Editorial : Justice  Delayed & Denied

Government Job Maxim

a.       “Two punch one lunch ( work ) ?”

b.      “Government  Job is God’s work. So officials are waiting for god to do his own work !!!”

Judges , Police and  other public servants  responsible  for  delay in justice under one pretext or the other  ( while they shamelessly draw lakhs of rupees pay & perks from public exchequer for themselves ) are totally responsible for :

1.       Destruction of evidences , records , witnesses.

2.       Time bar of case.

3.       For giving free reigns to criminals to  continue with crimes.

4.       Concerned Judges , Police &  other government officials fully liable to pay  compensation from their personal pockets   to the aggrieved  towards  losses due to delayed justice.

 

Hoping  duty consciousness will dawn on our public servants.

After 8 Years, Judges To Get A Huge Pay Hike - Close To 300 Per Cent

 

The judges of the Supreme Court and High Court will soon receive a huge pay hike. The Chief Justice of India TS Thakur has written to the government, forwarding a judges' committee report which recommended a hike of over 300% including pension and perks.

Finance minister Arun Jaitley has agreed with most of the recommendations, sources said. A cabinet note is being prepared, which after formal clearance, will go to parliament.


The salaries of the judges were last hiked eight years ago. But the implementation of the new hike can take time as the hikes of lawmakers - current and former - the President and the Vice-President are still pending.

At present, the Chief Justice of India gets a salary of 
Rs. 1 lakh. Against the judges' committee recommendation to hike his salary by Rs. 3 lakh, the government has agreed to hike it by Rs. 2.8 lakh.

For Supreme Court judges, the present salary is Rs. 90,000. The judges' committee recommended a pay hike of Rs. 2.8 lakh and the government has agreed to an increase of Rs. 2.5 lakh.

The salary of High Court judges will increase from Rs. 80,000 to Rs. 2.25 lakh against the recommendation of Rs. 2.5 lakh.

The government has not agreed to an increase of house rent allowance, since a committee is already looking into the issue following the 7th pay commission recommendations.

Under the pay commission recommendations, they get a steep hike in funds for furnishing their houses. It ranges from Rs. 10 lakh for the Chief Justice of India to 6 lakh for judges of High Court and 1,500 free phone calls. The judges will continue to get free water up to 36 kilo liters and free power of 10,000 units.

The pensions of the judges will be hiked as well. The Chief Justice of India will get Rs. 16,80,000 plus dearness allowance, the Supreme Court judges Rs. 15 lakh plus dearness allowance and High Court judges Rs. 13.5 lakh plus dearness allowance a year. Their gratuity would be doubled to Rs. 20 lakh.

Versus 

Honourable  Chief Justice of India    & Others 

....Respondents 



PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA. 


To ,
Hon'ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship's Companion
Justices of the Supreme Court of India.

 

The Humble petition of the   Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :
1. Facts of the case:
a. Every human being , every Indian citizen  are equal  and guaranteed  equitable justice  as  their  human right and  Constitutional right.

b. In india  mafia of powers that be  and government  ensure  that  cases drag on for years , so that  poor litigant  either dies before  judgement day  or  opts out in  the middle.  Due to this delaying tactics  ,  many poor people  rather suffer injustice  instead of seeking justice in courts.  Mafia  indirectly forces  them  to  keep away from litigation.

c. Due to  occupation induced health problems  my health is deteriorating day by day , some of the  PILs concerning national security , public welfare   I  have  filed are  two decades old , still no justice in sight. Judges   not even  admitted the cases.

d. Actual working hours , working days for judges  are  less in india. Too many case adjournments ,  less number of judges , too many  holidays for  judges like  summer vacation , winter vacation , working hours less than 8 hours per day , etc.

e. Judges  work  less  but  enjoy  5 star  pay & perks at public expense.

f. Due  to  denial of justice  common people suffer injustice for more time or till  their death. Say  some falsely implicated persons  suffer in jail for years till their acquittal by  courts , some petty criminals  whose  crime  attracts  one year imprisonment   suffers in jail for  ten years. Because they are not well connected , cann’t afford  hi fi  advocates , bail fees.

g. Due  to  lethargic  judiciary  , some land  acquisition cases    drag on for years   land  looser  suffers  also  the   project  cost   escalates  by  hundreds  thousands  of  crores  of  rupees.

h. The lethargic  Judiciary  in  India  itself  is the biggest violator  of  common man’s  human rights , fundamental rights. It is the culprit responsible for  loss of thousands of crores of rupees to public exchequer   due  to  project  cost  escalations.

i. when  a common  man’s  human rights , human rights   is  violated  in  the  form  of  delaying  tactics  by court  of  law  , judiciary  , the presiding judge becomes a criminal  and liable to pay damages to the aggrieved.

j. The central government  and  state government  yearly  spend  thousands of  crores of rupees  unnecessarily  like  purchasing  new cars  for  ministers , renovation , interior  decorations  of  minister’s  bungalows ,  foreign jaunts , etc. These are  all not  priority one  spending. Out  of  these  spending   how many  more  judges  could be appointed , paid salaries.

k. when  compared to  project  cost  escalations  of  thousands of  crores  of rupees  caused  due  to  case delays  , is it not wise  on the part of government to  appoint  requisite number of judges  with  additional budget burden of  few  crores  of  rupees.

l. Both  central  and  state governments  are  the biggest  litigants  in the country.

m. Government is manipulating  judicial process by  denying finance  to  appoint more judges , to create more court infrastructures.

n. We common people are  imposed  with time limits  to mandatorily comply with,  in our interactions with other public , with government authorities , with courts itself. For our failures we common people are penalized.

0. Paradoxically , there is no mandatory  time limits  for judges , public servants to finish  specific works concerning public. In most of the cases they adopt delaying tactics  , deny justice still they  are not penalized and  don’t  pay any compensation to the aggrieved public.

p. Due  to delaying tactics  of judges , many  anti national crimes , terror attacks took place  and still continuing  which could have been  well averted in time  if judges  took timely action. For helping  mafia  by  the way of delayed  justice , mafia rewards some of those judges with post retirement postings , promotions , site allotments , etc.

q. The Judiciary has the right , authority , power to order  government  to  allocate finance for  appointing judges , setting up court  infrastructure. If the  government  gives   ruse  of  no  money  in it’s account , courts can  definitely monitor  spending of government , cut down on  waste , non-priority spending of government , divert such money for  appointment of judges , court infrastructure development. No  need  for  CJI  to  weep before prime minister.  Judges  themselves  never  consider  the sufferings  of  weeping  litigants.  It shows the weakness  of  CJI and  a shame to our nation.



2. Question(s) of Law:

Is it right for  judges  to deny  justice . is it right on the part of judges to delay justice  under various ruses to common man , violate their human rights , fundamental rights.

3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , Prosecution of  judges  responsible for  case delays.


4. Averment:

Judiciary biased against poor: Justice Saldanha

 

 

Only culprits from certain sections of the society are given death sentence in India while the rich and influential are spared the gallows, observed former high court judge Justice M F Saldanha. 

Addressing law students of JSS Law College at an orientation programme here on Monday, he rued that the justice system is biased against socio-economically backward classes. "There have been instances where many rich and popular personalities committed similar crimes but went scot-free," he noted. There are certain loopholes in the legal system. Academicians, legal parishioners and law students must work towards bridging these gaps and bringing about the desired change in the system, he added, calling upon budding lawyers to follow ethics in their professional and personal lives. 

College principal K S Suresh said the country has nearly 4 crore cases pending before the court, due to delay in settling them. Though there are nearly 13,500 courts and two dozen high courts, at this rate, it will take about 100 years to clear the pending cases, he said while stressing on the need to deliver speedy justice. MLA Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri said society has immense faith in the judicial system and called upon the legal fraternity to live up to people's expectations

Pre-Trial Detention

By Amnety International

The Issue

 

India has one of the highest pre-trial detainee populations in the world. Nearly two-thirds of the country’s prisoners are ‘undertrials’. These include men and women presumed to be innocent in the eyes of the law but who are in jail for months and even years waiting for the law to take its course. Some have even been detained for periods longer than what a formal conviction would have brought.

 

 

In 2014, there were 4,18,536 prisoners in various jails in India, of which over 2.8 lakh – more than 67% - were undertrials, according to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) Prison Statistics –India 2014. NCRB all India figures reveal that 47.8% of undertrials are between the age group of 18 to 30 years.

 

‘Taking Injustice Personally’ and Section 436A Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC)

 

The overarching objective of Amnesty International India’s campaign ‘Taking Injustice Personally’ is to work towards reducing excessive pretrial detention for undertrials, by addressing barriers, both systemic and operational, which exacerbate the problem of prolonged detention in jails. In many cases, such detention can be unlawful and in violation of various international and domestic laws applicable to undertrials.

 

Cognizant of the fact that there are numerous ways in which the problem of excessive pretrial detention can be addressed, we decided to work towards ensuring ‘effective implementation of S. 436A Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC)’ as one way to achieve the project objective.

 

AI India has been working on this issue since 2013, with relevant state agencies and the judiciary in seeking accurate application of this law. This section allows for the release of an undertrial, on personal bond, – it is hence particularly useful for undertrials who cannot afford to pay bail.

 

 

During the course of our research on this issue, AI India identified four key issues which hinder application of this law. Most of these issues also contribute substantially to the problem of excessive pretrial detention. These are:

 

1. Lack of proper prison and court record management

 

2. Lack of effective legal aid services

 

3. Delays in court productions due to lack of adequate police escorts and video-conferencing facilities

 

4. Non-functional Undertrial Review Committees (UTRC)

 

Coupled with these reasons are a lack of awareness and understanding about application of this law.

 

For a detailed insight into these reasons, please read our briefing - AI India findings and recommendations.

 

In August-September 2014, the government expressed an intent to push for implementation of S. 436A CrPC - to decongest prisons and uphold the rights of undertrials.

 

This was soon followed by a Supreme Court order in the Bhim Singh vs. Union of India case, where the Court directed district judges across all states to visit jails within their jurisdiction and identify and release undertrials eligible for release under S. 436A CrPC. Despite at least seven hearings over the last one year and nearly 10 months since the expiry of the deadline set by the Supreme Court in September 2014, the order has not been complied with. Also, there is no indication from the Central Government on the number of under trials released pursuant to this order.

 

All these initiatives can contribute to the effective implementation of this law. However, unless the systemic and operational failings highlighted above are not rectified, they are likely to have limited long-term and sustainable impact.

 

Consequences of excessive undertrial detention and aggravating factors

 

 

 

1. Overcrowding in jails.

 

Excessive undertrial detention not only adversely affects the lives of prisoners and their families, but also leads to overcrowding in prisons, which puts undue pressure on the entire criminal justice system machinery. Prisons in India have an average occupancy rate of 117.4%. Some of the most overcrowded jails in India include those situated in Dadra and Nagar Haveli (33.17%) Chhattisgarh (258.9%) and Delhi (221.6%).

 

This means, for example, in Chhattisgarh, every cell meant to house 100 inmates in actuality houses 259 inmates.

 

Needless to say, overcrowded jails lead to extremely poor conditions of detention, aggravating the lack of adequate sanitation, food and health care in jails. The conditions in jails are conducive for the transmission of diseases including skin infections, tuberculosis, malaria and other communicable diseases.

 

Overcrowding also adds to the burden on jail officials who have to manage the security and movement of a large number of undertrials within the jail premises. Congested jails often tend to be chaotic and unsupervised. Inmates are at a heightened risk of physical and psychological abuse and ill-treatment and even torture.

 

2. Inadequate legal representation.

 

Most undertrials in India have low levels of education and are therefore unlikely to be aware of their legal rights. According to NCRB 2013 figures, over 71% of the undertrial population is educated below class ten.

 

Undertrials, thus, are among the most vulnerable sections of the prison population – they are less able to contribute to the preparation of their defence than defendants who remain at liberty. The quality of communication between the undertrial and his/her lawyer remains largely poor with the former often dependent (due to restricted access to telephones, etc.) on the latter to communicate with them. The meeting rooms where undertrials meet their lawyers are mostly crowded and guarded by jail officials, making the environment unconducive for uninhibited and effective meetings.

 

Undertrials may also be unable to engage a private lawyer due to a lack of resources. They are then compelled to seek free legal aid from the state, which can be inadequate and ineffective.

 

3. Loss of familial ties, livelihood and adverse impact on family.

 

Pretrial detention, particularly when it is indefinite, subjects undertrials to severe emotional stress due to separation from their family, friends and community. Furthermore, uncertainty regarding the duration of detention coupled with anxieties related to unsuitable and sometimes dangerous prison conditions, can contribute to depression and suicidal tendencies.

 

Undertrials detained for long periods of time lose their jobs, which could cause further economic hardship to them and their families.

 

4. Loss to the state exchequer

 

Apart from violating numerous rights of an individual, excessive undertrial detention also leads to wasting of public resources.

 

According to the NCRB, the average annual expenditure per inmate is Rs. 24,768.

 

The amount spent by the state on overcrowded jails can, instead, be better utilized on activities which promote public security, such as increasing the number of jail and police personnel, investing in their training and infrastructural facilities etc.

 

Amnesty International India’s work with Government of Karnataka

 

Amnesty International India (AI India) seeks to work with the Government of Karnataka to reduce the number of undertrials who are in detention in jails across the state. This will help decrease overcrowding, ensure that undertrials eligible to be released under law are not held in jail, and make Karnataka’s criminal justice system a role model for the rest of the country.

 

Towards this objective, immediate and effective implementation of Sec. 436A CrPC has been stressed by both the Central and State Government vide the:

 

a. Central Directive No. V-13013/70/2012-IS (VI), dated 17th January 2013 (enclosed A1), issued by Union Ministry of Home Affairs (CS Division) and

 

b. Government Order No HD 51 PRA 2012, dated 12th November 2013 (enclosed A2), issued by the Karnataka Home Department

 

We have been working on this issue since March 2013, and have met several people including the Home Minister, the Law Minister, Principal Secretary (Home), ADGP (Prisons), former Supreme Court and High Court judges, members of the Legal Aid community, activists, lawyers, public prosecutors, and former and current police officials.

 

We have also conducted an interactive session at the Karnataka Judicial Academy with the Principal District Judges of all districts in Karnataka. The aim was to, firstly, understand the systemic factors and challenges that contribute to excessive and prolonged pretrial detention in Karnataka; and secondly to explore creative ways of reducing pretrial detention.

 

Justice Delayed is Justice Denied

By  Pradip Kumar Das

 

Before I start I would like to highlight something about the origin of the quoted line "Justice delayed is justice denied." This line was written by William Ewart Gladstone (1809 - 1898). He was one of the greatest of English Politicians and also former British Prime Minister.

 

The 15th August 1947 is a red-letter day to the Indians. India got freedom on this day at midnight. The last ship carrying British soldiers left India for England. Struggle for independence was thus over on this day. But, to speak the truth, it was only the beginning of a struggle -- the struggle to live as an independent nation and to establish a democracy based on the ideas of justice, liberty, equality and fraternity. Keeping these ideals in mind the Preamble to the Indian constitution, interalia, declares that --

"We the people of India having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a sovereign, socialist, secular, Democratic Republic and to secure to all its citizens -- Justice, -- social, economic and political .... .But sixty years after Independence, we have endless laws but not enough justice. The founding fathers of our constitution placed "Justice" at the highest pedestal and our preamble to the constitution placed justice higher that the other features like liberty, equality and fraternity. People use to go to the judiciary in quest of justice.

 

In the words of Dr. Cyrus Das2 "Justice is a consumer product and must therefore meet the test of confidence, reliability and dependability like any other product if it is to survive market scrutiny. It exists for the citizenry, 'at whose service only the system of justice must work'. Judicial responsibility, accountability and independence are in every sense inseparable. They are, and must be, -- embodied in the institution of the judiciary." Credibility of the judiciary is at stake now due to mounting arrears of cases, delays in disposal and also high cost of obtaining justice. The denial of justice through delay is the biggest mockery of law. It does not amount to mere mockery, the delay in fact kills the entire fabric of justice delivery system of the country.

 

'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice -- everywhere'3:

There was a time when it was an age of barbarism. Civilization begins to progress through many ups and downs. Today we have reached, so to speak, the culmination of civilization. Justice and the judiciary is the inevitable result of that civilization. But the present day society is a victim to the dilatoriness of the process of justice. People unfortunately fall victim to injustice. They suffer day after day. A Major portions of the Indian people are very poor and illiterate as well. They come to the court to get justice by paying their hard-earned money. They pay to advocates, Law clerks day after day, and wait for justice. They pay for court fees and vokalatnama and wait for justice. Month after month, year after year passes away- they wait for justice.

 

They become gradually destitute by selling their everything to meet the fees of advocates, law clerks and other expenses and still wait for justice. Sometimes they pass away from the world and never get justice. Dilly-dally policy in the judiciary makes them deprived of having justice. Thus justice remains untouched by many victims in the Indian judicial system. The more they do not get relief, the more they lose their faith in judiciary. As a result, people gradually will take law in their own hand, which will lead a social anarchism. There will be deep darkness of frustration and futility, -- nihilism and cynicism all around. The whole society will be in jeopardy, as the entire judicial system will collapse under its own weight. In the words of K. G. Balakrishnan, Hon'ble Chief Justice of India, ".... the peoples faith in the judicial system will begin to wane, because justice that is delayed is forgotten, excluded and finally discharged ...4."

 

The Real Scenario:

There are about 10,000 courts in India .Out of these, one Supreme Court, 21 High Courts, 3150 District Courts, 4861 Munsif and 1st class Magistrate courts and 1964 2nd class Magistrate courts are there. Besides, there are many tribunals. There are 4.04 crores cases pending in different district courts across the country while there is a backlog of 34 lacks cases in State High Courts. 1,66,77,657 criminal cases are pending before Magisterial courts and 72,37,495 civil cases are pending in various subordinate courts. As many as 70 percent of these cases are -litigations from villagers. Again some of these cases are as long as 25 to 30 years old. The longer a case runs, the more expensive it becomes to pursue. Within the High Courts, maximum number of cases are pending in Calcutta, Allahabad, Chennai, Mumbai and in Kerala High court. Out of the pending cases in these High Courts, 88 percent are civil cases and only 12 percent are criminal cases. Maximum number of pending cases in lower judiciary are in U.P., Gujrat, Maharashtra, M.P., W.B. and in Karnataka.

 

Primary causes behind Law's Delays:

a) The hopelessly inadequate number of judges and also courts in the country is undoubtedly one of the major reasons for such delay. Successive Governments have not only failed to increase the numerical strength of judges and courts but have also been slack in filling up of vacancies. In Mumbai, for example, 50 metropolitan magistrate courts serve a population of more than 12 million of people. At present the country's 21 High Courts have a combined strength of 725 judges; but there are 128 vacancies left to fill up. The High courts are handling an overwhelming 34,00,000 cases and the shortage of judges is only delaying the legal process. It is not out of place here to mention that there is only 10 - 12 judges per 10 lacks of people in India while in U.S.A., it is 60 - 70 judges per 10 lacks of people, 40 - 50 judges in U.K., even in Pakistan the rate is much higher than that of India.

 

b) If the inadequate number of judges is one reason behind delay in judicial process another reason is the incompetence and inefficiency of judges. There are some law colleges in India where students do not have to attend classes, teachers need not deliver lectures and syllabus need not be followed. These colleges have become factory of distribution of law degree. A degree is the sole requirement to become a member of the Bar and a degree coupled with a few years standing at the Bar is the only requirement for joining the Bench (in some cases that is also not required). As a result the quality of judges is far from satisfactory to give us the desired level of -- competence, efficiency and effectiveness. Good judgment prevents multiplicity of proceedings. Good advice by lawyers followed by good assistance prevents unnecessary litigation and wastage of time.

 

(c) The habit of taking adjournment by the lawyers is another reason behind delay. Some lawyers take adjournment unnecessarily to harass opposite parties and to extract money from clients. Some of them causes delay by continuing meaningless argument day after day. In Government cases, adjournment are freely sought to file affidavit because the offices of the Advocate General, the Attorney General and Solicitors General to the Central and State Governments are inadequately staffed and equipped. However, the habit of taking adjournment by lawyers day after day, poses a serious threat to the entire judiciary, which only can be equated with the disease of cancer.

 

(d) Endless amendment of laws is another reason behind delay. Most of Indian laws were amended time and again. As a result, it takes time to understand and explain the new provisions of law. It kills valuable time of court. These endless amendments make the legal system slow and confusing. Our propensity for enacting laws is really a problem. The Income Tax Act, for example, has been amended over 4000 times since it came into force in 1961. According to Late Mr. Nani A. Palkhivala, the tragedy of India is the tragedy of wastage of national time, energy and manpower for grappling with torrential countless amendments.

 

(e) Absence of work culture in the courts is another reason behind the delayed -- justice. Every work of courts is carried out very slowly. Attraction to the holidays makes the work of judiciary dilatory and procrastinating. Number of -- holidays, especially in higher judiciary, are so vast that one can easily count the number of working days. This adds to the number of mountainous pending cases in the court.

 

Some facts:

There are several cases where -- judgements were delivered by courts after a long time. In Safdar Hasmi murder case, for example, who was killed by political opponents, the criminals were punished after a long 15 years. In Tanduri murder case, the accused a Delhi Congress Leader Susil Sarma was convicted with death sentence after long 8 years 6 months. He murdered Nayna Sahani and destroyed evidence by burning her body within a Delhi based hotel. In Model Jesicalal Murder case and Madhumita Sarma Murder case, accused persons were punished after a long legal battle. The Supreme Court of India is not even immune to delays. It's much acclaimed -- judgment in the D.K. Basu case in 1996, known for its directives aimed to prevent custodial torture, took ten years to be reached5. If a judgment takes this long time in the Supreme Court what can be expected from courts of lesser authority?

 

Various Committees:

For speedy trial and quick -- disposal of cases several committees were formed by the Government from time to time. In 1924 a committee was formed under the chairmanship of Justice Rankin. In 1949 Justice S.R. Das Committee, in 1972 Justice J.C. Shaha committee, in 1986 Satish Chandra Committee and in 1990 Justice V.S. Mallimath committee. But the situation has not so changed from 1926 to 2007. The law commission in its 120th report submitted in 1987 -- examined the problem of understaffing of judiciary and recommended 50 judges per million of population instead of the present number 10.5. The inadequate number of judges is a major reason behind delay in disposal of cases.

 

Thus, the main cause of judicial procrastination is not in the hand of judiciary but in the hand of executive and administrative wings. Justice R. P. Sethi in Anil Rai vs. State of Bihar, Criminal appeal of 6th August, 2001], [observed that in a country like ours where people consider judges second only to God, effort should be made to strengthen that belief of the common man. His Lordship was of the view that time has come for the judiciary to assert itself to preserve its stature, respect and regard for the rule of law. He observed "for the fault of few", the glorious and glittering name of the judiciary cannot be permitted to be made ugly6. Former Attorney General of India Mr. Soli Sorabjee in a lecture at the Nehru Center in London lamented the laws delays and said the criminal justice system in India was on the verge of collapse on this reason. He also observed that, "Justice delayed will not only be justice denied, it will be the Rule of law destroyed"7. More than 60 percent of pending court cases in India are the result of -- "State" action or inaction because some official of the central or State Government or agency has failed to act justly -- towards a citizen or a group of citizen. Lately, Hon'ble Supreme Court has delivered guidelines for quick disposal of cases.

 

The arrears committee headed by Justice V. S. Mallimath (1990) -- identified various causes of accumulation of arrears of cases in the High Courts. Some of the principal causes are :

(i) Litigation explosion;

(ii) Accumulation of first appeal;

(iii) Inadequacy of staff attached to the High Court;

(iv) Inordinate concentration of work in the hands of some members of the Bar'

(v) Lack of punctuality among judges;

(vi) Granting of unnecessary adjournments;

(vii) Indiscriminate closure of Courts;

(viii) Indiscriminate resort to writ jurisdiction;

(ix) Inadequacy of classification and granting of cases;

(x) Inordinate delay in the supply of certified copies of judgments and orders etc.

 

Some suggestions and conclusion:

All the above points, should be taken care of. Proper steps should be taken immediately to solve the above problems. Adjournments must not be given on flimsy and frivolous grounds and beyond certain numbers. To speed up the process of justice, computerization of the whole country's judicial system is the need of the hour. The judges must set examples for themselves and others by maintaining a decent degree of punctuality and dutifulness.

 

However, hoping against hope, Hon'ble Supreme Court has already taken some steps to avoid law's delay. E-filing has been introduced in the Supreme Court on 2nd October, 2006. It is now possible for any advocate - on -record or any other petitioner to file his matter through internet from anywhere in the world. Computerization has been introduced in some of the High Courts in India. In this era of globalization and rapid technological developments -- various avenues of laws are opening day by day. Justice and judiciary have an important role to play in this – globalize world. If we do not care it -- that we may at our own risk

 

However, at a cursory glance to the reasons behind laws delay and the steps that have already been taken in various quarters after a long time, the author is of the view that many things still remain to do before long. The real picture is not very satisfactory and encouraging. No effective changes are made particularly in the lower judiciary to prevent laws delays. That is why recently Mr. Fali S. Nariman, an eminent Indian jurist and former Rajya Sabha member, when delivered the first Nani A. Palkhiwala Memorial Lecture, expressed with grief about the laws delays that - "Injustice is easy to bear, what stings is justice".8

 

Before I conclude I would like to opine with the former Attorney General of India Mr. Soli Sorabjee that -- justice delayed will not only be justice denied, it will also destroy the Rule of law,- a basic feature of our Constitution. However, let us gird up the loins to protect and preserve it.

