This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

All documents concerned with California civil rights activist Kartar Dhillon (April 30, 1915 - June 15, 2008). Her obituary is available at http://www.smdailyjournal.com/articles/obituaries/2008-07-01/kartar-dhillon/94276.html

Please search the Central Index, cross-reference and ELSUR documents.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Dear Anirvan Chatterjee,

The FBI has received your Freedom of Information Act/Privacy (FOIPA) request and it will be forwarded to Initial Processing for review. Your request will be processed under the provisions of FOIPA and a response will be mailed to you at a later date.

Please note, as a courtesy to you I verified the information regarding Ms. Dhillon using a verified source. However, a website link in itself does not satisfy the proof of death requirement, and in all future requests you will need to provide the actual documentation. Otherwise, the request will be returned to you for further action.

Requests for fee waivers and expedited processing will be addressed once your request has been assigned an FOIPA request number. You will receive written notification of the FBI’s decision.

Information regarding the Freedom of Information Act/Privacy is available at http://www.fbi.gov/ or http://www.fbi.gov/foia/. If you require additional assistance please contact the Public Information Officer.

Please forward all future inquires to FOIPARequest@ic.fbi.gov.

Thank you,

Marcia M. Morgan
