Chief Justice of India ( CJI ) a Criminal ?
-  PIL  Appeal   to  Honorable  Supreme  court  of  India  For  Writ  of  Mandamus

To,
Honourable Registrar ,
Supreme Court of India ,
New Delhi. 

Subject :  PIL appeal for WRIT OF MANDAMUS  &  Disciplinary  action ,  criminal  proceedings  against  Chief  Justice  of  India

I don’t  know whether secretariat staff of CJI office  &  DARPG  /  DPG  officials are forwarding my appeals for justice , e-mails to you  or not.  They will be held accountable for their lapses if any.  This notice is against  the repeated failure of constitutional duties  & indirect collusion with criminals by  previous CHIEF  JUSTICEs  OF  INDIA. Notice  is  served against them , to the office of CJI , NOT personally against you. At the individual level  I do whole heartedly   respect  Honourable  Justice  R M  Lodha.
Please refer my appeal for justice through DARPG ;
DLGLA/E/2013/00292
DEPOJ/E/2013/00679


The chief justice of india  is not replying to my repeated show-cause notices ,damage payment notices nor taking appropriate legal actions , in time . However the public servants take their thousands of rupees salary & perks well in time without fail on 1st  of every month. As a result of continued negligence of constitutional duties since years we public are suffering injustices , crimes which could have been prevented are taking place. Thereby CJI is aiding the criminals in committing crimes & cover up of crimes , in the course becoming a criminal himself. We salute our freedom fighters , military personnel & martyrs for all the sacrifices made by them. Let us build a strong , Secular , Democratic India by getting rid off few corrupt elements , anti nationals , traitors among public servants , among judiciary &among police who are greater threat to India’ security & integrity than Pakistani terrorists  or  chinese  military.

 Information input forms part of process of one’s expression. One’s expression in any forms – written , oral , etc becomes information input to the opposite person , in turn he expresses his reply. Information & Expression are inseparable parts & form lifeline of a democracy. That is the reason  , Right  to Expression is the basic fundamental right as well as human right of every Indian citizen. When a person’s right to expression is violated , his other rights to equality , justice , etc also are violated. Suppression of Information amounts to curbing of Expression. In a democracy , people have a right to know how the public servants are  functioning . However till date publicservants are hiding behind the veil of Officials Secrets Act (which is of british vintage created by british to  suppress native Indians ). By this cover-up public servants are hiding their own corruption , crimes , mismanagement , failures , etc. even RTI Act is not beingfollowed intoto by public servants. However the recent delhi high court ruling affirming that CJI is under RTI purview & bound to answer RTI request , is note worthy. Our previous RTI request to CJI , union home secretary of GOI, President of India , DG & IGP of GOK and others were not honored. The information is sought were answers to the following questions mentioned in the below mentioned websites . the questions concerned the past , present continuing injustices meted out to millions of Indian citizens , due to wrong / illegal workpractices of Indian judges , police & public servants . The information we sought would expose the traitors , anti-nationals , criminals in public service .The information we are seeking are no defense secrets , no national secrets .The truthful information exposes the anti-nationals , traitors in the public service & strengthens our national security , national unity & integrity.

Hereby , i do request the honourable supreme court of india , for a Supreme Court monitored CBI Enquiry into this whole issue as karnataka police are helpless , they don't have legal powers to prosecute high & mighty ,constitutional functionaries. They have not even enquired the guilty VVIPs  even once however Under pressure from higher-ups they repeatedly called me the complainant to police station took statements from me all for closing the files. 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. As the trial court Judges cross verify the antecedents , history of the parties in a case to ascertain party’s honesty ,integrity , as the investigating police officers cross check the antecedents , history of a complainant / accussed /witnesses to ascertain their honesty , integrity of the accussed / complainant ,in the same way the parties in a case , as complainant / accussed / witnesseshave a right to ascertain the integrity , honesty of the trial court judge &  investigating police officers to ensure they are not biased and provide a fair ,level ground. JAI HIND. VANDE MATARAM.

Editorial : Mr. M K Hanjura & Ms. Smita Vats Sharma -  Criminals in Supreme Court of India

   We made RTI requests , appeals  to  Supreme Court of India repeatedly  to seek information regarding criminals within judiciary , legal fraternity & police. Mr.M K Hanjura Registrar & RTI First Appellate Authority  and Ms. Smita Vats Sharma CPIO  declined information citing unavailability.  Does not SCI maintain service records of judges ? Whole public world knows about  churchill’s men among judiciary  - judges involved in rape , dowry harassment , misuse of office , etc,  but on record Ms.Smita Vats Sharma and Mr. M K Hanjura doesn’t know anything. Police question innocents for hours , apply 3rd degree torture methods to extract answers which are convenient for police. Advocates & Judges make innocents stand in witness box , ask tens of questions  hearing after hearing. But when it is the turn of  JUDGES themselves  to stand in witness box  and answer questions  publicly , they are not answering. Does that mean silence is the acceptance of guilt , crime by judges ? Will the police dare apply 3rd degree torture on those  rogue judges ?
   We are seeking information about rogue judges  :
1.  For their legal prosecution at appropriate forum.
2.  To  make litigants aware about the antecedents of  judges handling their cases. If the judge handling their case  is facing allegations  litigants can opt for transfer of case to a honest judge’s court.
3.  To make convicts / sufferers of injustice  meted out at the hands of  judges (facing allegations) to appeal for retrial of their closed cases & to seek justice in a honest judge’s court.

By repeatedly covering – up crime & criminals , by covering – up judges committing crime , Ms. Smita Vats Sharma and Mr. Mr. M K Hanjura themselves   have committed crimes. Will the new CJI look  into the matter , to uphold rule of law.

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.

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.

Written  Argument – RTI  APPEAL

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.

To my repeated appeals for justice , repeated appeals to utilize my services to apprehend criminals , repeated PIL petitions , repeated appeals for information under  RTI act , your  response  was silence  with respect to RTI applications  literally no information was given to 99% of  queries nor you transferred the queries to respective department which can provide answer .  This silence or  intentional negligence of duty  amounts to crime cover –up.  Due to improper action  on your  part  crimes  which could have been nipped at the bud (information of crime given by us to SCI)  happened  , which amounts to abetting crime.  Once again  if you deny me  information to following queries , you are  reinforcing the proof that concerned supreme court of india judges are also CRIMINALS themselves.  Answer following  questions :

1 . How many judges are booked for graft , sexual crimes , crimes against women , irregularities , amassing disproportionate wealth , failure of duty , getting illegal allotment of sites & other crimes since independence till date , yearwise ?
2. what action taken casewise ?
3. are the action taken similar to commoners , common people committing same type of crimes ?
4. did all the cases handled by tainted judges subjected to review , retrial by other honest judges ?
5. how many advocates were prosecuted by court for influencing witnesses / evidences , for tutored / concocted evidences , etc since independence till date , yearwise ? what action ?  if not why ?
6. how many police officials / law enforcing officials were prosecuted by court for influencing , intimidating witnesses through threats , 3rddegree torture , for concocted evidences , etc since independence till date , yearwise ? what action ? if not why ?
7. how many police / law enforcement officials  were prosecuted for lock-up deaths , fake encounters , illegal detention , 3rd degree torture , etc since independence till date , yearwise ? what  action ? if not why ?
8. in how many cases police / law enforcement officials were made to pay compensation to innocent victims who were wrongly charged , detained & tortured , murdered by police , since independence till date , yearwise ? what action ? if not why ?
9. in some cases , on appeal judgements of higher court  turns down the judgement of lower court. In how many such cases , lower court judge is made to pay compensation  to victims of their wrong judgement , since independence till date  yearwise ? what action ? if not why ?
10. how many judges have defaulted in filing their annual  financial returns giving out their wealth , income details , yearwise since  independence till date ? what action ? if not why ?
11. how you are verifying the annual financial returns of judges ?
12. since independence , how many convicts have been sentenced to “death by hanging” , yearwise ?
13. how many death sentances were carried out & how many are pending ?
14. how many police officials were made to pay compensation  & prosecuted for defamation , when innocents falsely charged by police were acquitted , dropped from charges by courts ? if not why ?
15. how many lower court judges were made to pay compensation & prosecuted for defamation , when innocents  wrongly convicted by lower court , but on appeal higher courts acquitting , dropping them of charges ? if not why ?
16. are judges getting paid from public exchequer , for their expenses on liquor / alcohol , body massages , etc in their  TA  DA  bill  while on  tour , official visits , official parties hosted by judges ?
17. how many appeals for justice concerning public welfare , violation of human & fundamental rights , threat to lives / livelihood , etc  were made to supreme court of india , by nagaraja mysore raghupathi alias nagaraja M R alias myself since 1990 till date ? appeals were made through ordinary post , registered post , e-mail & by web through DARPG , DPG. What  ACTION taken by supreme court of india with  respect to each appeal ?
18.  due to negligence / connivance of supreme court judges injustices were meted out to  public & public are still suffering injustices. Crimes which could have been prevented by SC happened eventhough brought to early notice of supreme court. What action against erring SC Judges ? if not why ?
19. I have repeatedly offered my services to supreme court of india , to apprehend criminals  within  judiciary , police & public service. What action taken by supreme court of india ? if not why ?
20. in my legal struggle for justice , due to negligence / connivance of SCI  judges  I have suffered murder attempts on my life , job losses , my newspaper closed , not getting press accreditation to my web news papers , threats by rowdies , police , etc. what action against erring chief justice of india ? if not why ?

23. who are the judges covering-up Rajiv Gandhi assassination case ? what action taken ? if not why ?
24. Law is one & same for all , but law enforcement  & law interpretation  is not same  for common people , Judges  & Police ? why ?



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.

PAY  UP  Justice  R M Lodha ,  Shri  M K Hanjura & Smt Smita Vats Sharma  -  DAMAGES  PAYMENT  /  FINAL SHOW-CAUSE NOTICE TO  CHIEF JUSTICE OF INDIA 

   I don’t  know whether secretariat staff of CJI office  &  DARPG  /  DPG  officials are forwarding my appeals for justice , e-mails to you  or not.  They will be held accountable for their lapses if any.  This notice is against  the repeated failure of constitutional duties  & indirect collusion with criminals by  previous CHIEF  JUSTICEs  OF  INDIA. Notice  is  served against them , to the office of CJI , NOT personally against you. At the individual level  I do whole heartedly   respect  Honourable  Justice  R M  Lodha , Shri M K Hanjura & Smt Smita Vats Sharma.
Please refer my appeal for justice through DARPG ;
DLGLA/E/2013/00292
DEPOJ/E/2013/00679

In india democracy is a farce , freedom a mirage. the most basic freedom RIGHT TO INFORMATION & EXPRESSION , is not honoured by the government,as the information opens up the crimes of V.V.I.Ps & leads to their ill-gotten wealth. The public servants are least bothered about the lives of people or justice to them. these type of fat cats , parasites are a drain on the public exchequer . these people want ,wish me to see dead , wish to see HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH closed . so that, a voice against injustices is silenced forever , the crimes of V.V.I.Ps closed , buried forever.

To my numerous appeals , HRW’s appeals to you ,you have not yet replied. It clearly shows that you are least bothered about the lives of people or justice to them .it proves that you are hell bent to protect the criminals at any cost. you are just pressurising the police to enquire me ,to take my statement, to repeatedly call me to police station all with a view to silence me.all of you enjoy “legal immunity privileges” ,why don’t you have given powers to the police / investigating officer to summon all of you for enquiry ?or else why don’t all of you are not appearing before the police voluntarily for enquiry ?at the least why don’t all of you are not sending your statement about the case to the police either through legal counsel or  through post? you are aiding criminals ,by denying me job oppurtunities in R.B.I CURRENCY NOTE PRESS mysore , city civil court ,bangalore , distict court , mysore ,etc & by illegally closing my newspaper.
there is a gross, total mismatch between your actions and your oath of  office. this amounts to public cheating & moral turpitude on your  part.

1.you are making contempt of the very august office you hold.
2.you are making contempt of the constitution of india.
3.you are making contempt of citizens of india.
4.you are sponsoring & aiding terorrism & organized crime.
5.you are violating the fundamental & human rights of the citizens of  india and of neighbouring countries.
6.you are violating & making contempt of the U.N HUMAN RIGHTS CHARTER  to which india is a signatory.
7.you are obstructing me from performing my fundamental duties as a  citizen of india.
8. As a result of your gross negligence of constitutional duties you have caused me damages / losses to the  tune of  RUPEES  TWO  CRORE ONLY.

you are hereby called upon to  Pay  damages  to me and SHOW-CAUSE within 30 days , why you  cann’t be legally prosecuted for the above mentioned crimes .

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 , etc , the jurisdictional police together with above mentioned accussed public servants , Chief  Justice of India & Jurisdictional District Magistrate  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 anything untoward happens to me or my dependents , 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  judges , police officials , public servants & Constitutional fuctionaries. Thanking you. Jai Hind , Vande Mataram.

