I ,NAGARAJA.M.R. hereby do declare that information given above are true to the best of my knowledge & belief. If
i am repeatedly called to police station or else where for the sake of investigations , the losses i do incurr as a result
like loss of wages , transportation , job , etc must be borne by the government. prevoiusly the police / IB personnel

repeatedly called me the complainant (sufferer of injustices) to police station for questioning , but never called the
guilty culprits , rich crooks , criminals even once to police station for questioning , as the culprits are high & mighty .
this type of one sided questioning must not be done by police or investigating agencies . if anything untoward
happens to me or to my family members like loss of job , meeting with hit & run accidents , loss of lives , death due
to improper medical care , etc , the jurisdictional police together with above mentioned accussed public servants will
be responsible for it. Even if criminal nexus levels fake charges , police file fake cases against me or my
dependents to silence me , this complaint is & will be effective.
If I or my family members or my dependents are denied our fundamental rights , human rights , denied proper
medical care for ourselves , If anything untoward happens to me or to my dependents or to my family members - In
such case Chief Justice of India together with the jurisdictional revenue & police officials will be responsible for it , in
such case the government of india is liable to pay Rs. TWO crore as compensation to survivors of my family. if my
whole family is eliminated by the criminal nexus ,then that compensation money must be donated to Indian Army
Welfare Fund. Afterwards , the money must be recovered by GOI as land arrears from the salary , pension ,
property , etc of guilty police officials , Judges , public servants & Constitutional fuctionaries.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :

1. Facts of the case:


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

citizens , commonmen & see howcareless our judges are towards anti national crimes , crimes worth crores of rupees. That the
present petitioner has not filed any other petition (which are admitted by courts) in any High Court or the Supreme Court of India
on the subject matter of the present petition.
PRAYER:
In the above premises, it is prayed that this Hon'ble Court may be pleased:

EDITORIAL : WAKE UP Corrupt Judges & Police of India - Bapuji's dandi march- the origin of civil dis-obedience
movement

Greetings on the birthday of our bapuji , Mahatma Gandhi on 02nd October. Just hanging photograph of Gandhi in office room , court hall or police
station wont serve any purpose. Before gandhis photo only many corrupt practices , injustices are enacted by public servants. Many of our public
servants , Judges & Police are even unfit to sit before Mahatma Gandhis photograph , let alone invoke mahatmas name during speech or court
ruling. Let those very Judges & Police first learn to follow ideals of Mahatma Gandhi in their official capacity as well as personal capacity. The public
servants enjoy luxuries , 5 star non veg meals , alcoholic drinks all at tax payers expense. These judges give judgements running into hundreds of
pages with moral guidance , great quotes to commoners , police use filthy language , 3rd degree torture methods against innocents , commoners , when
there are rich crooks , criminals justice kowtows before their feet. No brilliance , quotes of judges , no bravery , valour of police , why ?
We respect the honest few in judiciary , police & public service , who inspite of repeated transfers , withholding of promotions , threats to
their own lives are doing their duties & upholding constitution of india. WE SALUTE THOSE HONEST FEW IN JUDICIARY , POLICE & PUBLIC
SERVICE. Here the term JUDGE includes all public servants doing quasi judicial functions upto chief justice of india.

Why no suo motto action taken by police or judges when injustices are happening before public eyes before their very own eyes ? why no action
taken by judges & police even when injustices are reported to them ? Some of the public servants mention agricultural income as their source of wealth.
Year after year original farmers are dying , committing suicide all over india due to crop failure , fall in prices of agricultural products , etc. How come
these public servants are making money by agriculture , with what crops & selling in which markets ? the government must not send progressive farmers ,
legislators abroad for study tour , to learn farm techniques instead they can send them to the farms of corrupt judges , police & public servants.

Inspite of our repeated appeals for justice , judges are mum.


1.

Are judges not interested in apprehending criminals & recovering crores of public money ?

2.

Are judges not interested in apprehending master minds behind Late prime minister Rajiv Gandhi assassination ?

3.

Are judges not interested in prosecuting greedy , corrupt industrialists ?

4.

Are judges not interested in apprehending greedy , corrupt industrialist of RPG enterprises ?

5.

Are judges not interested to apprehend criminals within RBI & BRBNMPL ?

6.

Are judges not interested to do their duties to protect fundamental , human rights of commoners ?

7.

Are judges not interested to do their duties , to legally prosecute their corrupt colleagues ?

8.

If not , why those judges & police are not quitting their jobs , pave the way for a honest person ?

It is on this day in 12/03/1930, mahatma gandhi led people to dandi in gujarath state,india , to peacefully protest against the
atrocious, illegal tax levied by the occupiers-britishers on natural salt. This non-violent, civil dis-obedience movement soon
became a mass movement throught india & shook the very foundations of the colonial british government . it is an important
milestone in our freedom struggle.