It is the duty of Supreme Court of India to Protect , Guard the constitutional rights , fundamental rights of every Indian citizen . Since 25 years  I am  appealing  to SCI  about  issues concerning public welfare , national security , etc and as a result suffering injustices , my constitutional rights , human rights are repeatedly violated  but SCI is mum even when repeated appeals were made to it. Paradoxically , after these appeals for justice , I have suffered more injustices , attempts on my life were made ,  physically assaulted , livelihood  / jobs were  denied , news publication closed , press accreditation denied ,  received threatening  calls , blank calls, even to date  rough elements follow us , rough elements  scout  near home at mid night. Does  not these indicate some ties between rough elements & SCI  Judges ?

 

Public Interest Litigation is an appeal  for justice  to the courts , to redress  the injustices meted out to  the public.  Individual cases of injustices  pertaining to an individual are not covered under PIL, however  an individual an activist  who  is fighting for public causes  suffering  injustices  as a result of   his struggle  ,caused by powers that be to silence him  can club  his individual case under the public causes  (PIL ) he is  appealing.

 

Nowadays people of questionable character , integrity  are being selected to public posts , end result is present day india.  In the following web sites I have shown  few actual cases of crimes by judges & police , just imagine what type of justice common man gets.

Traitors  in   Indian  Judiciary & Police

https://www.scribd.com/document/329980170/Traitors-in-Judiciary-Police

Crimes  by  Khaki

https://www.scribd.com/document/334590032/Crimes-by-Khaki  ,

Police show full bravery , courage , use  full might of law while acting against innocents , commoners. Even  takes suo motto action. Frequently crosses legal limits  while acting against commoners like 3rd degree torture , arrest / search  , seizure without warrant , arrest in mid night , etc . While they are supposed to take action against rich crooks , their own corrupt colleagues  no suo motto action , delayed action inspite of complaint  allowing time for rich crook to get anticipatory bail , no 3rd degree torture on him , no arrest , search , seizure without warrant. Where is the bravery , courage of police ?

Judges show their full wisdom , apply rigid law book while  judging cases of commoners , take suo motto action  where as  cases involving rich crooks comes before them inspite of repeated PILs they don’t consider it , let alone take suo motto action. Judges make far fetched interpretations of law , ultimately benefitting the rich crook. Where is the wisdom of Judges ?


I ,NAGARAJA.M.R. hereby do declare that information given above are true to the best of my knowledge & belief. If i am repeatedly called to police station or else where for the sake of investigations , the losses i do incurr as a result like loss of wages , transportation , job , etc must be borne by the government. prevoiusly the police / IB personnel repeatedly called me the complainant (sufferer of injustices) to police station for questioning , but never called the guilty culprits , rich crooks , criminals even once to police station for questioning , as the culprits are high & mighty . this type of one sided questioning must not be done by police or investigating agencies . if anything untoward happens to me or to my family members like loss of job , meeting with hit & run accidents , loss of lives , death due to improper medical care , etc , the jurisdictional police together with above mentioned accussed public servants will be responsible for it. Even if criminal nexus levels fake charges , police file fake cases against me or my dependents to silence me , this complaint is & will be effective.

Powers that  be , higher ups have referred all my previous cases to police although in most of the cases  police don’t  have jurisdiction over it.  It  sends  a subtle message by police force to  the  complainant  to keep silent . In the remaining cases  which are under their jurisdiction police  don’t act against higher ups , high & mighty. In such cases police lack  practical powers , their hands are tied although they  are  honest.  As a end result , police  have repeatedly called   me to police station  number of  times  ( have never called guilty  influential persons even once)  took  statement  from  me and closed  the files.

 

Hereby , I do make it clear  the statements made by me  in my original petitions , PILs , news papers  , etc  while I was in  a free & fair atmosphere  are  TRUE  , over rides , prevails over all the statements made by me before police  earlier and  which will be made by me  in future before police.

 

If I or my family members or my dependents are denied our fundamental rights , human rights , denied proper medical care for ourselves , If anything untoward happens to me or to my dependents or to my family members – In such case Chief Justice of India together with the jurisdictional revenue & police officials will be responsible for it , in such case the government of india is liable to pay Rs. TWO crore as compensation to survivors of my family. if my whole family is eliminated by the criminal nexus ,then that compensation money must be donated to Indian Army Welfare Fund. Afterwards , the money must be recovered by GOI as land arrears from the salary , pension , property , etc of guilty police officials , Judges , public servants & Constitutional functionaries.

Cross Exam Judges & Police

Editorial :  Cross  Examination of Judges & Police

Honourable CJI , Union Home Secretary ,  Chief Justices , DG & IG  of Police of all States , UTs  FIRST   Answer   Questions

 Our  whole hearted respects  to  honest  few  working  in  judiciary , police & public service. Our  comments  are  only directed  towards  corrupt  judges  , corrupt police , corrupt  public servants and the term “JUDGE” includes all public officials performing judicial , quasi judicial functions.  

Judges , Police are  NOT answering our  following RTI Questions NOR admitting our PILs since years. Both  of  them  are  denying  information   leading  to  crimes , covering up crimes.  Thereby , both of them  are aiding anti nationals , criminals.  Who will prosecute these guilty judges & police ?

 Powers that be , cabinet ministers , judges are simply  sending my petitions  to  police , to ensure closure of  files. In most of the cases police does not have the  power  nor  jurisdiction  and in the remaining cases   they need  written legal sanction from  president of india  or  governor or  from their  ministry  head   to  legally  prosecute  high  &  mighty  but  legal  sanctions are not given.  Ultimate  aim of  the  judges , ministers , police  is  to  close  the  file  , to bury  the  TRUTH.  They  transfer the case to  police ,  so  that  under the threat of  khaki power   complainant  becomes  silent.

I have  been summoned  to  police  station  tens  of  times  without   legal  summons  to  give  statements , by  the way  I have  lost  money , daily wages , transportation cost. No compensation for that  were paid to me. Rich , mighty  criminals were not even summoned once why ?   Police  question  commoners   for  hours  in some  cases  even  apply  3rd  degree   TORTURE  on common  people   to get  answers. Why  police  are   NOT  questioning   rich  , mighty  criminals ,  criminals  within the police force & judiciary , why  NOT  police  are  applying  3rd  degree TORTURE  on  those  CRIMINAL  POLICE  , JUDGEs  to elicit  truth  in national interest.

In  courts of  justice  , common people  are  subjected  to  rigorous  questioning  by  prosecution , defense lawyers and  judges. In  the  same  way  when  you  judges &  police themselves  are in the dock , why  can not  you be questioned  to elicit truth in national interest. Are  YOU  Judges &  Police  special , exceptions , above  LAW ?

  My  petitions  have  been transferred  tens  of times  to police  whether  they have  jurisdiction over it , whether they have legal  sanction  to enquire it or  NOT. All the files  were closed  by  recording  my statement  without  any  enquiry  of  high , mighty criminals.  We  need  JUSTICE  in  all  the  cases , before  summoning me to police  station  summon  high , mighty  criminals  to  police  station  FIRST , before  questioning  me  YOU  Judges  and  Police  ANSWER  our  questions   FIRST ,  act  on  our  PILs  FIRST.  We  the public  want to know  under  who’s  behest  you  JUDGEs , POLICE  are  burying  the  truth , cases , files ,  our   appeals.

  Jai Hind. Vande Mataram.

 "Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts.  They will fight among themselves for power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed." Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the  forewarning of  Late Winston Churchill  has been proved right by  some of our  criminal , corrupt people’s representatives , police , public servants &  Judges.  Some of the below  mentioned  judges  fall among the category of churchill’s men –  Rogues  , Rascals & Freebooters.

 Eventhough  the information is readily available with SCI , information was denied citing unavailability.  If at all information is not truly available , why didn’t the   CPIO  TRANSFER rti  application to concerned departments of SCI  , Ministry of Law , Justice , Respective High Courts , etc.

Does not court administarative officer  posess  SERVICE REECORDS of each employee including judges. If not on what basis they give promotions , transfers , salary , etc to judges ? The person  who posess SR  can give infor mation about guilty judges. Why CPIO not asking that person to share infor mation ?

If a commonman is alleged of a petty crime he is immediately arrested , put behind bars. Police spend thousands of rupees for investigation to  prosecute  that petty criminal. Judges spend hours to hear that case & prepare judgements running into tens of pages sometimes even over & above thousand pages. Fine . When the very same police & judge themselves committ grave crimes detrimental to national security , integrity , etc , no arrests , no prosecution only cover-up , WHY ? Are Judges & Police above Law ? Is  Judge’s  MAFIA  at play ?

The  action  of  CPIO  SCI  amounts  to cover up  of judges & their crimes. Thereby  , CPIO  is also committing  a crime. With respect  to previous RTI Appeals  also  CPIO & RTI  First Appellate Authority  SCI  have repeatedly  committed  crimes  by  covering up  judges & their crimes.  Billions of indians  are barely sustaining on a single piece meal a day , we lower middle class people toiling hard to earn a few hundreds of rupees but still paying tax. Is it not shame to them  / shame to JUDGEs that they  draw  pay  &  perks  amounting to lakhs of rupees from our money , from taxes paid by us still not do their  constitutional duties properly.

 GIVE  WHAT  ACTION HAS BEEN  TAKEN AGAINST  THE  GUILTY JUDGES   MENTIONED  IN THE BELOW MENTIONED WEB SITES & FOLLOWING  ARTICLES.

 We salute honest few in public service ,  Judiciary , police , parliament  & state  legislative assemblies. our whole hearted respects to them.  HEREBY , I DO HUMBLY REQUEST YOU TO GIVE ME WRITTEN STATEMENTS / ANSWERS TO THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS – WHICH IN ITSELF ( ie answers ) ARE THE INFORMATION SOUGHT BY ME. HERE WITH I AM SEEKING NOT THE OPINIONS ABOUT SOME HYPOTHETICAL ISSUES , BUT YOUR OFFICIAL STAND , LEGAL STAND ON ISSUES WHICH ARE OF FREQUENT OCCURRENCE WHICH ARE VIOLATING PEOPLE’S FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & HUMAN RIGHTS. WE DO HAVE HIGHEST RESPECTS FOR JUDICIARY & ALL PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS , THIS IS AN APPEAL FOR TRUTH , INFORMATION SO THAT TO APPREHEND CORRUPT FEW IN PUBLIC SERVICE, WHO ARE AIDING & ABETTING TERRORISM , UNDERWORLD & CRIMINALS.  I  HAVE SHOWN IN DETAIL WITH LIVE , ACTUAL CASES , EXAMPLES , HOW INDIAN LEGAL SYSTEM IS MANIPULATED BY CRIMINALS  WITHIN JUDICIARY , POLICE , PROSECUTION , ETC.

 Hereby ,  we  do request  CPIO  O/O  Honourable Chief Justice of India  , Supreme Court  of India , New Delhi  to answer the following questions in public interest , for safeguarding national security ,  National unity & integrity & to legally apprehend anti-nationals , criminals within the judiciary & police. Judges are not superior human beings , some of them have even became judges through devious means other than merit , integrity. Judges  are public servants drawing salary & perks from public exchequer  and accountable to public as any other  common man  is.

Please give following  information  :

Main  A :

1.    Please give me The address  of salary disbursing officer in supreme court of india. Salary disbursing officer will be maintaining service records  of all employees of supreme court of india including judges. These records are used for disciplinary action , promotion , transfer of judges. If not within SCI , please give the address of the  outside public  official who maintains  service records of supreme court  judges and kindly compile  information from him and give it to me  orelse  transfer my RTI application to him.

2.    Please give me the list of serving as well as retired supreme court judges with allegations against them and the action taken thereof. Reasons for taking action / criminal prosecution  or not taking action.

3.    Please give me the list of serving as well as retired  high  court judges with allegations against them and the action taken thereof. Reasons for taking action / criminal prosecution  or not taking action.

4.    Please give me the list of serving as well as retired  district & taluk  court judges with allegations against them and the action taken thereof. Reasons for taking action / criminal prosecution  or not taking action.

5.    Some of the high courts are demanding higher RTI application fees  than stipulated by law. Eventhough  requisite fees  has been paid  before transfer of RTI application to high courts. Please give me the details of action taken by supreme court of india  against erring high courts.

6.    Give me the List of petitions  with date  made by Shri . Nagaraja Mysore Raghupathi alias Nagaraja M R  TO SUPREME COURT OF INDIA THROUGH POST , THROUGH E-MAIL & THROUGH   website  of  DPG / DARPG.  Action taken or not taken with reasons thereof with respect to each petition.

7.    Please give me list of actions , follow up actions taken by supreme  court of india , to safe guard the  HUMAN RIGHTS & FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS of  Nagaraja M R editor of SOS e Clarion of Dalit  & SOS e Voice for justice. He repeatedly  appealed to SCI  highlighting  violations of his human rights & fundamental rights. After appealing to SCI only  editor Nagaraja M R suffered more injustices , attempts on his life , etc  , may  be JUDGE’s MAFIA  is in deal with outside MAFIA. Police are helpless & practically don’t have  power to question supreme court judges & other VVIPs. Did SCI constitute SCI monitored enquiry committee  with full legal authority to look into the issue.  

8.    Judges preach too much & practice less. They give  lectures , judgements   running into hundreds  of pages  eliciting legality, moral virtues , humanity , etc.  But cover up information leading to crimes / accountability of judges.  The judges  committee  like a mafia deals it within  without subjecting the accussed judge to public scrutiny & public trial. It is almost similar to a  whore / bitch  giving a lecture on virginity  to women.  To refresh your memory  , Please  go through following websites  to  know about facts , actual cases of  crimes by judges. Please give us information  regarding action taken or not taken with reasons there of  with respect to each case mentioned in the  following websites:

12.  Please give me the list of action taken against  by supreme court of india  against  CPIO &  PIO  of supreme court of india  , who repeatedly failed to give  me information . thereby , CPIO & PIO are covering up crimes of guilty judges , violating RTI Act & violating human rights / fundamental rights of editor Nagaraja M R together with public.

"Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts.  They will fight among themselves for power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed." Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the  forewarning of  Late Winston Churchill  has been proved right by  some of our  criminal , corrupt people’s representatives , police , public servants &  Judges.  Some of the below  mentioned  judges  fall among the category of churchill’s men –  Rogues  , Rascals & Freebooters.

 Eventhough  the information is readily available with SCI , information was denied citing unavailability.  If at all information is not truly available , why didn’t the   CPIO  TRANSFER rti  application to concerned departments of SCI  , Ministry of Law , Justice , Respective High Courts , etc.

Does not court administarative officer  posess  SERVICE REECORDS of each employee including judges. If not on what basis they give promotions , transfers , salary , etc to judges ? The person  who posess SR  can give infor mation about guilty judges. Why CPIO not asking that person to share infor mation ?

If a commonman is alleged of a petty crime he is immediately arrested , put behind bars. Police spend thousands of rupees for investigation to  prosecute  that petty criminal. Judges spend hours to hear that case & prepare judgements running into tens of pages sometimes even over & above thousand pages. Fine . When the very same police & judge themselves committ grave crimes detrimental to national security , integrity , etc , no arrests , no prosecution only cover-up , WHY ? Are Judges & Police above Law ?

The  action  of  CPIO  SCI  amounts  to cover up  of judges & their crimes. Thereby  , CPIO  is also committing  a crime. With respect  to previous RTI Appeals  also  CPIO & RTI  First Appellate Authority  SCI  have repeatedly  committed  crimes  by  covering up  judges & their crimes.  Billions of indians  are barely sustaining on a single piece meal a day , we lower middle class people toiling hard to earn a few hundreds of rupees but still paying tax. Is it not shame to them  / shame to JUDGEs that they  draw  pay  &  perks  amounting to lakhs of rupees from our money , from taxes paid by us still not do their  constitutional duties properly.

 GIVE  WHAT  ACTION HAS BEEN  TAKEN AGAINST  THE  GUILTY JUDGES   MENTIONED  IN THE BELOW MENTIONED WEB SITES & FOLLOWING  ARTICLES.

 At the outset , we express  our whole hearted respects to the honest few  public servants in public service including judiciary. However, the corrupt in public service don’t deserve  respect as individuals – as they are  parasites in our legal system. Still we respect the chairs they occupy but not the corrupt individuals.

 All the following articles / issues , whole articles published in the weblinks mentioned below forms part of this appeal. The term “JUDGE”mentioned throught includes all public servants  discharging  judicial functions right from taluk magistrates , quasi-judicial officers to Chief Justice of India.

 Indian Legal / Judicial System is manipulated at various stages & is for sale. It is a SHAME. The persons who raise  their voice seeking justice  are silenced in many ways. The criminal nexus has already attempted to silence me in many ways . If anything untoward happens to me or to my family members , my dependents , Honourable Chief Justice of India together with jurisdictional police officer will be responsible  for it.

 Hereby, we do once again offer our conditional services to the honourable supreme court of India & other government authorities, in apprehending criminals including corrupt judges & police. Herewith  , we once  again  appeal to the honourable supreme court of India , to consider this as a PIL Appeal in public interest.

 The public servants & the government must be role models in law  abiding acts , for others to emulate & follow. if a student makes a mistake it is excusable & can be corrected by the teacherif the  teacher himself makes a mistake , all  his students will do the same mistake. if a thief steals , he can be caught  , legally punished & reformed . if a police himself commits crime , many thieves go scot- free under his patronage.  even if a police , public  servant commits a crime , he can be legally prosecuted & justice can be sought by the  aggrieved. just think , if a judge himself that too of apex court of the land itself commits crime - violations of RTI Act , constitutional  rights & human rights of public  and obstructs the public from  performing their constitutional fundamental duties , what happens ? it  gives a booster dose to the rich & mighty , those in power , criminals  in public service to committ more crimes. that is exactly what is  happenning in india. the educated public must raise to the occassion &  peacefully , democratically  must oppose this criminalisation of judiciary , public service. then alone , we can build a RAM RAJYA OF  MAHATMA GANDHI'S DREAM.

 

Kindly go through the following articles & provide justice by giving complete truthful information to us , by publicly answering the following questionnaire in an unambiguous  manner.

 The constitution of India has prescribed certain FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES to each citizens of India. It is the duty of every citizen to protect & uphold the dignity , honour of our democratic institutions , to 
protect our national integrity , to respect & protect the rights of our fellow citizens. No constitutional authority has  the right to obstruct the discharge of these duties by citizens of India. No legal  privileges of constitutional functionaries is superior over the  FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES OF CITIZEN'S OF INDIA.

We need rights to perform our duties. Constitution of India has guaranteed those rights as FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS to all citizens of India & by birth itself everyone of us has secured HUMAN RIGHTS as individuals. To express ourselves , we need information , data feed  back , to ascertain whether we are getting equal opportunity , whether  we are getting equitable justice , etc , we need information . so , 
basically Right To Information  is an inalienable part of our  fundamental rights & human rights. What RTI Act has done is fixed time  limit , responsibilities of public servants up to  certain extent. However the citizen's fundamental right & human right to seek  information extends far beyond the scope of RTI Act.

Hereby , we seek complete  truthful information from supreme court of India , with respect to my RTI application appeal. HEREBY , WE ARE  ONLY SEEKING ACCOUNTABILITY OF PUBLIC SERVANTS  IN PUBLIC INTEREST &  JUSTICE. Hereby ,  we request you to register this appeal as a PIL  petition & to ascertain the stand of apex court on various matters  raised in my RTI Application , in public interest & equitable justice.

 We salute honest few in public service ,  Judiciary , police , parliament  & state  legislative assemblies. our whole hearted respects to them.  HEREBY , I DO HUMBLY REQUEST YOU TO GIVE ME WRITTEN STATEMENTS / ANSWERS TO THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS – WHICH IN ITSELF ( ie answers ) ARE THE INFORMATION SOUGHT BY ME. HERE WITH I AM SEEKING NOT THE OPINIONS ABOUT SOME HYPOTHETICAL ISSUES , BUT YOUR OFFICIAL STAND , LEGAL STAND ON ISSUES WHICH ARE OF FREQUENT OCCURRENCE WHICH ARE VIOLATING PEOPLE’S FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & HUMAN RIGHTS. WE DO HAVE HIGHEST RESPECTS FOR JUDICIARY & ALL PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS , THIS IS AN APPEAL FOR TRUTH , INFORMATION SO THAT TO APPREHEND CORRUPT FEW IN PUBLIC SERVICE, WHO ARE AIDING & ABETTING TERRORISM , UNDERWORLD & CRIMINALS.  I  HAVE SHOWN IN DETAIL WITH LIVE , ACTUAL CASES , EXAMPLES , HOW INDIAN LEGAL SYSTEM IS MANIPULATED BY CRIMINALS  WITHIN JUDICIARY , POLICE , PROSECUTION , ETC.

 Hereby ,  we  do request  PIO O/O  Honourable Chief Justice of India  , PIO , O/O H.E.Honorable President of India , PIO O/O Honorable Speaker of Lok Sabha , PIO O/O Dy Chairman of Rajya Sabha , PIOs of  Karnataka Raj Bhawan , Karnataka CMO , Union Home Ministry GOI  and  DG & IG of Police of Government of Karnataka to answer the following questions in public interest , for safeguarding national security ,  National unity & integrity & to legally apprehend anti-nationals , criminals within the judiciary & police.

Main  A :

1.      What  action you have taken against judges involved in atrocities against women , casewise ? if not, why ?

2.      What action you have taken against judges involved in land scams , casewise ? if not , why ?

3.      I have shown with actual cases  how manipulation / fixing takes place , from  complaint filing to judicial pronouncement stage. Are the judges & police , above law ?

4.      I have numerous PILs , RTI appeals  before supreme court of india. But they were  not registered , not honoured , why ?

5.      To my  legal notice / show cause notice / damage payment notice to supreme court of india & chief justice of india , till date I have not received the reply , why ?

6.      Is it not the duty of supreme court of india to protect the life & liberty of all Indian citizens ?

7.      Is it not the failure of supreme court of india, when it failed to protect the life of  a complainant ?

8.      By negligence of their duties , are not supreme court judges  aiding & abetting  criminals , anti nationals & terrorists ?

9.      While crores of Indians are barely surviving  on a single piece meal a day , people dying due to starvation , supreme  court judges are getting salary & perks amounting to lakhs of rupees  from the same suffering public / public exchequer. Are not those  duty shirking judges  ashamed ?

10.   What action you have taken against judges involved in hushing up late prime minister rajiv Gandhi assassination  case ?

11.  Why the supreme court of india didn’t allow me to appear before it  in the said case of  late PM Rajiv Gandhi Assassination  Case ?

12.  Why  the supreme court of india didn’t protect my life , my job oppurtunities , my newspaper  from the wrath of criminal  nexus ?

13.  When  even cable TV  journalists , web journalists are getting PRESS / MEDIA accreditation , my web news papers , myself are not getting  PRESS accreditation since 9 years , why ?

14.  Are the supreme court  judges  hand in gloves with the criminal nexus ?

Main  B :

You have not taken appropriate action to my previous RTI requests , Numerous appeals for justice & police complaints. You have not replied to show-cause notice also. Your inaction has helped the criminals in manipulating & destroying evidences.

Your inaction / delay in performing your duties not only amounts to denial of information , but  amounts to violation of our fundamental & human rights , cover-up of crimes , aiding & abetting criminals . The criminal nexus tried to silence me in many ways. Is not these acts of your’s  a crime in itself ?

If your acts of crime cover-ups  , information / evidence cover-ups , aiding & abetting criminals , silencing a crusader  is just & legal. The same type of acts of crimes  performed by other citizens will also be legal ?

Main  C :

At the outset , we express our whole hearted respects to all constitutional institutions &  to the honest few in public service. Contempt of constitutional institutions , citizens of India is being made by the corrupt persons in constitutional positions themselves. This is an appeal to the honest few in public service , constitutional positions , to bring their corrupt colleagues to book.

1.                  does the action of MPs , MLAs taking money / receiving favors from vested interests , to formulate policy decisions , to raise questions in parliament / legislative bodies or to abstain from voting  legal ?

2.                  why transparent , fair investigation is not done in such cases ?

3.                  just remember , the  vulgar acts of Mr.Bora Babu Singh in state legislature & how some  MLAs   vulgarly behaved with Ms.Jayalalita  in state legislature , years ago. Are these type of vulgar actions by MPs & MLAs  legal ? does not these constitute contempt of the house by MPs & MLAs themselves ?

4.                  all the people’s representatives from panchayath member to president of India must read ABCD  Of Democracy  provide along with.since independence of India till date , MPs & MLAs are forcing projects on people against the wishes of people , formulating policies against the wishes of people. Are not such projects , government policies & Laws , undemocratic & illegal ?

5.                  is the election commission of India verifying the authenticity of affidavits submitted by electoral candidates ?

6.                  how many candidates have been caught so far for giving false affidavits ? are all the violators prosecuted?

7.                  are the MPs , MLAs submitting their wealth details on affidavits yearly to vigilance authorities ? defaulters , violators how many ?

8.                  what legal action taken against violators , defaulters , for giving false affidavits ?

9.                  who is checking the authenticity of those affidavits submitted by MPs , MLAs ?

10.              the agricultural incomes of some MPs , MLAs , their kih & kin raises even during the time of severe drought , floods , fall in prices of agricultural products , their companies register increase in turnover / profits even during recession , the trusts / NGOs set up by them receive huge donations. Are all these income legal ?