ADDRESS OF THE APPLICANT : NAGARAJA.M.R.,
EDITOR , SOS E-VOICE JUSTICE  & SOS E-CLARION OF DALIT ,
# LIG-2 / 761, OPP WATER WORKS OFFICE,
HUDCO FIRST STAGE, LAXMIKANTANAGAR,
HEBBAL, MYSORE , KARNATAKA  PIN – 570017.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 ?

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 ?

DACOITY  by  Mysore  Police  -  An embarrassment for police top brass

Mysore: Southern Range IGP's gunman Prakash has reportedly named some senior policemen as his partners-in-crime in the Rs2-crore seize-swindle scam.
Prakash was thoroughly grilled following his arrest on Tuesday. Sources in the police said PK Garg, additional director general of police of the CID—it being the agency probing the case—interrogated Prakash, the gunman serving IGP K Ramachandra Rao. Sources in the police department did not identify the top cops Prakash has reportedly named.
Sources in police said that two members of the squad that raided the bus were not supposed to be there. When intercepted, the bus was in Yelawal police's jurisdiction, but the police squad had two members working with Bannur police.
Meanwhile, sub-inspector Jagadish and Sathish, who were part of the team that raided the bus, were arrested when they came to Bangalore to apply for anticipatory bail.
DG&IGP Lalrokhuma Pachau has asked the CID to leave no stone unturned in the investigation and to get incriminating evidence against every policeman involved in the case, regardless of his rank.
Police sources said the CID has obtained the telephonic conversation between Prakash and the police informants who tipped him off about the bus carrying the moolah. Sources said Prakash, the informants and the raiding party exchanged many a call the night the bus was raided and the cash was seized.
The case
On January 4, a police team led by sub-inspector CD Jagadeesh intercepted a Kerala-bound private bus belonging to Kalpaka travels at Yelwal about 1.30 am, after receiving information that a huge sum of money was being transported in it.
They reportedly found Rs2.27 crore in the bus, and took the driver Akthar Hussein and cleaner Muneer into custody. The bus was first taken to Yelwal police station and later some policemen asked the driver to park the bus on Mysore-Bantwal Highway.
The policemen allegedly took six bags of money kept in the bus and dumped one of them containing cash Rs20 lakh in the tools box of the vehicle.
While the driver denied that he was aware of the money kept in the tool box, the FIR mentioned that he was illegally carrying cash Rs20 lakh.
After the driver came out on bail, some gold merchants from Kerala accused the police of swindling their money. They claimed that the money was obtained from the sale of gold in Bangalore by their local agents. They also claimed that the money was kept in a secret box located in the middle of the bus floor and that it was known only to the driver.
The gold merchants also approached Kerala home minister Ramesh Chennithala, who asked his Karnataka counterpart to look into the matter. Going by the veracity of the case, the DG & IGP had transferred the investigation to the CID.
Following this, the accused policemen are on the run. Some of them have also applied for anticipatory bail. The CID has so far arrested four people, including the gunman of the IGP and three police informants.
The CID sleuths have requested the court to permit them to book a dacoity case against the accused.

In August 2002, a group led by the then assistant commissioner of police (Traffic-Vijayanagar), A Belliappa, allegedly robbed the employees of a gold merchant from Kozhikode of Rs19 lakh. The errant police staff posed as customs officials and robbed the two employees, who were returning to Kerala in a private bus. Belliyappa was dismissed for his involvement in the case.
In November 2010, Mico Layout police station inspector CN Janardhan was suspended for irregularities. He was charged with misusing recovered property. He had allegedly sold 2.4 kg gold - worth Rs3.45 lakh - that was recovered from the accused in Muthoot Gold Finance theft case. He was also facing several other charges.
In January this year, the police inspector of HAL station Rajesh and three constables were suspended for allegedly extorting Rs3 lakh from an old offender by threatening to book him in a false case. The errant policemen had extorted money from Javed, who had complained about it to DCP (South East). A preliminary internal probe revealed that the policemen had received Rs3 lakh and had distributed the money among themselves and they were suspended later.  Police are on the lookout for Rajesh.
‘Top cops embolden juniors in khaki to play it dirty’
Despite being warned by the chief minister and the home minister to not involve in illegal activities, the Bangalore police personnel, time and again, are caught for their misdeeds.
A retired police officer, requesting anonymity, said policemen involving in illegal activities is an old trend. “The nature of the work demands nexus with people with criminal background to gather information. Ethical policemen use such information for professional requirements only, but some policemen use such information for their personal gain. What is disheartening is that some senior police officers, who have to set an example for their juniors, identify with such policemen and keep them close,” he said.
“The lower-rung policemen get into direct contact with senior officers by neglecting hierarchy. The seniors encourage them to involve in illegal activities and protect them whenever they get into trouble. Making huge money is the sole objective behind this,” he stated.
“Police are exposed to all kind of criminal activities owing to the nature of their work. So, they think that they can easily get away by committing some or the other offence,” another officer said.



Government asks Supreme Court collegium to elevation of Justice KL Manjunath

The government is learnt to have returned a file relating to the elevation of a Karnataka High Court judge as the Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court to the Supreme Court collegium with a request to reconsider its decision.
The Law Ministry is understood to have returned the file relating to the elevation of Justice KL Manjunath as Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court to the Supreme Court collegium headed by Chief Justice of India Justice RM Lodha.
As per practice, Justice Lodha had consulted a senior Supreme Court judge who had served in the Karnataka High Court, on the elevation of Justice Manjunath.
The senior judge had flagged certain issues in his two-page note to the Supreme Court collegium.
Taking note of the issues raised by the senior Supreme Court judge, the Law Ministry returned the file to the collegium with a request to reconsider its recommendation.
As per the Memorandum of Procedure for appointment of High Court judges, the Chief Justice of India sends his recommendation for the appointment of a puisne judge of the High Court as Chief Justice of High Court in consultation with the two senior most judges of the Supreme Court.
He also ascertains the views of the seniormost colleague in the Supreme Court who is conversant with the affairs of the High Court in which the recommendee has been functioning.
If the Supreme Court collegium sticks to its recommendation, the government will have to approve the name.
This for the second time that the NDA government has returned to the Supreme Court collegium file pertaining to appointment of a judge.
Chief Justice Lodha had expressed unhappiness at the government's decision to unilaterally segregate the name of senior lawyer Gopal Subramanium's from three others who were appointed to the top court.
"I fail to understand how the appointment to a high constitutional post has been dealt with in a casual manner. The segregation of Gopal Subramanium's file was done unilaterally without my knowledge and concurrence which was not proper," Justice Lodha had said.
But the government had defended its decision to return the recommendation of the Supreme Court collegium saying its move was based on "proper, cogent and sound" grounds. 

Supreme Court Collegium Takes on Government on Justice KL Manjunath's Appointment

The Supreme Court collegium has reiterated its recommendation to elevate Karnataka High Court judge KL Manjunath as Chief Justice of Punjab and Haryana High Court, turning down the Centre's advice to reconsider it, say sources.

The Top Court's decision sets the stage for another round of confrontation between the executive and the judiciary. The Chief Justice of India, R M Lodha had earlier this month criticized the government for dropping former Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium's name from the panel of names suggested by the collegium for appointment as Supreme Court judges.
 

The latest round of standoff between the two sides arose after the Centre returned the Supreme Court collegium's recommendation on elevating Justice Manjunath, the senior-most judge of the Karnataka High Court, and sought clarification based on complaints against him from a senior judge of the Supreme Court.
 

The Supreme Court Collegium, after examining the complaints, found no merit in them, and reiterated its recommendation to shift Justice Manjunath as Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, sources said.
 

With the Top Court collegium standing firm on its position, the Centre now has no option but to appoint Justice Manjunath as Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.

Karnataka HC judge faces conflict of interest in housing case

A judge of the High Court of Karnataka is set to hear a case that is likely to impact the fate of a housing society plot owned by his daughter.
An investigation by The Hindu shows that K.M. Chaitra, daughter of Justice K.L. Manjunath, was allotted the plot when she was living with her father and showed his residence as her address. The allotment appears to put Justice Manjunath in a position of conflict of interest as he heads a Division Bench that is hearing a public interest litigation (No. 21860/2011) petition related to allotment of housing society plots.
The petitioners in this PIL have questioned a Government Order (GO) passed on November 20, 2010 by the State BJP government. The GO legalises the allotment of housing society plots to non-members by admitting them into the cooperative society as associate members at the time of sale.
Documents accessed by this newspaper show that Ms. Chaitra was not a member of the Vyalikaval House Building Cooperative Society and was made an Associate Member at the time of the allotment of a 5,460 sq. ft plot at Nagawara, an upmarket area on the road to Bengaluru International Airport.
The sale deed dated February 8, 2004 shows that the plot was sold to her for Rs. 6.82 lakh. As on date, the plot is estimated at Rs. 1.63 crore @ Rs. 3,000 per sq. ft. Meanwhile, hundreds of members who joined the housing society in 1984 continue to wait for an allotment.
Significantly, the allotment to Ms. Chaitra was made at a time when she stayed with her father. This is borne out by the fact that the permanent address, mentioned in the sale deed, is that of Justice Manjunath. Further, as per the list of assets declared by the judge, he is the owner of that residence.
Consequently, the allotment appears to be in violation of Section 10 (a) of the government-framed model bye-laws for house building cooperative societies, which mandates that an allottee or her family should not have any other residential property in Bangalore; the same section also bars multiple allotments.
The very rationale for cooperative housing societies rests on the premise that they enable persons who are unable to pay market prices to afford a dwelling unit at subsidised cost. Indeed, Section 10 (a) was in fact inserted in the bye-laws to ensure that only genuine and needy persons are allotted sites. It is for this reason that aspirants were mandatorily required to file affidavits declaring that they do not own any other residential property in the city. This is done in order to weed out applicants who do not demonstrate a dire need for a dwelling unit, a lawyer familiar with the rules said.
Justice Manjunath declined to comment when The Hindu contacted him on Wednesday evening for a response.
Asked for his legal opinion, Team Anna member and Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan said, “The [housing cooperative society] plot allotment scam is a huge one in Karnataka. Justice Manjunath should not hear the case because of conflict of interest. An application can be filed asking him to recuse himself.”
The Vyalikaval House Building Cooperative Society Ltd. has been at the centre of controversy over the past one year.
This is the same society that allotted a 4,012 sq. ft plot to the wife of retired Supreme Court judge and former Lokayukta Shivaraj Patil. When the allegedly irregular allotment was exposed by two newspapers, including The Hindu in September 2011, Mr. Patil resigned as the Lokayukta and returned the controversial plot. Mr. Patil’s post has since been vacant. Two other judges, nominated to succeed Mr. Patil, withdrew from the race after details emerged of their own involvement with housing society allotments.
Former High Court judge and Upalokayukta R. Gururajan too was forced to step down after details of society plots that had been allotted to him in apparent violation of the law were published in the media.

Justice Markandey Katju's Allegations Confirmed by Ex-Law Minister

When asked about why he waited for 10 years to disclose that an allegedly corrupt judge was allowed to continue in office in the Madras High Court, Justice Markandey Katju insisted on NDTV that the "question is not why I did not make this disclosure earlier, the question is whether what I'm saying is correct or not."

When the interviewer pressed for an explanation about his timing, he pulled out his earpiece and ended the interview.
 

Justice Katju, now the chairman of the Press Council of India, was in 2004-5 the Chief Justice of the Madras High Court.  He claims that an Intelligence Bureau investigation sought by him, confirmed the charges, but that three ex-Chief Justices of India made "improper compromises" by refusing to end the term of the judge.
 

Their actions, he said, were the result of political pressure - without naming the DMK, he said that an ally from Tamil Nadu of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh warned it would quit the coalition if the judge was removed.
 

The DMK has denied the allegations with senior leaders saying there was no truth in it. Party chief M Karunanidhi is expected to respond tomorrow.
 

The new BJP government said "Manmohan Singh should clarify what was happening in his regime."
 

Congress leader HR Bhardwaj, who was the Law Minister at the time, confirmed that the judge was backed by a large group of MPs who complained about Justice Katju's opposition.
 

"Around 18 SC/ST MPs met PM Manmohan Singh in 2004 and complained about injustice to the accused additional judge," Mr Bhardwaj told NDTV, adding that "ultimately, the Chief Justice of India cleared the appointment."
 

Justice Katju alleges that Chief Justice RC Lahoti extended the two-year tenure of the controversial judge. Justice YK Sabharwal allegedly gave the corrupt judge another term despite an adverse Intelligence report and Justice KG Balakrishnan confirmed him as permanent judge but transferred him to another state.
 

Justice Lahoti told NDTV, "Everything is a matter of record. I have never done anything wrong in my life." While Justice Balakrishnan, the current chairman of the National Human Rights Commission said that the judge's confirmation was cleared by the Chief Justice of the Madras High Court, but he did what he could.  "There were allegations that this judge was close to the ruling party (the DMK) ...so I transferred him to Andhra Pradesh," he told NDTV.
 

