Why pardon just Sanjay Dutt: Daughter of another convict

 

 

Mumbai: As film stars and politicians join the chorus for actor Sanjay Dutt’s pardon, daughter of Zaibunisa Kazi, who is facing similar charges as the actor, questions why her mother should not also get the same support?

Daughter of 1993 Mumbai blasts convict, Zaibunisa said, “I wish I was a celebrity or my mother was a celebrity or a sister of an MP. Even my mother would have got the kind of support Sanjay Dutt is getting. If it is on humanitarian grounds then why only Sanjay Dutt, why not Zaibunisa. Isn’t she a human? Isn’t she a citizen of this country?

The daughter of 70-year-old reacting to the clamour over pardon for Dutt after the debate was ignited by a comment by retired Justice Markandey Katju and which was followed by the political class seconding his opinion.

Zaibunisa’s 40 year-old daughter, who didn’t marry so that she can fight her mother’s battle, is hopeful that a review potion will reduce the sentence.

Both Dutt and Zaibunisa Kazi were charged for possessing illegal arms and ammunition and also under the stringent TADA Act. While Zaibunisa got convicted under TADA, Sanjay Dutt not only got an acquital under TADA but despite substantial evidence the CBI did not challenge his acquittal in the Supreme Court.

Zaibunisa’s lawyer Sushil Kumar said, “She was not found in possession of any weapons, no recovery was made from her, she did not give any confession. It was only on the basis of a confession of a co-accused that she was convicted, it is unfortunate.”

Zaibunisa daughter added, “It is not easy living with five daughters, being a single woman and going through this. It is not easy and 20 years is a very long time.” While for the judicial system, 1993 Mumbai Blasts case is a closed chapter, for many the ordeal isn’t over yet.

 

Not Sanjay Dutt, real issue is to probe Bollywood-dons links

 

While the TRP-hungry media and elitist audience are busy shedding tears for Sanjay Dutt after the Supreme Court sent him to jail for illegally possessing deadly weapons, but is anybody feeling concerned about how the links with the underworld has seriously affected our favourite Bollywood? Instead of focusing on the humanitarian-non-humanitarian debate, isn’t it more prudent if we raise a voice to back the Indian legal system in cleaning up the tinsel town from the grey shadow of the evil underworld which threatens the national security today?

 

Bollywood is not only a dream which attracts young talents but also an opportunity for the mafia to make make money by alluring unsuspecting filmmakers into a whirlpool from where there is no easy escape. Those who dare to defy the mafia pays for it dearly. The link between the two world rocked the popular imagination after the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts when the names of Dutt and film producers lika Samir Hingora and Hanif Kadawala came to the fore, it was in the 1970s and 1980s when the nexus had surfaced although not as alarmingly. The kidnapping of the producer of a hit Amitabh Bachchan-starrer of the early 1980s was a big blow to the film industry in those times. Bollywood-underworld connection was symbiotic in the initial years… In the initial years, the link between the two world was more symbiotic. The underworld dons were easy sources of finance while the film industry lent the glamour factor to add spark to occasions organised by the dons and their aides. The latter also dictated film plots and promoted the actors of their choice but the change in financial fortunes as a result of the slump in the market started bringing the dons closer to the film industry with desperate interests. Investing in good films became a priority for the cash-strapped underworld men and once they made an entry into the industry, non-monetary interests also gained prominence. As a result, successful filmmakers and actors started to fall prey to the underworld’s evil designs. The intimacy of Mandakini or Heena Kausar with underworld dons or presence of filmstars and dons in cricket stadium were once matters of gossip and attraction for the common Indian but soon the consequence of the nexus spilled over into the real life when 267 people were killed in devastating serial blasts in Mumbai in 1993. …but it turned violent gradually The nexus turned more and more blood-stained with the gruesome killing of popular filmmaker Gulshan Kumar in broad daylight in August 1997 for defying Abu Salem’s monetary demands. Producer Mukesh Duggal was also killed that year. Attacks were also attempted on producer Rajiv Rai and senior filmmaker Subhash Ghai over overseas rights of films, a few days before Kumar’s murder. Three years later, actor-turned-director Rakesh Roshan had a close shave after he was shot at in Mumbai after he turned down demands to share profits accrued from the overseas sale of Hindi blockbuster Kaho Na… Pyaar Hain. These, among many other similar incidents, rewrote a new chapter in the underworld-Bollywood link story and this fresh chapter said that the Bollywood wasn’t relieved anymore. The individual enmity between dons and filmmakers is a concern but the much bigger concern is when the underworld is being used to threaten the country’s national security. Today, people like Dawood Ibrahim are not just dons looking to make money but also instruments in the hand of Pakistan to carry out massive destruction in our country. Are there more links between Bollywood and underworld? We need to find out By adding elements of drama to Sanjay Dutt’s punishment, we are actually trivialising the bigger threat that the underworld can pose to India’s integrity through the soft target called Bollywood. Just ensuring protection to one or two actor or debating whether Dutt should be exonerated are not the needs of the hour. The actual task is to look for more links between the glamour world and the underworld which have the potential to harm our cause. The film and TV business have undergone a sea change in the last 20 years and the underworld hasn’t surely not sat back all these days. The professionals attached to the film and TV industries are more vulnerable to be manipulated today because of factors like globalisation and liberalisation and it makes it equally challenging for the Indian state to tighten the national security. Are we upto the mark to stop the emergence of more Sanjay Dutts? Film professionals need to be more alert Delinking the Bollywood and the underworld might not be completely possible for this matter involves human relations. But while the protectors of the nation need to continuously monitor these relations, it is also a big responsibility for the film professionals to ensure that they do not let themselves and the country down by falling into the trap laid by the underworld. Sanjay Dutt might have been an immature youth who made a mistake by taking possession of an arm but the youngsters of this age should learn from Dutt’s mistake by heart. Filmstars are the nation’s role models and they can not afford to indulge in any kind of activity, even unsuspectingly, that might lead to a major harm to their followers. It is thus not a time to cry for Sanjay Dutt’s punishment. If he has perished because of his own error, let him but by displaying a soft corner for his stardom and seek his pardon, we will send across dangerous signals. An entire nation can not be put in peril just for one individual.

Fresh charges pressed against Salman Khan

 

Bollywood actor Salman Khan will appear before a Sessions Court on March 25, Monday, in the 2002 hit-and-run case.

The case came up before the Sessions Court after a magistrate transferred the matter to that court by charging the actor with a more serious charge of ‘culpable homicide not amounting to murder’.

One person was killed and four injured when a Land Cruiser, allegedly driven by Salman, ran over people sleeping on pavement in Bandra in the wee hours of September 28, 2002.

Meanwhile, a Jodhpur court read out fresh charges against Salman, Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre for hunting blackbucks, a protected species, in Rajasthan 14 years ago. Salman was charged under the Wildlife Protection Act. Charges against him under the Arms Act have been dropped. If convicted, the actors face up to six years in jail.

 

Black  Buck  Murder &  Hit Run Case  of Salman Khan

 

Bollywood films are known to promote the theory of good prevailing over evil. Now, it is the turn of “real” to imitate the “reel”. After actor Sanjay Dutt, it the turn of Salman Khan to prepare himself to face the law for “crimes” committed by him. The Supreme Court on Thursday, March 21 upheld actor Dutt’s conviction under the Arms Act, but reduced his sentence from six to five years in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case.