 Main  D :

1.                  we do once again offer  our conditional services to the government of india , all state governments & supreme court of india , in apprehending  tax evaders , land grabbers , corrupt police , corrupt judges , corrupt  public servants , labor law violators , etc. whom the the government officials , vigilance authorities have failed to apprehend. Why the authorities , courts , supreme court of India , are not ready  to utilize our service ? are they afraid of being caught ?

2.                  the public servants , courts theselves are delaying giving information / records to us in many cases. So in the issues / cases raised by us , the clause of time bar doe not apply. Are these delaying tactics of public servants , courts legal ?

3.                  why no proper , timely action was not taken based on numerous police complaints made by us ?

4.                  why DG & IGP , Government of Karnataka , has not made any efforts to seek legal sanction for prosecution of VVIPs ( mentioned in our complaint ) , from union & state home ministries ?

5.                  the criminal nexus is trying to silence me in many ways , but the supreme court of India & national human rights  commission  has failed to undo the injustices , why ? is it because it is not a high profile case  ? is it because it  is not hi-fi , does not get image ratings , TRPs ?

6.                  the public servants are aiding underworld , naxalites & terrorists , by their delaying tactics & denial of information , records. What action has been taken against such anti-national elements in public service ?

7.                  how many complaints are made by Nagaraj .M.R. , Human Rights Activist , Mysore (editor of SOS e-clarion of dalit & SOS e-voice for justice) to Karnataka police , to national human rights commission  to supreme court of India till date ? what action taken with respect to each complaint ?

8.                  the delay in taking action by public servants  with respect to following cases has resulted in  more crimes , destruction / manipulation of evidences , records  and more injustices to commonman. Why the authorities did not take timely action against criminals in following cases ?

Constable Files PIL In Bombay HC Alleging “Rampant Corruption” In Traffic Police Department

 

In an embarrassment to the Police Department, head constable Sunil Toke has  fied a PIL alleging rampant corruption in Mumbai’s traffic  police, seeking registration of an FIR against corrupt police officials and constitution of a Special Investigation Team to look into this entire case. Toke, who is currently posted at Worli, was earlier posted at Goregaon Traffic Police Division and at Wadala Traffic Police Division. He has been in police service for 32 years.

During his stint in the Traffic Police division, the petition state D Toke was “shocked and surprised” to see such “rampant corruption”. Many allegations were levelled against the traffic police in the petition. It was stated that in each region/division of Traffic Police Department, there are two constables/havildars, who are known as “cashiers”. They are unofficially deputed on the duty to collect daily / monthly hafta from old and new two-wheeler and four-wheeler showrooms, which is about Rs.5,000 to Rs.10,000. It is also stated that traffic police “collect around Rs.25,000 to Rs.30,000 per month for running ready-mix cement vehicles, sand, bricks and other construction material vehicles. “

Other cases where the traffic police choose to look the other way in exchange for some cash, were also highlighted. For example, in case of illegal parking on the roads, it is stated that the traffic police take money from five star hotels for allowing illegal parking on the roads. Even in cases of drunken driving, the petition stated that the police let the guilty off the hook in exchange for cash.

 The petitioner had written several complaints to senior police officials, including the Commissioner as well as the Director General of Police, citing instances of corruption in the traffic police department but no action has been taken. He even wrote a letter to the Chief Minister. He even submitted a CD, which allegedly has proof to substantiate his allegations. This matter will come up for hearing in due course

 

Unauthorised colonies born out of greed: Delhi HC

 

Unauthorised colonies are normally born out of greed with intent of securing unmerited benefits and legalising them has emboldened purchasers of acquired land and encroachers apart from leading to manifold problems, the Delhi High Court has said.

“This court would like to emphasise the distinction between an unauthorised colony and jhuggi jhopri cluster.

While jhuggi jhopri clusters are normally born out of need and necessity for housing of the poor and under privileged, unauthorised colonies are normally born out of greed with intent to secure unmerited benefits,” Justice Manmohan said.

The observation came while dismissing a plea of a resident welfare association (RWA) to restrain the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) from dispossessing any of the members of the association from their land to build roads.

The court in its judgement has said people “who have cut these unauthorised colonies have neither paid full development charges to the civic authorities nor provided proper civic facilities like roads, sewerage, drainage, water and electricity and as a consequence, diseases like malaria, diarrhoea and tuberculosis are common in Delhi”.

It said it would be difficult to provide adequate and proper sewage, drainage and roads after an unplanned colony has been constructed and occupied, as construction would have been carried out in a “haphazard manner without adhering to any scientific norms”.

The court further said, “Legalising of unauthorised colonies in the past has not only emboldened the purchasers of acquired land and rank encroachers but has created manifold problems of environmental degradation, traffic bottlenecks etc.”

It said the members of the RWA of Utsav Vihar here who are affected by the acquisition of their land by DDA can move individual petitions in the high court for relief under the Land Acquisition Act of 2013.

The RWA had contended that the acquisition of their land, initiated under the earlier Act of 1894, had lapsed as no compensation had been paid.

Justice Manmohan, however, said that “till the time the appropriate court does not declare that the acquisition proceeding has lapsed, this court is of the view that the right of DDA to the land cannot be questioned”.

DDA had, during the proceedings, contended that as the unauthorised colony of the petitioner RWA was on acquired government land, the authority was entitled to utilise any portion of the acquired land for a public project.

 

 

Is The U.S Fighting Terrorism Or Manufacturing It?

 

President Obama’s final foreign policy speech at MacDill air force base in Tampa, betrayed its purpose through the venue.  The Tampa, Florida, base is home to Special Operations Command and Central Command — Special Operations playing an ever increasing role in counter terrorism.

The gist of the speech seemed to assert that the US is and should stay true to its values when fighting terrorism.  An assertion when at the same time Congressman Ted Lieu, a California Democrat, has written a letter to Secretary John Kerry warning him the US could be charged with war crimes in aiding Saudi Arabia’s bombing campaign in Yemen.  The US helps through in-air refueling of planes.  The Congressman claims there are 70 documented incidents targeting civilians including women and children.  Yemen itself never had a refugee crisis through years of civil conflict, that is until the merciless Saudi air onslaught.

What did Libya do to incur US wrath?  It was fighting a civil war where the casualties were in the hundreds and the rebels themselves not without foreign instigators.  Look at Libya now.  From leading Africa on the Human Development Index scale to being bombed into a shambles without an effective government.  By the way, what was the strategic (or for that matter even tactical) value of bombing a precious and expensive water system bringing water from the south to Tripoli?  And how did it help the civilian population of Tripoli?  Now, of course, those who can, in Libya, are fleeing to Europe.  In fact, sub-Saharan Africans who would come to Libya seeking work now try also to get to Europe.

Ask the Libyans who they blame for their problems and the answer comes back without equivocation, the US.   It was the leading cause of the country’s destruction.  Ask the Yemenis … ditto.  It is the country supplying the planes, the bombs, the air-refueling.  Without it there would be no air campaign.  Ask the Syrians as a National Public Radio reporter did this week.  They certainly do not blame President Bashar Assad, who they feel is doing well at keeping the country together.  No, they blame the Saudis, the Gulf States and their arms supplier-in-chief, the US.

Ask the Somalis.  It was a U.S. sponsored invasion of Somalia by Ethiopia that destroyed the last chance of Somali stability, continuing the killing.  The Islamic Courts regime could not have chosen a worse name, which sent danger signals rippling through the US administration, bringing fears of a Taliban and al-Qaeda replay.  And it was a quiet, studious Somali student who went on a rampage at Ohio State University just over a week ago.  Mr. Trump has been there this week to express his condolences and to repeat his anti-Muslim immigration and “extreme vetting” creed.

Ask the Iraqis and the Afghans.  A vast swathe from North Africa through Yemen into Afghanistan and Pakistan are embroiled in conflict.  Estimates of deaths in Iraq vary from 200,000 ascribed to violence to a million from the ravages of war.  The war casualties in Afghanistan according to the Watson Institute at Brown University stand at around 111,000 with at least as many wounded, and continue to increase after a US presence for 15 years.  Deaths from the effects of war among the population are not easily determined but as in Iraq are likely to be even higher.

The question to ask is whether 19 persons, primarily from Saudi Arabia, responsible for the 9/11 attacks warrant this wholesale killing.  And for what?  If anything, the situation and the fear factor in the US are worse and one of the reasons for Donald Trump’s win.

Is this heavy-handed policy actually fighting terrorism successfully, or is it alienating populations enough to be a proximate cause?

 

 

Open Letter To Chief Justice Of India On The Arrest Of Activists Of The Telangana Democratic Front

 

To,

The Chief Justice of India
Supreme Court of India
Tilak Marg
New Delhi – 110201 (India)

Date:09.01.2017

Subject: Seeking immediate intervention into the arrest of activists of the Telangana Democratic Front on false charges and other attacks on rights defenders by police and vigilante groups in Chhattisgarh
Honourable Sir,

In continuation with our previous two petitions dated 22nd February 2016 and 26th February 2016, we wish to draw you attention to the consistent erosion of rule of law and constitutional freedoms in Chhattisgarh in the wake of continuing attacks on civil rights defenders by the state police and administration in close collusion with the vigilante groups like the Samajik Ekta Manch and AGNI. In the most recent case of attack, on 25th December, 2016 a 7 member fact finding team was arrested by the Telangana police at Dummaguddem village of Bhadrachalam district at 6 pm and handed over to the Sukma Police (Chhattisgarh State).

The fact finding team consisted of members of the Telangana Democratic Front (TDF). TDF was formed recently to fight for the rights of the people of Telangana state. The members of the fact finding team are Chikkudu Prabhakar (Advocate), Bhalla Ravindranath (Advocate, High Court, AP), Durga Prasad (Journalist), Duddu Prabhakar (President, KNPS, AP), Rajendra Prasad (Student leader, Telangana Vidyarthi Vedika), Nazeer (Student leader, Telangana Vidyarthi Vedika) and Ramananda Laskhme (Student organizer), all seven are persons of public repute and have been committed to the cause of democratic rights for decades.The team was on its way to investigate complaints of human rights violations suffered by adivasis of Chhattisgarh at the hands of security forces. The immediate context of the fact finding related to the murder of a 13 year old tribal boy Somaru Pottam. On December 16, Bijapur police had announced that a team of security forces had killed an ‘unidentified and armed Maoist in uniform’ in Metapal in a gun battle. The residents of Metapal, however, later recognized him as Somaru Pottam, following which Pottam’s parents petitioned the High Court.

The Sukma police has alleged that the team members were in possession of demonetized currency and had come to aid the Maoists by exchanging the old currency on their behalf. The team was charged under sections 8(1), (2) and (3) of the Chhattisgarh State Public Security Act, on charges of support to Maoists and for possession of banned literature. On 3rd January the Dantewada district court rejected the bail application in the case. During the court hearing neither the copies of seizure reports, FIR, and or panchnama reports that are public documents have been shared with the defence lawyers. The list of seizure reports that were read out contained books widely available and none belonged to the category of banned literature. The action of the police against the fact finding team is clearly an attempt to criminalize democratic activity and prevent democratic and human rights groups from entering Chhattisgarh and documenting excesses by the security forces.

The arrests and incarceration of the activists of TDF is part of a long chain of organized attacks marked by false cases, detention, intimidation and harassment of those who dare to expose the lawlessness of the state. In 2016 alone, the security forces have carried out 134 encounter deaths in Chhattisgarh and three cases of sexual violence by security forces have come to public light. In one of the cases that occurred in October 2015 in Bijapur, the NHRC has found prima facie evidence against the state police officials of gang rapes and physical assault of tribal women. A similar incident of sexual violence took place this year in January in the Nendra village, in relation to which the NHRC has sought response from the authorities. While the state continues to intensify the use of violence against the tribals in Chhattisgarh as part of their ‘counter-Maoist’ operations, carrying out planned encounters, fake surrenders, sexual abuses and illegal detentions, those bringing out the truth have also been on the radar of the state. The following cases of attack on journalists, lawyers and activists in 2016, bear testimony to the vindictive vendetta of the state.

i) Intimidation of lawyer, Shalini Gera: Shalini Gera, along with other members of the Jagdalpur Legal Aid Group (JAGLAG), have continuously been harassed and attacked by the police and local groups, as a penalty for providing legal remedies to adivasis who have suffered at the hands of the police and security forces. In December 2016, another attack was made at Shalini accusing her of exchanging old currency notes for Maoists. She was also accused of meeting Maoists in the Dantewada jungles. The complaint was made by a member of the vigilante group AGNI. Shalini was present in Goel dharamshala, in Jagdalpur, from 25.12.2016 to 26.12.2016, to attend the exhumation and repeat post mortem ordered by the Chhattisgarh High Court, of the body of Somaru Pottam having found prima facie evidence of murder. Shalini Gera is representing the parents of Somaru Pottam in the case where his parents have accused the security forces of killing their son. Shalini Gera and her team were accompanied throughout by Mr. D Mahant, Tehsildar of Bijapur, and also by Mr. Pankaj Daharia CEO of Bijapur and the SDM of Bijapur. Mr. Wasnikar, Divisional Commissioner, had made arrangements for their stay in Goel Dharamshala as the Circuit house was fully occupied. However on the 26th evening, she was threatened by the SI Archana Dhurandhar, and accused by of staying in the dharamshala in an ‘unauthorized’ manner. The next day, she received a call from Mr R.N. Dash, SP Bastar, that he has received a complaint against Shalini for adding the Maoists. So far, no FIR has been registered but DIG Kalluri has addressed several press conferences announcing that they are investigating the complaint. These attempts at intimidation are not new. For the past year and a half, Shalini Gera and her colleague Isha Khandelwal have been constantly harassed by the police officials and were forced to vacate their premises on February 20, 2016, under orders from SP Dash and SRP Kalluri.

ii) Harassment of Sukul Prasad Barse, an adivasi rights activist: Sukul Prasad Barse, an adivasi activist was intimidated by the Chhattisgarh police for organizing a meeting on the 19th of December in village Matenaar of Dantewada district. The purpose of the meeting, organized with the help of People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) was to hear accounts of the family members of those adivasis who have been killed in fake encounters, were victims of sexual violence and other human rights abuses by the police and security forces. Activists who were returning after the event, were stopped by the police for verification. The photos of the activists were taken by the police and circulated through social media and were circulated to vigilante groups who in turn concocted a story of JNU students having come to Bastar for provoking people. The Dantewada police have been regularly visiting Mr Barse’s house and threatening him for organizing this event.

iii) Intimidation of activists in the wake of the CBI charge sheet in the Tadmetla massacre: In October 2016, effigies were burnt by the police of six prominent members of civil society who have faced violence and intimidation earlier for resisting the ongoing war against the adivasis in Bastar. This ‘official protest’ by the police came in the wake of the CBI submitting its status report in the Supreme Court monitored inquiry into the Tadmetla massacre of 2011. The CBI in its report held 7 SPOs responsible for the arson and 26 Salwa Judum members guilty of the attack on Swami Agnivesh and his team when they went to do a fact-finding. The CBI also found prima facie evidence of killing, rapes, brutal assault and lootings. The Chhattisgarh Police dismissed the CBI findings claiming that the burning down of the village was accidentally caused by heat generated by crossfire during an operation against the Maoists. Thereafter, on 24th October personnel of the Chhattisgarh Auxilliary Police Force burnt effigies of Manish Kunjam, Nandini Sundar, Bela Bhatia, Soni Sori and Malini Subramaniam, across Bastar. Kunjam and Sundar are the petitioners in the Tadmetla case. The police forces while burning the effigies, in defiance and utmost contempt of the Supreme Court order, claimed that those six persons are ‘anti-nationals’ responsible for maligning the Chhattisgarh police propagating false and fabricated stories.

iv) UAPA and murder charges against tribal rights activists: On 5th November an FIR was registered by the Chhattisgarh police invoking Sections 302 (murder), 120B (criminal conspiracy), 147 (punishment for rioting), 148 (rioting armed with deadly weapon) and 149 (Unlawful assembly towards common object) of the IPC against 26 persons. The list of accused included academics, Nandini Sundar and Archana Prasad, activists Vineet Tiwari, Sanjay Parate from the Communist Party of India (Marxist), two local activists, Manju Kawasi and Manglu Ram Karma for the murder of Shamnath Baghel, a resident of Nama village and alleged leader of an anti-Naxal group called ‘Tangiya’, who was killed on 4th November allegedly by the Maoists. The FIR was filed on a complaint allegedly made by the wife of the deceased (which she later denied to NDTV). This particular case connects back to a fact-finding conducted by the people listed in the FIR in May 2016. The fact finding report had revealed several instances of fake encounters, rapes and arrests by police and security forces, beatings and IED blasts rampantly carried out by the police. The team had also revealed that the police were holding Jan Jagran Abhiyans with villagers and evidently aiding the resurgence of armed militia of villagers similar to the earlier disbanded Salwa Judum, to counter the Maoists. Following the report, the Chhattisgarh police had accused the team members of threatening the villagers and forcibly asking them to support the Maoists, a claim that the villagers of Nama had later denied. It also remains a fact that one of the prime accused in the FIR, Prof. Nandini Sundar is a petitioner in the Tadmetla case. The fact that these persons were not there in the village on the day of the murder, did not deter the police from pursuing the complaint against them. DIG Kalluri himself appeared before the media, congratulating his men for bringing the accused to task! Finally, a petition was moved in the Supreme Court of India that made it obligatory for the State of Chhattisgarh to provide four week notice to the court before deciding on any action, led to some temporary relief.

v) Attack on journalist Prabhat Singh: An organized campaign has long been carried out against the local journalists who have been reporting about the police excesses in the state. On 21st March 2016, Prabhat Singh, a local journalist working with ETV, was picked up by policemen in plain clothes from his office and taken to Parapa police station where he was illegally detained for a day and tortured all night. He was also pressurized to write reports favouring the DIG Kalluri and was forced to sign a number of blank documents. Prabhat Singh was then charged under Sections 67, 67 (A), 292 IT Act on the allegation that he had sent an obscene what’s app message against a senior police officer. The complaint against Prabhat Singh was registered at the behest of the members of the local vigilante group Samajik Ekta Manch. A day before his illegal detention, his job at the ETV was abruptly terminated without any prior notice, blatantly bringing to fore the planned nature of attack against him. Singh had been reporting on fraudulent arrests and fake encounters carried out by the Bastar police consistently since 2014 and had been threatened by the police against his reporting. In 2015, three other cases had been registered against him in the district of Dantewada including charges under The SC and the ST (Prevention Of Atrocities) Act, 1989 and the draconian Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act, 2005. On 21st June 2016, the Chhattisgarh High Court granting him bail on all four cases registered against him.

vi) Arrest of journalist Deepak Jaiswal: On 26th March 2016, another journalist Deepak Jaiswal working for Daindini newspaper, was arrested by the police when he had gone to the court to file a bail application for Prabhat Singh. He was arrested in a seven month old case in which Prabhat Singh also was a co-accused. The two journalists had reported about a school in Geedam in Dantewada where teachers helped the students cheat in the exam. After the report, the Principal had complained against the two for forcibly entering the school and demanding money. The arrest was made, however, only when Jaiswal had come in support of Prabhat Singh on charges of trespassing, obstructing public servant from discharging their duty, and assault against a public servant. Along with Someru Nag, Santosh Yadav (see annexure dated 22nd February) and Prabhat Singh, Jaiswal became the fourth journalist to be arrested in Chhattisgarh within less than six months.

These instances of intimidation, harassment, physical attacks, evictions, false cases, and arrests of activists in Chhattisgarh, have continued unabated in the year 2016, much like the past. By embroiling the journalists and activists in false cases and arresting and torturing some of them, the police tries to ensure that crimes being committed by Government forces and their allies do not get reported. By dragging in the names of scholars and activists espousing the cause of the tribal rights, the support and solidarity to the adivasis is increasingly restricted. By intimidating and evicting legal helps such as JagLag, legal assistance to adivasis is made difficult ensuring they languish in jail for innocence. Findings of the CBI in the Tadmetla massacre, the NHRC in the Nendra sexual violence or the High Court in Pottam’s encounter, need to be viewed as public acknowledgement of that the ‘counter-Maoist operation’ in Chhattisgarh carried out by security forces is a farce under the garb of which violence is being perpetrated and vested interests are being served. The state continues to foster vigilante groups such as AGNI which are nothing but revived forms of the earlier disbanded Salwa Judum. The Supreme Court in a historic judgment in 2011 had declared the Salwa Judum unconstitutional, however, guises of the same have been continually being operating as illegally armed local militias intimidating democratic forces and silencing the truth.

Burning effigies in relation to the Tadmetla findings in contempt of the Supreme Court order, disrupting the process of exhumation and post-mortem ordered by the Chhattisgarh High Court and continuing to arm and empower local goons against civilians, the Chhattisgarh state police has also been trying to impede the interests of justice by defying the judiciary. We, therefore, appeal for your urgent intervention in the prevailing state of affairs in Chhattisgarh.

The Arrest Of Advocate Murugan And Charging Him With UAPA Is Condemned

 

Committee for Protection of Democratic Rights – Tamil Nadu, (CPDR-TN) strongly condemns the arrest of Advocate Murugan, Secretary Centre for Protection of Civil Liberties (CPCL), on 8th January by the Tamilnadu Q branch police. The police had gone to his house in the early morning 4 o’clock, in the pretext of search operations with the search warrant order from Karur district magistrate. And the Q branch police arrested him under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) sections 18(a), 18(b), 20 and 38 & IPC 120(b) for allegedly arranging shelter for two women Maoists who were arrested in Karur five months before. And they took with them all the case documents , files, preparations for final arguments for some cases, some common books and Homeopathy medicines & medical book.

Advocate Murugan has been in the civil rights activity for more than 10 years and has been in the forefront taking up the cause of political prisoners cases including that of maoists. He has also been representing the two women maoists arrested five months before in Karur. The court had issued search warrant of Advocate Murugan, in compliance with the Q branch, in the Karur case. The order issued by the district magistrate should have ordered restraint on the search, as he must know that advocates , who are regarded as officers of the court, are part and parcel of the court and play vital roles in the administration of justice, are bound to be in possession of all documents for reference and defence of their clients who are accused before court of law.

Section II of Bar Council of India 1975, in part VI chapter II provides for duties of advocates towards his clients. Rules 15 and rules 19 has relevance to the same.

Rule 15 states that “ it shall be the duty of an advocate fearlessly to uphold the interest of his client by all fair and honourable means without regard to any unpleasant consequences to himself or any other. He shall defend the person accused of a crime regardless of his personal opinion as to the guilt of the accused, bearing in mind that his loyalty to the law which requires that no man should be convicted without adequate evidence”.

Rules 19 states that “an advocate shall not act on the instructions of any person other than his client or his authorized agent”.

And “ an advocate should not by any means, directly or indirectly, disclose the communications made by his client to him. He shall also not disclose the advice given by him in the proceedings if it does not violate section 126 of the Indian Evidence Act, 1872.”

Advocate Murugan, in defence of maoist clients being Indian citizens has only been discharging his duty as under the provisions of advocate acts and it was not in any way violative of the legal provisions and he is entitled for practice of his profession as guaranteed under 19(g) of Constitution of india. Without any such restraints the karur Court’s compliance with Police, the search warrant leaves Q branch the high possibility of utilizing any defence materials of the advocate to implicate him in the same case he is defending. This is a fundamental violation of the right of the advocate to defend his client and lack of protection from the court leaves total violation of fundamental right to justice of the advocate and thus his client.

CPDR-TN considers the issuance of search warrant on a court office without any restraints for safeguarding his legal professions and practices guaranteed by Bar Council of India rules and Indian Republican Constitution suffers from lack of application of mind.

CPDR-TN condemns the branding and arresting of any Advocates defending the accused under UAPA and insists that courts should regard that no one is guilty until proved before law and provide complete protection for such advocates to ensure legal provisions.

CPDR-TN condemns the highhandedness of Tamilnadu State police in arresting Advocate Murugan and implicating him in the same case as the client he is defending as per the legal provisions.

CPDR-TN insists that Advocate Murugan should be released immediately, unconditionally and all cases foisted upon him be withdrawn and return all the case files and documents taken forthwith.

To Resist And Live, But Not To Disappear

 

Co-Written by Navaneeth & Shini J K

“If you resist, you will disappear
if you step aside, you will be ruined
Swindling, fraud,
murder, selfishness,
robbery, jealousy
are part of the game
There is only one way from hereon
Just come quietly
partake in all of this
You will thrive”

This is an excerpt from one of Perumal murugan’s recent poetry collection named “A Coward’s Song” written during his literary exile after being hounded by fascist hindutva and casteist forces a year and a half back. Perumal murugan happens to belong to a series of other writers, public intellectuals and activists who have been targeted over the past 24 months by right wing fringe elements. Dhabolkar, Pansare and Kalburgi were there before Perumal Murugan!

More recently, the series of incidents that have happened in Kerala is highly alarming about the times we live in. There have been a series of arrests in Kerala under the current CPM Government on the allegations of disrespecting national anthem, supporting the Maoists and on suspicions of Maoist links following the shocking Nilambur fake encounter killing.

Ajitha and KuppuDevaraj were murdered in the Nilambur forest by the thunderbolt under the same CPM Government.

“We cannot allow the republic killing its own children, We hope there will be an answer. There will be a good and convincing answer.”
– 14 January 2011, SC Division Bench of justices Aftab Alam and R M Lodha on the fake encounter killing of Comrade Azad and Hemchandra Pandey.)