The accused judge had reportedly granted bail to DMK chief M Karunanidhi after his dramatic midnight arrest by the Jayalalithaa government in 2001.


Justice Lahoti, the former Chief Justice of India, when contacted by some media people about my statement which was published on my blog and in Times of India yesterday, generally remarked that he has never done anything wrong in his life. He has not gone into any specifics, so let me put him some specific questions :

1. Is it , or is it not, correct that I first wrote him a letter from Chennai, stating that there were serious allegations of corruption about an Additional Judge of Madras High Court, and therefore he ( Justice Lahoti ) should get a secret intelligence enquiry held against that Additional Judge,and thereafter I personally met Justice Lahoti at Delhi and again requested for a secret IB enquiry against the Additional Judge about whom I had received several complaints, and from several sources, that he was indulging in corruption ?

2. Is it, or is it not, correct that on my request Justice Lahoti ordered a secret IB enquiry against that Judge ?

3. Is it, or is it not correct, that a few weeks after I personally met him in Delhi and then returned to Chennai, he telephoned me from Delhi ( while I was at Chennai ) and told me that the IB, after thorough enquiry, gave a report that indeed the Judge was indulging in corruption ?

4. Is it , or is it not, correct that after receiving the adverse IB report against the Additional Judge, Justice Lahoti, who was then Chief Justice of India, called a meeting of the 3 Judge Supreme Court Collegium, consisting of himself, Justice Sabarwal, and Justice Ruma Pal, and the 3 Judge Collegium, having perused the IB report recommended to the Government of India not to extend the 2 year term of that Additional Judge ?

5. Is it , or is it not, correct that after that recommendation of the 3 Judge Collegium of the Supreme Court was sent to the Government of India, he ( Justice Lahoti ), on his own, without consulting his 2 other Supreme Court Collegium colleagues, wrote a letter to the Government of India asking the Government to give another 1 year term as Additional Judge to the concerned Judge ?

6. If indeed the IB reported, after an enquiry, that the Judge was indulging in corruption, why did he ( Justice Lahoti ) recommend to the Government of India to give that corrupt Judge another term of 1 year as Additional Judge in the High Court ?

Some people have commented about the timing of my statement. What happened was that some Tamilians had commented on Facebook that I am posting several matters on my Facebook post, so I should also post some of my experiences in Madras High Court. Then I started posting about my experiences there, and it was at time I remembered this experience too, and posted it.

There was an Additional Judge of the Madras High Court against whom there were several allegations of corruption. He had been directly appointed as a District Judge in Tamilnadu, and during his career as District Judge there were as many as 8 adverse entries against him recorded by various portfolio Judges of the Madras High Court. But one Acting Chief Justice of Madras High Court by a single stroke of his pen deleted all those 8 adverse entries, and consequently he became an Additional Judge of the High Court, and he was on that post when I came as Chief Justice of Madras High Court in November 2004.

That Judge had the solid support of a very important political leader of Tamilnadu. I was told that this was because while a District Judge he granted bail to that political leader.
 

Since I was getting many reports about his corruption, I requested the Chief Justice of India, Justice Lahoti, to get a secret IB enquiry made about him. A few weeks thereafter, while I was in Chennai, I received a call from the Secretary of the CJI saying that the CJI wanted to talk to me. Justice Lahoti then came on the line and said that what I had complained about had been found true. Evidently the IB had found enough material about the Judge's corruption.
 

Since the 2 year term as Additional Judge of that person was coming to an end I assumed he would be discontinued as a Judge of the High Court in view of the IB report. However what actually happened was that he got another 1 year appointment as an Additional Judge, though 6 other Additional Judges who had been appointed with him were confirmed and made permanent Judges of the High Court.
 

I later learnt how this happened. The Supreme Court Collegium consists of 5 seniormost Judges for recommending names for appointment as a Supreme Court Judge, and 3 seniormost Judges for dealing with High Courts.
 

The 3 senior most Judges in the Supreme Court at that time were the Chief Justice of India, Justice Lahoti, Justice Sabarwal, and Justice Ruma Pal. This Supreme Court Collegium recommended that in view of the adverse IB report the Judge should be discontinued as a High Court Judge after his 2 year term was over, and this recommendation was sent to the Central Government.
 

The Central Government at that time was the UPA Government. The Congress was no doubt the largest party in this alliance, but it did not have a majority in the Lok Sabha, and was dependent on support by it allies. One of such ally was the party in Tamilnadu which was backing this corrupt Judge. On coming to know of the recommendation of the 3 Judge Supreme Court Collegium they strongly objected to it.
The information I got was that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was at that time leaving for New York to attend the U.N. General Assembly Session. At the Delhi airport he was told by the Ministers of that party of Tamilnadu ( who were Congress allies ) that by the time he returns from New York his government would have fallen as that Tamilnadu party would withdraw support to the UPA ( for not continuing that Additional judge ).
 

On hearing this Manmohan Singh panicked, but he was told by a senior Congress minister not to worry, and he would manage everything. That Minister then went to Justice Lahoti and told him there would be a crisis if that Additional Judge of Tamilnadu was discontinued. On hearing this Justice Lahoti sent a letter to the Government of India to give another term of 1 year as additional Judge to that corrupt Judge, ( I wonder whether he consulted his two Supreme Court Collegium members ),and it was in these circumstances this corrupt Judge was given another 1 year term as Additional Judge ( while his 6 batch mates as Additional Judges were confirmed as permanent Judges ). 
 

The Additional Judge was later given another term as Additional Judge by the new CJI Justice Sabarwal, and then confirmed as a permanent judge by the next CJI Justice K.G. Balkrishnan, but transferred to another High Court.

I have related all this to show how the system actually works, whatever it is in theory. In fact in view of the adverse IB report the Judge should not even have been continued as an Additional Judge

Attempt to influence HC judge: A Raja named

In further embarrassment to former Telecom Minister A Raja, the Madras High Court today suspended from the bar a top lawyer who was allegedly involved in an attempt to influence a judge taking the name of the minister.
A Division Bench, comprising Justice F.M.Ibrahim Khalifulla and Justice M.M.Sundaresh, said the status of R K Chandramohan, a member and subsequently as Chairman of the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Pondichery, shall stand suspended forthwith.
He should not not be permitted to function as such pending disciplinary action by the Bar Council of India, the bench said.
Disposing of a petition by a lawyer, the Bench appended a portion of a letter written by a former judge of the court Justice S Reghupati, who had reported that Chandramohan had entered his chamber last year and pleaded that the case of a father and a son, accused in a marks scandal case in Puducherry, for anticipatory bail be considered favourably as they were "family friends of a Union Minister by name Raja".
The lawyer handed over his mobile phone to the judge saying that the "union minister is on the line to have a talk with me".
"I discouraged such conduct of Mr. Chandramohan and told him that the case would be disposed of in accordance with law, if listed before me," Justice Reghupati had said in his letter of July 7, 2009 to the then Chief Justice of India.
Justice Reghupati, who has since retired, had in his letter, complained about the Chandramohan's "outburst and uncontrollable" behaviour.
Earlier, the judge had in the open court last year alleged that a Union Minister, through a lawyer, attempted to speak to him on telephone seeking favours in a case being investigated by CBI posted the matter to another judge. But he had not not named the minister.
In his letter to the CJI, Justice Reghupati had observed that " a counsel, who made an attempt to exert influence on the court by using the name of a Cabinet minister, cannot be allowed to succeed in snatching an order in his favour by advancing threat".
The issue became a raging controversy that the then CJI had told the media that the judge had sent a report to him making it clear that no no union minister spoke to him directly.
Justice Reghupati made those remarks addressing Chandramohan, who was appearing in connection with an anticipatory bail plea by S Kirub Shridhar, a third year student in a private medical college in Puducherry, and his doctor-father Krishnamoorthy.
The bail pleas were moved by Chandramohan on behalf of the two who had been booked by the CBI for allegedly using the services of a Pondicherry University official and a middleman to inflate marks to get a medical seat at the time of admission.
Justice Reghupati, in his letter to the CJI, had observed that Chandramohan made a plea to him that the court should call for the case diary and hear the case with reference to the material collected during the course of investigation.
"I have impressed upon the representing counsel by explicating that a like direction could be given to the prosecution only in the event of a judge satisfying that such course is inevitable and absolutely necessary in a given situation and that on mere demands and as a matter of routine such exercise cannot be undertaken.
"At that time Mr. Chandramohan stood up and made a similar demand and when I emphatically declined to accede to his adamant demand, he vociferously remarked that the Court is always taking sides with the prosecution and not not accepting the submissions made by the counsel for the accused while giving importance to the Prosecutor.
"On such pointless remark, I said that the counsel had engaged to argue on his behalf has made his submission and he is not not supposed to pass such slanderous and derogatory remarks," Justice Reghupati had said in his letter.
The lawyer, who had filed the petition, moved the Court for debarring Chandramohan from continuing as Bar Council Chairman for his alleged misconduct and order the Bar Council of India to take disciplinary action against him.
The Bench also said Justice Reghupathi's letter shall be under the custody of the Registrar General in a sealed cover which, however, shall be part of the case.

Ex-CJI was aware of Raja influencing judge: SC Judge
In an embarrassment to former CJI K G Balakrishnan, Supreme Court Judge H L Gokhale today contradicted his claim that he was not aware that it was former Union Telecom Minister A Raja, who had tried to influence a Madras High Court judge in a criminal case.
In a statement, Justice Gokhale, who was the chief justice of the Madras High Court at that time, said that in his letter to Justice Balakrishnan, the then CJI, he had clearly referred to the name of Raja.
Justice Gokhale's statement totally contradicts Justice Balakrishnan's claim that there was no mention of any Union Minister in the report sent by Justice Gokhale, then High Court Chief Justice, on Justice S Reghupathi episode.
"I regret to say that the allegations are absolutely incorrect," Balakrishan had said last week referring to news reports that he had suppressed a letter purportedly written by Justice Reghupathi to him when he was Chief Justice of India.
In a statement today, Justice Gokhale said, "The former CJI has stated in his press conference that in my letter I did not mention the name of any Union Minister having talked to Justice Reghupathi over phone to influence him."
"With respect to this statement I may point out that Justice Reghupathi's letter was already with him and in the second paragraph thereof justice Reghupathi had specifically mentioned the name of Raja.
"I had no personal knowledge about the incident and observations in my reply wherein are in conformity with the contents of Justice Reghupathi's," Justice Gokhale said.

Daughter-in-law files dowry harassment case against AP High Court judge in Chennai


The daughter-in-law of a sitting Andhra Pradesh High Court judge has filed a dowry harassment complaint against her husband and his family members.  Kavya Rao (30) a resident of Chennai came to the Chennai Police Commissioner's officer on Wednesday afternoon and filed the formal complaint.  In her complaint Kavya said her father,  a Chennai based businessman arranged her wedding with the High Court judge's son in 2007.  She said during their marriage her parents had paid
 Rs.43.5 lakh as dowry, but the judge and his wife and other relatives demandedRs.50 lakh more.  Kavya also said that her husband lost his job in 2008 and hence they moved from Bangalore to Hyderabad.  "Ever since the harassment began and my in - laws pressurised me to bring in atleast 50 lakhs rupees immediately"

Kavya in her complaint also submitted that since her family could not arrange this much money immediately she was made to starve by her inlaws.  But after some time her parents gave her inlaws money at frequent intervals. When she could not tolerate the agony she returned to Chennai to live with her parents.  

But even after that the troubles did not end for her , her father-in-law lodged a false complaint against her father.  On the instigations of the judge, abduction and theft cases were filed against my father she said and added the judge is influencing the police in Chennai.  Her husband came to her house in Chennai a week ago and ransacked it . Kavya has a small baby girl. In her complaint she said her husband, mother-in-law and father-in-law are attempting to abduct her child.

The complaint was filed with the Additional Commissioner of Police (headquarers) R.S. Nallasivam.  It was later forwarded to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Adayar range for further investigations.  "We have informed the Chief Justice of India.  The AP High Court judge is attempting to influence the local police here.  We will wait for four or five days.  If the Police does not take any action we will move the Madras High Court for direction to the Chennai Police Commissioner to take suitable action in this regard"  said K.Balu, advocate of Kavya in an interveiw with India Today Online.




Why was Justice Shah bypassed for elevation to the Supreme Court?

In October 2008, The Government of India recommended to the collegium of the Supreme Court that Justice Ajit Shah of the Delhi High Court should be elevated to the Supreme Court.

He was not elevated, though the Government tried twice. Judges junior to him were recommended.

Any idea why? Is it because he allowed the Supreme Court to come within the ambit of the RTI?



