Law minister Kiren Rijiju said intelligence agency officials work in a secret manner for the nation, and they would "think twice" in future if their reports are made public.

Law Minister Kiren Rijiju on Tuesday said it was a "matter of grave concern" that certain portions of sensitive reports of the Intelligence Bureau and Research and Analysis Wing were put in public domain by the Supreme Court Collegium.

He said intelligence agency officials work in a secret manner for the nation, and they would "think twice" in future if their reports are made public.
He was responding to questions on some recent Supreme Court Collegium resolutions, which contained potions of IB and RAW reports on certain names recommended by the top court for appointment as high court judges, being made public last week.
The Collegium had reiterated the names to the government earlier this month while rejecting intelligence inputs.
"Putting the sensitive or secret reports of RAW and IB in public domain is a matter of grave concern on which I will react at an appropriate time," Rijiju told reporters at a Law Ministry event here.
Speaking to CNBC-TV18, Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave said, a middle ground can be achieved only if Prime Minister intervenes and stops his law minister, vice-president and speaker from attacking the judiciary.
“The only middle ground in this tussle would be if the Prime Minister intervenes and stops the members of his party including the law minister, vice-president and speaker from attacking the judiciary the way they are doing. Prime Ministers silence on the matter tells the country that perhaps this attack is with his blessings,” Dave said.