Many among the people who are now being targeted are under the threat of UAPA and Sedition charges when the very existence of these draconian laws are against the constitution and fundamental rights, in principle.

Rajeesh Kollakkandi, a human rights activist from Kerala and a member of Janakeeya Manushyaavakaasha Prasthaanam, got suspended from the service for helping the families of the Maoists attacked by the state. The charges on him are violation of code of conduct and he has been charged under UAPA.

(Mere membership of banned organizations cannot be grounds for incarceration, nor can speaking, writing or singing about socio-economic injustices be criminalised. – Bombay high Court in 2013, while granting bail for 4 members of Kabir Kala Manch)

Half a dozen people have been picked up by the police from theatre during the International Film Festival of Kerala for refusing to stand up for the National Anthem. Following this, well known Malayalam Film Maker and this year’s festival director Kamal was targeted by Yuva Morcha for being a Muslim, though he has always refused to live with a Muslim Identity.

The CPM which has now become the self proclaimed vanguards of the nation from Jingoistic Nationalism is no different from the BJP in power and other supporting right wing outfits in its fascistic tendencies. Anything that is forced can only be a mockery and people have all the right to not to conform to the ideas which they don’t believe in. A country, which has failed to address the oppressed identities including Dalits, Adivasis, Muslims, Kashmiris, people from the north-east, sexual and linguistic minorities cannot all of a sudden demand everyone to stand up for its National Anthem.

Within a few days, Malayalam writer, theatre artist Kamal C Chavara has been picked up by the police on the complaint filed by the Yuva Morcha o the allegations of disrespecting national anthem in his novel “Smashaanangalude Nottupusthakam. A young activist Nadeer, who visited Kamal in hospital was then picked up, under suspicions of Maoists links, while him being a strong critic of Maoist ideology. Both their releases could happen because of the pressure built by their supporters. Nadeer’s house was still raided following his release.

Sudeep and Shafeek, two activists from Kerala have charges on them for supporting the accused. It is our right to question and critique the state and the judiciary when they go against the will, fundamental rights and well being of its people. The state always has possessed this classical tendency to criminalise the dissent, but recently, with BJP coming into power with the support of other right wing outfits and corporate giants, the socio-political situation has reached its worst. Similar instances have been repeating in Kerala under the CPM Government. And, to add on to this, it is important to remember that feudal, brahmanical and fascist tendencies of CPM, the so-called left, is not very new.

Few days back, five students from Maharajas College, Ernakulam have been arrested for writing on the walls. The lines which they chose are actually from a poem by well known Malayalam Poet Kureeppuzha Sreekumar. The students are released but still have charges on them on the principal’s complaint. We all started our fights writing posters and writing on the walls. When they criminalise the dissent, it’s high time to reclaim our spaces.

We have lost Rohit and Najeeb under the fascist regime. We can’t afford to loose more. There are more people who are inside and outside the jail with the charges of UAPA and sedition. Abdul Nazer Mahadani, Sakkariya, Thasleem, Shanto Lal, Ismail Hamza, Kannampilly Murali, M N Ravunni, Sabu, Gauri, Chathu, Ajithan, Arun, Anoop, Thushar Nirmal Sarathy, Jaison C Cooper, and the list never ends. Some are in Jail for years though there is not enough evidence against the allegations made against them.

The state has been using the draconian laws like UAPA and AFSPA for years against it’s own people to oppress the voice of dissent. These laws, while going against the fundamental rights, provide the state a chance to target people who raise their voice, without even going “extra judicial”. We have examples like Dr G N Saibaba, Kabir Kala Manch, Arun Ferreira and Koba Gandhi in the past. The state has been using the law as tools to prevent the struggles of the oppressed and the marginalised. This is high time we unite and stand against all the draconian laws and demand justice for the political prisoners all across the country.

Whatever manifests in the society through police-raj is a sign of having a corporate-fascist, right-wing state in power, both at the centre and the state.

We conclude with what Albert Camus once said, “The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.” Love and Solidarity to the people who have been attacked and targeted by the state for raising their voices.

We Shall Fight,
We Shall Win.

 

Bastar Police Continue Their Vendetta Against Women Human Rights Defenders

 

Clearly rattled by the mounting body of evidence of blatant violations of the rule of law and Constitutional rights under the cover of anti-Maoist operations, the Bastar police has launched a no-holds-barred attempt to silence all those who are calling them to account.

Advocate Shalini Gera and her colleagues of JagLAG who were in Jagdalpur in connection with a case of false encounter of a young Adivasi boy (1), were confronted on the night of 27 December by a police team which entered the dharamshala where they were staying and accused them of trying to exchange demonetised notes on behalf of the Maoists. Despite the fact that they were following up on an order by the Chhattisgarh HC for exhumation and a second post-mortem in the case and their accommodation had been arranged by the office of the Divisional Commissioner, Adv Shalini and her colleagues were ordered to come to the police station for interrogation. Attempts were also made to forcibly search their rooms and belongings. When asked to produce a warrant, the SI in charge of the team became even more aggressive and abusive. It took a personal call from the Divisional Commissioner to the SI to force the police to back off.

A day later when she was back at her office in Bilaspur,Adv Shalini received a call on her mobile from the SP Bastar, Shri RN Dash. Shri Dash was calling from a private number which was later identified as belonging to one Farukh Ali, a member of AGNI, a vigilante group that enjoys the patronage of the Bastar police.
Speaking in an aggressive and offensive manner, Shri Dash insisted that he had received complaints accusing Adv Shalini of being a Maoist agent, inciting villagers against getting Aadhar cards, changing old currency notes for the Maoists, spreading stories about police atrocities and other such random allegations. Shri Dash asked Adv Shalini to come to Bastar for further “interrogation”, to which she replied that she would not respond to intimidation and would answer questions only if due process was followed.

When Adv Shalini called back on Shri Dash’s official number to confirm if he was indeed the person who had just threatened her, he at first refused to admit that he knew who she was but soon lost his temper again, confirmed that he had called her, reiterated his claim that there were complaints against her and told her not to “waste his time” by calling him. Within a few hours after this conversation, copies of the complaint and allegations against her were being circulated on social media by Farrukh Ali, proving – if proof were needed – the close nexus between the police and these violent so-called “independent civil society groups”.

It will be remembered that earlier this year, the Bastar police unleashed a campaign of threats and intimidation against local activists, media persons, human rights lawyers and others who were investigating and exposing the systematic violations of human rights, particularly sexual violence against Adivasi women by police and auxiliary forces engaged in anti-Maoist operations. In response to complaints from WSS and wide coverage in national newspapers, the National Human Rights Commission took cognisance the issue and fielded an investigation team in March 2016. The Chhattisgarh government has yet to respond to the report of this investigation.

Meanwhile, the Bastar police under the command of Inspector-General SRP Kalluri has continued its attacks on human rights defenders, activists and journalists, brazenly flaunting its disregard for human rights and the rule of law. IG Kalluri has publicly opposed the Supreme Court judgement in the Salwa Judum case, and has orchestrated the formation of vigilante groups like AGNI that provide platforms for erstwhile Judum leaders to continue their violent activities. Shri Kalluri reacted to his indictment by the CBI in the Tadmetla atrocity, where police fired on unarmed Adivasis and set an entire village on fire, by attacking Prof Nandini Sundar, the petitioner in the Salwa Judum case, and attempting to implicate her in the murder of a member of an anti-Maoist village-level vigilante squad.
The attack on Adv Shalini and her colleagues follows closely on the arrest of seven members of a fact-finding team from the Telengana Democratic Forum who were on their way to Bastar were summarily arrested, accused of exchanging demonetised notes for Maoists and charged under the draconian provisions of the Chattisgarh Public Security Act. The arrested persons include senior human rights lawyers, Dalit rights activists and student leaders.

These patently illegal and outrageeous attempts to subdue and silence human rights defenders are a signal of the growing desperation of the Bastar police which has now been completely exposed as a rogue force that has perpetrated a reign of terror in Bastar, turning it into a war zone. Out of the 185 deaths by police firing during anti-Maoist operations in the country during this year, 134 have been in Bastar. In the majority of these cases, independent fact-finding teams have found these to be cold-blooded killings of unarmed people, giving the lie to police claims that they fired in self-defence or that villagers were caught in cross-fire. It is this blood-soaked reality that the Bastar police are trying to cover up through their blind vendetta against human rights defenders

The NHRC has taken suo motu cognisance of the deteriorating situation in Bastar, and has summoned the Chief Secretary of Chhattisgarh and IG Kalluri to explain the continuing attacks on human rights defenders, journalists, lawyers and local activists under their watch. Having ducked a previous summons by pleading ill-health, Shri Kalluri is now due to appear before the NHRC on 16 January 2017.

We appeal to all democratic and peace-loving individuals and groups to come together to condemn and resist these shameless attempts to silence dissenting voices and undermine the Constitution, the Supreme Court, the NHRC and other institutions of democratic governance in Bastar.

Honourable Chief Secretary , Government of Karnataka & Others 

....Respondents 



PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA. 


To ,
Hon'ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship's Companion
Justices of the Supreme Court of India. The Humble petition of the
Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :
1. Facts of the case:
"Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for
power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed." Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt public servants. 

2. Eventhough , I have repeatedly appealed to government of karnataka authorities , MUDA , BDA , KIADB , MCC , BBMNP , etc seeking information regarding illegal buildings , land encroachments specifically in mysore & bangalore , they didn’t provide me information. Now one land scam after another are tumbling out. 

3. I have given certain details to authorities including judiciary , SCI regarding land , lake encroachments in mysore when encroachment was at preliminary stage. The authories could have stopped it , but they didn,t. Now , the hinkal lake , hebbal lake , hootagalli lake & BEML Quarters lake have been encroached to maximum extent and criminals have made crores of rupees profit. 

4. Government authorities has not given title deeds to tribals living in forest since centuries , government authorities has not given title deeds to landless people , dalits who are cultivating on government land since decades.

5. Government authorities , police immediately evict , take suo motto action when a poor family , nomadic family just erects a hutment on government land. The same public servants , police don’t take action when a rich crook palatial bungalow , business complex on government land , lake bed. Cann’t they see it. , they can but are hands in glove with looters.

6. even some of the judges don’t take action when appeal for justice is made to them , to evict encroachers , to stop encroachment. It may be quid pro quo arrangement with crooks. See how many judges have benefitted from government discretionary quota allotment of sites , illegal judicial layout , etc.

7. The land encroachers are not poor people below poverty line , they don’t even have ability to build a pucca house. Encroachers are rich crooks , greedy individuals with political connection. So they don’t deserve compassion.

8. Now , government of karnataka is trying to legalise illegalities in buildings , land encroachments , which gives a booster dose to criminals to commit more crimes.

9. As per equitable law if present land encroachments are legalized , in future too government must legalize future land encroachments when ever it takes place.

10. Prior to enactment of AKRAMA SAKRAMA SCHEME of government of karnataka legalizing illegal constructions , land encroachments, MUDA , BDA , MCC , KIADB officials evicted , demolished buildings of encroachers who didn’t cough up bribes. The one who paid bribes , their encroachments , illegal buildings survived and now getting legalized by government.

11. Now , as per equity who ever have been evicted from encroachments , who’s illegal buildings demolished must get compensation from government. If not all encroachers must be evicted & illegal buildings must be demolished.

12. Now  Karnataka High Court  has given green signal to  “AKRAMA SAKRAMA” scheme of government of Karnataka , therby HC Judges are favoring land mafia , criminals.

13. It is the duty of the government  , Police & Court  to  give protection  to journalists , whistle blowers , RTI Activists  who are unearthing  truths , crimes. But  all of them have failed in their duties  to protect RTI Activist Mr.Srinath of Mysuru who was brutally murdered.

14. Recently  Karnataka high court  gave  clearance to Karnataka government’s  regularization of illegal buildings  ( AKRAMA  SAKRAMA ) scheme.

a.  Law is one & same for all.

b.  Government  authorities , police razes down , demolishes  small temporary hutments built by tribals , dalits without  mercy ,  takes suo motto action.  No  court comes to their rescue.

c. Till date  bagar hukum  lands  are not given to dalits , tribals  are not given land rights over their huts in forests. Is Cout  blind , deaf ?

d. However  when rich crooks build  bungalows , commercial complexes  illegally , no suo motto action  taken by government authorizes , police , why ? Courts go a step further it gives  stay orders against demolition  of rich crook’s illegal buildings , asks government to modify plan , law itself  to save illegal buildings of rich crooks.

e. Does Karnataka HC  has  details of exact number of building violations , buildings built on forest lands , lake beds , raja kaluves  with  respective  after  affects on neighbouring buildings , road traffic , ecology , etc  and contingency plan by authorities to overcome those  after affects  casewise backed by technical studies. Make it public.

f. What criminal  action initiated against revenue , police & other officials  who failed in their  duties at the first instance  to stop the  illegal building construction.

g. Small houses  of  poor people  who have  smaller building violations  but  who failed to bribe officials  were dealt mercilessly. Their houses were razed down . Now , will the HC order the government to compensate them , to rebuild houses for them  as the court is now saying they are legal now.

h. Government & HC has given a  cut  off  date  for consideration of  regularization of illegal buildings. When a crime before that cut off date becomes legal , why cann’t it be legal  after that date ?

i. What  guarantee  HC gives no illegal  buildings  has  come up after cut off date  and will never come in future ?

j. If comes what criminal action  against the concerned officials ?

Bottomline : Judges open your eyes , listen , think & then act.




2. Question(s) of Law:

Is robbing another’s property right , legal ? is robbing land , lake – a public property for private , individual use right ? 

Is it  NOT  the  duty  of Police , Court & Government  to  protect Rights , Lives  of  Journalists , Whistle Blowers , RTI  Activists and their family ?

Why   they failed to protect  the life of  Mysuru RTI Activist  Mr. Srinath ? 

3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , Prosecution of master minds of land grabbing ,frauds and related crimes.


4. Averment: 

Covering up Land Frauds & Land Mafia . Please read details at :

The Petitioner has sent many letters / appeals / petitions to supreme court of india & other courts through e-mail , DARPG website & through regular mail requesting them to consider those as PILs.

Cell : 91 8970318202

It is the duty of Supreme Court of India to Protect , Guard the constitutional rights , fundamental rights of every Indian citizen . Since 25 years  I am  appealing  to SCI  about  issues concerning public welfare , national security , etc and as a result suffering injustices , my constitutional rights , human rights are repeatedly violated  but SCI is mum even when repeated appeals were made to it. Paradoxically , after these appeals for justice , I have suffered more injustices , attempts on my life were made ,  physically assaulted , livelihood  / jobs were  denied , news publication closed , press accreditation denied ,  received threatening  calls , blank calls, even to date  rough elements follow us , rough elements  scout  near home at mid night. Does  not these indicate some ties between rough elements & SCI  Judges ?

 

Public Interest Litigation is an appeal  for justice  to the courts , to redress  the injustices meted out to  the public.  Individual cases of injustices  pertaining to an individual are not covered under PIL, however  an individual an activist  who  is fighting for public causes  suffering  injustices  as a result of   his struggle  ,caused by powers that be to silence him  can club  his individual case under the public causes  (PIL ) he is  appealing.

 

Nowadays people of questionable character , integrity  are being selected to public posts , end result is present day india.  In the following web sites I have shown  few actual cases of crimes by judges & police , just imagine what type of justice common man gets.

Traitors  in   Indian  Judiciary & Police

https://www.scribd.com/document/329980170/Traitors-in-Judiciary-Police

Crimes  by  Khaki

https://www.scribd.com/document/334590032/Crimes-by-Khaki  ,

Police show full bravery , courage , use  full might of law while acting against innocents , commoners. Even  takes suo motto action. Frequently crosses legal limits  while acting against commoners like 3rd degree torture , arrest / search  , seizure without warrant , arrest in mid night , etc . While they are supposed to take action against rich crooks , their own corrupt colleagues  no suo motto action , delayed action inspite of complaint  allowing time for rich crook to get anticipatory bail , no 3rd degree torture on him , no arrest , search , seizure without warrant. Where is the bravery , courage of police ?

Judges show their full wisdom , apply rigid law book while  judging cases of commoners , take suo motto action  where as  cases involving rich crooks comes before them inspite of repeated PILs they don’t consider it , let alone take suo motto action. Judges make far fetched interpretations of law , ultimately benefitting the rich crook. Where is the wisdom of Judges ?


I ,NAGARAJA.M.R. hereby do declare that information given above are true to the best of my knowledge & belief. If i am repeatedly called to police station or else where for the sake of investigations , the losses i do incurr as a result like loss of wages , transportation , job , etc must be borne by the government. prevoiusly the police / IB personnel repeatedly called me the complainant (sufferer of injustices) to police station for questioning , but never called the guilty culprits , rich crooks , criminals even once to police station for questioning , as the culprits are high & mighty . this type of one sided questioning must not be done by police or investigating agencies . if anything untoward happens to me or to my family members like loss of job , meeting with hit & run accidents , loss of lives , death due to improper medical care , etc , the jurisdictional police together with above mentioned accussed public servants will be responsible for it. Even if criminal nexus levels fake charges , police file fake cases against me or my dependents to silence me , this complaint is & will be effective.

Powers that  be , higher ups have referred all my previous cases to police although in most of the cases  police don’t  have jurisdiction over it.  It  sends  a subtle message by police force to  the  complainant  to keep silent . In the remaining cases  which are under their jurisdiction police  don’t act against higher ups , high & mighty. In such cases police lack  practical powers , their hands are tied although they  are  honest.  As a end result , police  have repeatedly called   me to police station  number of  times  ( have never called guilty  influential persons even once)  took  statement  from  me and closed  the files.

 

Hereby , I do make it clear  the statements made by me  in my original petitions , PILs , news papers  , etc  while I was in  a free & fair atmosphere  are  TRUE  , over rides , prevails over all the statements made by me before police  earlier and  which will be made by me  in future before police.

 

If I or my family members or my dependents are denied our fundamental rights , human rights , denied proper medical care for ourselves , If anything untoward happens to me or to my dependents or to my family members – In such case Chief Justice of India together with the jurisdictional revenue & police officials will be responsible for it , in such case the government of india is liable to pay Rs. TWO crore as compensation to survivors of my family. if my whole family is eliminated by the criminal nexus ,then that compensation money must be donated to Indian Army Welfare Fund. Afterwards , the money must be recovered by GOI as land arrears from the salary , pension , property , etc of guilty police officials , Judges , public servants & Constitutional functionaries.

Honourable Chief Secretary , Government of Karnataka & Others 

....Respondents 



PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA. 


To ,
Hon'ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship's Companion
Justices of the Supreme Court of India. The Humble petition of the
Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :
1. Facts of the case:
"Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for
power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed." Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt public servants. 

2. Eventhough , I have repeatedly appealed to government of karnataka authorities , MUDA , BDA , KIADB , MCC , BBMNP , etc seeking information regarding illegal buildings , land encroachments specifically in mysore & bangalore , they didn’t provide me information. Now one land scam after another are tumbling out. 

3. I have given certain details to authorities including judiciary , SCI regarding land , lake encroachments in mysore when encroachment was at preliminary stage. The authories could have stopped it , but they didn,t. Now , the hinkal lake , hebbal lake , hootagalli lake & BEML Quarters lake have been encroached to maximum extent and criminals have made crores of rupees profit. 

4. Government authorities has not given title deeds to tribals living in forest since centuries , government authorities has not given title deeds to landless people , dalits who are cultivating on government land since decades.

5. Government authorities , police immediately evict , take suo motto action when a poor family , nomadic family just erects a hutment on government land. The same public servants , police don’t take action when a rich crook palatial bungalow , business complex on government land , lake bed. Cann’t they see it. , they can but are hands in glove with looters.

6. even some of the judges don’t take action when appeal for justice is made to them , to evict encroachers , to stop encroachment. It may be quid pro quo arrangement with crooks. See how many judges have benefitted from government discretionary quota allotment of sites , illegal judicial layout , etc.

7. The land encroachers are not poor people below poverty line , they don’t even have ability to build a pucca house. Encroachers are rich crooks , greedy individuals with political connection. So they don’t deserve compassion.

8. Now , government of karnataka is trying to legalise illegalities in buildings , land encroachments , which gives a booster dose to criminals to commit more crimes.

9. As per equitable law if present land encroachments are legalized , in future too government must legalize future land encroachments when ever it takes place.

10. Prior to enactment of AKRAMA SAKRAMA SCHEME of government of karnataka legalizing illegal constructions , land encroachments, MUDA , BDA , MCC , KIADB officials evicted , demolished buildings of encroachers who didn’t cough up bribes. The one who paid bribes , their encroachments , illegal buildings survived and now getting legalized by government.

11. Now , as per equity who ever have been evicted from encroachments , who’s illegal buildings demolished must get compensation from government. If not all encroachers must be evicted & illegal buildings must be demolished.

12. Now  Karnataka High Court  has given green signal to  “AKRAMA SAKRAMA” scheme of government of Karnataka , therby HC Judges are favoring land mafia , criminals.

13. It is the duty of the government  , Police & Court  to  give protection  to journalists , whistle blowers , RTI Activists  who are unearthing  truths , crimes. But  all of them have failed in their duties  to protect RTI Activist Mr.Srinath of Mysuru who was brutally murdered.

14. Recently  Karnataka high court  gave  clearance to Karnataka government’s  regularization of illegal buildings  ( AKRAMA  SAKRAMA ) scheme.

a.  Law is one & same for all.

b.  Government  authorities , police razes down , demolishes  small temporary hutments built by tribals , dalits without  mercy ,  takes suo motto action.  No  court comes to their rescue.

c. Till date  bagar hukum  lands  are not given to dalits , tribals  are not given land rights over their huts in forests. Is Cout  blind , deaf ?

d. However  when rich crooks build  bungalows , commercial complexes  illegally , no suo motto action  taken by government authorizes , police , why ? Courts go a step further it gives  stay orders against demolition  of rich crook’s illegal buildings , asks government to modify plan , law itself  to save illegal buildings of rich crooks.

e. Does Karnataka HC  has  details of exact number of building violations , buildings built on forest lands , lake beds , raja kaluves  with  respective  after  affects on neighbouring buildings , road traffic , ecology , etc  and contingency plan by authorities to overcome those  after affects  casewise backed by technical studies. Make it public.

f. What criminal  action initiated against revenue , police & other officials  who failed in their  duties at the first instance  to stop the  illegal building construction.

g. Small houses  of  poor people  who have  smaller building violations  but  who failed to bribe officials  were dealt mercilessly. Their houses were razed down . Now , will the HC order the government to compensate them , to rebuild houses for them  as the court is now saying they are legal now.

h. Government & HC has given a  cut  off  date  for consideration of  regularization of illegal buildings. When a crime before that cut off date becomes legal , why cann’t it be legal  after that date ?

i. What  guarantee  HC gives no illegal  buildings  has  come up after cut off date  and will never come in future ?

j. If comes what criminal action  against the concerned officials ?

Bottomline : Judges open your eyes , listen , think & then act.




2. Question(s) of Law:

Is robbing another’s property right , legal ? is robbing land , lake – a public property for private , individual use right ? 

Is it  NOT  the  duty  of Police , Court & Government  to  protect Rights , Lives  of  Journalists , Whistle Blowers , RTI  Activists and their family ?

Why   they failed to protect  the life of  Mysuru RTI Activist  Mr. Srinath ? 

3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , Prosecution of master minds of land grabbing ,frauds and related crimes.


4. Averment: 

Covering up Land Frauds & Land Mafia . Please read details at :

RTI  ACTIVIST’S   MURDER :  POLICE  DETAIN  6  FOR  QUESTIONING 



RTI activist Srinath

Mysuru, Dec. 31 - Six persons have been detained for questioning in the murder of Srinath, a Mysuru-based RTI activist. They were detained this morning based on the clues provided by Srinath’s family members that the RTI activist had faced threats from the corrupt as he had exposed their illegal dealings.

The 36-year-old Srinath, a resident of Rajarajeshwarinagar in city, was murdered in Srirangapatna and his body was found yesterday below the bridge that connects Karighatta and Ganjam. His body including face, legs and private parts bore deep injuries.

The six detained persons include an engineer whose house was recently raided by Anti Corruption Bureau in Mysuru where crores of rupees worth properties were recovered, his driver and four others from BEML Layout who were at loggerheads with Srinath. Though the Police are tight-lipped about the detention, sources told Star of Mysore that they are being questioned at an undisclosed location and clues to the murder might emerge by today evening.

Srinath was active in exposing the corrupt through his RTI activism and had earned the wrath of the rich and the corrupt who saw him as a roadblock for their illegal activities.

He used to fight injustice by collecting information and had made RTI a powerful weapon.

Srinath had also exposed how BEML Layout was built without permission from the Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA). Through RTI, he had waged a war against some persons since the last three years for building a layout without mandatory permission from MUDA. This issue had even reached the Saraswathipuram Police Station where compromise meetings were held.

City Police Commissioner Dr. A Subramanyeshwara Rao, Deputy Commissioner (Law and Order) Dr. H.T. Shekar and KR ACP C. Mallik visited the murder spot this morning and held a meeting with in-charge Inspector of Srirangapatna Police Station M.K. Deepak and Sub-Inspector Puneet. The case will be investigated by Srirangapatna Police, sources said.

Speaking to Star of Mysore at the MMCR&I mortuary where the post-mortem of Srinath’s body was conducted this morning, his brothers V. Srinivas and Pradeep said that the RTI activist had faced threat from the MUDA engineer and some persons from BEML Layout whose Khata was not issued by MUDA due to illegality.