On Saturday, March 23 a Jodhpur court framed fresh charges against four of the accused and Salman’s film industry colleagues in the 14-year-old-long Blackbuck poaching case. The court of chief judicial magistrate, Jodhpur, Saturday read out charges against four Bollywood stars — Tabu, Sonali Bendre, Neelam and Saif Ali Khan. However, the court stopped itself from reading the charges against Salman, the main accused of the case, as he was not present in the court. Earlier, Salman got exemption from appearing in the court on the ground that he had to be out of the country for medical treatment. “Salman Khan was not present in the court today (Saturday) as he in not in the country and has gone overseas for treatment,” Hastimal Saraswat, Salman Khan’s counsel, said. The next court hearing on charges against Salman will be held on April 27. The charges against the accused have been framed under the Wildlife Protection Act 1972 relating to hunting and inciting to poach blackbucks, an endangered species. The actors are likely to face imprisonment of up to six years if they are sentenced guilty by the court. Moreoevr, Salman will appear in person before a Sessions Court in Mumbai in the 2002 hit-and-run case on March 25. The 47-year-old actor will return from the USA on Saturday (March 23) night to appear before the Court on Monday (March 25). On the fateful night of September 28, 2002, the actor allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol had run over his Toyota Land Cruiser on homeless people who were sleeping on the pavement. In the accident one person was killed and four were injured.

Hit &  Run

Falgun Shroff, the owner of a Mercedes car involved in a hit-and-run case in Versova, surrendered before the police on Tuesday.

The police arrested him and produced him before the Bandra holiday magistrate court, which later released him on bail.

The speeding car had mowed down five pedestrians and two of them were critically injured early on Monday.

The Versova police had registered case of rash and negligent driving against an unidentified person. When the police traced Shroff’s residence on Monday, they found that he was not there and his phone was switched off. After a few hours, Shroff’s driver surrendered before the police along with the car and claimed responsiblity for the accident. But the police were not convinced with his version and did not arrest him. They verified CCTV footage in the area and inquired with witnesses, after which Shroff admitted to his crime.

 

Shroff told the police that he was returning after meeting friends when he lost control of his vehicle. The police stated that they doubted Shroff’s driver’s claims as there were many loopholes in his narration of the sequence of events.

The driver claimed that he tried to avoid a member of a group of five who suddenly came in his way, but ended up losing control of the vehicle and hitting all. The five, who included students and script- writers, share a flat in Versova and had gone for a walk after dinner around 1.30 am.

Shroff fled from the spot after the accident and passersby and the police took the injured to hospital. The injured, however, provided the car licence plate number to the police.

The police approached a showroom inquiring about the car and were led to Shroff, who lives at Lokhandwala, and has a furniture business in Juhu.

 

Crimes  of  Sanjiv  Nanda

 

Sanjeev Nanda (born 1978) is a businessman and the son of Suresh Nanda, an Indian arms dealer, head of the firm Crown Corporation and an ex-naval officer, implicated in a Tehelka expose. He is also the grandson of an ex-Chief of Naval Staff-turned businessman, S. M. Nanda from New Delhi. Sanjeev has been convicted for running over and killing six people, including three policemen.[1] The case attracted enormous media attention, and was viewed by many as “a test of the judicial system’s ability to take on the powerful”.[1] Nanda is also one of the principals in the weapon trading firm Crown Corporation started by his father, Lt. Commander Suresh Nanda (ex-Indian Navy). He also owns several hotels.

Sanjeev Nanda, a management graduate from INSEAD and Wharton, was allegedly in a drunken state when he drove his BMW car at high speed through a police checkpoint at 4:50 AM early morning of January 10, 1999. After running through the policemen, he allegedly stopped the car to check the damage, saw people under the car, and according to the prosecution, at this point co-passenger Manik Kapoor said: ‘‘Let’s go,’’ and they quickly drove away.[2] The car was later cleaned up by servants at a friend’s house.

In the initial court case, Sanjeev and five others were acquitted after many years because the court did not find any of the witnesses reliable and the defense was able to make the case that it was perhaps a truck and not the BMW that had caused the deaths. All the accused were released, resulting in a sharp drop in public confidence in the legal system, since it was widely believed that the witnesses had been bought off.[3] Following the media hue and cry, another court in September 2008 sentenced him to five years in jail.

Also, in March 2008, Sanjeev Nanda and his father were also arrested in Mumbai in connection with the Barak Missile Scandal, in which Crown Corporation allegedly paid large bribes to politicians and defence officials. He is also a British national.

 

BMW hit-and-run case

 

The BMW incident appears to have unfolded as follows:

The incident occurred at 4:50 AM early morning of January 10, 1999. Sanjeev Nanda was returning from a late night party in Gurgaon with friends Manik Kapoor & Siddharth Gupta. Both were in their early twenties and came from influential business families – Manik’s father Sudhir Kapoor runs a thriving export business was one of the closest to the Nanda Family. Sanjeev had apparently been instructed by his parents not to drive that night, but was at the wheel anyway. There was a police checkpoint on Lodhi Road and it appears that the constable may have challenged the car, though it is also possible that the car was going so fast that it was out of control. In any event, it is alleged that Sanjeev’s BMW crashed through all the people at the police checkpoint, immediately killing two constables – Rajan Kumar (25) (of 86th Battalion of the CRPF), Ram Raj (38) of Delhi Home Guard, and two others – Abdul Nasir (30) and Gulab (32), who were apparently being interrogated. Another policeman, Peru Lal (40) of the Delhi Home Guard, along with Mehendi Hassan, died later in hospital. The seventh victim, Manoj (32), survived, but is untraceable today.[4]

After running through the policemen, he allegedly stopped the car to check the damage, saw people under the car, and according to the prosecution, at this point co-passenger Manik Kapoor said: ‘‘Let’s go,’’ and they quickly drove away.[2] The car was then driven to Siddharth Gupta’s house in Golf Links, where Siddharth’s father Rajiv Gupta, who heads the finance firm Motor General Finance, instructed watchman Bhola Nath and driver Shyam Singh Rana to clean the bumpers and bonnet of the car of the blood and vestiges of the victims. Subsequently the police charged these three with destroying evidence. A few days later, a witness Sunil Kulkarni, came forward to describe the scene. At the time of the crash, he was on his way to the railway station. He deposed as follows on Jan 16, 1999:

“They were driving very fast. The car went to the side, crushing two people. A few others were thrown away. The driver got out and looked at the damage done to the car. Then the other person in the car came out and looked behind the car. Then they quickly drove off. I came to the police on the 15th because of my guilty conscience.”[3]

[edit]NDTV sting operation

The prominent criminal lawyers involved in the case were R.K. Anand and I.U. Khan. NDTV carried out a sting operation in which they were caught on camera offering money to Sunil Kulkarni. Later the Delhi High Court barred the advocates from practising for four months.[5]

[edit]Investigation

The vehicle’s broken registration plate was found on the scene the next morning. A 100-yard stretch near the police checkpoint was strewn with body parts and severed limbs amid pools of blood. Preliminary investigations revealed that the car would have been going at 140 km/h when it hit the victims.[6]

Within a few hours of the incident, Inspector Jagdish Pandey of the Police Control Room of Delhi Police was able to trace the BMW by trailing the oil leak from the accident-spot to Rajiv Gupta’s garage.[7] They found the one-month old car, purchased in his sister Sonali Nanda’s name, with foreign number plates, which had not been registered in India. Attempts to clean it were still in progress. Sanjeev and his friends were arrested, but his clothes, and those of the others who helped clean the car, were never found. When Sanjeev and his friends were first charged withCulpable homicide in court, a gaggle of Delhi’s elite descended on Patiala House courts, including ex-Admiral Nanda himself.[4]

[edit]Witnesses

·        Manoj Malik

·        Harishankar[8]

·        Sunil Kulkarni : initially volunteered to have witnessed the accident, later vacillated.