Today, in india even after 1947's independence commoner's are yet to relish the fruits of independance. Criminals have occupied
the seats of power , in their greed for power & money are violating the fundamental/human rights of commoners. The saving
grace is that still a few honest people are here & there in seats of power. We the commoners must come together & support those
honest people in their endeavours. towards , this objective on this holy day SOS e Voice for Justice on web was born.

Let us build ram rajya of mahatma's dream through non violent means within the existing democratic framework .that ram rajya is
aptly described by poet shri. Ravindranath tagore as,

Where the mind is without fear & the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches it's arms towards
perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost it's way

Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit


Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom , my father
Let my country awake.

Jai hind. Vande mataram.

Yours sincerely,
Nagaraja.M.R.

Crusaders against Corruption: List of Whistleblowers in India


India is the largest democracy in the world and some of the biggest organizations in the world are managed by
the Indian government. After independence, India inherited a lot of functionality and laws from British. Over a
period of time these laws and procedures seemed to be ineffective in handling big public departments. From time to
time people have raised their voice against the corrupt activities in governmental offices and contracts. In India,
laws are often misused to provide advantage to a group of people. Whistle Blower is a person who exposes any
kind of information or activity that is deemed illegal, dishonest, or not correct within an organization. Here we are
presenting some whistle blowers who fought against illegal and corrupt system and suffered heavily.

1: Satyendra Dubey (19732003):- He was an Indian Engineering


Service (IES) officer posted as Project Director in the National Highways Authority of India (N.H.A.I) at Koderma.
Indian Government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee had started ambitious Golden Quadrilateral project to
connect all major cities of India via four and six lane highways. At this time he was responsible for the expansion
of Aurangabad-Barachatti section of National Highway 2. He discovered that Larsen and Toubro had taken
contract from Indian government and passed it to smaller contract mafias who were incapable of handling such a
large scale project. Apart from this, he noticed that proper procedure and quality was not maintained while
constructing the roads. He wrote to his senior officials in N.H.A.I and when he didnt get proper response he wrote
directly to Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. He requested that his identity to be kept secret but the letter along
with his bio-data was forwarded to Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. While returning from a wedding in
Varanasi he was murdered in Gaya, Bihar on 27 November 2003.

2: Shanmugam Manjunath (1978 2005):- He was a manager at


Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) posted Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh. Manjunath was murdered for sealing a
corrupt petrol station which was selling adulterated fuel. He had sealed two petrol pumps in Lakhimpur Kheri for
three months and when they started operating again he took a surprise raid to check the quality of fuel. He was shot
six times and his dead body was found in the back seat of his car. This news created huge outcry in nation and
media. Sessions court found all accused guilty and sentenced them to death. Allahabad high court changed the
verdict to life imprisonment of 5 while acquitting the other two. Indian Oil Corporation paid a compensation of 2.6
million INR to Manjunaths Family.

3: Narendra Kumar (19792012): Narendra Kumar was an Indian


Police Service (I.P.S) officer from 2009 batch and he was posted in Morena district of Indian state of Madhya
Pradesh. Morena district is famous for fine quality of sand found in Chambal River bed which is used in
construction of buildings, and in past years illegal mining is rampant in not only Morena District but in many parts
of Madhya Pradesh. Narendra Kumar was posted as sub-divisional police officer in Morena district and he had been
trying to stop illegal quarrying in the area. On 8 march he received information about illegally mined stones being
th

carried in a tractor. He went to check if the information was true or not. He reached the spot and asked the driver to
stop but the tractor driver ignored his warning and ran vehicle over him.

4: Lalit Mehta (19722008): Lalit Mehta was a Right to Information (R.T.I)


activist who had exposed ongoing scams in National Rural Employment Guarantee Act in Palamau District of
Jharkhand. Lalit Mehta was an engineer turned social activist. He was actively involved in activities that sought to
advance rural employment, basic health facilities, right to food, and child rights. At the time he was working as full-

time activist of the Right to Food Campaign. He was also the secretary of the Vikas Sahyog Kendra (VSK), a nongovernmental organization based in Palamau. On the evening of 14 May 2008 he was travelling back to Chatarpur
th

on his motor bike when he was attacked and killed. The Chhatarpur Police found his mutilated body and a belt
around his neck Kandaghati in Chhatarpur on May 15. He was strangled and his face was smashed to deformed
beyond recognition. It was suspected that he was murdered by people who siphoned off NREGS funds. National
RTI Forum started Lalit Mehta RTI Gallantry Award, honoring his contribution in exposing scams via R.T.I.

5: SP Mahantesh: He was serving as a Deputy Director of Cooperative


Audit in Karnataka. Throug his investigation he found that there were several irregularities in land acquisition,
layout formation and allotment of sites and it involved many officials and politicians. He had prepared an audit
report of the BEML Employees Cooperative Society, which was accused of making improper land allotments to
several influential persons. He was attacked thrice prior to final assault that claimed his life on 15 may 2012.On the
th

evening of 15th may he was driving home in his Maruti 800 when he was stopped by four assailants. Attackers first
dragged him out and beat him with iron rods and punches. When he went unconscious, his body was thrown on
sharp stones. This whole accident happened at high security zone where chief justice of Karnataka lives but
according to police out of 16 CCTV cameras none was able to record footage as it was raining heavily that day. The
48-year-old died five days later due to a cardiac arrest.