“All of them had openly threatened our brother and we suspect their involvement in the murder. We have also given their names to the Police,” they said.

Soon after the murder case was registered yesterday, the Police visited Srinath’s house at Rajarajeshwarinagar and recovered many documents regarding the controversial BEML Layout. Also, many documents regarding other corrupt officers have been recovered, sources said.

Yesterday, Srinath’s body was spotted by some passers-by and in-charge Inspector of Srirangapatna Police Station M.K. Deepak found the body wrapped in four bed sheets. A pit had been dug near the body where turmeric, kumkum, eggs and other items were found.

According to the Police, these items were usually used in black magic and as Dec. 30 (Thursday) was a New Moon (amavasye) the killers would have placed the items to mislead the investigation team.

The Police also suspect that the assailants might have dumped the body near the river after killing him elsewhere.

Srinath had gone out from his house on Thursday evening on his bike (KA-09-HH-5332) and when his brother V. Srinivas had called him up at 7.30 pm Srinath had replied that he was heading towards the house of building supervisor Kumar at Vijayanagar and would return soon.

As Srinath did not return and both of his mobile phones were switched off, the family members had lodged a missing person complaint at the Kuvempunagar Police Station. Srinath’s mobile phones and bike have not yet been recovered.

7.      Does this scheme also benefit rich people above BPL ?

8.      Does this scheme also benefit big land developers , land developing companies ?

9.      To my previous RTI appeals to MUDA , BDA only partial information was given , conveniently hiding the truth. Is it not violation of RTI act ?

13.  https://sites.google.com/site/sosevoiceforjustice/land-grabbers-in-m-u-d-a  ,

11. in how many cases of such illegal occupation MUDA / MCC / GOVERNMENT has legalized , regularized such illegal occupation just through MUDA's / MCC's resolution instead of of reallotting the same through public notification to the next senior most in the waiting list , after giving notice of allotment cancellation to original allottee ? if not done so why ?

MUDA / MCC / GOVERNMENT is in the practice of levying a pittance as penalty on the building byelaw violators , layout Development plan violators & legalizing those
violations. Safety of public & amenities of public are totally neglected by MUDA / MCC / GOVERNMENT .

Whereas , when cronies of political bigwigs illegally occupy BDA / BBMNP / KIADB / GOVERNMENT lands worth crores of rupees & build big complexes earning thousands of rupees monthly rent , BDA / BBMNP / KIADB / GOVERNMENT or authorities not even files police complaint against them instead regularizes the illegal occupation by levying a pittance as fine.

Honourable Chief Secretary , Government of Karnataka & Others 

....Respondents 



PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA. 


To ,
Hon'ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship's Companion
Justices of the Supreme Court of India. The Humble petition of the
Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :
1. Facts of the case:
"Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for
power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed." Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt public servants. 

2. Eventhough , I have repeatedly appealed to government of karnataka authorities , MUDA , BDA , KIADB , MCC , BBMNP , etc seeking information regarding illegal buildings , land encroachments specifically in mysore & bangalore , they didn’t provide me information. Now one land scam after another are tumbling out. 

3. I have given certain details to authorities including judiciary , SCI regarding land , lake encroachments in mysore when encroachment was at preliminary stage. The authories could have stopped it , but they didn,t. Now , the hinkal lake , hebbal lake , hootagalli lake & BEML Quarters lake have been encroached to maximum extent and criminals have made crores of rupees profit. 

4. Government authorities has not given title deeds to tribals living in forest since centuries , government authorities has not given title deeds to landless people , dalits who are cultivating on government land since decades.

5. Government authorities , police immediately evict , take suo motto action when a poor family , nomadic family just erects a hutment on government land. The same public servants , police don’t take action when a rich crook palatial bungalow , business complex on government land , lake bed. Cann’t they see it. , they can but are hands in glove with looters.

6. even some of the judges don’t take action when appeal for justice is made to them , to evict encroachers , to stop encroachment. It may be quid pro quo arrangement with crooks. See how many judges have benefitted from government discretionary quota allotment of sites , illegal judicial layout , etc.

7. The land encroachers are not poor people below poverty line , they don’t even have ability to build a pucca house. Encroachers are rich crooks , greedy individuals with political connection. So they don’t deserve compassion.

8. Now , government of karnataka is trying to legalise illegalities in buildings , land encroachments , which gives a booster dose to criminals to commit more crimes.

9. As per equitable law if present land encroachments are legalized , in future too government must legalize future land encroachments when ever it takes place.

10. Prior to enactment of AKRAMA SAKRAMA SCHEME of government of karnataka legalizing illegal constructions , land encroachments, MUDA , BDA , MCC , KIADB officials evicted , demolished buildings of encroachers who didn’t cough up bribes. The one who paid bribes , their encroachments , illegal buildings survived and now getting legalized by government.

11. Now , as per equity who ever have been evicted from encroachments , who’s illegal buildings demolished must get compensation from government. If not all encroachers must be evicted & illegal buildings must be demolished.




2. Question(s) of Law:

Is robbing another’s property right , legal ? is robbing land , lake – a public property for private , individual use right ? 


3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , Prosecution of master minds of land grabbing ,frauds. 


4. Averment: 

Covering up Land Frauds & Land Mafia . Please read details at :

https://sites.google.com/site/sosevoiceforjustice/rti-first-appeal---muda-bda-kiadb ,


Hereby , I do request the honorable supreme court of India to consider this as a PIL for : “writ of Mandamus” and to issue instructions to the concerned public servants in the following cases to perform their duties & to answer the questions. 


The Petitioner has sent many letters / appeals / petitions to supreme court of india & other courts through e-mail , DARPG website & through regular mail requesting them to consider those as PILs. But none ofthem were admitted , even acknowledgement for receipts were not given. See How duty conscious ,our judges are & see how our judges are sensitive towards life , liberty of citizens , commonmen & see howcareless our judges are towards anti national crimes , crimes worth crores of rupees. That the present petitioner has not filed any other petition (which are admitted by courts) in any High Court or the Supreme Court of India on the subject matter of the present petition.

PRAYER:
In the above premises, it is prayed that this Hon'ble Court may be pleased:


a . Hereby , I do request the honorable supreme court of India to consider this as a PIL for : “writ of Mandamus” and to issue instructions to the concerned public servants , Government of Karnataka authorities in the following cases to perform their duties & to answer the questions.
b . to pass such other orders and further orders as may be deemed necessary on the facts and in the circumstances of the case. 

FOR WHICH ACT OF KINDNESS, THE PETITIONER SHALL BE DUTY BOUND, EVER PRAY.

Cell : 91 8970318202

It is the duty of Supreme Court of India to Protect , Guard the constitutional rights , fundamental rights of every Indian citizen . Since 25 years  I am  appealing  to SCI  about  issues concerning public welfare , national security , etc and as a result suffering injustices , my constitutional rights , human rights are repeatedly violated  but SCI is mum even when repeated appeals were made to it. Paradoxically , after these appeals for justice , I have suffered more injustices , attempts on my life were made ,  physically assaulted , livelihood  / jobs were  denied , news publication closed , press accreditation denied ,  received threatening  calls , blank calls, even to date  rough elements follow us , rough elements  scout  near home at mid night. Does  not these indicate some ties between rough elements & SCI  Judges ?

 

Public Interest Litigation is an appeal  for justice  to the courts , to redress  the injustices meted out to  the public.  Individual cases of injustices  pertaining to an individual are not covered under PIL, however  an individual an activist  who  is fighting for public causes  suffering  injustices  as a result of   his struggle  ,caused by powers that be to silence him  can club  his individual case under the public causes  (PIL ) he is  appealing.

 

Nowadays people of questionable character , integrity  are being selected to public posts , end result is present day india.  In the following web sites I have shown  few actual cases of crimes by judges & police , just imagine what type of justice common man gets.

Traitors  in   Indian  Judiciary & Police

Crimes  by  Khaki

https://www.scribd.com/document/334590032/Crimes-by-Khaki  ,

Police show full bravery , courage , use  full might of law while acting against innocents , commoners. Even  takes suo motto action. Frequently crosses legal limits  while acting against commoners like 3rd degree torture , arrest / search  , seizure without warrant , arrest in mid night , etc . While they are supposed to take action against rich crooks , their own corrupt colleagues  no suo motto action , delayed action inspite of complaint  allowing time for rich crook to get anticipatory bail , no 3rd degree torture on him , no arrest , search , seizure without warrant. Where is the bravery , courage of police ?

Judges show their full wisdom , apply rigid law book while  judging cases of commoners , take suo motto action  where as  cases involving rich crooks comes before them inspite of repeated PILs they don’t consider it , let alone take suo motto action. Judges make far fetched interpretations of law , ultimately benefitting the rich crook. Where is the wisdom of Judges ?


I ,NAGARAJA.M.R. hereby do declare that information given above are true to the best of my knowledge & belief. If i am repeatedly called to police station or else where for the sake of investigations , the losses i do incurr as a result like loss of wages , transportation , job , etc must be borne by the government. prevoiusly the police / IB personnel repeatedly called me the complainant (sufferer of injustices) to police station for questioning , but never called the guilty culprits , rich crooks , criminals even once to police station for questioning , as the culprits are high & mighty . this type of one sided questioning must not be done by police or investigating agencies . if anything untoward happens to me or to my family members like loss of job , meeting with hit & run accidents , loss of lives , death due to improper medical care , etc , the jurisdictional police together with above mentioned accussed public servants will be responsible for it. Even if criminal nexus levels fake charges , police file fake cases against me or my dependents to silence me , this complaint is & will be effective.

Powers that  be , higher ups have referred all my previous cases to police although in most of the cases  police don’t  have jurisdiction over it.  It  sends  a subtle message by police force to  the  complainant  to keep silent . In the remaining cases  which are under their jurisdiction police  don’t act against higher ups , high & mighty. In such cases police lack  practical powers , their hands are tied although they  are  honest.  As a end result , police  have repeatedly called   me to police station  number of  times  ( have never called guilty  influential persons even once)  took  statement  from  me and closed  the files.

 

Hereby , I do make it clear  the statements made by me  in my original petitions , PILs , news papers  , etc  while I was in  a free & fair atmosphere  are  TRUE  , over rides , prevails over all the statements made by me before police  earlier and  which will be made by me  in future before police.

 

If I or my family members or my dependents are denied our fundamental rights , human rights , denied proper medical care for ourselves , If anything untoward happens to me or to my dependents or to my family members – In such case Chief Justice of India together with the jurisdictional revenue & police officials will be responsible for it , in such case the government of india is liable to pay Rs. TWO crore as compensation to survivors of my family. if my whole family is eliminated by the criminal nexus ,then that compensation money must be donated to Indian Army Welfare Fund. Afterwards , the money must be recovered by GOI as land arrears from the salary , pension , property , etc of guilty police officials , Judges , public servants & Constitutional functionaries.

Editorial :  JAIL  the  Police & Judges

–  Human Rights Violations by  Judges & Police

 

The public servants & the government must be role models in law abiding acts , for others to emulate & follow. if a student makes a mistake it is excusable & can be corrected by the teacher. if the teacher himself makes a mistake , all  his students will do the same mistake. if a thief steals , he can be caught  , legally punished & reformed . if a police himself commits crime , many thieves go scot-free under his patronage.  even if a police , public servant commits a crime , he can be legally prosecuted & justice can be sought by the aggrieved.  just think , if a judge himself that too  of apex court of the land  himself  commits crime – violations of RTI Act , constitutional rights & human rights of public  and obstructs the public from performing their constitutional fundamental duties , what happens ?   

  Public Interest Litigation is an appeal  for justice  to the courts , to redress  the injustices meted out to  the public.  Individual cases of injustices  pertaining to an individual are not covered under PIL, however  an individual an activist  who  is fighting for public causes  suffering  injustices  as a result of   his struggle  ,caused by powers that be to silence him  can club  his individual case under the public causes  (PIL ) he is  appealing.

 

Nowadays people of questionable character , integrity  are being selected to public posts , end result is present day india.  In the following web sites I have shown  few actual cases of crimes by judges & police , just imagine what type of justice common man gets.

Police show full bravery , courage , use  full might of law while acting against innocents , commoners. Even  takes suo motto action. Frequently crosses legal limits  while acting against commoners like 3rd degree torture , arrest / search  , seizure without warrant , arrest in mid night , etc . While they are supposed to take action against rich crooks , their own corrupt colleagues  no suo motto action , delayed action inspite of complaint  allowing time for rich crook to get anticipatory bail , no 3rd degree torture on him , no arrest , search , seizure without warrant. Where is the bravery , courage of police ?

Judges show their full wisdom , apply rigid law book while  judging cases of commoners , take suo motto action  where as  cases involving rich crooks comes before them inspite of repeated PILs they don’t consider it , let alone take suo motto action. Judges make far fetched interpretations of law , ultimately benefitting the rich crook. Where is the wisdom of Judges ?

  

 

Our whole hearted respects to honest few in judiciary , police & public service who are an exception.

Judges & Police themselves must first learn to respect  human beings  as human beings. When you treat them like animals  they will also reciprocate do remember.  Or else  the almighty will ensure DOG’S DEATH to corrupt judges & police. On the D Day in the Almighty’s court  corrupt judges & police will face  ultimate punishment , no match fixing.

Judges & Police must do their constitutional duties  without bias , refer following case details and  act  :

I ,NAGARAJA.M.R. hereby do declare that information given above are true to the best of my knowledge & belief. If i am repeatedly called to police station or else where for the sake of investigations , the losses i do incurr as a result like loss of wages , transportation , job , etc must be borne by the government. prevoiusly the police / IB personnel repeatedly called me the complainant (sufferer of injustices) to police station for questioning , but never called the guilty culprits , rich crooks , criminals even once to police station for questioning , as the culprits are high & mighty . this type of one sided questioning must not be done by police or investigating agencies . if anything untoward happens to me or to my family members like loss of job , meeting with hit & run accidents , loss of lives , death due to improper medical care , etc , the jurisdictional police together with above mentioned accussed public servants will be responsible for it. Even if criminal nexus levels fake charges , police file fake cases against me or my dependents to silence me , this complaint is & will be effective. 

   Powers that  be , higher ups have referred all my previous cases to police although in most of the cases  police don’t  have jurisdiction over it.  It  sends  a subtle message by police force to  the  complainant  to keep silent . In the remaining cases  which are under their jurisdiction police  don’t act against higher ups , high & mighty. In such cases police lack  practical powers , their hands are tied although they  are  honest.  As a end result , police  have repeatedly called   me to police station  number of  times  ( have never called guilty  influential persons even once)  took  statement  from  me and closed  the files.  Hereby , I do make it clear  the statements made by me  in my original petitions , PILs , news papers  , etc  while I was in  a free & fair atmosphere  are  TRUE  , over rides , prevails over all the statements made by me before police  earlier and  which will be made by me  in future before police.


If I or my family members or my dependents are denied our fundamental rights , human rights , denied proper medical care for ourselves , If anything untoward happens to me or to my dependents or to my family members - In such case Chief Justice of India together with the jurisdictional revenue & police officials will be responsible for it , in such case the government of india is liable to pay Rs.

Access to Justice is a fundamental right guaranteed under Article 14 & 21 of Constitution: SC Constitution Bench

 

The Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court has held that access to Justice is a Fundamental Right guaranteed to citizens by Article 14 and Article 21 of the Constitution of India. The five Judge Bench comprising of Chief Justice of India T.S. Thakur, Justices Fakkir Mohamed Ibrahim Kalifulla, A.K. Sikri, S.A. Bobde, and R. Banumathi has made the above observation while answering a reference to it, which arose from Transfer Petitions, eleven seeking transfer of civil cases from or to the State of Jammu and Kashmir while the remaining two seek transfer of criminal cases from the State to Courts outside that State. The Bench further observed that if “life” implies not only life in the physical sense but a bundle of rights that makes life worth living, there is no juristic or other basis for holding that denial of “access to justice” will not affect the quality of human life so as to take access to justice out of the purview of right to life guaranteed under Article 21. “We have; therefore, no hesitation in holding that access to justice is indeed a facet of right to life guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution. The Citizen’s inability to access courts or any other adjudicatory mechanism provided for determination of rights and obligations is bound to result in denial of the guarantee contained in Article 14 both in relation to equality before law as well as equal protection of laws. Absence of any adjudicatory mechanism or the inadequacy of such mechanism, needless to say, is bound to prevent those looking for enforcement of their right to equality before laws and equal protection of the laws from seeking redress and thereby negate the guarantee of equality before laws or equal protection of laws and reduce it to a mere teasing illusion. Article 21 of the Constitution apart, access to justice can be said to be part of the guarantee contained in Article 14 as well.”, the Bench added. ESSENCE OF ACCESS TO JUSTICE According to the Bench the following are the four main facets that constitute the essence of access to justice (i) The need for adjudicatory mechanism: One of the most fundamental requirements for providing to the citizens access to justice is to set-up an adjudicatory mechanism whether described as a Court, Tribunal, Commission or Authority or called by any other name whatsoever, where a citizen can agitate his grievance and seek adjudication of what he may perceive as a breach of his right by another citizen or by the State or any one of its instrumentalities. In order that the right of a citizen to access justice is protected, the mechanism so provided must not only be effective but must also be just, fair and objective in its approach. So also the procedure which the court, Tribunal or Authority may adopt for adjudication, must, in itself be just and fair and in keeping with the well recognized principles of natural justice. (ii) The mechanism must be conveniently accessible in terms of distance: The forum/mechanism so provided must, having regard to the hierarchy of courts/tribunals, be reasonably accessible in terms of distance for access to justice since so much depends upon the ability of the litigant to place his/her grievance effectively before the court/tribunal/court/competent authority to grant such a relief.  (iii) The process of adjudication must be speedy. “Access to justice” as a constitutional value will be a mere illusion if justice is not speedy. Justice delayed, it is famously said, is justice denied. If the process of administration of justice is so time consuming, laborious, indolent and frustrating for those who seek justice that it dissuades or deters them from even considering resort to that process as an option, it would tantamount to denial of not only access to justice but justice itself. In Sheela Barse’s case (supra) this Court declared speedy trial as a facet of right to life, for if the trial of a citizen goes on endlessly his right to life itself is violated. There is jurisprudentially no qualitative difference between denial of speedy trial in a criminal case, on the one hand, and civil suit, appeal or other proceedings, on the other, for ought we know that civil disputes can at times have an equally, if not, more severe impact on a citizen’s life or the quality of it. Access to Justice would, therefore, be a constitutional value of any significance and utility only if the delivery of justice to the citizen is speedy, for otherwise, the right to access to justice is no more than a hollow slogan of no use or inspiration for the citizen. It is heartening to note that over the past six decades or so the number of courts established in the country has increased manifold in comparison to the number that existed on the day the country earned its freedom. There is today almost invariably a court of Civil Judge junior or senior division in every taluka and a District and Sessions Judge in every district. In terms of accessibility from the point of view of distance which a citizen ought to travel, we have come a long way since the time the British left the country. However, the increase in literacy, awareness, prosperity and proliferation of laws has made the process of adjudication slow and time consuming primarily on account of the over worked and under staffed judicial system, which is crying for creation of additional courts with requisite human resources and infrastructure to effectively deal with an ever increasing number of cases being filed in the courts and mounting backlog of over thirty million cases in the subordinate courts. While the States have done their bit in terms of providing the basic adjudicatory mechanisms for disposal of resolution of civil or criminal conflicts, access to justice remains a big question mark on account of delays in the completion of the process of adjudication on account of poor judge population and judge case ratio in comparison to other countries. (iv) The process of adjudication must be affordable to the disputants: Access to justice will again be no more than an illusion if the adjudicatory mechanism provided is so expensive as to deter a disputant from taking resort to the same. Article 39-A of the Constitution promotes a laudable objective of providing legal aid to needy litigants and obliges the State to make access to justice affordable for the less fortunate sections of the society.

 

 

CJAR Demands In-House Enquiry Against Justice C.V. Nagarjuna Reddy For Alleged Atrocities Against Dalits

BY: APOORVA MANDHANI

 

In a letter addressed to the Chief Justice of India, the Campaign for Judicial Accountability and Reforms has sought initiation of an In-House enquiry against Justice C.V. Nagarjuna Reddy for alleged atrocities against the Dalit community. The representation refers to allegations of Dalit atrocities and criminal misconduct by the Judge against Mr.Rama Krishna, former Principal Junior Civil Judge, Rayachoti, Kadappa District, currently under suspension. Mr. Krishna had alleged that he was forced by Justice Reddy to remove the name of Mr. Pavan Kumar Reddy who happens to be the brother of Justice Reddy, from a dying declaration recorded by Mr. Rama Krishna when he was posted as Magistrate in Rayachoti. Rayachoti, in Kadappa District is the native place of Justice C.V. Nagarjuna Reddy and his brother Mr. Pavan Kumar Reddy is the Additional Public Prosecutor at Rayachoti courts. The dying declaration had incriminated Mr. Pavan Kumar Reddy, allegedly disclosing that he had doused him with kerosene and set him on fire for not agreeing to sign on a blank paper. It is also alleged that subsequent to the recording of the declaration, Justice Reddy purportedly threatened and abused Mr. Krishna, when he refused to remove his brother’s name from the dying declaration. It has also been alleged that the Magistrate was later summoned to Justice Reddy’s house, where he was beaten up and abused. The Magistrate then approached the High Court Vigilance Registrar, and submitted a written complaint, namingvarious Officers of Court at Rayachoty, who were indulged in illegal acts, misplacing court records and making files disappear. No action was however taken by the High Court on the said complaint. A complaint was also filed with the Chief Justice of the Andhra Pradesh High court and the Chief Justice of India. The representation further makes reference to a series of unexplained transfers and suspension, claiming that he was being harassment for complaining against Justice Reddy and his brothers. Furthermore, the representation alleges that the appointment of Justice Reddy’s brother as the Additional Public Prosecutor was in contravention of the provisions of Section 24 of the Criminal Procedure Code, which mandates that a person who has been practicing as an advocate for not less than seven years is eligible to be appointed as Additional Public Prosecutor. This requirement was not fulfilled in the case of Mr. Pavan Kumar Reddy. Listing down several other instances of nepotism and Dalit atrocities, CJAR therefore demands that an in-house enquiry be initiated and that pending enquiry, no judicial work be allotted to Justice Reddy.