[edit]Trial

During the initial trial, the only survivor, Manoj, said that it might have been a truck that hit them. Since the other six witnesses were dead, Manoj was the only voice. It is widely believed that he had been paid off, and has mysteriously disappeared thereafter. Another witness, Sunil Kulkarni had volunteered to have seen the incident, but the elite defence team was able to discredit him and he was portrayed as having been “put up” by the Delhi Police.

In Sanjeev Nanda’s testimony (in 92 questions over 14 pages), he told Judge S.L. Bayana that he was not driving the car and was not the car’s owner. He said it was his sister’s car and he had nothing to do with the accident.

Sanjeev Nanda spent a few months in jail but was released on bail in May 1999. He was set a surety of a Rs 45 crore (USD 9 million), subsequently reduced to Rs. 15 crore (USD 3 million).

[edit]Re-trial

The case went up for re-trial. Under intense media pressure, the case was tried on a fast-track basis, and on 2 September 2008, Sanjeev Nanda was convicted by a Delhi court for mowing down six persons in the nine-year-old BMW hit-and-run case and can face a ten-year prison term. Nanda, convicted in the BMW hit-and-run case, on 3 August 2012 got a reprieve as the Supreme Court refused to enhance the quantum of punishment of two years already undergone by him and directed him to do community service for two years. [9]

[edit]Barak Missile scam

Sanjeev Nanda is also involved in the Barak missile scam, a case in which his company, the weapon trading firm Crown Corporation, was implicated for massive bribes to Indian politicians and defence officials. A Tehelka investigation in 2001 revealed possible influence Lt-Cmdr Suresh Nanda and Admiral SM Nanda may have had with the Indian Ministry of Defence in swinging deals. In these tapes, the reporter is posing as a representative of the fictional large arms supplier West End. At one point, the Samata Party national treasurer RK Jain is trying to convince Tehelka about his prowess in swinging deals. He mentions how in the first defence deal that he was involved in as the party treasurer, Suresh Nanda of Crown Corporation had paid Samata Party Rs 1 crore to swing the Rs 250-crore (USD 60 million) order for Armoured Recovery Vehicles (ARV) in favour of a Slovakian company.

·        Samata Party treasurer R.K. Jain: “Nanda approached me. Czechoslovakia’s price was the lowest, second Slovakian, third was the Poland.”

·        Tehelka: “Haan, Haan.”

·        R.K. Jain: “He said, ‘I will give you one crore rupees in advance’.”

·        Tehelka: “Okay.”

·        R.K. Jain: “You get disapproved the last one. Czechoslovakia because they are so lower that we cannot match their price.”

·        Tehelka: “Okay.”

·        R.K. Jain: “If you can push him out. Delegation is going on to the… delegation has been ordered to go to Czechoslovakia. Stop this delegation, and technically reject this company. Here are the documents.”

·        Tehelka: “Hmm.”

·        R.K.Jain: “By which it’s proved that this company is closed for the last two years. They will start only after getting this order.”

·        Tehelka: “Yeah, yeah.”

·        R.K. Jain: “I will give one crore rupees. And I will give you… if they are technically disapproved, then you are my agent.”

·        Tehelka: “Yeah.”

·        R.K. Jain: “For this particular… perks… and I will give you so much of commission.”

·        Tehelka: “Okay.”

·        R.K. Jain: “I said, ‘Fine.’ He gave me the correspondence. I took the correspondence to George.”

(the then Defence minister George Fernandes was from Samata Party)

·         Tehelka: “Hmm.”

·         R.K. Jain: “And he said, ‘All right, I’ll reject it.’ He is a very intelligent man.”…

·         Tehelka: Okay, it is manipulated.

·         R.K. Jain: He wrote straight away on the file himself. He never goes and orders to a Joint Secretary. He wrote it himself, and sent the file back. Nanda gave me one crore rupees. He called me, “Yes, Mr. Jain, the file has come down. Like you know George…”

·         Tehelka: Yeah, yeah.[17]

Jain also said that he had received another Rs 1 crore for the Samata Party from Suresh Nanda to help swing the contract for an air-to-air and surface-to-surface missile system for the Indian Navy. Nanda was an agent for the Israeli Barak 1 system.[18]

These tapes were the result of a clandestine sting operation and are not admissible as evidence in court. However, the intense media pressure led to a separate investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation and five years later, R.K. Jain was arrested in February 2006.[19] In October 2006, the Central Bureau of Investigation filed charges against George Fernandes, former Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Sushil Kumar, and others in the Barak missile case, claiming that there was reasonable basis to suspect corruption and criminal conspiracy.[20]

Finally, seven years after the expose, in March 2008, the Nandas were arrested.[21]

Privileged  Prisoners  of  India

 

When the rich and the powerful get on the wrong side of the law, it’s the law that suffers the most. VIP offenders and convicts are often treated by law enforcers as VIPs and not as offenders or convicts. Security officials rolled out the red carpet for Jagir Kaur, former Minister in the Shiromani Akali Dal government in Punjab, following her conviction last week on charges of abduction and wrongful confinement of her daughter in 2000. Video footage from the Kapurthala jail captured the astonishing sight of officials rushing to touch the convict’s feet when she arrived at the prison complex ostensibly to serve out her term. Although Ms Kaur “resigned” as Minister immediately after her conviction, she appears to have lost none of the privileges that come with office. Twice president of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, the powerful body responsible for the administration of gurudwaras, Ms Kaur wields considerable clout within the current government headed by Parkash Singh Badal. Opposition members have already demanded that she be shifted to a jail outside Punjab so she gets a taste of prison life as it is lived by countless other convicts.

Of course, Ms Kaur is not the first person to receive comforts and favours inside a prison cell. Industrialists and politicians convicted for fraud and violent crime have always found ways to carry over their material advantages in the vast, outside world into the confines of a prison. In many cases, they abuse the legal provisions governing incarceration to evade the full rigour of the law. It has, for example, become the done thing for celebrity undertrials and convicts to feign chest pain and seek refuge in high-end hospitals which curiously seem able to delay diagnosing the illness for as long as the patient wants. Stories of well-heeled undertrials being lavished attention in prisons — the 2G accused being a case in point — are a legion. The other trick in the book is parole; the reason for the excursion can be anything, a parent’s illness, the death of a relative, or simply the need to reconnect with the city’s social circuit. Manu Sharma, convicted in the Jessica Lal murder case, famously spent the parole period granted him (originally 30 days but extended by a month) partying, helped in no small measure by his benefactors in the Delhi government. India’s criminal justice system is lax, and many literally get away with murder. For a select few convicted by a court of law, the journey from home to prison brings no ordeal that they cannot bear. When the prison cell door clanks shut behind them, the VIP inmates manage to force open a window to freedom. That’s the sad truth.