6: Amit Jethwa (1975 2010): He was an Indian environmentalist


and social worker and he worked actively in the Gir Forest area near Junagadh, Gujarat. During his work as a social
worker he found that illegal mining was carried out in protected areas and he charged Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)
Member of Parliament, Dinu Solanki as main culprit. He was working as the president of the Gir Nature Youth Club
and he was the one who highlighted the use of a Chinkara deer in a scene in the movie Lagaan and opposed a Bhuj
court decision which put a stay on inquiry against the actor-director Aamir Khan. Not only this but he was also
instrumental in the five-year jail term of Bollywood actor Salman Khan for shooting an endangered Chinkara deer.
On 20 July, soon after he filed a case against BJP MP, he had gone to meet his lawyer near the Gujarat High court
th

in Ahmedabad. As he was leaving the complex, two assailants on a motorcycle shot him at close range with a
country-made pistol. He fought bravely with the assailants but they were able to escape. In the initial days of

enquiry Gujrat police gave clean chit to Dinu Solanki but this was severely criticized. Later the case was transferred
to CBI and in November 2013 Dinu Solanki was arrested by CBI.

7: Satish Shetty (1970 2010): Satish was an Indian social activist


and he was noted for exposing many land scams in Indian state of Maharashtra. He had used the Right to
Information Act to expose irregularities in Government offices and construction work carried out in Maharashtra.
Shetty was a systematic whistleblower and he was credited with throwing light on several major land scams in the
TalegaonLonavala regions a famous region in Maharashtra for Real- Estate developers and retailors. He also
exposed the corruption in the construction of countrys first expressway the MumbaiPune expressway. In the
morning of 13 January he was attacked by three to four masked men with butchers knives when he was reading a
th

newspaper at a kiosk at around 7 on his way home from a morning walk. The police investigations proposed a
different theory for the murder, and eventually the case was transferred to CBI.

8: Rinku Singh Rahi: He was Provincial Civil services (PCS) civil servant
and he was fighting against corruption in sponsored welfare schemes in Uttar Pradesh (UP). He was born in Aligarh
and completed his B.Tech degree in Metallurgy at NIT, Jamshedpur in 2002. In the same year, he scored All India
17th rank in GATE but he opted for a civil services career instead. Rahi ordered an inquiry into the allocation of
funds by social welfare department in Muzaffarnagar over the last five years and he found discrepancies. Out of the
allocated funds to be distributed as part of Old-age pension scheme, money was taken for 62,447 people but only
47,707 beneficiaries received it. There were no records for 55 million rupees distributed to 22,000 OBC students
and 110 million rupees distributed to all BPL families. He also went on hunger strike to draw attention of Akhilesh
Yadav governments reply on his pending RTI applications. He was shot six times by local gangsters, damaging his
jaw and the vision of one eye and he is currently working as a coordinator at Bhimrao Ambedkar coaching center in
his hometown.

9: Yashwant Sonawane: He was posted as Additional District Collector of


Malegaon (Maharashtra). He had received information about oil adulteration carried out at large scale in Malegaon.
While going to Nandgaon he spotted a few trucks parked in a very suspicious manner near the road side. Trucks of
big oil companies like IOC, HPCL and BPCL were parked. When he started investigating about the trucks a man

named Popat Shinde, along with his men attacked the officer, beat him up and then set him on fire. He was declared
dead on arrival at the hospital.

10: D. K Ravi (1979 2015): Doddakoppalu Kariyappa Ravi commonly


known as D. K. Ravi was an Indian Administrative Service officer of Karnataka cadre from the 2009 batch. He was
posted as Deputy Commissioner in Kolar district and was known as pro people administrator and started
crackdown of illegal sand mining and encroachment of government lands in Kolar and Gulbarga. Later on he was
transferred to Bangalore as Additional Commissioner of Commercial Taxes and there he prepared a list of many tax
defaulters and set a target of 1000 crores to collect from tax evading defaulters. During first two weeks of his
working he collected 138 crore INR from tax defaulters and came into lime light of many political goons. He
received many threat calls from tax defaulters and sand mafia. On 16 march 2015 he was found dead with his body
th

hanging on celling fan in his residence in Koramangala, Bangalore. The initial police investigation, forensic and
medical evidence showed it a case of suicide but then protest erupted in cities where he worked and mass band was
organized by opposition parties for handing over the inquiry to Central Bureau of Investigation (C.B.I). On 13 April
2015 the Centre ordered a CBI probe into the mysterious death of IAS officer DK Ravi and the case is still going on.
The list compiled by us is only a fraction of whistle blowers working in India. In recent times Whistle blowers have
used Right to Information as their prime tool to gather information about various government schemes, their
expenditure and corruption going in them. In the past five years, some 150 whistleblowers have allegedly been
harassed or jailed for exposing corruption; while as many as 20 have been killed.
