The court will hear the matter again on April 12
The Delhi High Court on Friday stayed the Central Information Commission (CIC) order directing the Indian Air Force (IAF) to provide information regarding Special Flight Returns-II, which contains details of the Prime Minister's entourage on his foreign trips.

Justice Navin Chawla said the information sought by the RTI applicant with regard to details of the ministry or department officials who accompanied the PM on a trip cannot be disclosed, but there was no harm in providing details of the number of passengers on flights.  The court will hear the matter again on April 12.