 

 

Misconducting judges

BY: SAUMYA DEV

 

Recently, country witnessed the most unimaginable act of bravado from a sitting judge of a High Court. Recommendation for appointment of 12 judges by the collegium in the Madras High Court was questioned by Advocates and their Writ Petition was being heard by a Bench comprising of Justices V Dhanapalan and K Sasidharan. Justice Karnan, sitting judge of the same court, a man not unknown to controversies, barged into the courtroom and started making allegations in open court expressing his objections to the manner of appointment of those 12 judges. He had many other avenues to channelize his feelings, the avenues well within the four corners of judicial conduct expected from a constitutional functionary. And yet he chose this convenient option of whimsical conduct. Had been a member of subordinate judiciary, he would have been shown the door by now. No action can seemingly be taken against a sitting judge when he decides to barge into court room whilst the proceedings are in force and hurl allegations, other than transferring him to another High Court. And even this form of punishment and its form of implementation will not fail to amuse one for its absurdity. There is a general perception in the judicial community that High Court Benches of North-Eastern States are meant for accommodating such judges, which effectively demean such High Courts. Is such High Courts any inferior, or are those areas any less a part of India? These questions remain yet to be answered. Misconduct of Judges of High Court and Supreme Court is a problem with no tangible solution so far. Lawyers may boycott, the public may protest, vigilante namesake committee could be set, unrealistic impeachment proceedings may be initiated, errant judges may be transferred, and nothing beyond. We have enough provisions for disciplining the subordinate judiciary, the High Court is vested with power of superintendence. On the other hand, no disciplinary action can be taken against the judges of the Supreme Court and High Court. Let us hope that the impending the Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill, 2010 may address many areas of concern. The Constitution provides that judges of the High Courts and Supreme Court can be removed only by Parliament on the basis of a motion in either the Lok Sabha or the Rajya Sabha. The existing procedure for investigation into allegations of misbehaviour or incapacity of Supreme Court and High Court judges is given in the Judges (Inquiry) Act, 1968 The 2010 Bill replaces the Judges (Inquiry) Act, 1968 and avowed objects are (a) create enforceable standards for the conduct of judges of High Courts and the Supreme Court, (b) change the existing mechanism for investigation into allegations of misbehaviour or incapacity of judges of High Courts and the Supreme Court, (c) change the process of removal of judges, (d) enable minor disciplinary measures to be taken against judges, and (e) require the declaration of assets of judges. It is interesting to study the allegations of misconduct of members of the Constitutional Courts. Studying such instances gives an insight into faulty foundation of our judicial system. In an affidavit filed in Supreme Court by Shanti Bhushan, Senior Advocate who was the Union Law Minister in post emergency period, made a shocking allegation that 8 out 16 Chief Justices we had, were corrupt. In the light of such a revelation, there are two possibilities before the Court to salvage the prestige of Indian judiciary, either convict Shanti Bhshan or order investigation against those 8. Both are not happening in reality except a slow moving contempt proceedings. Why so ? The root of the problem lies in selection method of judges. It saddening to see that many judges of our constitutional courts behave without grace and majesty expected from them. There have been incidents of exorbitant display of rage by the judges acting in impulse against the lawyers. It has now become a common feature in Courts to see Judges and Lawyers argue in a heated atmosphere and judges use words not befitting to the seat they occupy. It is difficult to bring in such misconducts within a legislative framework and find solution. We have seen Punjab and Haryana High Court judges taking mass casual leave to protest against it’s then Chief Justice who allegedly withdrew cases from the board of judges without their notice. It may be difficult to decide here, which instance is worse, the CJI arbitrarily withdrawing cases or the judges resorting to such tactics without paying regard to the court decorum. What ultimately matters is the quality of men and women. Recently, a national daily reported habit of late sitting of a sitting Supreme Court judge. Whatever may be the reasons justifications for continued late sitting, judiciary must have a known system to govern and Court hours should not be judge centric. Most often, Rules and discipline are made by judges according to their personal choice and no one can even beg to differ with the ways of their lordships. We must have uniform court procedure. In the Apex Court, some of the Judges had imposed a Rule that ‘ no Passover for the first ten matters’. Though it caused great inconvenience to the lawyers, the ‘obedient bar’ religiously followed for the fear of displeasing their lordships. Judges remarks to arguments of a lawyer that “don’t give lecture to us”, is thoroughly non-judicial and condemnable, but lawyers for professional sake condone it and move on. What is depressing is that majority of Senior Lawyers swallow such ignominy without a murmur. The press is silent in such aspects for fear of contempt power which is is exploited to bury criticism. It was only after a mass uproar that truth became an exception to the Contempt of Courts Act. There are criticisms on the exercise of contempt jurisdiction, and it is always judge centric. Contempt for one judge need not be contempt for another.So while in the case of P N Dudav v P Shiv Shankar (AIR 1988 SC 1208 at 1213), a cabinet minister was let go off even when he called the judiciary to be full of anti social elements, in the case of Mohd Zahir Khan V. Vyai Singh (AIR 1992 SC 642), a poor man was charged with contempt for calling the judiciary with the same label. And while one may be tempted to argue that it is impossible to completely dispense with discretion, it would be worthwhile to remind ourselves of the fact that judicial discretion coupled with judicial misconduct and the knowledge that one could get away with the same, would be a lethal weapon for judicial disarray. What really amounts to judicial conduct as embossed in the Oath of the judges as given in the third schedule of the constitution, or the Restatement of Values of Judicial Life, 1999’ a code of conduct adopted for the judges, by the judges or the Bangalore Principles of Judicial Conduct, 2002. Judges have to abide by the principles of natural justice, be impartial in their judgments or actions while the proceedings are going on. They cannot act upon personal idiosyncrasies, personal bias or whimsical behavior. They have to be consistent in their conduct. They have to rise above narrow considerations and not be prone to external influences or political pressures. Their act cannot prejudice the course of justice or life of any man. They have to mandatorily follow the procedure established by law. They have to be well versed and conversant with the facts of the case and permit unbiased hearing from both sides. Unending cross examinations or infinite arguments cannot form a part of the platter of a judge. A judge has to dissociate himself of all forms of social interactions with persons involved with the case. Now let us consider the real world scenario. In many instances, the judge’s kith and kin become biggest tax payers and busy practitioners during their serving period. It is a common knowledge that in every court in the country, some lawyers are more equal before some judges. Judges should realize that their proximity in some manner is being professionally encashed by a shameless lawyer. It is obviously an ugly seen to watch a designated Senior Lawyer appearing only in one particular court in many matters when he is not engaged in other courts. The Bar Council of India Rules, 1975 in Rule 6, Chapter II mandate that an advocate shall not enter appearance, act, plead or practice in any way before a court, Tribunal or Authority, if the sole or any member thereof is related to the advocate as father, grandfather, son, grand-son, uncle, brother, nephew, first cousin, husband, wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, brother-in-law daughter-in-law or sister-in-law. The law commission in its 230th report has criticized this practice of Uncle Judges. “Often we hear complaints about ‘Uncle Judges’. If a person has practised in a High Court, say, for 20-25 years and is appointed a Judge in the same High Court, overnight change is not possible. He has his colleague advocates – both senior and junior – as well as his kith and kin, who had been practising with him. Even wards of some District Judges, elevated to a High Court, are in practice in the same High Court. ..The equity demands that the justice shall not only be done but should also appear to have been done… In any case, the judges, whose kith and kin are practising in a High Court, should not be posted in the same High Court. This will eliminate “Uncle Judge”. There are many undefined misconducts such as Retiring judges delivering judgments in haste or not delivering judgments at all, delay in delivering judgments etc. A new form of misconduct has born these days, thanks to the media, the Judges commenting on their own judgments post retirement. Judges after having rendered judgments become functus officio in reference to those judgments and should not come up with comments post their retirement. Justice A K Ganguly’s startling rejoinder clarifying and defending the 2G judgment after the same was critized by Lok Sabha speaker, Somnath Chatterjee, was a rather unwarranted affair, as the same could potentially interfere with the precedential value of the judgmen. We need to develop a uniform court procedure and eliminate the personality driven functioning of Judges. Our courts should be more open to public scrutiny. The video recording of court procedure is a good measure to make our judges and lawyers more accountable. We don’t have the system of recording of arguments, unless judges take note of it. It is humanly not possible to remember every word and submissions in all matters and the causality is non consideration of certain points while rendering the judgment. Unlimited and unchecked judicial power, if not bestowed with the right men and women, is bound to cause mischief. Judiciary has fiercely guarded its independence. Rule of law indeed mandates the same. And yet a proper judicial mechanism for addressing the judicial complaints is consistent with the principles of judicial independence. Code of Ethics is a self regulatory tool. May be as evidenced above, it is not a sufficient check. They often say “What cannot be cured must be endured”. It is hard to do that when it relates to important tenets of civil society like Rule of Law and the Sanctity of Justice. Thus it is time that there is someone who could judge these erring and despotic Judges. In the words of Justice M N Venkatachaliah “Sunlight is the best defense”.

 

 

We the People

Reimagining Judicial Reform

 

When the judiciary and the centre argue about the need for transparency and accountability, it seems that both envision these as duties only towards each other, and not towards society generally. This myopia is evident throughout the history of their struggle into the present-day: neither has focused on making information public, let alone thought of other ways to involve a broad cross section of the people, even as this is becoming more commonplace worldwide.

This year, Constitution Day became the latest front in one of the most hotly debated constitutional battles in our history—the tussle between the judiciary and executive over judicial appointments. Using the rather odd metaphor of constitutional Lakshman Rekhas, signifying the separation of powers between the two branches, senior leaders on both sides spent the day insinuating that the other had overstepped its bounds by trying to control appointments (Choudhary 2016). As has become a familiar pattern, the entire exchange centred merely on this, and there was little discussion of the boundaries that matter most to common people, who should presumably be the centre of all constitutional debates—boundaries that bar access to both information and justice.

Such an absence of people-centred measures marks most of the exchanges between the judiciary and executive in the last year, ever since the former struck down the National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC), which the latter had proposed to replace the judicial collegium in making appointments. In the ensuing deadlock over pending high court appointments and finalisation of the Memorandum of Procedure (MoP), which sets out criteria for judicial appointments, Supreme Court judges have repeatedly blamed the centre for overburdening courts by delaying appointments. This is even though an alarming number of seats have remained vacant across courts for years before the NJAC case—a failure for which the judiciary is equally responsible. The centre, for its part, has blamed the high courts for delaying the appointments process and the MoP, while helpfully clarifying that it is not playing any “blame game” (Indian Express 2016).

In this seemingly singular focus on trying to pass responsibility to the other, we see little sense of either branch’s responsibility to the people. While the Supreme Court rather uncharacteristically solicited suggestions for the framing of the MoP from bar associations and civil society groups, the current MoP that is being negotiated between the two branches remains under wraps, making it clear that public consultation on the MoP is not a priority for either (LiveLaw 2016).

We argue that in bandying about the need for transparency and accountability, it seems that both the centre and the judiciary envision these as duties only towards each other, and not towards society generally. This myopia is evident throughout the history of their struggle into the present-day: neither branch of government has focused on making information public, let alone thought of other ways to involve a broad cross section of the people, even as this is becoming more commonplace worldwide. In continuously trying to blame each other for various woes in judicial administration, both have neglected to acknowledge their own failures—in clogging up courts with excessive litigation, for instance, or neglecting to assess judicial merit regularly. Recentring the people in all these discussions can turn the current crisis into an occasion to create systemic, lasting change.

Contested Constitutional Space

The debate between the judiciary and the executive has always centred on primacy, arguably at the expense of civil society and its stake in appointments. In all the landmark judges’ cases, in which the Supreme Court interpreted constitutional provisions on judicial appointment, the main issue was which branch of government had greater control. The first judges’ case came to the Court after a bitter period in judiciary–executive relations, with the executive making controversial appointments and transfers, and judges protesting perceived threats to their independence (Divan 2013). In that case, the Supreme Court held that the executive’s view would prevail over the chief justice’s in matters of judicial transfer and appointment (S P Gupta v President of India & Ors, 1981). In the second and third judges’ case, the apex court reversed this ruling and elaborated the collegium procedures that currently govern appointments, giving primacy to the judiciary to protect its independence and insulating it from political interference (Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record Association & Anr v Union of India, 1993; In re: Appointment and Transfer of Judges). Civil society received slightly greater attention in the NJAC or fourth judges’ case since, in addition to judicial and executive representatives, the commission comprised two eminent laypersons, to give some space to public participation (Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record Association and Ors v Union of India, 2015). But the narrow framing of civil society’s role, and the suggested mode of appointment of these eminent persons, came with its own set of problems. Remarkably, the behaviour of the centre and Supreme Court collegium, following the NJAC judgment, indicates that the key concern for both remains control, and not necessarily the people.

Opaque and Exclusionary Appointments

The problem with such a narrow debate is that even if the two branches were to resolve their dispute overnight, it is unlikely that either transparency or accountability would improve meaningfully for the public. The few people-oriented measures in current discourse are limited to talk of disclosing information on candidates recommended for appointment and publishing minutes of appointment proceedings. While this seems like an obvious measure, attaining even this would be a significant achievement in the Indian context. The judiciary has never made such information public, and has purposefully resisted providing related information as well. For instance, it was only after facing intense pressure from the public and from some judges for years that the Supreme Court began uploading its judges’ assets on the Court website. Despite not being covered under any exception, the judiciary has managed to keep itself out of the purview of the Right to Information (“RTI”) Act for over 10 years, by arguing that disclosure of information under RTI could interfere with judicial independence (Bhushan 2009).

This question is still pending, and was referred to a Constitution Bench earlier this year (India Today 2016). While some appointments or judiciary-related information might certainly be too sensitive to make public, the Indian judiciary has responded to this concern by systematically blocking all access to information, instead of selectively keeping some data classified and opening up debate on this classification.

The centre has not been much better at making appointment-related information public. Of the 77 names recommended by the collegium for high court appointments, it recently returned 43 to the judiciary for reconsideration, without divulging any reasons to the public. Much later, the centre clarified its objections to news agencies in extremely vague phrases such as “serious complaints” and “adverse intelligence reports.” The collegium reiterated almost all of the returned names within a week, leaving little time for the reconsideration it had been asked to carry out, and current law dictates that reiterated judges must be appointed (Times of India 2016). With the rest of the country being kept in the dark as to the exact nature of these complaints and their resolution, how can the judiciary or the executive hope to retain public trust and legitimacy in the eyes of the people?

This is in sharp contrast to several other countries like Argentina and the United Kingdom (UK), where publicising appointments-related information is a minimum requirement. Since 2003, in response to a crisis of confidence in the judiciary, Argentina has required judicial nominees to disclose their assets, employers, and potential conflicts, and mandated the government to publish these in leading newspapers and official outlets (Herrero and López 2010). In the UK, the Judicial Appointments Commission regularly advertises vacancies, compiles detailed statistics on its appointments, uploads minutes of meetings on selection mechanisms and so forth. Both the judiciary and executive in India have not only failed to implement this minimum and make appointment proceedings publicly accessible, but they have also failed to imagine going beyond this, to make proceedings participatory. In countries such as Kenya and the United States, government bodies invite law associations to evaluate judicial candidates, and welcome comments from the general public as well (Opiyo 2011; University of Cape Town 2010). Yet others like South Africa even accept nominations from the public, and allow the media and any member of the public to sit in on interviews of candidates, enabling people’s active participation in appointment processes (University of Cape Town 2010). Encouraging broad-based participation has evident benefits: it could reveal that a wide section of lawyers support a candidate’s integrity, legitimising her appointment; or it could allow academics, civil society organisations, or even litigants to raise concerns about her commitment to constitutional values.

Moving beyond Appointments

The anxiety over ceding primacy to the other has sidelined measures either branch can take, independent of each other, to demonstrate real commitment to the oft-repeated buzzwords of transparency, independence, merit, and accountability. Even if our judicial appointment processes were to make room for civil society inputs, it would be impossible for the public to have informed opinions on a judge’s suitability in the absence of systematic and transparent performance evaluation. Assessing judicial performance through periodic reviews is a common practice internationally, and in the Indian lower judiciary. But our higher judiciary has studiously failed to evolve internal mechanisms to appraise Supreme Court and high court judges. Subordinate judges are subject to periodic checks through annual confidential reports (ACRs), which suffer from some imperfections—such as a lack of uniformity and objectivity—but it provides a framework for assessing judges on various objective and subjective criteria. The higher judiciary must prioritise evolving such holistic metrics, and subject its conduct and capability to regular checks as well. This is particularly important for Supreme Court and high court judges, since they determine questions of constitutional importance and since a significant number of them are direct appointees from the bar, whose ability to adjudicate has previously not been subject to review.

The higher judiciary’s actions, unfortunately, seem to suggest that while it expects accountability from other organs of government, it does not hold itself to the same standard. But the exclusion of civil society from appointments increases the judiciary’s burden to be accountable to it, and such accountability would be meaningless if it were granted only at the stage of appointments and the system made completely opaque afterwards. Even if courts deem that these evaluations are too sensitive to be disclosed in full, they can still hold the judiciary accountable to the people in other ways, by providing a robust feedback mechanism to litigants and lawyers, so that they can contribute to the evaluations.

A genuine commitment to people-centric reform would also involve addressing the over-representation of privileged elites and dominant caste groups. Continuing structures of hereditary privilege, and gendered expectations of career choice, have ensured that women and people from socially and economically marginalised groups remain underrepresented in the judiciary. While recommending candidates, judges have been informally advised to duly consider suitable candidates from amongst Other Backward Classes (OBCs), Scheduled Castes (SCs), Scheduled Tribes (STs), minorities and women, but this seems to have had little effect on their inclusion (Chawla 1999).

The judiciary has often taken on significant social justice causes, but if its internal elevation does not reflect the same self-professed commitment, the public can rightly question its legitimacy and authority in claiming to uphold civil society’s interests. Reservations do exist for certain groups in the subordinate judiciary, and their promotions are supposed to be based on merit. But there have been several allegations of caste-based discrimination against high court judges who evaluate and determine the career progression of subordinate judges, which makes it hard to place complete confidence in the fact that deserving, meritorious judges will be elevated to higher judiciary posts. For instance, in 2011, the Chhattisgarh High Court ordered the compulsory retirement of 17 SC and ST judges for poor performance, while higher-caste judges with lower grading continued on the service (Umar 2011).

Further, a disproportionate number of higher court judges are appointed directly from the bar, since these appointments are governed by an informal and self-evolved 60:40 split between members of the bar and district judiciary (Kuldip Singh v Union of India, 2002). Combined with the self-appointing system, this has also resulted in several instances of sitting judges appointing close relatives, in clear violation of merit-based appointment principles. The creation of insulated judicial dynasties, where a reported 70% of all sitting high court judges come from the same 132 families, has made “climbing the ladder” practically impossible for others, especially women and people from marginalised groups who do not have access to the same networks of privilege (Indian Express 2014).

Against this backdrop, it is hardly surprising that only six women judges have been appointed to the Supreme Court in the past 66 years, and presently, there is one woman judge in the apex court out of 24. The latest data for high courts, from November 2015, presents a similar picture, with merely 62 female judges compared to 611 male judges (Nair 2015). An exact breakdown for caste composition is not available, though certain figures can shed light on the larger picture. In the last six years, no SC judge has been elevated to the Supreme Court, and as of May 2016, there were no SC chief justices in the high courts either (Chhibber 2016).

Legitimacy

Any democratic institution in a deeply divided society derives its legitimacy in the eyes of the public from its representation and inclusiveness. For this reason alone, judicial dynasties and structures that enable them must be disabled. Proactive measures are necessary to change modes of judicial training, career progression and socialisation that reinforce dominant attitudes, which compromise the neutrality and independence that the judiciary prides itself on. But despite several calls for such measures in this year alone, neither branch of the government has brought up this issue in any depth.

The executive too has failed to capitalise on opportunities underlying its stalemate with the judiciary, in focusing its energies on securing a veto in judges’ appointments. Granted, the executive has limited control over judicial matters, but there are still a number of initiatives within its powers that it can expedite. For decades, the government has issued documents recognising the potential of technology and citizen–centric services to transform access to justice, expedite justice–delivery, and improve accountability and transparency for litigants. But of the four pillars of the Technology for Justice Initiative (a part of the larger Digital India project)—namely, ePolice, eProsecution, eCourts, and ePrisons—only eCourts seems to have taken off meaningfully. Even this project has been characterised by flawed resource allocation, imprecise budgeting, and a lack of institutional coordination, leading to multiple delays in its completion. The executive’s failure to establish links and interoperability between the police, prison, and courtroom services means that digitisation and integration of India’s justice system remains a distant dream.

In recent spats with the judiciary, the centre has been quick to pass back any blame for delaying appointments and worsening court backlogs. For instance, the centre recently went as far as to cite how since 1990, it has made the second-highest number of appointments this year, far above the average (DNA 2016). But this statistic merits a closer look, since the increase in high court appointments this year is neither proportional to the increase in sanctioned judge strength nor litigating population. Absolving itself of blame, the centre continues to advise the judiciary on how to reduce backlog, by shortening vacations, etc, while itself burdening the courts with excessive government litigation! The executive had previously acknowledged the mechanical and inefficient manner in which government litigation is often pursued, and even formulated a National Litigation Policy in 2010. But ambiguous language and unmeasurable outcomes rendered the policy a mere piece of paper. Now, when the centre holds the judiciary to task for burgeoning backlogs, it develops selective amnesia about how government litigation, which is reportedly almost half of all litigation in courts, clogs up sparse judicial time and disadvantages other litigants.

The current struggle between the judiciary and executive is in some ways limited by its own history, a rehash of the same fights for control present since the early years of the republic. Both are ostensibly defending two different interpretations of a constitutional provision. But the debate is so entirely subsumed under a concern for primacy that it no longer seems to really hinge on the constitutional text, and it certainly does not centre on the people that the Constitution is about. The failure to imagine an expanded role for civil society is profoundly unjust towards the people these institutions are meant to serve, and often based on downright disdain. In the NJAC judgment, Justice Khehar wrote that civil society “is not yet sufficiently motivated, nor adequately determined, to be in a position to act as a directional deterrent, for the political-executive establishment” (Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record Association & Ors v Union of India, 2015). Ordinary citizens have been given only a dichotomy, between either executive or judicial dominance. It is in departing from this binary, and centring the conversation on the public, that any meaningful solutions to this tussle will lie.

Crimes by policemen, a matter of concern

 

By D V Guruprasad,  , Former DG & IGP Karnataka

 

 

Sometime ago, when Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal made a comment that “policemen are criminals in uniform”, there was outrage in the Delhi Police. A similar comment made earlier by a judge resulted in similar reactions. 

Recent incidents in Bengaluru involving policemen, both serving and retired, in criminal activities makes one feel that may be such comments are not entirely unfounded. In the last week alone, Bengaluru police arrested a retired deputy superintendent of police (DySP) and seven serving policemen on charges of robbing businessmen post demonetisation drive.

Few years ago, some police officers in Mysuru allegedly stopped a bus going to Kerala, detained a passenger and knocked off a huge amount of cash he was carrying. On his complaint, an investigation was conducted and some serving police officers were charged for the crime.

Earlier in the past, crimes alleged against police personnel used to centre around their corrupt activities or custodial violence. We had even heard of cases where stolen property recovered from the accused were misappropriated by unscrupulous police officers. 

However, policemen themselves planning and plotting robberies and dacoities were rare indeed. The fact that such incidents are now occurring frequently indicates that something is seriously wrong. 

There is no easy answer to the question as to why policemen turn criminals. Lure of quick and easy money, constant interaction with criminals and inherent behavioural problems may be cited as some reasons. 

But the larger question is how do such people get into the police force in the first place? Is there no system to screen such people from entering the system? Police recruitment does not have a system of identifying potential wrong doers. 

Usually physical efficiency test, written test and personal interviews are held for selection. Police departments of five states are now incorporating questions related to assessment of a person’s psychological makeup into the written test. 

But potential misfits are not flagged and removed based on their answers. In personal interviews of police sub-inspectors in Karnataka, a psychologist is part of the interview board. But no candidate seems to have been rejected based on the psychologist’s assessment.

Since it is difficult to prevent a person with criminal mind in getting selected into the police wing, it is incumbent upon police top bosses to inculcate values during induction training. While some states have introduced ethics as one of the subjects for police training, many still concentrate on subjects like law and police duties. 

It is also a well-known that police training does not get the importance it deserves. Hence even at this stage, undesirable persons do not usually get weeded out. 

If a person with a criminal mind manages to get selected and gets confirmed in the police force, the only way to make him pursue a path of law is by constant supervision. It is a pity there are no periodical assessments to gauge the mental makeup of a police constable or a sub-inspector. 

The department normally goes by whatever is written by seniors in the Annual Appraisal Reports (ARRs). More often, these reports are written routinely. In the armed forces or in the central police forces, an assessment of a person’s performance and mental makeup is periodically made and black sheep are mercilessly weeded out. 

As per the data of the National Crime Research Bureau (NCRB), the total number of criminal cases registered against policemen were 1,989 in 2013; 2,600 in 2014 and 5,526 in 2015. Of these 5,526 cases, Kerala itself accounted for 3,080 cases, whereas Karnataka reported only 84 cases. Considering that people in general do not make complaints against policemen in India, this figure is alarming. 

Rare punishments
Out of the 5,526 cases, 4,367 cases were charge sheeted and in 1,512 cases police personnel were arrested. However, the total number of police personnel convicted is only 25. These figures indicate that wrongdoers rarely get punished. 

Can such crimes be stopped? The answer is ‘no’. There will be black sheep in the department. However, such crimes can be minimised. 

This can be done by screening the applicants for police jobs by using well established psychometric tests, instilling strong sense of values during training and having periodic refresher training courses, taking strict action including dismissing from the service against those with criminal bent of mind and constantly monitoring the activities of at least those police men who come to adverse notice. 

Whistle blowers in the department need to be encouraged and protected. Efforts should be made to see that those police men charge sheeted for serious crimes do not escape punishment. 

Merely having a Police Complaints Authority in every state does not solve the problem. A system of policing the police needs to be introduced. If police leaders do not sit up and take corrective measures, the situation will go out of hand.

 

 

CRIMINALS IN POLICE UNIFORM
- An appeal to union home minister & Karnataka state home minister

The ABC of police force in India is apathy ,
brutality & corruption . in India, police are not impartially enforcing
law instead are working as hand maidens of rich & mighty. The corrupt
police officers are collecting protection money from criminals ,
collecting money to go slow on investigations , to file B- reports , to
fix innocents in fake cases , to murder innocents in lock-up /
encounters . they are hand in league with land mafia , today C.M of
Karnataka himself issued a warning to police officials about this.
Even in lock-ups , jails, the rich inmates bribe
officials get better food from outside , mobile phones , drugs , drinks
, cigareetes , etc. they get spacious cells & get best private medical
care . where as the poor inmates are even denied food , health care ,
living space as per the provisions of law. The corrupt jail officials
instigate rowdy elements in the jails to assault poor inmates & to toe
their line. More corrupt the police more wealthier he is. Even CBI
officials are no different. The only beacon of hope is still there are
few honest people left in the police force.
Hereby , e-voice urges you to make public the following
information in the interest of justice.

1.how many CBI officials & Karnataka state police officials are facing
charges of corruption , 3rd degree torture , lock-up/encounter deaths
, rapes , fake cases , etc ?

2.how you are monitoring the ever increasing wealth of corrupt police
officials?

3.how many officials from the ranks of constable to DGP have amassed
illegal wealth?

4.what action you have taken in these cases ? have you got
reinvestigated all the cases handled by tainted police?

5.how many policemen have been awarded death penalty & hanged till
death , for cold blooded murders in the form of lock-up deaths /
encounter deaths ?

6.why DGP of Karnataka is not registering my complaint dt 10/12/2004 ,
subsequent police complaints ?
is it because rich & mighty are involved ?

7.e - voice is ready to bring to book corrupt police officials subject to
conditions, are you ready ?

8.how many police personnel are charged with violations of people's
human rights & fundamental rights ?

9.how many STF police deployed to nab veerappan were themselves
charged with theft of forest wealth?

10.how you are ensuring the safety , health , food , living space of
inmates in jails?

11.how you are ensuring the medical care , health of prisoners in
hospitals & mental asylums?

12.How you are ensuring the safety , health , food , living space of
inmates in juvenile homes ?

 

Ten reasons why criminals in khaki get away

 

Behind every man like S.P.S. Rathore who abuses his authority stand the generals and footsoldiers who help and support him. We need to take them all down.

