The file carrying details of the purported inquiry into home minister Sushilkumar Shinde's gaffe disclosing names of the Bhandara minor rape victims in the Rajya Sabha is "not traceable".

After maintaining silence on an RTI application for nearly six months, the ministry has admitted before the Central Information Commission that the file concerned was untraceable in the ministry.

Information Commissioner Vijai Sharma issued a show cause notice to the ministry to explain reasons for not responding to the application in the mandatory period.

Sharma said that it was that the home ministry had contravened the legal provisions of maintaining the record.