Misuse  of  Parole

 

Facing fire over his wayward ways while out on parole, Manu Sharma – convicted for model Jessica Lall’s murder – on Tuesday returned to Tihar Jail.
 
Manu’s parole was to expire on November 22. Manu left a letter for his mother before voluntarily going to the jail and turning himself in.
 
Manu’s decision came after there was a huge uproar when he was actually found pub hopping. His parole was apparently granted to enable him to tend to his sick mother who was actually found addressing a press conference in Chandigarh last week.
 
The last straw came when Manu and a friend Sahil Dhingra got into an altercation at Delhi’s F Bar.
 
The Delhi government faced some embarrassing questions after Headlines Today and sister publication Mail Todayhighlighted the virtual misuse of the parole.
 
Fingers were pointed at Manu’s father Vinod Sharma who is an influential Congress MLA in Haryana. Manu even accompanied his father to a campaign trail in Ambala.
 
Sheila Dikshit government, after initially defending the parole, had to order a probe by the Delhi and Chandigarh police.

 

Vikas  Yadav   Son  of  D P YADAV

 

Vikas Yadav (Hindi विकास यादव) is the son of the noted criminal-politician from Uttar PradeshD.P. Yadav, and his politician wife Umlesh Yadav, both of whom are currently member of the state legislative assembly in Uttar Pradesh. Vikas Yadav has been convicted of criminal offenses for obstruction of justice in the murder of [[]], and found guilty in the murder of Nitish Katara.

Vikas was found guilty of the murder of Nitish Katara, who had fallen in love[1] with Bharti Yadav, Vikas’ sister, a relationship that the family did not approve of. After a trial that lasted almost seven years, he was sentenced to life imprisonment on 30 May 2008.[2]

The court found Vikas, son of UP politician D.P Yadav, guilty of murder, criminal conspiracy and destruction of evidence. The court also rejected the plea of Vikas that the pronouncement of verdict be stayed as the Delhi High Court is likely to hear his application seeking a stay on trial court proceedings today. The judge posed a query to defence counsel G.K. Bharti as to whether the High Court had stayed the proceedings in this court. Finding the reply in negative, the court pronounced its verdict: “I hold Vikas Yadav and Vishal Yadav guilty under sections 302, 364, 201 and 34 of the IPC.” The prosecution on its part has made it clear that they will press for capital punishment.

Reacting to the defence lawyers claim that the verdict came because of intense media pressure, the public prosecutor said, “I don’t think that’s true. We had a watertight case as we had presented more than 20 circumstantial evidences. By ruling in our favour, the court has proved that we were right.” Earlier, the court had dismissed Vikas Yadav’s plea seeking re-examination of key witness Ajay Katara and others.

An emotional Neelam Katara, mother of Nitish, said it was a milestone judgement. “It’s a big relief. It’s a milestone judgement. I thank Vishnu,” said Neelam.

Nitish, son of an IAS officer, was allegedly killed by the accused Vikas and his cousin Vishal Yadav on the intervening night of February 16-17, 2002. According to an initial confession by Vikas[3] audiotaped by police, he abducted Nitish from a marriage function in Ghaziabad, and killed him by hitting his head with a hammer in Vikas’s car.

Vikas, after being convicted in the murder of Nitish, was in and out of Tihar Jail 66 times between May 30, 2008 and February 8, 2010, averaging five trips a month.[4]

 

Nitish  Katara  Murder  Case

 

Nitish Katara was a 24-year-old Indian business executive in Delhi, who was murdered in the early hours of 17 February 2002, by Vikas Yadav the son of influential criminal-politician D. P. Yadav. Nitish had recently graduated from the Institute of Management Technology,Ghaziabad, where, he had fallen in love with his classmate, Bharti Yadav, sister of Vikas.[1] The trial court held that Nitish’s murder was anhonour killing because the family did not approve their relationship.[2] Vikas and Vishal Yadav were later found guilty by the trial Court and awarded life sentence on 30 May 2008.[3]

The Yadav family never approved of the relationship between the two, and Katara received threats several times.[4] However, he was an idealist, and believed in “standing up to injustice”.[5] On the night of 17 February 2002, the couple attended a common friend’s wedding, where Yadavs’s brother, Vikas, and a cousin were present as well. From there, Katara was taken for a drive by Yadav’s brother Vikas Yadav and Vishal Yadav, and never returned. Three days later, Katar’s body was found beside the highway; he had been battered to death with a hammer, diesel poured on him, and set aflame.

[edit]Relationship

By 2002, Katara and Bharti Yadav were an established couple; they had been seeing each other for over four years. In her court testimony in 2006, Bharti Yadav denied any relationship beyond friendship[6]

Why the Yadav family did not approve of the alliance is not clear. In his confession to the police, Vikas Yadav stated that “the affair was damaging our family’s reputation”.[7]Nitish was threatened several times,[4] and Bharti was tense about how her family might react.[8][dead link]

[edit]The friend’s wedding

On 2002-02-16, Yadav and Katara attended a friends wedding in Ghaziabad. Bharti’s mother, her brother Vikas and sister Bhavna were all there.

After the wedding, four people remembered seeing Vikas Yadav and his cousin Vishal Yadav take Katara into their Tata Safari SUV.[citation needed] His friends thought he would be returning soon, but when they had not returned till well past midnight, Bharat Divakar, who had accompanied Nitish to the wedding in a taxi, went to their house. It was 3 am when Neelam Katara opened the door, and she immediately called Bharti. It turned out that Bharti herself was trying to find out Nitish’s whereabouts. She asked Neelam “to go to the police, adding that maybe her brothers – Vikas and Vishal – had taken Nitish to Punjab”.[8][dead link] Bharti is thought to have called her sister Bhavna Yadav, whose registered mobile phone number was used all night to call many friends of the couple, as well as Neelam Katara.[9]

Yadav also gave Neelam Katara her father’s number, and after a fruitless visit to the police, at 8 in the morning, Neelam called D. P. Yadav, who did not know where Vikas or Nitish might be.[6]

Next morning, the police found a battered and burned body at Khurja, 80 km from the wedding venue. The body had been so badly beaten that “the digestive system had fallen out”.[6]

[10]

At 11 in the morning, Neelam Katara filed a First Information Report. Based on initial statements by her and Bharti Yadav, warrants were issued for Vikas and Vishal.