S.P.S. Rathore, the criminal former top cop of Haryana, may appear alone today but we must never forget that he was able to get away with the sexual molestation of a young child and the illegal harassment of her family for 19 years because he had hundreds of men who supported him in his effort to evade justice.

The fact that these men – fellow police officers, bureaucrats, politicians, lawyers, judges, school administrators – were willing to bend the system to accommodate a man accused of molesting a minor speaks volumes for the moral impoverishment of our establishment and country. Decent societies shun those involved in sexual offences against children. Even criminals jailed for ‘ordinary’ crimes like murder treat those serving time for molesting children as beyond the pale. But in India, men like Rathore have their uses for their masters, so the system circles its wagons and protects them.

The CBI’s appeal may lead to the enhancement of Rathore’s sentence and perhaps even the slapping of abetment to suicide charges, since his young victim killed herself to put an end to the criminal intimidation her family was being subjected to by Rathore and his men. But the systemic rot which the case has exposed will not be remedied unless sustained public pressure is put on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram, two men who have it in their power to push for simple remedies in the way the Indian law enforcement and justice delivery system works.

First, abolish the need for official, i.e. political sanction to prosecute bureaucrats, policemen and security forces personnel when they are accused of committing crimes. The original intent behind this built-in stay-out-of-jail card was to protect state functionaries from acts done in the course of discharging their duties in good faith. Somewhere along the line, this has come to mean protecting our custodians of law and order when they murder innocent civilians (eg. the infamous Panchalthan case in Kashmir where the trial of army men indicted by the CBI for murdering five villagers in 2000 still cannot take place because the Central government will not grant permission), or assault or molest women and children. No civilised, democratic society grants such impunity. It is disgusting to see former officials and bureaucrats from Haryana saying how they had wanted Rathore prosecuted but were prevented from doing so because of pressure. Such officials should either be made formally to testify in a criminal case against the politicians who so pressured them or they should themselves be hauled up for perverting the course of justice.

Second, stop talking about how making the police and army answerable to the law will somehow demoralise their morale. Does anybody care about the morale of ordinary citizens any more? Or the morale of upright police and army officers, who do not think it is right for their colleagues to be able to get away with criminal acts?

Third, bring an end to the cosy relationship between the police and politicians. Rathore was protected by four chief ministers of Haryana. He served them and they served him by ensuring his unfettered rise. It is absurd that the Indian Police is still governed by a colonial-era Act dating back to 1861. A number of commissions have made recommendations for reforming the police over the years; but no government or political party wants to give up its ability to use and misuse the police for their own benefit.

Fourth, ensure that police officers who abuse their authority and engage in mala fide prosecutions are dismissed from service and sentenced to jail for a long period of time. Mr. Chidambaram should use the considerable resources at his command to find out who were the policemen involved in filing 11 bogus cases against the teenaged brother of the young girl Rathore molested. He should then make sure criminal proceedings are initiated against all of them. The message must go out to every policeman in the country: If you abuse the law at the behest of a superior, you will suffer legal consequences.

Fifth, ensure that criminal charges against law enforcement personnel are fast-tracked as a matter of routine so that a powerful defendant is not able to use his position to delay proceedings the way Rathore did for years on end. The destruction or disappearance of material evidence in such cases must be treated as a grave offence with strict criminal liability imposed on the individual responsible for breaking the chain of custody.

Sixth, empower the National Human Rights Commission with teeth so that police departments and state governments cannot brush aside their orders as happened in the Rathore case. This would also require appointing to the NHRC women and men who have a proven record of defending human rights in their professional life, something that is done today only in the breach. The attitude of the Manmohan Singh government to this commission and others like the National Commission for Women (NCW) and National Commission for Minorities is shocking. Vacancies are not filled for months on end.

Seventh, ensure the early enactment of pending legislation broadening the ambit of sexual crimes, including sexual crimes against children. Between rape, defined as forced penetrative sex, and the vague, Victorian-era crime of ‘outraging the modesty of a woman’, the Indian Penal Code recognises no other form of sexual violence. As a result, all forms of sexual molestation and assault short of rape attract fairly lenient punishment, of the kind Rathore got. In his case, the judge did not even hand down the maximum sentence, citing concerns for the criminal’s age. Sadly, he did not take into account the age of the victim and neither does the IPC, which fails to distinguish between ‘outraging the modesty’ of an adult woman and a young child.

A draft law changing these provisions and bringing India into line with the rest of the modern world has been pending with the NCW and Law Ministry for years. Perhaps the government may now be shamed into pushing it through Parliament at the earliest.

Eighth, take steps to introduce a system of protection of witnesses and complainants. The fate that the family of Rathore’s young victim had to endure is testament to the fact that people who seek justice in India do so at their own peril.

Ninth, ensure that robust interrogation techniques like narco-analysis, which are routinely used against other alleged criminals, are also employed against police officers accused of crimes.

Tenth, the media and the higher judiciary must also turn the light inward and ask themselves whether they were also derelict in their duty. The Rathore case did not attract the kind of constant media attention it deserved, nor do other cases involving serving police officers accused of crimes against women, workers, peasants and minorities. As for the upper courts, their record is too patchy to inspire confidence. It was, after all, the high court which chose to disregard the CBI’s request for including abetment to suicide charges.

Inspite of repeated  appeals  , show cause notices by  our publication  to you , you have not replied let alone take action. You & your  office staff  lack  decorum , etiquette  , duty consciousness   of  replying  to  letters. You  are making contempt of citizens of india.  But  remember the basic fact  that you are enjoying 5 star pay , perks  at the expense of public.

 

Throughout  this  petition &  in our past appeals , the term “JUDGE”  includes  all public servants  right from  revenue inspector ,  officials performing quasi  judicial functions  right up to chief justice of india. 

 

In the following articles we have clearly shown  how   justice is  delayed  &   justice manipulated  in india.  SCI & CJI  is not even bothered about health conditions , life of   applicants.  I  am suffering from health problems  caused by   my previous  occupation  at M/s RPG Cables Ltd  and  am in my final days  ,  authorities   , SCI  , CJI   is not  bothered  to give justice  inspite of my repeated appeals  for  more than  a decade. 

 

Following  two   examples , actual cases  highlighting  the  judicial  delays :

1.     In Mysore  ideal Jawa Factory , company was locked out.  Huge amounts were outstanding to banks , suppliers , employees.  The  land  usage , alienation could have been converted from industrial use to commercial  to get higher market price  and then auctioned.  We appealed for same to  authorities including SCI , but they didn’t heed. It was auctioned off  for lesser price , proceeds earned was far  less to  fully  pay outstanding amounts to banks , suppliers and employees. They were only paid less amounts , thus  public banks , suppliers , employees were cheated of  their  rightful  dues. Afterwards the new buyer got the alienation , converted  it from industrial use to commercial usage , demolished factory building built huge residential complex and earned crores of rupees profit.

2.     In mysore  BEML   quarters  lake  &  Hebbal  lake  are  encroached. In the beginning itself , I have appealed to authorities  ,  SCI , CJI   to stop the encroachments.  District magistrate at that time threatened me. Even some citizens groups led protest marches. Nobody was botherd. Today  both lakes are encroached , huge buildings , factories are functioning.

 

It is the duty of Supreme Court of India to Protect , Guard the constitutional rights , fundamental rights of every Indian citizen . Since 25 years  I am  appealing  to SCI  about  issues concerning public welfare , national security , etc and as a result suffering injustices , my constitutional rights , human rights are repeatedly violated  but SCI is mum even when repeated appeals were made to it. Paradoxically , after these appeals for justice , I have suffered more injustices , attempts on my life were made ,  physically assaulted , livelihood  / jobs were  denied , news publication closed , press accreditation denied ,  received threatening  calls , blank calls, even to date  rough elements follow us , rough elements  scout  near home at mid night. Does  not these indicate some ties between rough elements & SCI  Judges ?

Mr.T.S.Thakur , You personally as  CJI  is responsible for protection of our whole family & must ensure protection of our  whole family. Please don’t send police once again to our home , they  lack practical powers , failed previously to enquire high & mighty. They are only interested in taking my statement & closing the case. I have given enough statements  to police , IB. Based on those statements , a supreme court monitored  CBI enquiry is appropriate, to prosecute corrupt public servants.

1.    Why  not police are given enough powers to summon , enquire high & mighty  VVIPs ? Why my decade old complaint to DGP is not acted upon ?

2.    Why  the  enquiry of higher executive in M/s RBI Curreny Note Press (BRBNMPL) , PES Engineering College , NIE , RPG Cables , Mysore District Court  is not done ? These people illegally denied me job opportunities  under the behest of criminals , if they are enquired they will point to the criminal behind.

3.    Why the enquiry  of concerned judges is  not made , who are denying  information  and delaying to act upon our PILs , under whose behest ? If enquired these judges will spill the beans  about criminals behind.

I ,NAGARAJA.M.R. hereby do declare that information given above are true to the best of my knowledge & belief. If i am repeatedly called to police station or else where for the sake of investigations , the losses i do incurr as a result like loss of wages , transportation , job , etc must be borne by the government. prevoiusly the police / IB personnel repeatedly called me the complainant (sufferer of injustices) to police station for questioning , but never called the guilty culprits even once to police station for questioning , as the culprits are high & mighty . this type of one sided questioning must not be done by police or investigating agencies . if anything untoward happens to me or to my family members like loss of job , meeting with hit & run accidents , loss of lives , death due to improper medical care , etc , the jurisdictional police , revenue officials , District Magistrate & Chief Justice of India together with above mentioned accused public servants will be responsible for it. Even if criminal nexus levels fake charges , police file fake cases against me or my dependents to silence me , this complaint is & will be effective.

If I or my family members or my dependents are denied our fundamental rights , human rights , denied proper medical care for ourselves , If anything untoward like hit & run cases , murder attempts , unnatural deaths , etc happens to me or to my dependents or to my family members - In such case  Mr.T.S.Thakur , Chief Justice of India together with the jurisdictional revenue & police officials will be responsible for it , in such case the government of india is liable to pay Rs. TWO crore as compensation to survivors of my family. if my whole family is eliminated by the criminal nexus ,then that compensation money must be donated to Indian Army Welfare Fund. Afterwards , the money must be recovered by GOI as land arrears from the salary , pension , property , etc of guilty police officials , guilty Judges , guilty public servants & guilty Constitutional fuctionaries. 

You   are   delaying  taking  action  with  respect to  PILs , appeals   made by us   concerning public welfare , national security, loss to public exchequer , etc.  Where as  courts have enough  time  to  hear  trivial cases  of cricket  boards , etc. When  you  cann’t work  without  fear or favour   of criminals  inside & outside government , you are  unfit  for  the  post . Your continuation  in office  only serves your  self  interest not the country.  Hereby , we request you to  RESIGN from the position  of chief justice of india and  to pave  the way for  may be to a person who can work , uphold law. But  you can  still  continue in office  as a burden   on  public exchequer , society   as  some of the previous CJIs  did.

We  are  witnessing  unfit  people being selected as judges by collegiums , public  service commissions. Till  rot  in  judiciary is cleared , judges  lack  moral , legal  right to prosecute , punish others.  Only when  we  have honest  persons in judiciary , police service    then alone  we can clean criminals  in judiciary , police service , government.  Then  alone we will get RAM RAJYA , a just  society  envisioned  by  our  constitution  framers.

 

Against  common people ,  you  judges make  harsh comments , strict enforcement of law   ,  police  cruelly  treat commoners  , use 3rd degree  torture   on  commoners. Whereas  against  rich  crooks  , mafia   you  judges &  police fail , lack  spine  to  uphold  law.  You are zeroes  before  rich  crooks  , valor of  judges , police  is  only  before commoners.  Still  if you have  little  sense  of  duty  take  action  on  following  PILs  , previous  appeals for  justice by us , reply  to  our  show cause  notices ,  issue  writ of mandamus  to concerned  public servants  to  give  full  truthful  information  to  our   following & previous  RTI  applications.

You have failed in your constitutional duties as Chief Justice of India. It will be better if you resign from judicial services immediately, it will be good for the society  the nation as a whole. or else you can continue in service as a burden on the public exchequer  , the society as some of previous CJIs did.

    Still  now also you can change your work style and sincerely do your duties  upholding rule of law IMPARTIALLY. Please read the details at  following web pages :

Honourable CJI sir , weeping is not right constitution of india has given you  the authority , TAKE ACTION DO YOUR DUTY.  People , History will remember you forever with respect. Anyway you are getting very good 5 star pay & perks , will also get decent pension after retirement from government. First  forget about post retirement  postings , discretionary allotment of sites , etc from government then you can work fearlessly. Both central & state governments are  biggest litigants in the country , IAS babus make wrong application , interpretation of laws  leading to litigations.

Do remember on the D Day , in the   Court of Almighty  everybody CJI , Judges , prime ministers , common man alike  has to bow his head. In who’s  court there is no match fixing , no technicalities , no vociferous hi fi advocates , no bias based on caste , religion , region , community , etc , only  straight simple account of wrongs & rights. Guess  his judgement in your case. GOD  BLESS US  ALL.

Karnataka DySP hangs self after being suspended for kidnapping, extortion

 

Kalappa Handibag, deputy superintendent of police (DySP) of Chikkamagaluru Rural in Karnataka, committed suicide on Tuesday by hanging after he was suspended from duty for his alleged connection in the case of abduction and extortion of a financier.

Relatives of his wife, Vidya, claimed that Kallappa committed suicide around 8.30 a.m. when his wife was in the bathroom. He was subsequently rushed to the Muragod Primary Health Centre and then referred to KLE Hospital in Belagavi. However, doctors at the hospital declared him brought dead, as reported by the Hindu.

Handibag's suspension was issued after a departmental inquiry was ordered against him, following a complaint by 37-year-old resident of Kempanahalli, Thejas, who alleged that Kalappa was one of the six men who abducted him and tortured and extorted money from him.

As disclosed by Thejas in the FIR, he was picked up by a gang of six men around 2 a.m. on June 28 when he was parking the car near his house. He was shoved into a Scorpio (KA 20 N 3657) and taken to an old warehouse in Bengaluru, where he was thrashed by the gangsters who also demanded a ransom of Rs. 25 lakh.

The gangsters told Thejas that he was being punished for duping people through his chit fund business and cricket betting. Thejas negotiated the ransom down to Rs. 10 lakh and called his friend identified as Shivu or Pavan to follow the kidnapper's instructions and deliver the money.

Thejas's friend was then given a mobile number (9480805120) and a voice from the other line asked him to deliver the cash to the police quarters behind Mathias Tower on IG Road. Thejas was eventually freed.

DySP Handibag's role came to light after Thejas and his friend used the car's registration number and the mobile number to investigate the kidnapping. Thejas's friend also recorded the mobile conversation with Handibag, according to a report by the Times of India.

Covert op on Dawood compromised by some Mumbai cops: RK Singh

 Noting that Dawood and Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Saeed were protected by Pakistani forces, Singh said a secret operation must be carried out in the manner the United States did to kill terrorists Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar.

 

India had planned a covert operation to take down underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, but the operation was compromised by some Mumbai Police officials. These are the explosive revelations made by former Home Secretary and now BJP leader RK Singh in an interview to Seedhi Baat on Aaj Tak.

RK Singh revealed details of how corrupt elements of the Mumbai Police foiled a secret operation to take down Dawood. The operation was launched when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the prime minister and current NSA Ajit Doval was at the IB. Indian government had roped in some elements from the Chota Rajan gang and they were being trained at a secret location outside Maharashtra. But Mumbai Police officials who were in touch with D-company landed up at the training camp with arrest warrants for the covert operatives who had been engaged by India. The entire operation to take down Dawood failed due to these rogue elements in Mumbai police. This is the first time that there is confirmation of a botched covert operation to take down Dawood by someone who has held a position of authority.

Noting that Dawood and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Hafiz Saeed were protected by Pakistani forces, Singh said a secret operation must be carried out in the manner the United States did to kill terrorists Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar. He added that Pakistan will never admit that Dawood is in Pakistan. Similarly, it will shamelessly deny the presence of other terrorists despite funding and training these terror groups on its soil. "India must repeat the Myanmar operation in Pakistan," he maintained. He added if one operation fails, the government shouldn't be disheartened but launch another operation right away.

Singh said Modi's advisors are not giving him the right advice on this issue. "Nothing will be achieved by handing over dossiers to Pakistan. It is globally recognised as a snake pit. We can't depend on the US to fight India's battles. India has to fight its own enemies," Singh added.

Singh also said the neighbouring country needs to be wise and avert a possible war by not shielding a terrorist. "Pakistan has to calculate the cost of a war. I don't think Pakistan is such a big fool that it would engage in a war with India," he said. "If America sees any threat from Pakistan, it will act. Similarly, Israel can kill its enemies. We need to develop this mentality," he added. The retired bureaucrat revealed that specially-trained private security men comprising mostly ex-army men protect Dawood in Pakistan under the supervision of the ISI. Singh exuded confidence that Modi's visit to the UAE would yield desirable results. He did acknowledge though that Dawood still has significant influence in Dubai.

Coming down heavily on Pakistan, Singh said India must stop dialogue with its neighbor and instead deal with the situation in a strategic manner. "India must hit back in a way that hurts Pakistan the most," he said while suggesting that the dialogue process only helps Pakistan restore credibility which it has lost all over the world. "Pakistan believes in a constant war with India. We have the capability to hit back hard. Any dialogue with Pakistan is futile. For a discredited country like Pakistan, dialogue process is an opportunity to regain its credibility and strike parity with India," Singh said. He said the elected government in the neighbouring country had no control over its military force and the ISI.

Singh lauded the central government's firm stand on separatists in Kashmir. He said the Pakistani government was using separatists to claim in international platform that it has the support of a section of people in Jammu and Kashmir. The Indian government has done the right thing by not talking to separatists, he said.

 

 

Lottery Scam: Retired IPS officer who introduced  Alok Kumar to Pari Rajan was major beneficiary


An IPS officer who retired in 2010 is said to be the major beneficiary of the single-digit lottery racket that was unearthed recently. If sources are to be believed then it is this retired officer who had held several positions in the Bengaluru City Police Commissionerate, who introduced the kingpin of the lottery racket, Pari Rajan, to fellow IPS officer Alok Kumar. 

The investigation carried out by the CID has indicated that the retired IPS officer was one of the biggest beneficiaries in the scam and his name figured in the list of 12 serving/ retired IPS officers whom the CID intended to summon for interrogation, the sources said. 


Alok Kumar, too, is said have disclosed the name of the officer, when he was grilled by the CID on Sunday. 

There are also reports that Rajan, a native of KGF was into hawala transactions and this was a major reason why many officers had links with him.

The suspicion is that Rajan used his contacts with the police top brass to ensure a safe hawala transaction. Hawala operators considered Bengaluru as a safe transit point and it had a well-oiled network.

With the CBI probe being ordered, there are possibilities of various aspects relating to lottery scam and hawala business to come out.

The Excise and Lottery Enforcement Cell was set up immediately after the ban on the lottery business in 2007. 

For the first two years, the cell had no station or power to arrest. One of the senior officers, who was in the Enforcement Cell between 2007 and 2010, said that until 2011 there wasn’t much illegal lottery business reported from across the State.

“Matka and single-number lottery were very much in existence, but they used to be handled by the respective district police. As far as lottery was concerned, there was no case registered at least till 2009-10,” an official said.

 

Two More SeniorCops Involved In Racket, Says Kumaraswamy

 

with Pari Rajan. The police have recently arrested Rajan in connection with the scam. Arun Chakravarthy, who was IGP, Lottery Squad, prior to Agrawal, had also taken bribe, he charged. According to Kumaraswamy, 30 to 40 senior police officers, including many IPS officers, are involved in the scam. Despite a TV channel conducting a sting operation in March this year, the government took no action for two months. During this period, the ruling party MLC took Pari Rajan and Matrin to the son of the influential person to strike a deal. When Martin and Rajan refused to pay Rs 100 crore, the scam gradually came out in the open, he said. Paying hafta The JD(S) leader said suspended police officer Dharanesh (who was then Superintendent of Police, Lottery Squad, southern range) and Pari Rajan had been paying hafta (bribe) to a minister in the Siddaramaiah ministry. Dharanesh was recently suspended in connection with the lottery scam. The officer wanted to continue in the post. The then Superintendent of Police, Lottery Squad, northern range, Chandrakanth was trying to get the post held by Dharanesh, he said. "The chief minister and Home Minister K J George should now disclose the name of the minister who was collecting the hafta. He should tell why Pari Rajan was not arrested all these days." Simmering differences He said the scam emerged due to the simmering differences among the police officers in sharing the bribe money paid by the mafia. Two cases filed initially in KGF in connection with the illegal lottery sale were fake and they were only meant to cover up the scam, he added. Later speaking to the media after the chief minister's decision to refer the scam to the CBI, Kumaraswamy said the government should get ready to face more embarrassment. However, he welcomed the decision to refer the racket to the CBI. Scam chronicle, according to HDK A constable in Kolar, Manjunath, was regularly taking bribe from Pari Rajan during June or July 2014. Rajan stopped giving him money after he developed contacts among higher-ups. Manjunath informs about illegal activities of Rajan to Singh, a head constable with anti-lottery squad. Singh, brings the matter to the notice of Ramappa Guttedar, the inspector of the squad. When questioned, Rajan he offers big money as bribe. Then he takes these policemen to Chennai where they meet one Martin, one of the key operators. Martin gives Rs 40 lakh as bribe and the three policemen sincerely inform about it to lottery squad SP Dharanesh and IGP Arun Chakravarthy. All the policemen share the money: Manjunath and Singh get Rs two lakh each, Ramappa gets Rs five lakh and the rest was shared by Dharanesh and Chakravarthy. Upset with the small share they got, Manjunath and Singh inform about the illegality to northern range SP Chandrakanth. Chandrakanth tries to get the post held by Dharanesh but fails. He then helps a TV news channel to conduct a sting operation. Six cases referred to CBI by Siddaramaiah government Misappropriation of over Rs nine crore by the officials of Ramanagaram-Channapatna Urban Development Authority with the support of bank officials in 2013. Misuse of over Rs five crore by the officials of Mandya Urban Development n Authority with the help of banks in 2013. Officers of many nationalised banks were said to be involved in the irregularity. Rape and murder of Sowjanya, a 17-year-old pre-university course student of SDMCollege, Ujire in Dakshina Kannada, on October 9, 2012. The theft of 12 historic idols from Siddhanta Darshan Block of a Jain Basadi at Moodbidri in September 2013. Death of IAS officer D K Ravi in April, 2015. Single-digit lottery scam. H D Kumaraswamy, JD(S) leader: The chief minister and Home Minister K J George should now disclose the name of the minister who was collecting the hafta. He should tell why Pari Rajan was not arrested all these days.

 

DGP son has links with Lokayukta scam accused kin

 

State police chief Omprakash’s son, Karthikesh Omprakash, has business relations with the kin of N Narasimha Murthy, a clerk at the State police headquarters, who has been arrested by the SIT probing the Lokayukta corruption scam.

Documents available with the Deccan Herald show that Murthy's brother-in-law Ashwath and Karthikesh are partners in a quarrying and crusher unit in Ramanagara. Incidentally, a complaint by the villagers of Hanchikuppe in Ramanagara district against this quarrying firm for violation of rules is still pending before the Upalokayukta.

The application for quarrying and stone crushing unit was filed in the name of Karthikesh in 2009. The Mining Licence (Number 1354 and 1353) was issued in favour of the firm Magadi Quarry and Crusher, owned by Karthikesh and Ashwath. Around five acres of gomala land at Hanchikuppe was allotted to the firm. 

When villagers objected to the quarrying unit within the prescribed safe zone, a proceeding by the Ramanagara Deputy Commissioner held on March 1, 2013 relaxed certain conditions. The area was declared as safe zone. The same day, based on the recommendation of the DC, Karnataka State Pollution Control Board accorded certification for the safe zone. The decision was so fast that both the offices passed orders in favour of a quarry owner in just one day, the documents reveal. Despite this, the Tahshildar had submitted a report that the unit fell within 500 metres of residential area, which is not permissable under Karnataka Regulation of Stone Crushers Act, 2011. 

The Hanchikuppe villagers had also filed a PIL in the High Court. The court dismissed the petition on the grounds that since the villagers are the concerned parties a PIL cannot be entertained. The villagers also filed a complaint before the Upalokayukta (Compt/Uplok/BD/459/2011) and the next date of hearing is September 23, 2015.
 
On the day Omprakash took charge as DG&IGP, Loksatta Party had complained to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah that he had prima facie misused his position to get clearances for the unit owned by his son. 

When contacted, Omprakash said that it was a personal business issue of his son. Asked if he is aware of his son's business partnership with the brother-in-law of a clerk in his office, the DG&IGP answered in the negative. 

“You have to ask this question to my son. He may have a business relationship with a private person. Moreover, if it is illegal, let the law take its own course,'' he said.

 

Karnataka Lokayukta Bhaskar Rao’s son held in ‘extortion’ racket

 

The arrest of Ashwin Rao was made in Hyderabad, as the SIT, formed to probe the alleged racket that has also led to clamour for the resignation of Bhaskar Rao, intensified the investigation

 

 

A special investigation team (SIT) of Karnataka police, which is probing an extortion racket in the state Lokayukta, Monday arrested Ashwin Rao, son of Lokayukta Justice Y Bhaskar Rao and the prime accused in the case.

Ashwin was arrested from Kukatpally near Hyderabad.

“On Monday morning, we picked up Ashwin from his residence,”a senior SIT official said. An advocate for Ashwin, who moved an anticipatory bail plea in a special Lokayukta court after his client was detained, was informed in court by the SIT investigating officer Labhu Ram about the arrest.