Uday Lalit to be new Supreme Court judge after Gopal Subramaniam controversy

A day after the Union Budget 2014 was presented, the Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance government has zeroed in on Uday Lalit as the new judge of the Supreme Court of India. Senior lawyer Uday Lalit was also the special prosecutor in the controversial 2G spectrum case. The development came in after NDA didn’t support the candidature of former Solicitor-General Gopal Subramaniam’s appointment as the Supreme Court judge.
Amit Shah, who was appointed as the Bharatiya Janata Party president on Thursday, July 10, had earlier availed services of Uday Lalit in two eminent criminal cases. Amit Shah was accused like murder and conspiracy along with Uday Lalit. Three other senior High Court judges were suggested by the Supreme Court bench comprising Rajendra Mal Lodha, Chief Justice of India.
The appointment of Uday Lalit comes days after the Narendra Modi government refused to support Gopal Subramaniam as the next Supreme Court judge. Uday Lalit’s appointment also douses the controversy over Subramaniam’s candidature as an Apex Court judge.
“I’m fully conscious that my independence as a lawyer is causing apprehensions that I will not toe the government line. This factor has been decisive in refusing to appoint me,” said Gopal Subramaniam in his letter to Chief justice of India.
The BJP government rejected the suggestion of Subramaniam’s appointment and requested the Supreme Court bench to reconsider it. Subramanian has also alleged that there was a smear campaign against him and the charges levelled against him were false.
Others who were recommended for the role were Orissa High Court Chief Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel, senior advocate Rohinton Nariman, and Calcutta High Court Chief Justice Arun Mishra.

Gopal Subramaniam controversy: Govt overstepped its boundaries, says CJI Lodha

In an assertion that may pitch the government and the top judiciary head-on, Chief Justice of India RM Lodha on Tuesday said that the government had acted unilaterally in segregating the name of former solicitor general Gopal Subramanium from the panel of four names, recommended by the collegium for appointment as apex court judges.
Chief Justice Lodha made this disclosure at a function organised to bid farewell to Justice BS Chauhan, who retired yesterday.
"The segregation (of Subramanium's name) was unilaterally done by the executive (government) without my knowledge and consent," Chief Justice Lodha said at the function.
"The first thing I have taken objection to that the segregation of Subramanium's proposal from other three proposals unilaterally by the executive without my knowledge and concurrence was not proper," he said.

The apex court collegium had recommended four names including that of another former solicitor general Rohinton Nariman for appointment as judges of the Supreme Court but the government, while clearing three names, returned the name of Subramanium for reconsideration by the collegium.
While Chief Justice Lodha expressed his dismay with the government segregating Subramanium's name and returning his recommendation, he also expressed regret over Subramanium jumping the gun and releasing to the media a letter written to him while he was abroad.
He said that he had asked Subramanium to wait for him to return and deal with the matter.
Chief Justice Lodha said that soon after reaching Delhi, he had a 75 minute meeting with Subramanium and asked him to reconsider his letter withdrawing his consent to be a judge of the top court.
"Subramanium told me that he would get back the next day but instead he sent a brief letter expressing his inability to revisit his decision to withdraw the consent" he said.
"Independence of judiciary will never be compromised," Chief Justice Lodha assured the members of the bar present at the function as he referred to the excerpts of Subramanium's letter wherein the latter had said: "I am, however, unable to dispel the sense of unease that the judiciary has failed to assert its independence by respecting the likes and dislikes of the executive."
Describing as "shocking" the allegation of independence of the judiciary being compromised, Chief Justice Lodha said that he will not stay in the post even for a minute if the independence of the judiciary was compromised.
Saying that he was a fierce upholder of the independence of the judiciary, he said that he had worked for the institution first as a judge of a high court, then of the apex court and now as the Chief Justice of India.
Clearly sounding hurt at fingers being pointed at the independence of judiciary, he said: "For last more than 20 years, I fought for independence of judiciary and to me this is one subject which is not negotiable. At no cost, the independence of judiciary can be allowed to be compromised."
"I will be the first man to leave this chair...if I know that judiciary's independence has been compromised. I will not hold my office for a second," he asserted.

Govt not entitled to judge my character: Gopal Subramanium to CJI

Putting an end to the ongoing controversy over his nomination by a Supreme Court collegium for the post of a judge in the apex court, former solicitor general Gopal Subramanium has withdrawn his candidature.
According to reports, the senior lawyer withdrew his candidature from the judge's post on Wednesday following media reports which said the NDA government objecting to his appointment as a Supreme Court judge, because of his 'links' with corporate lobbyist Nira Radia and a 'negative' CBI report.
The government is understood to have returned the recommendation for his appointment to the apex court to its collegium with a request to reconsider the decision.
Sources in the government said while returning the recommendation relating to the former Solicitor General to the collegium headed by Chief Justice of India R M Lodha, the government cleared the other names for appointment.
Those cleared were Calcutta High Court Chief Justice Arun Mishra, Orissa High Court Chief Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel and senior advocate Rohinton Nariman. The warrants of appointments in these cases are likely to be issued by the Rashtrapati Bhavan shortly, the sources said.

 The government is learnt to have sent a note to the collegium giving out reasons for its reservations over appointing Subramanium to the apex court.
As amicus curiae in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case, Subramanium was critical of the Gujarat government headed by Narendra Modi and brought out new facts on the basis of which the Supreme Court had ordered a CBI probe into the case.
As per the Memorandum of Procedure relating to the appointment of Supreme Court judges, the government can return the file for reconsideration once. But if the collegium reiterates its recommendation, the government has to comply with it.
There is no fixed time frame for the government to appoint a judge once the recommendation is reiterated by the collegium. It is very rare that the collegium recommends names of lawyers to be appointed as Supreme Court judges.
Justice N Santosh Hegde was the last lawyer to have been elevated directly to the SC. Hegde was appointed as a judge of the apex court in 1999.

CID chargesheets 6 officials in KPSC scam

The criminal investigation department (CID) has filed a chargesheet against six officials of the Karnataka Public Service Commission (KPSC) in connection with alleged irregularities in the recruitment of 162 Group-A and 200 Group-B gazetted probationers in 2011.

The 10,521-page chargesheet names former KPSC chairman Gonal Manjappa, special officer Arunachalam S, Ashok Kumar B, personal assistant to KPSC member Mangala Sridhar, and officials Sudhir alias Sridhar, Somanath M Chikkamath alias Somesh and K Rajshekhar as accused.

CID sources said KPSC member Mangala Sridhar and former KPSC secretary Sunder are yet to be chargesheeted as investigations against them are still on. The chargesheet was submitted to the 23rd additional city city civil and sessions judge.

The six officials have been charged under sections 119 (concealing design to commit offence by a public servant); 166 (disobeyance by public servant); 167 (framing incorrect documents by a public servant); 468 (forgery for the purpose of cheating); 201(causing disappearance of evidence) and 465 (forgery) read with 37 (cooperation in committing offence) of the Indian Penal Code.

Some sections under the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988 have also been invoked against them.

The CID said they had taken 216 witness accounts while investigating the case, which was first registered at the Vidhana Soudha police station in January 2013 on complaints from candidates. They accused the KPSC of overlooking them and allegedly favouring those not qualified in written or oral examinations.

What is the case

The scandalous recruitment scam, nicknamed as the cash-for-jobs racket, was registered in June last year with Vidhana Soudha police and later referred to the CID.

The case was filed by the department of personnel and administrative reforms (DPAR), which forwarded the complaints of Dr Mythri and Ajay G with a note to register a first information report (FIR).

Legal experts in the directorate of prosecution recommended that a case be registered. It was then referred to the CID on the director general of police (DGP)'s recommendation.

The scandal relates to the examination held for 362 gazetted probationers' posts (KAS Groups A and B) in April-May 2013.

 Supreme Court vs government over promotions for three judges

The Supreme Court collegium is sticking to its decision of elevating the chief justices of the High Courts of Orissa, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu to the top court, sources have told NDTV.

The collegium had nominated Orissa High Court Chief Justice V Gopala Gowda, Karnataka High Court Chief Justice Vikramjit Sen and Madras High Court Chief Justice M Y Eqbal, but the government had asked it to reconsider the names and also whether the panel had considered allegations against them.

The collegium, comprising of five senior judges and headed by the Chief Justice of India Altamas Kabir, in its reply to the government reportedly said it has already considered the allegations raised but was satisfied with the names and cleared their names for elevation.

The government will now have to approve the names of these three judges as under the present system, if the collegium sends back the names, then the government is bound to consider them for elevation.

Indian Judiciary stands in Cross Road


Indian Judiciary stands in Cross Road,lawyers in Orissa High Court comment. Judges in higher judiciary including Supreme Court of India are now brought to the touch stone of integrity and morale values .Judges are human being not the god as we address them in an anglicized words as “My lord,your lordship and the like”  and all human instincts are in them as a result of which Justice A.K.Ganguly has been brought under the scanner but that can also be avoided by forming a panel to examine the truthfulness as that of the panel constituted in the case ofsex scandal against three judges of Karnatak High Court namely Justice N.S.VeerbhadraiahJustice Chandrasekhariah and Justice V.Gopal Gowda by a committee comprising of Chief Justice of Bombay High Court -Justice C.K  Thakkar ,Chief Justice of Kerala High Court :Justice G.L.Gupta and the then senior judge of Orissa High court :Justice A.K.Patnaik and the voice of the people in the country appeared to have been chocked under the threat of Contempt of Court,but fact remains ,the intellectuals were not happy the manner ,the three judges were given the clean chit by the judges themselves regardless of the existing investigating mechanism upon which the judiciary ,at the main, rely upon. Once a domain for particular expertise is devised ,is it at all proper to be a judge of one’s own cause. The judges brought under scanning then and for whom entire judiciary in our country was blamed have also been rewarded with their time to time elevation; and on the other hand, any judicial member in subordinate judiciary if brought under the threat of any such allegation are being dispensed with  .Umpteen number of instances are now surfaced. As per opinion survey ,the Odisha Bulletin Bureau has collected the views from intellectuals of different field of expertise, the judges are in pivotal post of passing the rulings but the efficiency of a judge now matters and that being so ,selection of the judges ought to be kept away from the reach of monopolist mechanism of a group ,may it be judiciary or bureaucratic or the political masters those are always found to be in neck deep  corruption  ; and a set of standard of rigorous principle of selection has to be adopted to prevent unworthy personalities from joining  judiciary embodied with  the threat of Re-Call mechanism and a dynastic  approachin the selection of judges should not have direct or indirect influence on the issue .Now- a-days ,it is invariably seen that judges breeds judges regardless merit or suitability for the highest constitutional post of the country ; it is also seen that the children of the judges or the relations, as the case may be , practicing in courts are appearing to be loaded with cases from private and also government agencies meaning thereby that fertility germinates no sooner one of the family members becomes gets elevation to judgeship. Open corridor discussion suggests ,relation of many judges in the High Court Judicature of Orissa have managed to create name ,fame and fortune within shortest tenure of their practicing  law .The theory of  uncle judge has had its vital role in Orissa High Court.
In order to get rid of public blame and in order to save the image of judiciary ,now hence the judge selection ought to  be done  with care and caution ,not by favoritism.In Orissa ,it is seen, judges elevated to Supreme court are having lot of tours to the state as that of a politicians more likely as Constituency Judge and are apprehend to have been twisting the selection process and this has become a common and open scene  for Orissa High Court. Within last couple of months judges from supreme court have made their recurring and successive visits to the state for this plea or other and therefore ,public comment on  them being the Constituency Judges.
Be you ever so high ,the law is above you, CJI P. Sadasivam told .In this juncture taking the probing mechanism to the judiciary itself bye-passing the established mechanism of probing and / or investigation is nothing but arresting the democracy of the country,public comment; and therefore,Justice Ganguly be allowed to face the investigating agency with due regard to his law making process ,not law breaking when it comes to his person.
Before law ,every body should be treated equally ,may he be Asharam, Tarun Tejpal , Justice A.K.GangulyJustice Altmas Kabir and the like .
In Orissa High Court  , half a dozen of judges are alleged to have grabbed land of the govt in concessional rates in the guise of discretionary quota ,but nothing happened in spite of best efforts being put from different quarters of the society and adding few more instances ,it is surprising ,Justice P.k.Tripathy during his active tenure has unauthorisedly acquired more than one acres of land in CDA and carried on cultivation by employing staffs of Orissa High court ,but nothing happened because he was after all a judge and the person to address on such illegality is also nothing but a judge in fact and in the close neighbourhood.Gradually , the temple of justice is  losing the confidence of the people ,bad sign for the democracy.
Dreaming to have a country  shaping into progressive modernity can be destroyed if judiciary ,last hope of the common mass, lost to the scanner.

UPA Lok Ayukta should have clean image: MF Saldanha to governor

Justice Chandrashekaraiah’s appointment as the second Upa Lok Ayukta has been questioned by Justice MF Saldanha, also a former judge of the Karnataka high court.
Justice Chandrashekaraiah’s appointment as the second Upa Lok Ayukta has been questioned by Justice MF Saldanha, also a former judge of the Karnataka high court. 
In a letter written to governor HR Bhardwaj, Justice Saldanha said the highest standard must be maintained to uphold the institution of the Lok Ayukta.
 