[edit]Arrest and confessions

Inspector Ashok Bidhoria arrested Vikas and Vishal Yadav in Dabra, and in his original statement to the court, he said that the Yadavs had confessed having kidnapped Katara from Kavi Nagar, Ghaziabad.[11] However, under cross-examination the inspector changed his stand saying the accused persons made no confessional statements in his presence.[citation needed]

Another police constable, Brij Mohan Mishra, who was at the Dabra police station where the Yadavs were brought after being arrested, said in court, “The accused persons themselves said that they had murdered Nitish Katara after kidnapping him. He added that he had told inspector Bidhoria about the disclosure, but Bidhoria ‘did not produce me before any magistrate to get my statement recorded’.” It was reported that Bidhoria is a business associate of D P Yadav, but he denied that this fact may have had any bearing on his actions.[11]

After being handed over to the U.P. police, they gave a more detailed confession on having kidnapped and killed Nitish Katara, which the Police recorded on audiotape. In May 2006, the NDTV news channel managed to obtain the tape and broadcast it. In this confession, Yadav admitted to taking Katara from the party, murdering him, and burning the body.[7] Although this confession, which was made a week or so after the murder, was not formalised before a magistrate, and was therefore not admissible as evidence in court, the fact that the hammer and watch were found based on this deposition may have weighed with the trial court when it reached its verdict.[12]

Bharti Yadav, whose testimony was being sought in the trial, moved to London for an extended period shortly after the murder. From there, she apparently sent some e-mails to Katara’s brother, which blame her father D. P. Yadav for sanctioning the murder.[10] In her subsequent court testimony however, she has claimed that the account was not hers.[citation needed]

[edit]Bharti Yadav Testimony

Considerable drama and media attention focused on the protracted struggle (over four and a half years) to obtain the testimony of Bharti Yadav. Her reluctance to testify only highlighted media speculation that the family was worried her testimony might go against her own brother.[13] Lawyers on her behalf made 39 appeals that she be relieved.[14]In March 2005, the Uttar Pradesh state prosecution counsel also moved that she not be called.

Initially, Bharti told a policewoman of her love for Nitish.[15] But in March 2002, within two weeks of this initial verbal statement, a team of the Ghaziabad police headed by Dr Dharam Veer Singh and Anil Samanya met Bharati Yadav and D. P. Yadav, at his Rajya Sabha residence. She told them that “her relationship with Nitish was like that of a classmate and there was nothing special about them.”[16]

Immediately after this, Bharti Yadav went to London to study and “was believed to have been working as a staff nurse”.[17] The family strongly resisted her being called as a witness. She could not be contacted, and repeated warrants and non-bailable warrants were not heeded to.

By March 2004, all other witnesses in the case had been examined, except for Bharti Yadav.[18] Pressure mounted on getting Bharti Yadav to testify. After a year without success, the UP prosecuting team dropped her as a prosecution witness, which was challenged by Neelam Katara,[19] saying that she was a material witness, and in dropping her, the prosecution may have been influenced by D. P. Yadav. Delhi prosecutor Mukta Gupta in September 2005 said that “it showed the malafide intention of the Uttar Pradesh Prosecutor to request for dropping of Bharti as witness”.[20] In October 2005, the court ruled that she was a material witness and would be required to testify.[21]

In August 2006, the Supreme Court, responding to an appeal from Nitish Katara’s mother, shifted the trial from Ghaziabad to Delhi because of D. P. Yadav’s considerable influence in the area, including its administration and judiciary.[22]

Meanwhile, despite several court warrants, Bharti still could not be traced. In May 2006, Bharti Yadav’s passport was revoked by the Ministry of External Affairs,[23] so that her stay in UK was technically illegal. Furthermore, her visa was expiring on 30 November, making it difficult for her to continue living in the UK.[24] In May 2006, D. P. Yadav stated in court that he did not know his daughter’s whereabouts.[17]

On 22 July 2006, an application was moved by Bharti’s maternal uncle Bharat Singh (a member of the UP Legislative Council), requesting that she be permitted to testify viaVideo conferencing.[25] However, the court turned down this request noting that “since she has chosen to stay away from the court, thereby delaying the proceedings substantially, the court was satisfied that she had absconded by avoiding appearance before the court despite having sufficient knowledge of the proceedings pending in the court where her presence as a witness was required”.[18]

In danger of being declared proclaimed offender, under which circumstance she could have been arrested and deported from London, Bharti finally returned to depose before the court. Based on her convenience, 25 November 2006 was set for her testimony, and she was assured that she would not be detained upon arrival. The trial court permitted her to testify in camera, ruling out the media, but permitting the defendant’s parents, as well as Neelam Katara, to attend.

In her actual testimony, Yadav denied any romantic attachment to Katara, and said that they had simply been close friends. She also denied having sent certain emails. However, she acknowledged having sent the cards and gifts.[26] The prosecution stated that this evidence was key in obtaining the eventual conviction, as it established motive.

[edit]Witnesses turn hostile

Of the four people at the wedding who had initially said they saw Nitish go into the car with Vikas, three had already withdrawn their testimony. Only Rohit Gaur, brother of Shivani Gaur, whose wedding it was, was left as having seen Vikas and Vishal taking Nitish in his car. However, on 26 September 2006, he made the following statement in court:

It is incorrect to suggest that I informed the police that on the day of the marriage, around midnight, Vishal came near Nitish Katara and had a conversation with him and took him outside where Vikas Yadav was present and that both Vikas and Vishal took Nitish in their vehicle.[4]

He also denied having stated that Bharti and Nitish were lovers.

Another constable, Inderjeet, who had initially testified to seeing Vikas, Vishal, and Sukhdev Pehalwan with Nitish in the Tata Safari on the night of 16 February, now denied this in language remarkably similar to other retractions: “it was wrong to suggest that he had seen the three accused with the victim in a Tata Safari”.[27]

[edit]Ajay Kumar

In a decision refusing bail to Sukhdev Pehalwan in April 2007, Justice B.D. Ahmed pointed to the relevance of the testimony of passerby Ajay Kumar, who had seen them on the fateful night:

Ajay Kumar who, in his Section 161 Cr. P.C. Statement, is reported to have stated that on the intervening night 16–17 February 2002, he was traveling on his two wheeler (Scooter) from 47th Battalion, PAC Quarters towards Delhi when, around 12:30 a.m. at the Hapur Toll Tax Crossing his scooter broke down. Shortly thereafter, a Tata Safari driven by the accused Vikas Yadav came from behind from the direction of Police Station Kavi Nagar, Ghaziabad and the said Vikas Yadav asked him to remove his scooter immediately. It is stated that the said Ajay Kumar saw one person who had a round face and a fair complexion and was wearing a red Kurta and who had covered his shoulder with a white shawl sitting next to Vikas Yadav in the Tata Safari. The said witness (Ajay Kumar) has also reported to have seen Vishal Yadav and the petitioner on the back seat.[28]

In June 2007, Ajay Kumar (also referred to as Ajay Katara, but not a relative[29]) had filed a complaint to the police that “he was under pressure to withdraw from the case” and that “his life was in danger”.[30] He was then assigned four personal security officers (PSOs) on the orders of the trial court.[29] On 12 July 2007, two brothers, Manoj and Anuj Sharma, called him to the Mohan Nagar temple saying he could meet his separated wife there to sort out his domestic problems. Three more people were apparently waiting nearby in a car. But his wife never showed up and the Sharmas bought him some chaat.[29] Right after eating it, Ajay suddenly took very ill, vomiting and complaining of stomach cramps.[30] He immediately went to hospital, where he was treated for food poisoning. A case has been registered against D. P. Yadav and four others on suspicion of having poisoned Ajay Kumar.[31]

[edit]Kumar Diwan

In July 2007, one Pawan Kumar Diwan suddenly showed up for the defence, saying that Vikas Yadav had come to his house in Karnal, at 3 am on the night of 16–17 February 2002, for attending a ceremony the following day. He also submitted photographs showing Vikas Yadav at the ceremony.[32]

Vikas and Vishal were found guilty by the trial court on 28 May 2008. Both were awarded life imprisonment on 30 May 2008. The convicts have stated that they would appeal against the decision in the higher courts. [33]

[edit]Decision

On 30 May 2008 New Delhi fast track court sentenced Vikas and Vishal Yadav to life sentences for the kidnap and murder of Nitish Katara. Both were also fined Rs.160,000 each.[34][35]

In November 2009, Vikas Yadav was granted bail to attend the arranged marriage of Bharti to a local businessman.[36][37] Vikas Yadav was granted bail 66 times in the first two years of his incarceration, often with no clear reason documented.[38] Nitish Katara’s mother accused the jail authorities of colluding with Yadav’s influential family and requested a formal investigation.[38] The Delhi High Court accused Vikas Yadav of repeatedly becoming involved in criminal activities whilst out on bail, including involvement in the Jessica Lal case,[39] as well as absconding on two occasions.[39]

Delhi Police constables to face action for colluding with Vikas Yadav

 

 The Delhi Police will initiate action against its own men after it was found that they were colluding with Vikas Yadav, convicted for the murder of Nitish Katara.  

