Sealed-cover doctrine: SC ensuring secrecy or excluding Indians from public debate?

Satya Prasoon joins Alok Prasanna Kumar, Ishkaran Bhandari and Apurva Vishwanath in answering the question: ‘Does the Supreme Court’s sealed-cover doctrine ensure secrecy or does it exclude Indians from public debate?’

 

Prasoon argues that the sealed-cover doctrine stands in conflict with a citizen’s right to know.