DNAhas a copy of the letter written by Saldanha to the governor.
 
Justice Saldanha pointed out that Chandrashekaraiah did not hold a clean record, and named the controversies that the latter was involved in — including the infamous Mysore Roost Resort scandal. Saldanha requested the governor to choose a person with a clean track record for the post of Lok Ayukta.
Chandrashekaraiah was appointed the second Upa Lok Ayukta on January 21, while the state government and governor Bhardwaj were already engaged in a bitter battle over the appointment of Lok Ayukta. The governor has thrice rejected the state government’s recommendation to appoint former Kerala high court Chief Justice SR Bannurmath as Lok Ayukta of Karnataka.
 
The second Upa Lok Ayukta’s post had been lying vacant since October, when Justice R Gururajan resigned citing family and health issues.
Summarising the controversies in which Justice Chandrashekaraiah was involved, Saldanha alleged that the former was involved in the Roost Resort sex scandal. Saldanha also cited a case where Chandrashekaraiah was beaten up with slippers by a schoolmaster, who accused the judge of siding with the accused.
Justice Saldanha said: “The post of Upa Lok Ayukta is very important and sensitive. The appointee must inspire total confidence and if there is even a slight blemish in his track record, it would disqualify the candidate.” He further pointed out that citizens should be informed about the name that has been recommended and be given enough time to post their objections, if any, to the government.
 
“But in the case of Chandrashekaraiah, no one was aware that his name was recommended and he was sworn in before any material could have been placed before the appointing authority. Such degree of speed can be damaging,” Justice Saldanha said.
Speaking to DNA, Justice Saldanha said: “The crucial appointment of Lok Ayukta is yet to be done. Let the person appointed have a clean and clear track record. Let not the mistakes made in the appointment for Upa Lok Ayukta be repeated. The Upa Lok Ayukta appointment was made in a hushed manner.”
DNA, in a series of reports, had pointed out that judges of the Karnataka high court and Supreme Court were allotted sites by the Karnataka State Judicial Employees House Building Co-operative Society, in violation of by-laws.
 
Justice Chandrashekaraiah was also allotted a site when he was the judge of the high court.
On this issue, Justice MF Saldanha said: “A member of the higher judiciary is a constitutional functionary and cannot claim to be a judicial employee. He cannot avail a site meant for an employee and it is bad. This position was held by the 1995 division bench of the Karnataka high court.” When DNA contacted Chandrashekaraiah, he hit out at Saldanha and refused to comment on the letter.

ex-CJI Balakrishnan pushed for elevation of corrupt judge

After targeting former Chief Justice of India SH Kapadia, Press Council of India (PCI) chairperson Justice Markandey Katju on Monday trained guns at the then Chief Justice of India (CJI) KG Balakrishnan.
Stoking a fresh controversy, Katju alleged CJI Balakrishnan had pushed for the elevation of a Madras High Court judge with "bad reputation" to the Supreme Court.
He said that the collegium headed by Justice Balakrishnan and also having Justice Kapadia "almost suceeded" in bringing the judge to the apex court but lawyers in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu thwarted it by producing "voluminous documentary evidence of his corruption."
Justice K G Balakrishnan, chairman of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), was not immediately available for comments with his office stating that he is on an official tour to Malaysia and will be back this weekend.
Katju had earlier accused Justice Balakrishnan and two other former CJIs of "improper compromises" in retaining a Tamil Nadu judge under corruption cloud during United Progressive Alliance rule. Justice Balakrishnan had dubbed the allegations as baseless.
A former judge of the Supreme Court, Katju made the fresh claims on his blog while also reacting to remarks made by Justice Kapadia, in response to his Sunday's post. Justice Kapadia had said that he had not brought to Supreme Court any unfit judge.
Katju also charged three former Chief Justices of India including YK Sabharwal and KG Balakrishnan of succumbing to the pressure from the then government headed by Dr. Manmohan Singh. Katju though did not named the soutern political party for exerting the pressure, it was a known fact that he was referring to the DMK which had 18 MPs in the UPA I. The judge in question Justice S. Ashok Kumar died in 2009.
"I may remind him (Kapadia) that the Supreme Court collegium, headed by (then) CJI K G Balakrishnan, and of which Justice Kapadia was a member, almost succeeded in bringing a totally unfit person into the Supreme Court," Katju said.
"That judge was a judge of the Madras High Court when I was Chief Justice there, so I knew all about his bad reputation. Later, he was made Chief Justice of another High Court, and was being considered for elevation to the Supreme court," he further said.
Katju said that one day during lunch interval, he went to Justice Kapadia's chamber and told him about the "bad reputation" of that judge, giving details.
"I told him that I was not in the Supreme Court collegium, but he was, and now it was for him to do whatever he thinks proper, and I have done my duty. There was no use informing Justice Balakrishnan since it was he who was pushing for the judge's elevation to the Supreme Court," he wrote.
Katju further said that after listening to him, Justice Kapadia thanked him and said that in future also if he has such information it should be passed on to him.
"Despite this, the collegium, of which Justice Kapadia was a member, recommended the name of that judge having questionable integrity, and he would have definitely been elevated to the Supreme Court but for the Tamil Nadu lawyers who produced voluminous documentary evidence of his corruption," Katju wrote. 
Former Attorney General Soli Sorabjee said the collegium system is not perfect but attacking it the way it has been by a former SC judge is not desirable.
"You cannot level personal attacks like this on Chief Justice and some of the other judges," he said responding to Katju's blog.
Former High Court judge RS Sodhi said the judiciary should not be treated in this manner. "Don't go around maligning it because you are going to be undermining the efficacy of the institution. Judiciary cannot be called corrupt like that."
Senior advocate Majeed Memon said the faith of the common man in judiciary is shaking. "We should work together not only to sustain but also enhance the faith of the people in the system," he said.
Katju recalled that the judge in question was consequently transferred to a small High Court, and later impeachment proceedings were brought against him in Parliament, which lapsed when he resigned.
"So Justice Kapadia's claim that he did not bring any corrupt judge to the Supreme Court, has to be qualified by at least one instance where he (or rather the collegium of which he was a member) almost succeeded," Katju said.
He further added that even though he had informed Justice Kapadia about that "judge's reputation", neither the collegium, nor Justice Balakrishnan ever consulted him on the matter.
This was obviously done by Justice Balakrishnan "knowing that if consulted I would give an adverse report. But why did Justice Kapadia not tell Justice Balakrishnan to consult me?," he added.
Katju said that he had later reminded Justice Kapadia that he had informed him about the "bad reputation" of that judge, but no heed was paid to his words. I said that the Supreme Court could have been saved so much embarrassment if my advice had been sought, Katju wrote.
"Justice Kapadia admitted that I had informed him, but said that Justice Balakrishnan, the CJI, was adamant, and so the recommendation was made," he added.



There was a Judge in a High Court who had a very bad reputation about his integrity, and on this account was transferred to Allahabad High Court. Later with passage of time he became very senior and Acting Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court.

Some people started demanding that he be made Chief Justice of some High Court, and later brought to the Supreme Court.

The then Chief Justice of India, Justice Kapadia, had received several complaints about this Judge that even at Allahabad he was indulging in corruption,and Justice Kapadia requested me to find out the true facts about that Judge ( I was then a Judge of the Supreme Court).

At that time I had to go to Allahabad, my home town for attending a function, and while there I contacted some lawyers I knew, and got 3 mobile numbers of the agents of this Judge through whom he was taking money. On returning to Delhi I gave these 3 mobile numbers to Justice Kapadia, and suggested that he get these numbers tapped through intelligence agencies. 

About 2 months thereafter Justice Kapadia told me that he had done as I had suggested, and the conversations tapped revealed the corruption of this Judge.

After this, Justice Kapadia should have called this Judge to Delhi and asked for his resignation, failing which he would refer the matter to Parliament for impeachment, but he did no such thing,(though he did not allow the Judge to become Chief Justice of any High Court or a Supreme Court Judge)

Most Chief Justices of India are reluctant to expose corruption in the judiciary thinking that this will defame the judiciary, and so they prefer to bury corruption under the carpet, not realizing that the bulge under the carpet will show. 

Some think that exposing corruption defames the judiciary. My reply to such people is : Does corruption by Judges defame the judiciary, or does exposing such corruption defame it ?

I may give another example. When I was Acting Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court I went to Delhi and met Justice Lahoti, the then Chief Justice of india, and gave him a chit containing names of 5 judges of Allahabad High Court who were doing shocking things. Justice Lahoti asked me what should be done ? I replied that if he permitted, I would solve the problem in 24 hours. He asked, how ?

I replied that I was going back to Allahabad by the night train, and on reaching there would call the Registrar General and tell him to telephone these 5 Judges, and tell them that the Chief Justice had instructed that they would not be allowed entry into the High Court premises. Police was being posted at the gate of the High Court with instruction from me that these judges were not to be allowed entry. Their chambers had been locked, and they will receive their salary checks at home, and they need not come to the High Court. I did not want to see them inside the High Court premises as they had disgraced the High Court.

When I said this Justice Lahoti said "Please do not do this, because then the politicians will get a handle, and then they will set up a National Judicial Commission". I replied that since he was not permitting me to do this, i would not, but he may take whatever action he thought fit.

Later some of the 5 judges whose names I gave were transferred to another High Court.

But is transfer a solution ? Such corrupt judges should be sacked, but this is not done to ' avoid defaming the judiciary'. I again ask : does corruption by Judges defame the judiciary, or does exposing such corruption defame it ?

I have given only two instances of corruption in this post, but I can give several more.

Gwalior additional judge says she was sexually harassed by HC judge, quits

An additional district and sessions judge in Gwalior, who was heading the Vishaka committee against sexual harassment, could not save herself from the prying eyes of a Madhya Pradesh high court judge and had to resign from judicial service to protect her "dignity, womanhood and self-esteem".

After practicing law for 15 years in Delhi courts, she passed the MP Higher Judicial Service exam and was posted in Gwalior on August 1, 2011. After training under Justice D K Paliwal, she was posted as additional district and sessions judge in Gwalior in October 2012.

In April 2013, she was appointed chairperson of District Vishaka Committee. Her annual confidential report of January 2014 termed her work "excellent and outstanding". But that was not enough. The administrative judge from Gwalior bench of Madhya Pradesh HC kept pestering her to visit him in his bungalow alone, she alleged.
In her complaint to Chief Justice of India R M Lodha and Supreme Court judges Justices H L Dattu, T S Thakur, Anil R Dave, Dipak Misra and Arun Misra, as well as the MP HC chief justice, she said the administrative judge sent her a message through the district registrar to "perform dance on an item song" at a function in his residence. She avoided the function on the pretext of her daughter's birthday.

Responding to her complaint, Justice Lodha said, "This is the only profession where we refer to our colleagues as brothers and sisters. This is unfortunate. I will take appropriate action after the complaint is placed before me."






The very next day of sending a message to dance in his residence, the administrative judge told her that "he missed the opportunity of viewing a sexy and beautiful figure dancing on the floor and that he is desperate to see the same", she alleged.

The judge got angry when she did not pay heed to his "various advances and malicious aspirations". She was subjected to intense scrutiny by the administrative judge. He got more agitated when no fault was found, she said.

"I started commencing court at 10.30 am instead of 11 am and extended the working hours in the evening by one hour to 6 pm," she said but complained that this did not appease the administrative judge, who continued to harass her.

Tired of harassment, she along with her husband on June 22 went to meet the administrative judge, who was "irritated" to find her with her husband and asked her to meet him after 15 days. But even before 15 days could have elapsed, she was served with a transfer order.

In her complaint, she said, "The administrative judge, along with district judge and district judge (inspection), possibly made a false, frivolous, baseless and malicious reporting to the chief justice of MP and got me transferred on July 8, in the mid-academic session of my daughters to a remote place Sidhi by overruling the transfer policy of MP HC."





Her representation for eight-month extension to allow her daughters complete the academic session was rejected. Left with no choice, she called on the administrative judge and pleaded against the abrupt transfer saying it would affect the studies of her child who was in Class 12.

In her complaint, she said, "Mockingly, he replied that I faced this mid-academic session transfer to Sidhi for not fulfilling his aspirations and for not visiting his bungalow alone even once and he also threatened me that now he will spoil my career completely and make sure that I face ruinous prospects all my life."

She claimed the HC chief justice declined to meet her when she wanted to apprise him of the situation. "I was left with no option but to resign, so, I resigned on July 15 in compelling, humiliating and disgraceful circumstances to save my dignity, womanhood, self-esteem and career of my daughter."

