy Scouts Associations is directed to provide complete information mentioned in para 2 of this Order to the Appellant, at the earliest but not later than 7 working days of the receipt of this Order, with intimation to this office.