 

 

Ashwin is prime accused in an extortion case filed by a government executive engineer, M N Krishnamurthy, who has alleged that Ashwin demanded a Rs 1 crore bribe from him to prevent initiation of corruption proceedings against him.

The SIT, however, informed the special court Monday that Ashwin had not been arrested in connection with Krishnamurthy’s complaint, but in a fresh extortion complaint against him by P B Channabasappa, a government executive engineer involved with the Upper Tunga irrigation project in Haveri district.

“It is not clear how the arrest could have happened in the second FIR because the SIT was in Hyderabad early on Monday and the second FIR was filed around 10.30 am. The anticipatory bail plea in the Krishnamurthy case is still valid if the arrest is in the second case. The SIT has been asked to file objections to the anticipatory bail plea,” Ashwin’s advocate Sandeep Patil said.

SIT sources indicated that Ashwin would be placed under arrest in the Krishnamurthy case as well after he is brought to Bengaluru Tuesday.

The SIT has so far arrested five people in connection with the case.

The alleged racket had multiple layers, with one group filing RTIs to identify allegedly corrupt persons as targets, a second group calling up officials and summoning them to the Lokayukta offices, and a third group allegedly demanding money to prevent initiation of cases against them.

On Sunday, the SIT had arrested the public relations officer in the Lokayukta, Syed Riyazatullah, a police officer of the rank of joint commissioner, on charges of extortion and cheating.

Riyazatullah was produced in court Monday and remanded in SIT custody till August 5. The court overruled his bail plea, saying there was need for effective investigation in the case.

 

Karnataka extortion case: Lokayukta’s son part of larger conspiracy, says SIT

 

Ashwin Rao alias Yerabati Ashwin has been arrested by a SIT in connection with an attempt to extort money from a government official in the Lokayukta.

 

The SIT in its objections has stated that Ashwin Rao “misused the premises and office of the Lokayukta and meeting hall adjacent to the chambers of PRO of Lokayukta” as part of the alleged extortion conspiracy.

 

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) which arrested Karnataka Lokayukta Justice Y Bhaskar Rao’s son Ashwin Rao in an extortion case stated on Monday that he is a prominent member of a larger conspiracy.

Ashwin Rao alias Yerabati Ashwin has been arrested by a SIT in connection with an attempt to extort money from a government official in the Lokayukta. The SIT objected to an anticipatory bail plea filed by Ashwin Rao to pre-empt his arrest in a second extortion case.

 

The SIT in its objections has stated that Ashwin Rao “misused the premises and office of the Lokayukta and meeting hall adjacent to the chambers of PRO of Lokayukta” as part of the alleged extortion conspiracy. The call detail records obtained during investigations “clearly establishes” that Rao was in constant touch with three other key accused in the extortion racket – middlemen V Bhaskar and Ashok Kumar and Lokayukta PRO Syed Riyazathullah, the SIT has stated.

According to the SIT, though Ashwin Rao has been arrested only in connection with an extortion attempt on one government official, his arrest in a second case is likely at any time. “Considering the fact that petitioner is the son of the Hon’ble Lokayukta and he is in a position to wield influence on the prosecution witnesses he in not entitled to anticipatory bail,” the SIT has argued. The SIT has also claimed to have unearthed incriminating material against Ashwin Rao in the course of a search of his house in Hyderabad.

While a case was initially registered against Ashwin Rao and others for summoning Bengaluru Urban district executive engineer M N Krishnamurthy to the Lokayukta office on May 4, 2015 to place a demand for a bribe of Rs one crore to prevent initiation of Lokayukta corruption proceedings the son of the Lokayukta was eventually arrested by the SIT in connection with another case registered on the basis of a complaint by an irrigation department engineer PB Channabasappa who alleged that Ashwin Rao and others demanded Rs 20 lakh to make a Lokayukta corruption case go away.

The SIT has in other statements of objection to bail applications said that cell tower analysis had revealed that three of the middlemen, including realtor Ashok Kumar who allegedly made the telephone call summoning executive engineer Krishnamurthy to the Lokayukta office were together on May 4 when the government official was called to the Lokayukta’s office. The trio of middlemen were also frequently in touch with the Lokayukta PRO and Justice Bhaskar Rao’s son Ashwin Rao, the SIT has stated.

The SIT also informed the special Lokayukta court that middlemen Ashok Kumar and Shankare Gowda, and Lokakyukta PRO Riyazathullah had destroyed crucial evidence including some SIM cards and mobile handsets used in the conspiracy.

  

Gali Reddy cash-for-bail scam nets two more Andhra judges

 

More skeletons are tumbling out of the closet in the cash-forbail scam involving former Karnataka minister Gali Janardhan Reddy. 

On Thursday, the anti-corruption bureau (ACB) arrested two more judges who allegedly made parallel attempts to secure bail for the mining baron in the Obulapuram Mining Company's illegal mining case. 

The two judges - D. Prabhakar Rao, a family court judge in Srikakulam and K. Lakshminarasimha Rao, the chief judge of the city small causes court, were taken into custody by the agency from their respective residences in Hyderabad. 

While Prabhakar Rao was suspended by the Andhra Pradesh High Court on July 6, Lakshminarasimha Rao was suspended late on Wednesday, after the ACB probe unearthed his role in the scam. 

The ACB authorities are questioning him. The ACB had already arrested suspended CBI special court judge Talluri Pattabhirama Rao, who had allegedly received a bribe for granting bail to the former Karnataka minister on May 11. 

Retired judge T.V. Chalapathi Rao, who mediated in the cash-for-bail deal, has also been arrested. Pattabhi's son Ravichandra, rowdy sheeter-turned-realtor P. Yadagiri Rao and realtor Ravi Suryaprakash Babu were arrested and remanded in judicial custody. 

According to the ACB sources, the former Karnataka minister and mining baron had approached Pattabhi through two different routes: one involving Chalapathi Rao and Yadagiri; and the other through Lakshminarasimha Rao and Prabhakar Rao. 

While Yadagiri offered Rs5 crore to Pattabhi, Prabhakar offered to strike the deal for Rs10 crore. However, Pattabhi preferred Yadagiri's offer because it was a safer deal as Chalapathi happened to be his friend. 

Janardhan Reddy was arrested on September 5, 2011, by the CBI. He is accused of being involved in the illegal mining and export of iron ore in Bellary and Anantapur.




Rs 100cr offered for Gali Janardhan Reddy’s bail: Arrested judge

 

More skeletons are tumbling out in the murky cash-for-bail scam involving mining baron and former Karnataka minister Gali Janardhan Reddy as a lower court judge, arrested in the case, disclosed to the ACB that Gali's men were ready to offer as much as a staggering Rs 100 crore to secure bail for him. Earlier, the deal amount was put at Rs 15 crore.

T Lakshminarasimha Rao, the arrested judge, disclosed that Dasaradharami Reddy, a relative of Gali, had made the Rs 100 crore offer, according to the confession statement recorded by the ACB. Krishna Prasad, an auditor, who is known to him and another relative M Venkateswara Rao approached Lakshminarasimha Rao in the second week of April with a request to look for a `channel' to influence the CBI judge for Gali's release on bail. "They were in touch with Dasaradharami Reddy who was willing to pay even Rs 100 crore for securing the bail," the confession statement of Rao said. Though the deal initially came as a shock to the arrested judge, who at the time was registrar (enquiries), high court, he was later attracted towards the deal, it said.

Lakshminarasimha Rao called the CBI court judge B Nagamaruti Sarma to his residence on April 18 and tried to convince him on granting of bail to Gali. Sarma did not agree for the deal and went away rejecting the offer. He had, in fact, dismissed the bail plea. Then another person Raavi Surya Prakash Babu, a real estate dealer, who was taken to Bellary MLA Sriramulu by his associate Kolli Lakshmaiah Chowdary for striking the deal, approached Rao again. Surya Prakash had already met Sriramulu's nephew and Kampli MLA T H Suresh Babu who, too, was trying to secure bail for Gali and advised him to wait as Nagamaruti Sarma was not of 'their type'. But he requested Lakshminarasimha Rao to keep the `channel' open as the deal was "too lucrative to be ignored".

Later, in a strange sequence of events, Nagamaruti Sarma was shifted out of CBI court and a fresh bail plea was filed which came before another special judge T Pattabhirama Rao. Lakshminarasimha Rao roped in Pattabhi's batchmate D Prabhakar Rao, another district judge, who was with the state election commission as its secretary (legal). He also tried to push the deal but failed as Pattabhi told him that he would decide the matter on only `merit'. It turned out later that Pattabhi chose a 'route' planned by his friend Chalapati though the deal was only for Rs 5 crore. This was mainly because his friend did not put any precondition that he should meet Gali Somasekhara Reddy, brother of Gali Janardhana Reddy, before giving bail as was done by Prabhakar Rao, who was also arrested in the case. Prabhakar in his confession spoke of only Rs 15 core implying that he too was unaware of the whopping Rs 100-crore deal. While the ACB arrested Lakshminarasimha Rao on July 12, Pattabhi was arrested last month.

Interestingly, the ACB sleuths seized some cheques bearing the names of Lakshminarasimha Rao's family members with some complaint letters written by advocates against some AP high court judges. The letters were addressed to the President of India.

 

Cash-for-bail scam: CBI Judge Pattabhi Rama Rao arrested


In a case of corruption seeping into the lawmakers psyche, the Andhra Pradesh anti-Corruption bureau arrested Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) judge Justice Pattabhi Rama Rao in the cash-for-bail scam. He was suspended after the allegations surfaced that he accepted a bribe of Rs 6 crore to grant bail to mining baron Janardhana Reddy in the illegal mining case. Raids were earlier carried out in Rao's residence and the arrest is the third in the case. Rao was hearing the case related to the Obulapuram Mining Company (OMC) scam. Retired district judge T V Chalapathi Rao and Pattabhirama Rao's son Ravichandra was also questioned by ACB sleuths. Pattabhirama and Chalapathi were classmates at A C College of Law in Guntur and the latter allegedly brokered the multi-crore bribe. On a tip off that a deal has been struck between Reddy and the judge, the CBI had earlier recovered a cash of nearly Rs 1.80 crore from a bank locker here, the keys of which were allegedly in Ravichandra's possession.   


300 Delhi lower-court judges under probe in laptop scam

 

Nearly 300 Delhi lower-court judges are under the scanner of the high court for alleged financial irregularities in purchase of computers and laptops from funds provided by the Delhi government and Delhi high court in 2013.

A high-level panel comprising three HC judges has been set up by chief justice of Delhi high court Justice G Rohini to look into how the money was spent by each of these judges. The panel will scrutinize documents submitted by the judges on purchase of these items.

Under the scheme, each judge was sanctioned Rs 1.1 lakh for upgrading their computer infrastructure. The idea was to give the judges the freedom to opt for computers, laptops or iPads so that their efficiency in disposal of cases improves.

 

Sources told TOI that the probe panel has issued memos to judicial officers under the scanner, asking for detailed explanation on the manner in which they spent the money.

"All judges were initially under probe but the panel has now zeroed in on roughly 300 officers against whom preliminary discrepancies have been found. The focus is on correctness of the utilization certificate given by them to HC relating to the purchases," said an authoritative source.

 

"It has emerged some may have bought TVs or home theatre systems out of the sanctioned sum instead of computers," the source added.

The irregularities came to light during a routine vigilance inquiry conducted by court officials. When the evidence was shown to the chief justice and other senior judges including the computer committee, it set alarm bells ringing.

Taking a serious view of alleged financial misdemeanours by city court judges, Justice G Rohini set up a panel comprising justices Vipin Sanghi, Rajiv Shakdher and VK Rao to conduct a swift but wide ranging inquiry.

In response to the memos issued by the panel, sources said, many judges have sent detailed replies with annexures explaining what was purchased and even showing debit/credit details from their official bank accounts that tally with the date of purchase. Details of vendors have also been provided which is being checked individually.

 

"Since there was no specification of how much money is to be used for maintenance of the new equipment, the panel is likely to give a leeway of Rs 10,000-15,000 that may have been kept reserved for annual maintenance charges by a judge. But beyond that, the charges if proved, may lead to the guilty judge's dismissal from service because financial fraud or providing forged certificates is a very serious crime," the source pointed out.

The Delhi government had extended a similar scheme for its bureaucracy. City bureaucrats were empowered to buy computers and related equipment out of the sum allocated.

 

`Copy cat' judges suspended by HC

 

Five judges belonging to the state's subordinate judiciary were suspended by the AP High Court on Wednesday for allegedly copying while writing their LLM examinations at the Arts College of Kakatiya University in Warangal on Tuesday. 

The judges were doing this course under distance mode from Kakatiya University as the degree would help them gain some increments in their careers. 

Those placed under suspension include K Ajitsimha Rao, senior civil judge, Ranga Reddy district, M Kistappa, principal senior civil judge, Anantapur, P Vijayendar Reddy, second additional district judge, Ranga Reddy district, M Srinivasachary, senior civil judge in Bapatla of Guntur district and Hanumantha Rao, the additional junior civil judge in Warangal. 

They were allegedly caught red-handed in the act of copying on Tuesday by the authorities and upon receipt of this information, the HC suspended them from service pending an inquiry. The HC would soon launch disciplinary proceedings against all these judicial officers, sources said.

 

DSP among six held on charge of hunting deer

 

Forest Department authorities on Friday arrested Deputy Superintendent of Police (CID), Mysore, T.K. Dharmesh and five others for allegedly hunting down a spotted deer in the Omkara forest range of Bandipur Tiger Reserve (BTR).

The carcass of the male deer with a bullet injury was found in Naganapura third block in the forest range, according to Forest Department sources.

They said the Forest staff saw the accused in the forest range during routine patrolling early on Friday and took them into their custody. They later combed the area and found the deer carcass. Senior Forest officers rushed to the spot on getting the information and conducted investigation.

“The deer carcass had entry and exit bullet wound. The post-mortem was performed and the viscera samples have been preserved,” the sources said. A case under the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, has been booked against the accused.

The names of other accused were given as Manjaiah, Raghu, Hanif, Atiq and Farid.

“A .303 service rifle and a multi-utility vehicle used for committing the alleged offence have been seized from the accused,” the sources said. Repeated attempts to contact the Forest officers investigating the case went in a vain.

When contacted, D. Rajkumar, Honorary Wildlife Warden, Mysore district confirmed that six persons, including Mr. Dharmesh, were arrested on charges of alleged killing of deer. “The deer was found hunted with a service rifle,” he said.

 

Raid on bus: Six police officers charged with dacoity

 

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has chargesheeted six police officials and some other private persons in the infamous inter-State dacoity case of Rs 2.27 crore from a Kerala-bound bus in Yelwala police station limits in Mysore in January this year. The chargesheet was submitted in the jurisdictional court in Mysore after the Department obtained government permission to prosecute the accused police officials – the then sub inspector C.D. Jagadish, four constables – Satish, Manohar, Ravi and Latif of Mysore South police station and Prakash and the gunman of the then Southern range Inspector General of Police Ramchandra Rao under Sections 395 (dacoity) and 120A (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code.  

Rao, who was transferred after he came under scanner for his alleged involvement in the crime, does not figure in the chargesheet. “There is no legal admissible evidence against the then IGP or the then deputy superintendent of Police (Mysore rural) Srihari Baragur. The investigation is however on and it will be early to come to any conclusion,” said an official source. He added that it is a complex case because there are no independent witnesses.

A Kerala-bound bus carrying about Rs 2.27 crore of four jewelers was ‘raided’ by the police in Yelawala police station limits in Mysore on January 4, who seized six bags of cash from inside the bus and arrested the driver and the cleaner of the bus for “illegal” transportation of cash.

The police showed a recovery of Rs. 20 lakh, but the Kerala jewelers told their Home Minister that the amount was around Rs. 2.27 crore. “There is no clinching evidence on the exact amount, which was reportedly being transported in the bus. We can only surmise from the statements of the victims and the accused,” added the officer.

 

 

Rs 2.26-crore theft by cop: IGP, DySP under scanner

 

CID focuses on duo after gunman, informant confesses

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Karnataka Police is thoroughly probing the alleged roles of K Ramachandra Rao, Inspector General of Police (southern range) and Srihari Baragur, Deputy Superintendent of Police (Mysore rural), in the sensational Rs 2.26-crore robbery that took place on a Kerala-bound bus at Yelawala, Mysore, on January 4 this year. The needle of suspicion pointed strongly towards the duo following a confession by Rao's gunman, Prakash, who was arrested by the CID on Tuesday along with three informants. 

Statements made by the arrested gunman and the informants in their confessions indicate that the plundered loot was shared between the IGP and DySP. According to highly placed sources, Prakash and one of the three informants, gave minute-by-minute accounts to the CID sleuths about the robbery that occurred two months ago. 



"We have recorded their confession statements. Before laying our hands on the IGP and DySP, we need to collect further corroborative evidence. At this juncture, we can neither rule out their involvement nor give them a clean chit," a top-ranking CID official, who is part of the investigating team, told Bangalore Mirror. 



However, when BM spoke to IGP K Ramachandra Rao, he denied all the allegations. "I am not aware of what Prakash has said in his statements to the police. He is in the CID's custody, and they are conducting a detailed probe. Let them come out with the truth," he said. 

METICULOUSLY EXECUTED 



The meticulously executed robbery unfolded on the night of January 4, as a group of policemen led by Mysore South SI, C D Jagadish, stopped a bus that was en route to Kerala from Bangalore, near Yelawala on the Mysore-Hunsur state highway. They later diverted the bus to a road near Yelawala police station and took out six bags containing hard cash from its luggage compartment. The driver and cleaners of the bus were taken into custody and a case slapped against them for ferrying large amounts of cash illegally. But the cops showed a recovery amount of a mere Rs 20 lakh, whereas the actual amount was Rs 2.26 crore. 



The cash belonged to four Kerala-based jewellers who had reportedly selected the bus to transport it from Bangalore to Kerala. It is alleged that they had taken the owner and the driver of the bus into confidence in order to ferry the cash. 



The jewellers, to whom the cash belonged, got the shock of their lives when they found out that the Yelawala police had stopped the bus and booked a case against the driver and cleaners, showing a paltry sum of Rs 20 lakh as recovery. 



Upon making enquiries, they learnt that the remaining Rs 2.06 crore had been pocketed by the policemen themselves. The agitated jewellers proceeded to get in touch with Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala, who personally knows Karnataka Home Minister K J George. Chennithala brought the matter to the notice of George, who was reportedly infuriated with what had happened. He immediately informed Chief Minister Siddaramaiah — who hails from Mysore — of the incident. 



ENRAGED CM SUMMONS DGP 

An enraged Siddaramaiah and George are then said to have summoned State Police Chief Lalrokhuma Pachau and asked him to get the matter examined. Pachau got in touch with IGP Rao, and subsequently, a case was taken up. But the top brass smelled a rat during the investigation, and a CID investigation was ordered. 



The CID sleuths conducted a methodical investigation for a month before laying their hands on the IGP's gunman, Prakash, and his gang of informants. Investigation by the CID also revealed that Prakash resorted to these kinds of crimes involving Kerala jewellers regularly over the past two years. He had allegedly taken the help of DySP Srihari Baragur, and other policemen, to conduct false raids and clean out cash. In the past, the gang had looted small amounts running into a few lakh. But since the amount involved now was a staggering Rs 2.26 crore, the jewellers mustered the courage to lodge a complaint. 



"The crime does not stop with the gunman. It appears that they got support from higher-ups. It is here we are examining the involvement (if any) of Prakash's boss Rao, DySP Baragur, and other seniors," the officer added. After the matter reached the CM's table, the culprits tried to reach a compromise with the jewellers by offering to return the money. This, however, failed to go through because some of the policemen had taken large amounts of cash with them, and had subsequently gone absconding, said the CID police. The absconding policemen, four in number, are not be confused with the three informants. 



Additional Director General of Police (CID) P K Garg said, "The IGP's gunman, Prakash, was arrested two days ago. So far, we have arrested four persons whom we are questioning and whose statements we are recording. The money is yet to be recovered. We believe that the cash is with the absconding policemen, and we have laid a manhunt for the four policemen, whose names and ranks I cannot reveal." 



According to sources, Prakash and his gang shared the booty among themselves, the informants, and senior police officers. The informants said they got around Rs 20 lakh as their cut, but claimed the rest is with policemen of different ranks. 

 

ROGUE COPS DON’T GIVE A BUCK

 

Old habits die hard: Even as the average Bengalurean stands in long queues to withdraw his hard-earned money, corrupt policemen and babus are busy converting or hiding their black money




Cop, 2 KRV men held for black ops; may have converted up to Rs 2 crore

 

It’s a classic case of the fence eating the crop: a policeman, instead of being on the vigil himself, was arrested for working in cohorts with a group that helps those with black money exchange it for new notes.


The 43-year-old police constable, B Shesha, attached with the Central Crime Branch (CCB), was arrested for facilitating illegal cash conversion, along with four accomplices, two of whom were members of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedhike (KRV), Shivarame Gowda faction.


All of them were booked for assaulting and robbing a businessman after promising to help him exchange in old currencies with the new.


Shesha was suspected to be a major operative in the illegal cash conversion racket, mainly targeting businessmen and trader community in the city. It is believed that he had had helped exchange currency worth at least Rs 2 crore for a fixed commission, since November 8 when old notes of 500 and 1,000 denominations were rendered obsolete. At least four more suspects are yet to be arrested.


The Magadi Road police, who arrested the constable, said he was attached to the Organised Crime Wing (OCW) of the CCB. Also arrested were G Byresha, 37, of KP Agrahara, P Vijay, 27, of Gopalapura, K Mannivannan, 36, of Bhuvaneshwari Nagar and Pavan. Byresha and Vijay are the KRV activists.


The police are yet to arrest four other accused. The issue was reported after a fall out between the racketeers and their clients over commission, leading to the abduction and assault of Jaishankar (42), a resident of KG Nagar, who owns Shreyas Electrical shop in Vijayanagar.


He was in contact with the accused and was assured that he would be given Rs25 lakh in new notes in exchange of Rs30 lakh of demonetised tenders. They offered him Rs5 lakh as commission for the deal. Jaishankar pooled in much as Rs25.2 lakh from his trader friends in the locality, but decided to take his cut of Rs5 lakh and told the accused that he will handover only Rs21.5 lakh. This led to an argument when Jaishanker along with his friend, Girish, came near Star Bazaar in Magadi Police station limits to hand over the collected amount on Saturday.


“There was some misunderstanding between both parties over the missing Rs5 lakh and the gang forcibly took Jaishankar and his friend near Madanayakanahalli and robbed them of the cash and were released with life threat. The businessman had filed a complaint with the Magadai Road police on Tuesday and identified the accused as they were known to them,” said an officer who was a part of the investigations.


The police managed to arrest the four accused, including KRV members Mannivannan and Pavan immediately. They revealed Shesha’s name during interrogation. They also claimed that they thought Jaishankar will not dare to lodge a complaint since the amount collected was unaccounted for. Later, Shesha was picked up and his mobile phone was seized.


“Shesha is a 1996 batch police constable and has served at Chitradurga, Chickpet and Kengeri police stations before coming to CCB. He has been taken into police custody and we are trying to ascertain if he was involved in similar incidents,” deputy commissioner of police (West) MN Anucheth told BM.

 

Retired  DySP   raids  Businessmen

 

The city police have detained a retired deputy superintendent of police (DySP) for allegedly posing as a fake Central Crime Branch (CCB) official and forcefully decamping with Rs83 lakh of unaccounted cash collected from 20 individuals, including realtors and businessmen, to be exchanged into legal tender at a residence in JP Nagar last Thursday.


The former police officer’s involvement with the currency exchange gang is also being probed and he is expected to be formally placed under arrest late on Wednesday night.


The former officer, identified as Babu Noronha, retired from police service as DySP CID early this year. He was also one of the main accused in a fake encounter of interstate gangster Sagayam near Ramamurthy Nagar in 2003. He was posted as inspector at Commercial Street Police Station at that time and was also the recipient of the President’s Police Gallantry Award in 2004. However, doubts were raised over the encounter and CBI registered a case against him in which he was acquitted last year, after a prolonged trial.


More arrests are likely to be made in connection with the case in the coming days, claimed investigating officers.


The accused was picked up on the basis of the complaint filed by Shivaraj, a realtor who was one of the 20 people who had pooled in as much as Rs83 lakh in demonetised currency to be exchanged at 25 per cent commission. The deal was finalised through Karthik, who had contacted them claiming to be a facilitator for illegal cash exchange, for a fixed commission. The cash was to be exchanged at the residence of Satish on Thursday night and was to be handed over to Lohith, one of the main accused in the case. 


However, after Shivaraj showed the cash bundle to Lohith, a group of men entered and claimed that they were from the Central Crime Branch (CCB) and staged a fake arrest, asking Shivaraj to accompany them in their vehicle. They drove around for a while and pushed Shivaraj out of the vehicle at a deserted spot near JP Nagar and sped away with the cash. An official complaint was filed with JP Nagar police station.


“There were six people involved in the scam and one of the main accused, Lohit, is closely associated with Babu Noronha. We have detained him in connection with the case,” said SD Sharanappa, Deputy Commissioner, Bengaluru City (South).


Sources added that Babu Noronha was waiting inside a car outside and handed his old police identity card to Lohith when he went inside and announced to the victims that they were from the police department. Investigating officials are also probing if any other serving or former police official was involved in the crime.