Seeking justice from the CJI, she said, "Only because the perpetrator is as powerful as an 'administrative judge' that he can cast an evil eye on me, and I do not even get a hearing. What system are we following and leading this democracy to? If this is how a mother, sister and wife can be treated, who is herself no less than a judicial officer duty-bound to protect society and law, what constitutional goals are we serving?"

Madhya Pradesh sexual assault on Woman Judge


Cases of harassment at the workplace have become an everyday affair. But this time, the victim is not a regular office goer. She is an Additional District and Sessions Court Judge in Madhya Pradesh. The woman judge incidentally was also heading the Vishaka Committee against sexual harassment, but could not save herself from the snooping eyes of a Madhya Pradesh High Court Judge and had to give up her service to protect her dignity and self-esteem.
As if this was not enough, the woman Judge was asked to dance to a Bollywood item song by her harasser. According to reports, the administrative judge asked her to “perform dance on an item song” at a function at his home and influenced her transfer to a remote location despite her requests. However, she excused herself citing her daughter’s birthday.
In her complaint, she alleged that the High Court Judge also forced her to visit his bungalow alone, which she never did. The woman Judge was transferred in the middle of her daughter’s Class 12 academic session. When she protested, she was told this was happening because she did not fulfill his aspirations. In her complaint, she said, “Mockingly, he replied that I faced this mid-academic session transfer to Sidhi for not fulfilling his aspirations and for not visiting his bungalow alone even once and he also threatened me that now he will spoil my career completely and make sure that I face ruinous prospects all my life.”

She claimed the HC Chief Justice declined to meet her when she wanted to apprise him of the situation. “I was left with no option but to resign. So I resigned on July 15 in compelling, humiliating and disgraceful circumstances to save my dignity, womanhood, self-esteem and career of my daughter.”
In her compliant to Chief Justice of India RM Lodha and Supreme Court judges Justices HL Dattu, TS Thakur, Anil R Dave, Dipak Misra and Arun Misra, as well as the Madhya Pradesh HC Chief Justice, she said, “Only because the perpetrator is as powerful as an ‘Administrative Judge’ that he can cast an evil eye on me and I do not even get a hearing. What system are we following and leading this democracy to? If this is how a mother, sister and wife can be treated — who is herself no less than a judicial officer duty-bound to protect society and law — what Constitutional goals are we serving?”, a Times of India report said.
She further states that the administrative judge, along with district judge and district judge (inspection), possibly made a false, frivolous, baseless and malicious reporting to the Chief Justice of MP and got me transferred on July 8, in the mid-academic session of my daughters to a remote place Sidhi by overruling the transfer policy of MP HC.”
The Times of India report further quotes Justice Lodha saying, “This is the only profession where we refer to our colleagues as brothers and sisters. This is unfortunate. I will take appropriate action after the complaint is placed before me.”
The victim passed the MP Higher Judicial Service exam and was posted in Gwalior on August 1, 2011. After training under Justice DK Paliwal, she was posted as additional district and sessions judge in Gwalior in October 2012. In April 2013, she was appointed chairperson of District Vishaka Committee. Her annual confidential report of January 2014 termed her work “excellent and outstanding”. But that was not enough.
It has been more than a year since the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act was passed. But it seems that the Act is powerful only on the paper and nothing more as several companies fail to implement them. The vast majority of companies and several establishments are still trying to figure out what to do. According to the Press Information Bureau of the Government of India, “The Act will ensure that women are protected against sexual harassment at all work places, be it in public or private. This will contribute to realisation of their right to gender equality, life and liberty and equality in working conditions everywhere. The sense of security at the workplace will improve women’s participation in work, resulting in their economic empowerment and inclusive growth.”
However, it is an irony that this case comes at a time when the Central Government has directed all the State Governments to provide 33 per cent reservation for women in their police forces to effectively deal with cases of sexual violence and crime against women. Only time will tell if this will become a reality soon or not.

Indian police 'gang-rape woman after she fails to pay bribe'
Woman says she was attacked at a police station in Uttar Pradesh after going there to seek her husband's release

An Indian woman has said she was gang-raped by four officers at a police station, the latest in a string of sex attacks in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
The woman said she was attacked when she went to the station overnight on Monday in the Hamirpur district to seek her husband's release.
"At 11.30pm when there was no one in the room the sub-inspector took me to his room and raped me inside the police station," the woman told CNN-IBN.
She filed a complaint with a senior officer on Wednesday over the attack, which allegedly occurred when she refused to pay a bribe to secure the release of her husband. Virendra Kumar Shekhar, a police official from Hamirpur, said: "The procedure will be followed. The victim has filed a complaint and the guilty will be arrested soon."
Sub-inspector Balbir Singh said a criminal case had been lodged against four officers from the station.
The case is the latest in a string of rapes and murders in Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state, where the chief minister, Akhilesh Yadav, is under growing political pressure over his handling of law and order.
Last month, two girls, aged 12 and 14, were gang-raped and lynched in their village. They were attacked after going into a field to relieve themselves at night because they did not have a lavatory at home.
Their families refused to cut the bodies down from the tree for hours in protest, saying police had failed to take action against the attackers because the girls were from a low caste.
The prime minister, Narendra Modi, , in his first comments on the issue since the hanging of the girls sparked public outrage, on Wednesday urged all politicians to work together to protect women. Modi warned politicians against "politicising rape", saying they were "playing with the dignity of women" in his first speech to parliament since sweeping to power at last month's election.
India brought in tougher laws last year against sexual offenders after the fatal gang-rape of a student in New Delhi in December 2012, but they have failed to stem the tide of violence against women.
Also on Wednesday, a 45-year-old woman was found hanging from a tree in Uttar Pradesh. Her family said she had been raped and murdered. A police officer said five men were being questioned over the incident, which occurred several kilometres from her home in Bahraich district. "They [her husband and son] have alleged that the woman, before being strung up from the tree, was raped and murdered by these men," the district superintendent Happy Guptan told AFP.
 


RAPIST   Judges   &   Rapist   Police  -  No  punishment  ?
When  a  Judge  Himself   Commits   Crime  ,  When  a  POLICE  Himself  robs , Murders ….

In  the  rape case of  Ms.Nirbhaya committed last year in New Delhi , all the accussed were from lower  middle class background. So , the whole society , media , police raised voiced against them and the guilty were rightly prosecuted.
But take the recent case of  Supreme Court Judges accussed of sexual offences Mr. A . S. GANGULY , Mr. SWATHANTER  KUMAR  or  DGP SPS Rathore involved in Ruchika case  or  some some  Ministers , MLAs , MPs, the media , society , police &  Prosecuting judges are  biased towards the accussed. Because  the accussed  are  rich & mighty , belong to ruling elite class.

Are  not  the laws & it’s enforcements  fair , equitable , just and same for one & all ?
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 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 commit more crimes. that is exactly what is happening in india. the educated public must raise to the occasion & peacefully , democratically  must oppose this criminalization of judiciary , public service. then alone , we can build a RAM RAJYA OF MAHATMA GANDHI'S DREAM.

I  have  shown  in the following  attachment how  justice is bought , purchased , manipulated  in  INDIA  with  actual  cases.  Just  see the recent  examples  of  supreme  court  judges  involved  in  sexual  assault  case  &  ROOST  Resort  Mysore  Sex scandal involving  judges , if  any ordinary  fellow  had committed the same crimes  he would have been  hauled over the coal fire. Just take another  recent example of  Prisoner Movie actor sanjay dutt , TADA  provisions were diluted by the judge to favour him and now he is getting parole  week after week  while  the ordinary convicts never   get a single parole throught their sentence.  What  Brilliant  Judges , what  brilliant police  sirji.
 
Editorial : Hang  Rapist  Judges  to  Lamp  Posts  -  JUDGES & SEXUAL CRIMES


At the outset , we express our whole hearted respects to the honest few public servants
in public service including judiciary & Police. 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 , past cases of sexual assaults on women by judges (hushed up ?) , 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.
Consider the cases of sexual assault by JUDGES , POLICE on women . The JUDGES
have legal immunity with respect to their official duties, official actions but not their
individual actions amounting to CRIMES.
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 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.

Hereby , we request the honourable court to reopen all hushed up old cases of sexual assault involving judges  and to punish the guilty judges.

HANG   RAPIST  CORRUPT  JUDGES
https://sites.google.com/site/eclarionofdalit/hang-rapist-corrupt-judges 


Nothing but the truth
By Indira Jaising

A midst the rising din of the demand for death penalty for rapists comes the news that three judges of the Karnataka High Court have been involved in what has come to be described as a 'sex scandal' on the outskirts of Mysore at a place called Roost Resorts.
Our attention is now directed to those who dispense justice rather than those who knock at the doors of justice. In both cases, we are talking about the use and abuse of women — those who are victims of sexual abuse, and those who are used as sexual objects, willingly or unwillingly.
After the reports in local newspapers that three high court judges were found with women at a resort, there was the usual crop of denials. Although the Mysore police were called in to settle a brawl, on being told that the persons in question were judges they said that they heard no evil and saw no evil.
And everyone thought the matter ended there.
Attempts to get the names of the judges or of the women in question drew a blank. The bar association also drew a blank as most people said, "Don't quote me… but…"
On November 30, the Bangalore edition of The Times of India published a front-page story giving the names and photographs of the three judges and confirming that the Intelligence Bureau had done an investigation and come to the conclusion that the incident had indeed occurred. There were still no details of the incident, though it was stated that the report has been given to the chief justice of India.
There were reports on the same day that the Karnataka High Court chief justice had sought the transfer of the three judges to Patna, Jammu and Kashmir and Guwahati. Apparently, the chief justice has agreed to this request and the transfer orders have been issued.
Then came the news that the chief justice of India has set up a committee of inquiry under the 'in-house' procedure consisting of the chief justice of the Andhra Pradesh High Court, the chief justice of the Madras High Court and the chief justice of the Patna High Court.
There were still no details in the press about the actual incident and the entire episode continued to be referred to as a 'sex scandal'.
What is interesting about these reports is not what they reveal, but what they conceal. It is a conspiracy of silence. If the information is now available to the chief justice of India, why is it not being made public? Do we, the public, not have the right to information? Ironically, the morning newspapers brought the news that the Freedom of Information Act has been passed. What are the legitimate limits of the right to freedom of information and the requirement of keeping information a secret? This episode would make an interesting case study.
What exactly is at stake here? There is much that should concern the nation about the incident. This is not a case about the private morality of the judges, be that as it may, but about the abuse of office that they hold. What has not been made known is that the three women in question are women lawyers practising in their courts.
What is at stake here is the pollution of the stream of justice at its very source. There must be countless cases in which these women appeared before these very judges day in and day out of their routine practice. Can one honestly say that in such a situation justice is being done "without fear or favour"? Judges swear on oath of allegiance to "bear true faith" to the Constitution and do justice "without fear or favour". How well have these judges honoured this oath?
What is at stake here is the cynical use of women as sexual commodities. The usual justifications have already begun making the rounds. If the women have not complained, what objection can anyone else have, it is asked. What is lost sight of is the fact that the judges are in a position of dominance vis-à-vis the women, in a position to do favours that pertain to their office.
What is at stake here is the cynical use of public office, the seat of justice, for personal petty gain. It is irrelevant whether the women consented or not. The usual blame game will now begin — blaming the victim rather than the perpetrator; the usual loose talk about the character of the woman in question; the usual attempt to cover up by diverting attention from the actual incident to the motives of those who brought the incident to light.
What is at stake here is the perception of women as sexual commodities by those who are responsible for sitting in judgment over cases brought for and on behalf of women.
The issues at stake here concern one half of Indians. With what faith can Indian women approach the courts demanding the right to equality, the right to be free from sexual harassment or rape and the right to live with dignity, if the persecution of judges who sit in judgment over them is non-negotiable?
In the circumstances, the suggested solution is worse than the offence — to transfer them to Patna, Guwahati and Jammu and Kashmir. Why these particular cities? Are they not an integral part of the country, or are they mere islands within the country that are considered 'punishment postings' where people are sent a la 'crossing Kala Pani' of the old days? To the credit of the Guwahati Bar Association, it protested against the proposed transfer.
The only decent thing to do is for the chief justice of India to disclose full details of the incident so that rumour-mongering comes to an end. This would be in the best interest of the judiciary itself.
As things stand, the rumours are making the rounds that there were more than three judges involved, that the women were professional call girls, many of which are baseless. We, the people, have the right to know. The conspiracy of silence must be broken.
The judges in question must neither be assigned any judicial functions pending an inquiry nor be transferred to sit in judgment over others. Two of the judges are stated to be additional judges. They must not be confirmed. If there is prima facie evidence against the one remaining judge, the chief justice must recommend his impeachment.
It is time for all concerned bar associations, bar councils and other male-dominated bodies of legal professionals to act and ensure that there is no cover-up. There is little point in showing sympathy to women in judgments and in seminar rooms, or in recommending the death penalty for rape if we cannot deal with the men who dispense justice.
There are contempt of court petitions pending in the Karnataka High Court against some of the publications for disclosing details of the incident. Civil society and women's organisations must demand that justice is now done when it comes to the judges themselves.
The law of contempt can offer no solution to the crisis of credibility in the judiciary that this incident has thrown up. One positive aspect of the incident is that it is only after the chief justice of the high court issued a public notice inviting information that he received 20 representations, which led to the discovery of the truth.
Let the truth now be made public.