An official report has found out that Vikas Yadav spent last Diwali at home without parole. According to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) records, Vikas was missing from his hospital room on Diwali night in October 2011. 

Call records indicate that the two constables, meant to be guarding Vikas, who is serving a life sentence, were not at AIIMs but in Chattarpur and Mehrauli in South Delhi.

 

Vikas, along with his cousin Vishal Yadav, was convicted in 2008 for kidnapping and murdering Nitish Katara, a close friend of his sister Bharti. The duo killed Nitish Katara, son of an Indian Administrative Service officer, on February 17, 2002, after abducting him from a marriage party in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad as they were opposed to his relationship with Bharti.

Vikas, the son of former MP, DP Yadav, along with his cousin Vishal and hired killer Sukhdev Pehalwan, are serving life terms in Delhi’s Tihar Jail.

Bangalore Rural DC Aiyappa, three revenue officials held

http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/images/pixel.gif

BANGALORE: Lokayukta police have arrested Bangalore Rural district deputy commissioner MK Aiyappa, a special tahsildar, a revenue inspector and a sub-registrar for allegedly changing records pertaining to 32 acres of land in Survey No. 62 of Madappanahalli, near Yelahanka.

Lokayukta additional director general of police HNS Rao said they registered a case against 15 persons, including IAS officer Aiyappa (then Bangalore Urban deputy commissioner), special tahsildar (Bangalore North) K Gopalaswamy, revenue inspector N Balakrishnamurthy of Arakere circle, Hesaraghatta, and sub-registrar (Hesaraghatta) KV Ravi Kumar.

 

The arrested officials were produced in the Lokayukta court, which remanded them to a day in police custody. The Lokayukta court had on November 5 last year ordered that a case be filed under Sections 13 (1)( c), (d), (e) and 13(2) read with Section 12 of the Prevention of Corruption Act as well as criminal Sections 406, 409, 420, 426, 463, 468, 471, 474 read with Section 120-B (criminal conspiracy).

The Lokayukta court order followed a private complaint by P Anil Kumar, a resident of Hesaraghatta.

Preliminary investigation revealed the land was gomala land (common property resource used for livestock grazing), but a person named Narasimhaiah claimed ownership of all the 32 acres. Records were created and the land restored to him, but the then revenue inspector restored the title to the government. Even as the legal dispute was pending, the land was purchased by private individuals. The Hesaraghatta sub-registrar registered the land in their names in 2009.

“The present rate for the land is about Rs 60 crore. Bigwigs named in the complaint will be questioned, including the purchasers. Everything is on record, and nobody can deny their responsibility in taking away government land and restoring it to private individuals,” a Lokayukta police official privy to the investigation told TOI.

There will be some more arrests, he added, as there’s ample documentary evidence and other witness accounts available.

 

“There is a higher court than the court of justice and that is the court of conscience It super cedes all other courts. ”

SHAMELESS  JUDGES  &  MAFIA   –  Judicial Layout Site Allotment                                              – BRIBE TO JUDGES ?

 

Are  not these CORRUPT  judges & police ashamed . They take  tens of thousands  of  rupees  salaray  per  month ,   add to it perks worth thousands , still they fail to do their  duties  and collude with mafia , criminals.

 

Inspite of repeted appeals for  justice , information , the following public servants have failed to do their duties , the following public servants have repeatedly failed to answer to Final Show-cause Notices served to them.  They are not even  accepting my conditional offer  of  services  to apprehend the criminals within public service. Thereby , they are shielding the criminals & colluding with the criminals.

 

 

It  publicly  proves on record  that  Chief Justice of India  , Karnataka Director General Of  Police and Other Public Servants  mentioned below   are CRIMINALS  taking salary from Public Exchequer but serving criminals against public interest.

 

 

 

 

Is the  allotment of  residential plots to Judges @ yelahanka Judicial Layout , a mode of  paying bribe to judges by the biggest litigant government itself & the  corrupt public servants in the government. So that the government can pass illegal laws like “Regularization of Illegal Buildings” , “ Illegal Appointments to Medical colleges in Hassan , Mysore” ,etc &  ministers , IAS officers  can indulge in illegal unconstitutional acts , but the courts will not  take any  appropriate action suo motto or based on any petition. IT IS  MUTUAL HELP , NEXUS OF TWO CRIMINALS – JUDICIARY & GOVERNMENT. Ofcourse , there are honest few exceptions in judiciary & government. We Respect those honest few. 
  
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 public servants 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 being followed intoto by public servants. However the recent delhi high court ruling affirming that CJI is under RTI purview & bound to answer RTI request , is noteworthy.
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 I 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 work practices 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 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 at following web page :  http://sites.google.com/site/eclarionofdalit/deals-in-courts 

 

 

 

Save  Hebbal  Lake  Save  BEML Quarters Lake  in  Mysore                                                                   –  An  Appeal  to  Honourable Supreme Court of India

 

 

 

   In the  past , Mysore Maharaja & other philanthropists  have donated  their personal lands , properties , built many lakes & ponds in mysore , bangalore  and other places with public concern  ,  public  wellbeing  in their mind . They built  these lakes & ponds  in addition to preserving the natural lakes & ponds.  They  knew  about the importance of ecological balance & environment. The present rulers , IAS & KAS  babus  have even failed to  preserve  the lakes & ponds  built  decades ago , let alone build one.   These  Public servants have extended their tacit  support to building mafia , to   kill these lakes & ponds , to fill those  lakes with industrial effluents ,  sewage  & building  mud wastes. After killing those lakes & ponds , the building mafia encroaches on it  & usurps  that  public property  in turn selling it for crores of rupees.

 

    In this way , Hootagalli lake was killed  &  encroached by Kaynes Hotel  ( now silent shores hotel) ,  Hebbal Lake  is being  killed & encroached  from all sides by industries  and  the lake infront of BEML Quarters  is being killed  &  land  demarcation for selling those  land has already begun.