 

Judge accused of molesting 2 rape survivors in UP

A sitting judicial magistrate sexually assaulted them

UP: Two rape victims claim that a sitting judicial magistrate sexually assaulted them. The girls
alleged that when they went to the magistrate’s chamber to give their statement, he allegedly

judge threatened them to not speak of the incident to anyone.
Lawyers and the general public in Gonda launched a protest against the judge.
 

JUDGE SENDING OBSCENE SMS TO WOMEN

Lucknow Taking cognisance of the allegation against a civil Judge (junior division) of
Budaun court that he sent obscene SMSes to a woman lecturer, the Registrar General of
Allahabad High Court today sought a report from the district judge into the matter.
The civil judge of Gunnor sub-division court of Budaun — Pramod Kumar Gangwar— was
accused of sending obscene SMSes from his cellphone to a woman lecturer of Classic
College of Law, Bareilly. A lecturer of the same college, Vivek Gupta, was named in the FIR
lodged by the victim while Gangwar’s name surfaced in the primary investigation.
Registrar General Dinesh Gupta said, “The district judge of Budaun has been asked to
send a detailed report into the allegations. Appropriate action would be taken on the basis
of the report.”
District Judge Suresh Kumar Srivastava said, “I have asked the Bareilly district police to
send a report about the matter. The report on the basis of the police inquiry would be sent
to the Allahabad High Court Registrar General.”
“I am not aware about the matter, as the Bareilly police did not intimate me before initiating
the probe against the civil judge. They should have informed me when they had received
any such complaint,” the judge added.
Meanwhile, Bareilly CO II Raj Kumar, who is investigating the case, today recorded the
statement of the victim. “I have collected the call details of the cellphone used for sending
the SMSes, but I have yet to get the address of the person who is subscriber of the SIM
card,” he said.
“The probe is on to verify if the accused in the case were present on the location recorded
in the call details when the SMSes were sent. The details of the findings of the
investigation would be sent to the Budaun district court to seek the direction,” the CO
added.
Asked if the investigation was earlier conducted into the matter, Raj Kumar said, “The SP
(Crime) had initiated probe into the matter, but I am not aware if the investigation had
reached to any conclusion.”
The woman lecturer had lodged an FIR at the Mahila police station on Thursday alleging
she had received obscene SMSes on her cellphone involving her colleague Vivek Gupta.
The preliminary inquiry into the case by the police yesterday had found that the mobile
phone used in the crime belongs to the civil judge.

 
Lokayukta: DC demanded sex from widow


In the midst of a national outrage over former Haryana DGP SPS Rathore molesting a teenager,
the Karnataka Lokayukta on Saturday made a startling revelation that the state government was
shielding a top bureaucrat who had demanded sexual favours from a young widow.
Lokayukta Justice Santosh Hegde disclosed that the official concerned, who was the deputy
commissioner of one of the districts when he demanded sex from the widow in return for
discharging his duties as public servant, has since been promoted to a senior position.
Justice Hegde, in the course of an interaction with journalists at the Deccan Herald office
Saturday afternoon, said the unnamed widow had dared the deputy commissioner and
approached the Lokayukta’s office with a complaint against the officer.
On examination of the complaint, the Lokayukta had found sufficient grounds to recommend to
the state government the suspension and prosecution of the DC concerned. The
recommendation was subsequently considered by the concerned department head as well as
the chief secretary and both endorsed it.
But, according to Justice Hegde, no action was initiated against the DC as the same official who
had endorsed the recommendation subsequently found no basis for initiating departmental action
against him. Instead, the official cleared the DC’s name for promotion in the super-scale.
Presently, the official holds a senior position in the government.
The widow, in her late 20s, had approached the DC with a representation to sort out some
problems. But she was shocked when the DC demanded sex.
Justice Hegde did not identify the official in question or the complainant. Nor did he offer to name
the district where the official was serving as deputy commissioner. But the incident has
happened sometime in the course of last three years as Justice Hegde took over as the
Lokayukta in mid-2006.


3-year jail term for ‘dirty’ judge

Family court judge Ramrao Gangaram Bhise attempted to get sexual favours from a housewife in
1997
Family court judge Ramrao Gangaram Bhise’s attempts to extract sexual favours, in addition to a
bribe, from a housewife, Alka Gaikwad — who had sought an increase in her monthly
maintenance allowance from her estranged husband, in 1997 — proved costly to him.
Pronouncing him guilty on both counts, the special court hearing anti-corruption bureau (ACB)
matters sentenced him to three years rigorous imprisonment and a collective fine of Rs55, 000,
on Monday.
According to the FIR in the case registered against Bhise by the ACB, Suryakant Gaikwad had
filed for divorce from his wife, Alka, before the Bandra family court. Alka, a housewife, in turn,
filed a petition seeking mutual cohabitation with her husband. The then family court judge, Meera
Khadakkar, directed the husband to pay her an interim maintenance allowance of Rs750 per
month.
Subsequently, in January 1997, Alka filed another application before the same family court (now
presided over by Bhise) seeking to increase the monthly maintenance amount to Rs3,500. “On
October 27, 1997, Bhise issued an interim order, increasing the maintenance allowance to
Rs2,000 to be paid by Suryakan to his estranged wife till the disposal of the case. Immediately
after issuing the order, Bhise asked Alka to meet him and gave her his residential telephone
number, asking her to call him when the court hours ended. He told her that he would ask her
husband to pay her a lump sum of Rs2 lakh in addition to the monthly maintenance, provided she
called him up,” the FIR states.
When she called up the judge at 7 pm the same day, Bhise told her that she would have to pay
him a sum of Rs2,000 in addition to granting his sexual favours if she wanted an order in her
favour. He also directed her to meet him at the Haji Ali bus stop with the bribe amount the
following evening.
“Alka approached the ACB, which sought permission from the Chief Justice of the Bombay High
Court before laying a trap on the first class judicial magistrate (Bhise). The HC while granting the
permission designated a court official to bear witness to the events leading to the trap. Alka,
under video camera surveillance of ACB sleuths, along with the court official and other women
witnesses met Bhise at 8.30 pm at the Haji Ali bus stop. Bhise took hold of Alka’s wrist and when
she protested, repeated his demands,” the FIR states.
Alka was then taken to a nearby hotel, Sharda, where the judge accepted the bribe amount. But
before he could do anything else, ACB sleuths swooped in and arrested him.


Rajasthan judge is indicted for seeking sexual favours

Chief Justice of India G B Pattanaik retires tonight and he doesn’t have much to write home about
on the unprecedented drive he launched to enforce judicial accountability.
After the PPSC scam fiasco, reported in The Indian Express today, comes the case of the
Rajasthan judge who has been indicted in a sex scandal and yet has escaped action—pending
another inquiry.
On December 14, a three-judge committee set up by Pattanaik confirmed the ‘‘involvement’’ of
Justice Arun Madan of the Rajasthan High Court in a proposition to a woman doctor to have sex
with him in exchange for a judicial favour.
The committee, headed by the Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court Justice B K
Roy, submitted its report to Pattanaik, indicting Madan on a complaint made from Jodhpur by the
woman concerned, Sunita Malviya.
But Pattanaik has not announced any action against Madan. When contacted by The Indian
Express, Pattanaik confirmed that the committee had indicted Madan and his ‘‘bad reputation’’ in
seeking sexual favours in return for judicial ones.
However, Pattanaik said that no action was being taken since the committee had also mentioned
allegations of corruption against Madan. And so he had ordered a further inquiry by the same
committee into the corruption charges.
When asked what he did with the indictment of Madan in the sex scandal, Pattanaik said, ‘‘That
is on hold because I could not have taken piecemeal action against him….I am praying to God
that the final report will give some tangible material to take action.’’
Highly placed sources told The Indian Express that when the committee recorded statements last
week in Jodhpur of about 30 persons over four days, it also came to know of several allegations
of corruption against Madan and another judge of the same high court. The committee put these
on record as well.
Pattanaik said that when he summoned Madan to New Delhi last week, he did not raise the sex
scandal issue and instead limited himself to saying that he was ordering a further inquiry into
corruption allegations.
In effect, Pattanaik has now passed the Rajasthan buck to his successor Justice V N Khare.
The gist of Malviya’s complaint is that Madan made a sexual proposition to her in October
through a deputy registrar of the high court, Govind Kalwani, who said that the judge would help
her, in turn, get out of a criminal case booked against her.
With this, Pattanaik’s much-touted in-house judicial accountability seems to have hit a wall. The
first committee’s report into the PPSC scam exonerated one judge despite evidence and let two
others off with a mere slap on the wrist. The third committee is now busy probing the involvement
of judges in the Mysore sex scam.


Ten reasons why criminals in khaki get away
Siddharth Varadarajan

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.

Porbandar judge accused of dowry harassment

A complaint has been filed against District and Sessions judge of Porbandar for allegedly
harassing his daughter-in-law for dowry, police said here on Sunday.
Darshana Dave, a native of Amreli, has filed a complaint against her husband Kinnar, father-inlaw
and district judge Arvind Dave, mother-in-law Pratibha and brother-in-law Prashant, the
police added.
Darshana married Kinnar two years ago. Her complaint says that she was harassed from the
beginning, and was even beaten up by the husband and in-laws, who were demanding Rs 10
lakh as dowry.
She has also alleged that she was thrown out of the house a few months back, and her husband
is now seeking divorce, the police said.
Amreli Superintendent of Police H R Muliyana confirmed to have received the complaint against
the judge and others. He said that action will be taken after verifying the complaint.
This is the second complaint related to dowry harassment filed against a judge in the state in the
recent past.
Earlier, a woman had filed a complaint against additional sessions judge of Jetpur after her
daughter and the judge's wife committed suicide.


Gurgaon judge to also face dowry harassment charge

Gurgaon's Chief Judicial Magistrate Ravneet Garg, booked for the murder of his wife, will also
face dowry harassment charge, police here said Monday.
Police have issued notices to the CJM's father K.K. Garg and mother Rachna Garg, who have
also been named in the dowry harassment case.
The CJM's father reached here Monday morning from Haryana's Panchkula town and contacted
police, who wanted to question him.
"We had called CJM's parents...K.K. Garg was questioned by special investigation team (SIT),"
Gurgaon Police Commissioner Alok Mittal said.
Mittal said on the basis of written complaint filed by the parents of the CJM's wife Geetanjali,
penal sections of dowry harassment and extra-marital affair were included in the FIR lodged
against the CJM Saturday.
Geetanjali, 24, bore three bullet wounds - on her chin, chest and stomach - but no bullets were
found in her body that was recovered here Thursday. The CJM's licensed firearm was found near
the body, police said.
Mittal said two bullets were seized from the scene of crime and would be sent for ballistic
examination Monday, a day after ballistic experts examined the crime spot.
"The SIT Sunday questioned two women relatives of Ravneet Garg for hours at his government
allotted house here in the Officers Colony," said Mittal.
"We have asked CJM to produce supporting evidences to prove his statement," he said.
The CJM allegedly said that his driver and domestic help may throw some light on his wife's
death.
Judge Garg's in-laws alleged that two cars were provided to the accused on his and his family's
demand. Rs.2 lakh were also delivered to him at the time of the admission of his daughters in
school in May.
Geetanjali's brother Pradeep Aggarwal Saturday lodged a first information report against Garg
and his parents, accusing them of murder.
"Ravneet and Geetanjali got married in November 2007. Everything was fine for a few years but
the attitude of Ravneet and his parents towards Geetanjali started changing after she delivered
two baby girls (now aged around four and a half and three years)," Aggarwal said in his
complaint.
He demanded a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into his sister's murder.

sexual harassment: Intern moves SC for inquiry against Justice Swatanter Kumar


New Delhi: A former law intern, who has made sexual harassment allegations against Justice Swatanter Kumar, today moved the Supreme Court seeking inquiry against the retired judge.
A bench headed by Chief Justice P Sathasivam, before whom the matter was mentioned for urgent hearing, agreed to take up the case on January 15.
The intern, in the petition, challenged the apex court's December 5, 2013 full court resolution in which it was decided that no complaint against its retired judges will be entertained.

The petitioner also submitted that a proper forum be constituted to conduct inquiry in such cases and her complaint be also looked into by the apex court like it was done in the case of sexual harassment allegations against Justice (retd) A K Ganguly.
The intern has made Justice Kumar, Secretary General of the Supreme Court and Union of India parties in the case.
She submitted that Justice Kumar was a sitting judge at the time of the alleged incident and the apex court must look into the complaint as per Vishaka guidelines.
Justice Kumar, who is currently heading the National Green Tribunal, has described the allegations as "incredulous and false" and "some kind of conspiracy".




IB confirms Mysore Roost  Resort sex scandal

The Intelligence Bureau has provided the Centre with a detailed account of the escapade
involving three Karnataka High Court judges on November 3 in a resort on the outskirts of
Mysore, highly placed sources told The Times of India on Friday.
According to a senior official, “Most of the information sought has not only confirmed the veracity
of the incident but the government has crosschecked it with another police agency. Both the
reports match.”
The incident was widely reported in the media. What has surprised the Centre is the “dogged
refusal” of the Karnataka police to confirm the incident. “Mysore Police Commissioner C.
Chandrasekhar first denied that the incident ever took place. Only when a public notice was
issued through the high court registrar seeking information on the Mysore scandal, did the facts
come out in the open. Public protest helped a lot,” says the source.
What transpired at the resort, says the source, “cannot be expected from anyone in civil society,
leave alone persons sworn to upholding the law”. According to him, “The IB report consists of
unmentionable facts and also makes it amply clear that the Mysore incident is not the first time
such things have happened. Can anyone expect upholders of the law to pick a fight with people
who complained to the police when caught in a compromising position?”
In a related development, Karnataka High Court Chief Justice N.K. Jain has written to Chief
Justice of India Justice G.B. Pattanaik asking that three judges be transferred. Jain has proposed
that Justice N.S. Veerabhadraiah be transferred to the Patna High Court, Justice
Chandrasekharaiah to Jammu & Kashmir and Justice V. Gopala Gowda to the Gauhati High
Court.
While Jain is understood not to have given any reasons, highly placed sources say the proposal
for transfers is linked to the Mysore incident.
However, the source says that now the government is worried about the appropriate “remedial
measures”. In such cases, transferring a judge to a remote high court doesn’t always work. He
says, “Bar associations and the people of northeastern states were up in arms when some
judges of the Punjab and Haryana high courts were transferred there. We expect similar protests
if the CJI accepts Justice Jain’s proposal to transfer the three judges of the Karnataka High
Court.”
The Bar Council of India on Friday, while expressing its anguish at the Karnataka incident, called
for “follow-up action”.
“Unless prompt and appropriate action is taken, it will erode the faith of public in the only
institution considered to be the bastion of our fighting faith in democracy,” it said in a statement.
The BCI has “lamented” inaction in this case by “the higher judiciary and the government”.

Panel names former India Supreme Court judge Ganguly in sex harassment allegation

Shocked, shattered by allegations: former Supreme Court judge Ganguly
New Delhi: A three-member panel that probed the charge of sexual harassment of a young lawyer by a Supreme Court judge has submitted its report, identifying the judge as A K Ganguly, court sources said on Friday.
The report was submitted on Thursday after the committee of three judges met six times. This is the first time an alleged perpetrator has been named.
The report, submitted to Chief Justice P Sathasivam, also carries the statements of the victim, who interned in the Supreme Court, and that of the now-retired Justice Ganguly, the sources said.
The graduate of Kolkata-based National University of Judicial Sciences (NUJS) had alleged sexual harassment by Ganguly while interning for him in December 2012.
The committee, which held six sittings on November 13, 19, 21, 26, and 27, submitted its report to Chief Justice Sathasivam on November 28.
The victim appeared before the committee on November 19 and was expected to appear again on November 21 but chose to stay away.
She first mentioned the incident in a blog for Journal of Indian Law and Society on November 6 and later told the same in an interview with Legally India website.
The victim, who is working with Natural Justice: Lawyers for Communities and Environment, said she heard that there were three other girls besides her who were sexually harassed by the same judge.
She also claimed to have knowledge of four more girls who were allegedly harassed by other judges in their chambers.
Denying any sexual harassment, Ganguly on Friday said he was “shocked and shattered” by the charges against him.
“I am denying everything. I have told the committee that all the allegations levelled by the intern are wrong. I don’t know how such allegations have been levelled against me,” he said.
“I am a victim of situations,” he told television channels.
“I am not ashamed of anything,” he said in reply to a question regarding the alleged episode which came out in public after the victim spoke about it in the legal portal earlier this month.
He said the charges against him were totally wrong. The girl had not raised any sexual harassment issue with him, he said, adding that he had not done any physical harm to her.
The former judge said the intern worked with him though she was not officially allocated to him. She came in the place of another intern who had gone abroad after marriage. “I never put up a poster. She came on her own.”
He said the girl had come to his house on a number of occasions in connection with work.



Ruchika Girhotra case: Family gives up fight against ex-Haryana DGP

Ajay Sura, TNN | Jun 2, 2012, 04.09PM IST

CHANDIGARH: The family of Ruchika Girhotra, a minor girl who allegedly committed suicide after molestation by former Haryana director general of police (DGP) SPS Rathore, has given up its fight for justice in the court of law after 22 years.

The special CBI court Panchkula on Friday accepted the closure report submitted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in two cases - attempt to murder and forgery of documents- filed against former Haryana DGP SPS Rathore.

Ruchika's father Subhash and brother Ashu raised no objection to the closure report.


Admitting that he was not in a position to pursue the matter further, Subhash said, "I do not see any hope now. We feel cheated. My family is vulnerable. The circumstances have pushed us back by 20 years."

"When Rathore was convicted in 2009, I met union home minister P C Chidambaram who assured me of justice. I thought time and system had changed and dared to move fresh complaints against Rathore." On January 12, 2010 the CBI registered three fresh FIRs against Rathore - attempt to murder, abetment to suicide and doctoring of documents. However, in November 2010, the CBI submitted the closure report in two cases. The closure report was accepted by the court on Friday.

"But now after finding that the system cannot be changed, we decided not to pursue it further," Girhotra said.

Ruchika's disillusioned father said that he had presented a lot of material and some witnesses related to the fresh cases before the agency. "But the agency was adamant on closing the case."

Subhash forced his son and family into exile after Ruchika's death, fearing further harassment at the hands of the former DGP. During this period, the family shifted between several cities and returned to Panchkula many years later only to lead an inconspicuous life.

The third case against Rathore- abetment to suicide - is still pending. The CBI could not file any report as the Punjab and Haryana high court has ordered status quo on it. Besides Rathore, former Ambala SP KP Singh, sub-inspector Prem Dutt and assistant sub-inspectors Jai Narayan and Sewa Singh were also named in the FIR.

In its closure report, the CBI has said that the allegations levelled by Subhash Girhotra and his son Ashu against Rathore were unfounded. The CBI also claimed that the allegations could not be substantiated "as per the documentary evidence and oral testimony of witnesses."

Fighting Sexual Violence In A Country Whose Police Doesn’t Respond To Distress Calls
By Samar

The calls were not getting answered, not a single one of them. The friend was recounting the tale of a female friend held hostage by some people in her own house with horror. I was calling the Senior Superintendent of Police and other officers, district administration, the local police station. Every passing minute was sending shivers down my spine, he continued.
Worst was the response of the police station where full rings went with nobody answering them. What for these police stations are if they cannot respond to such emergencies? The story, in short, was eerily similar to countless other stories of bodies of women being turned into the site of ‘honour’ and battles for the same. The younger brother of the woman in this case had married a girl out of love and then the couple eloped for safety. The case did not involve any caste conflicts, ironically, as both of them belonged to the same caste. It was the girl’s decision to choose her life partner on her own that had irked the family members, self-designated custodians of the girl in any patriarchal society. It was this they wanted to avenge and had, therefore, landed on the woman’s house in the dead of the night and held her hostage.
They had also confiscated her phones for stopping her from seeking any help. She was asked to tell where the couple was and threatened with rape and getting paraded naked if she did not. She, in fact, did not know. Yet, she asked for her phone on the excuse that a friend might know the couple’s location and she will ask her. That is how the friend I was talking to came to know about the incident. She, in turn, tried to contact every possible person who could help starting with the local police.
As I said before, the police did not answer the calls even once leaving her flummoxed. Then she started contacting her friends in media and women’s movement who could, finally, reach the police and make them act. The hostage situation was broken next morning after hours long ordeal for the woman. . Thankfully, she was rescued before getting violated despite being kept in illegal confinement. That too, it broke because the woman was well connected and her friend could reach people in positions of helping What would happen to an ordinary woman with no such contacts is anybody’s guess.
This happened in a country which saw a national outpouring of anger against violence against women after brutal gang rape and subsequent death of a young girl in Delhi last December. The popular protests had shaken the government of the day into action and it came up with new laws against rape and promised heightened security for women across India. That the changes were cosmetic gets betrayed by stories after stories of violence against women being committed in the country. Uttar Pradesh, most populous province of the country has been in news for spate of gang rapes and murders. Madhya Pradesh which has not been in news despite performing worse is officially acknowledged rape capital of the country. Even places which were considered safer for women in the past have seen a rise in incidents of sexual violence. Mumbai, for instance, witnessed a passenger attacking a female bus conductor and tearing her clothes in broad daylight.
The new law, evidently, has not worked on the ground. It will not for laws, however good, need institutions to work and if institution are defunct and/or deviant they are bound to fail. What law can save a woman if the police would not do as much as taking a distress call? What law would save someone from getting raped if she is held hostage for hours in her own house? What law would save a girl wanting to marry out of her own choice if the police cannot offer as much as protection to her? The country has seen cases of Khap Panchayats (caste councils) killing couple having police protection and then threatening the judge who sentenced those responsible. Interestingly, the local police did not beef up the security cover for the judge despite her repeated pleas as they were hand in gloves with the murderers.
Introducing newer, harsher laws is not going to curb sexual violence in India. Only thing that can is radical restructuring of the criminal justice system by making it responsive and responsible. Having dedicated teams to respond to emergencies might be a beginning but until and unless impartial investigations ending in speedy convictions become the norm, nothing will change on the ground.
Till then, we can make do police stations which do not respond to distress calls.


Rethinking Rule Of Law In The Times Of Rape Bid On A Judge
By Samar

An attempt to rape a judge, that too in Judges’ Compound in Aligarh which remains under twenty four hour vigil of the Provincial Armed Constabulary speaks volumes about the status of law and order in Uttar Pradesh, the most populous state of India. Who will be safe on the streets when even a judge is not spared by the rapists? No one, in fact is, as evidenced by the recent spate of incidents of sexual violence against women from marginalised and dispossessed backgrounds. The gruesome gang rape and murder of two minors in Badaun, the most ghastly of them, has caused a national outrage just a few days before this incident. The brazen attack on the mother of a rape survivor in order to force her to withdraw the complaint against the accused, currently in jail, in nearby Etah was another glaring example of total collapse of rule of law in Uttar Pradesh.
Sadly, the state has never been known for maintaining even law and order, forget enforcing rule of law. It has rather had the dubious distinction of being the proverbial Bad Lands, the countryside run by might and not by rulebooks. With both political and bureaucratic leadership oscillating between the denial to dodging mode, the recent cases of sexual assaults have merely reinforced the image. Think of a Chief Minister saying that rapes were common and a Google search would return many “Badaun like incidents’. Think of his father, a former chief minister and current parliamentarian, terming rape as minor mistake. The Director General of Police of the state, however, took the crown by justifying the incidents of rape as ‘normal’ in a state of the size and population of Uttar Pradesh.
There were others, largely in the secular liberal intelligentsia of the country, who saw a political conspiracy hatched by the Hindu right behind defaming the state. They came up, rightly, with the data from the National Crime Records Bureau that shows Madhya Pradesh as the rape capital of India and raised questions over the undue scrutiny of Uttar Pradesh. The intelligentsia, unfortunately, seems to have got it wrong once again, first time being its silence on the cases where victims came from dispossessed and marginalised communities. The lack of outrage over sexual violence against women from Dalit, tribal, minorities and other such communities until the cases are really gory, as Badaun was, has led to a section of people losing faith in them, it would do better not to lose all.
The question, however, is if the failure of a state in providing security to its women can be used as an excuse to defend the total collapse of rule of law in another? Should not a single case of rape be horrifying enough for the state to wake up and fix the system? Can a state really take refuge in competitive statistics and shirk from its responsibility of maintaining law and order, at least? This is exactly where that the government of Uttar Pradesh has failed and failed absolutely. That’s not bizarre if one sees the number of criminals in it right from its ranks and files to the ministry. After all, the state has a dubious distinction of seeking the withdrawal of rape charges against a minister in ‘public interest’.
It is in this context that the rape attempt on a sitting judge must be seen as a wakeup call for both the citizenry and the state. No people can live in perpetual fear of violence against women and state's inaction will merely increase both vigilantism and control of the mobility of women in the name of safety, a dangerous thing for a democracy. Parrying away the questions over the state of governance in Uttar Pradesh is not going to serve any purpose, only bringing the criminals to justice will. The state government must ensure speedy and impartial justice to the victims and their families to restore their faith in the system.