 

The public servants  were totally  indifferent  towards  public outcry against this . The IAS & KAS  babus  who are also magistrates  with judicial authority  have failed  in preserving these lakes & ponds inspite of appeals  to them.  These death of lakes resulting in their encroachments could have been prevented earlier  by DC , Tahsildar , MUDA Commissioner & KIADB Officers. Even I have appealed to them through my web news paper , they didn’t take action at all.  I have made RTI request to those authorities  to give me information regarding status of those lakes  years ago , fearing  truth will come out  they didn’t anwer my questions in full , they only gave half truths. When I persisited with  my  RTI request  the Mysore District Magistrate at that time  Mr. P.Manivannan repeatedly called me over phone , abused me & threatened me .  Even threats were made by some policemen  in mufti .  Finally that lake land was allotted to an industrially supposed to be close to  Industries minister at that time.  The courts  are dispassionate & inhuman , while passing eviction orders against poor people , the  police are full of guts  & show their full bravery , valour against these poor land encroachers. Fine , let us appreciate their duty consciousness . However  rich & well connected criminals have illegally encroached upon  public lands , the same  courts  and police are not taking  appropriate action  inspite of repeated appeals , why ?  Even the  Supreme Court of India & Police are Weak & Meak before Land Mafia. Don’t the same Judges & Police have Guts , Bravery , Duty Conciousness & Integrity to take action against such  rich land grabbers ?  The answer lies in the following articles.

Illogical land laws fostering mafia, says High Court judge

 

 

Acting Chief Justice of High Court of Karnataka, Justice K Sreedhar Rao on Saturday said lack of logic in several laws, including land reforms and acquisition laws, is encouraging land mafia, especially in urban centres. 

“The existing Land Acquisition Act is the greatest enemy of the common man. We have only encouraged land mafia through legislation,” he said, while addressing the National Consultation on “Urban Poor and the Law,” organised by National Law School of India University (NLSIU) here.

Justice Rao said laws related to land need an overhaul, to ensure owners of the land get a share of development. “The growth of real estate mafias and skyrocketing property prices hindered average income earners from purchasing property. By creating mega cities, we have done a great damage to the country,” he added.

Justice Rao said various governments have failed to develop district and taluk head quarters as a result of which we are not able to prevent migration to cities. “Bangalore has developed as a cancerous slum. The urban areas are not having the infrastructure or facilities to deal with this massive population inflow,” he said. The judge also pointed out that the zoning laws often allow arbitrary classifications without taking into account the real situations on ground.

P K Mohanty, Additional Secretary, Union Ministry of Housing and Poverty Alleviation, said the proposed law for property rights for urban poor, to ensure spaces for street vendors, was under consideration and it would be soon placed before the Parliament. 

A major issue that needs to be addressed is residency rights of urban poor in the context of vulnerabilities that they face. Though several governmental programmes, specially JNNURM were designed for this purpose, there was a lack of sufficient response from the States to avail the funds and use them in time, he said.

 

BMTF proposes, government disposes

 

Siddaiah was brought back to BBMP despite request for his suspension for his role in DLF case

Senior IAS officer H. Siddaiah, who returned as Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Commissioner for a second stint, has come under the scanner of the Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force (BMTF) as a ‘suspect officer’ for his alleged role in the DLF case.

The BMTF, probing the DLF scam that involved illegal widening of a road to facilitate an increase in the floor area ratio (FAR) of an apartment complex, had named Mr. Siddaiah, his predecessor Bharat Lal Meena, besides the former Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) Commissioner Pradeep Singh Kharola among the three IAS officers whose role had surfaced during its investigation “based on oral and documentary evidence”.

BMTF letter

In a letter to Chief Secretary S.V. Ranganath, dated November 29, 2012, the BMTF had sought to place under suspension these three officials, besides 23 others of the BDA and BBMP, to facilitate fair probe.

However, the government chose to ignore the BMTF’s recommendation and brought Mr. Siddaiah back to the BBMP from the Higher Education Department where he was serving as Principal Secretary, thus replacing Commissioner Rajneesh Goel.

The report also names several senior officials of the BBMP and the BDA as “suspect officials” for having allegedly colluded to allow the DLF to up the FAR for its projects, violating BBMP bylaws and BDA’s master plan.

Charge against Shettar

Meanwhile, RTI activist Dinesh Kallahalli accused Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar of trying to hush up the matter by bringing back the same “suspect” officials. He plans to seekGovernor H.R. Bhardwaj’s intervention in the matter as the Chief Minister was involved.

Speaking at a press conference here on Saturday, Mr. Kallahalli said Tirakana Goudar, Town Planning Member (TPM) in the BDA, who was reinstated to his post while he was out on bail, was also being favoured by the Chief Minister.

DLF violations

The BMTF has arrested Mr. Goudar, who was charged with helping DLF Southern Homes legalise construction beyond what was permitted on a civic amenity (CA) site. He was accused of approving the widening of the Hulimavu-Begur Road to legalise DLF Southern Homes illegal construction.

“DLF constructed 1,962 flats instead of the 440 for which they had taken permission. We are not even able to get documents under the Right to Information Act. We want the Governor to intervene,” Mr. Kallahalli said.

 

LAND SCAM   IN   TAMILNADU   One for my officer, one for my boy…

 

Land and property are coveted assets. So why are chief ministers allowed to give these away as favours? JEEMON JACOB tracks how Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi has been using his quotas

 

ILLUSTRATION: ANAND NAOREM

IN NOVEMBER, Chief Minister of Karnataka BS Yeddyurappa almost lost his job, due to the uproar over preferential allotment of land and property to his sons and close associates. He has since cancelled the allotments, asked his children to move out of his official residence, and retained his seat through some deft political manoeuvring and muscle-flexing. At the height of the campaign against him, as political opponents paraded on apparent moral high ground, TEHELKA published details of plots similarly allotted by previous Karnataka chief ministers, both of the Congress and the JD(S), to relatives, servants, drivers, maids and partymen (LAND SCAM 2.0, 4 December). The purpose was not to make Yeddyurappa’s wrongdoings look less shocking, but to show that the problem was endemic and needed rooting out. The right given to chief ministers to hand out public land to a favoured few — relatives, bureaucrats, judges, police officers and others — smacks of nepotism and arbitrary feudal power structures that should have no place in a modern democracy. (Though there is no immediate proof of this, some of these allotments could also be benamitransactions, in which the ultimate ownership remains with the distributor of the largesse, camouflaged by a stack of fake documents.)

This power — euphemistically called “discretionary quota” — has even been used to favour allegedly corrupt army officers like General Deepak Kapoor (AT EASE WITH GREASE, TEHELKA, 20 November), who was given a large 500 sq yd plot in Haryana by the Hooda government, which then faced the embarrassment of refusing him permission to sell it off before five years had elapsed, as per rules. The plot was given to him by the government as preferential allotment in recognition for his ‘outstanding achievement’.

This week, continuing its campaign against out-of-turn allotments of land and property, TEHELKA has an exposé on Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi. The Tamil Nadu Housing Board (TNHB) which commands a large land bank, has a government discretionary quota (GDQ) under which 15 percent of all allotments can be recommended by the CM. Eligibility for allotment under GDQ is as follows: single/deserted women; widows; social workers; physically handicapped persons; defence personnel; ex-servicemen; eminent persons in the field of science, arts, literature, economics, public administration and sports; freedom fighters; government servants with unblemished service records; employees of PSUs, central government undertakings and nationalised banks; PF institutions; journalists; university staff; and employees of local bodies and municipalities.

While some of these categories sound kosher, most of them raise a fundamental question: why should the government have the power to give coveted land to select employees and journalists over others? The only rationale could be proximity — which is an untenable reason for being the beneficiary of political favours, often worth several crores.

Setting this aside, even within the legal ambit of the GDQ, TEHELKA’s investigation shows that many of the allotments in Karunanidhi’s tenure have violated the rule book. Many bureaucrats and their relatives have been given plots or flats under the category of “social worker”. Some of these last did social work when they were in college; many of them claim to be volunteers in such routine activity as helping in blood donation or eye camps. Many have issued certificates to themselves; some have acquired letters from the Lions and Rotary Clubs with vague endorsements. In other violations, the rules say that no one who has any other land or property in Tamil Nadu or any other capital city, in either their own or spouse or minor children’s name, can apply for GDQ allotments. TEHELKA found this is routinely violated.

Many of the allottees issued certificates to themselves, while some got letters from Lions and Rotary Clubs

The other brazen violation lies in the claim of “unblemished” service records as a qualification for allotment. When RTI activist V Gopalakrishnan sought a list of such bureaucrats, Additional Secretary S Solomon Raj said, “As no unblemished government servant certificates are issued, the question of furnishing a list of names does not arise.” The additional secretary also clarified that the home department didn’t have such a list. This is the phantom category under which many public servants like Jaffar Sait, 1986 batch IPS officer, now Inspector General of Police–Intelligence, got large allotments of land in prime locations. Why them more than hundreds of others? That’s a democratic question the chief minister will have to answer.

SIZE: 120 SQ M & 139 SQ M
PRICE: Rs. 27.55 LAKH & Rs. 30.05 LAKH
CURRENT MARKET PRICE: NA

VIOLATIONS
The judge was allotted two adjoining plots on the same day (30 March 2008). According to her Disclosure of Assets statement of 2009, the judge already had a house in her name, and another plot in her husband, advocate K Ganesan’s name. The house, in the Uthangarai area of Krishnagiri district, was constructed in 1985 on a plot purchased in 1982. The plot of land is located in Saidapet and was purchased in 1993. She however admits in her declaration that she owns two plots, which she purchased from the TN Housing Board in 2008. But this allocation was made under the General Category. Since judges do not come under any of the quota categories, the government’s way of allotting land to them differs from the rest. Judges are informed about the availability of land. And when they apply for the same, the government facilitates the allotment.

CURRENT MARKET PRICE: Rs. 6 CRORE

VIOLATIONS
Allotted under ‘unblemished’ government servant category. On 6 June 2008, the government transferred the ownership of the plot to his daughter Jennifer Jaffar, then a student. Jennifer made two payments of Rs. 46.03 lakh and Rs.1.73 lakh towards cost of the plot. In February 2009, she paid another Rs.60 lakh. After having paid Rs.1.07 crore, the ownership of plot was transferred to her mother Parvin Jaffar. Interestingly, Parvin also made the payment all over again. In October 2009, she paid Rs. 50.64 lakh and then again in November 2009, another Rs. 25 lakh was deposited. A further payment of Rs. 51.5 lakh in the same month was made. Income tax officials feel the Sait family made the double payment to avoid an IT investigation on Jennifer, who would not have been able to show any source of income. The Tamil Nadu Housing Board then returned the original amount paid by Jennifer. Now, Parvin in collaboration with Durga Sankar, son of an IAS officer, has commissioned a builder to construct a multi-storey complex in which 12 flats have already been built. Each flat is expected to fetch an estimated 1 crore. So, by paying Rs. 1.26 crore in 2009, the IGP’s family made a profit of more than Rs. 5.7 crore.

Reactions to Land Scam 3.0

D Yashoda, Congress MLA, Kancheepuram

“I have done a lot of work for Dalits throughout Tamil Nadu, especially in Sriperumbudur and Chennai. I have helped them in getting pattas for their land, recommending their names for loans from banks, distributing cycles to Dalits on the birthdays of Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi.”

Jaffar Sait, IPS, IG-Intelligence

“Government agencies have already probed the matter. I am being governed by the conduct rules, so I should not talk to you about the issue. It is advisable that you seek a response from the Tamil Nadu government. I would like to add that if any defamation or liability arises out of your article, necessary legal action would be taken.”

P Moorthy, Madurai MLA

“I don’t know much about the certificate, I think I got the plot because I’m an MLA. I have done a lot of work in uplifting the people in villages of my constituency. That amounts to social work. I don’t need a social work certificate from the Lions Club but my friends, partners and I took the certificate anyway. “

 

 

‘GDQ is a way of making you part of the syndicate’

BY JEEMON JACOB

 

C Umashanker

PHOTO: JEEMON JACOB

A1990 batch IAS officer, C Umashanker shot to fame during the AIADMK regime when he exposed a scam in the construction of sheds in a cremation ground under the Jawahar Rozgar Yojana when he was additional collector in Madurai. His brush with AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa’s partymen resulted in his transfer out of the district.

Later, when the DMK came to power, he was appointed managing director of the state-run Electronic Corporation of Tamil Nadu and put in charge of procuring colour television sets for free distribution to the poor in the state, in keeping with an election promise of the DMK. He was transferred with immediate effect after he exposed corporate fraud committed by the joint venture promoter ELNET Technologies Ltd.

Later, he was posted as managing director of the state-run Arasu Cable TV Corporation. In this capacity, he opposed the monopoly of Sumangali Corporation run by Kalanidhi Maran. He also took steps to nationalise Sumangali Cable Vision. By that time, Maran had a patch-up with the Karunanidhi family and Umashanker was transferred with immediate effect.

Later, the anti-corruption and vigilance department registered a case against him for disproportionate assets. The government suspended him for claiming fake caste certificate as a Dalit when he is a practising Christian.

Plots are allotted even without any formal applications. There is no transparency at all

He lodged a complaint with the National Backward Commission against his suspension and got a favourable order from the High Court. At present, he is managing director of Tamil Nadu Small Industries Corporation.

Umashanker was allotted a plot (under government order 2D 325) on 3 April 2008 at Thiruvanmiyur Extension when he was in charge of the free colour television for the poor programme. For this, he would have had to pay 55.12 lakh. He wrote to the chief minister that he could not afford to pay such a huge amount. Later, his allotment was cancelled without stating any reason.

Umashanker revealed he had an MIG flat in his name when the plot was allotted and he was not aware about the rule of Tamil Nadu Housing Board (TNHB) that he can’t claim a plot when he has another flat in his name.

It certainly seems commendable that Umashanker turned down a chance to own a plot in Thiruvanmiyur Extension, one of the poshest areas of the city. The plot is just 300 metres from the beach.

Though the entire colony has been parcelled out to those close to the ruling establishment, it is the nouveau riche and the industrialists who dream of owning a house in Thiruvanmiyur, where they can rub shoulders with former judges, bureaucrats and political power brokers. If and when the allottees decide to sell their plots, they can demand extremely high prices.

In a frank chat, Umashanker talks about how the government discretionary quota has been misused. Excerpts:


Why are bureaucrats, judges, former judges and politicians given housing plots in posh localities under government discretionary quota?
Who can refuse a good piece of land in Chennai city? It’s a way of rewarding people for good work done. No inquiry has been conducted in this matter so far. Discretionary quota is the prerogative of the government. After RTI came into existence, several activists are taking up the matter in court. Basically, there is no control mechanism or checks and balances. There is little transparency while awarding the GDQ — the plots are allotted without formal applications.

You were also allotted a plot in 2008 under the ‘unblemished government servant’ category. What happened to the allotment?
Yes, I was allotted a plot in Thiruvanmiyur Extension. Initial payment for the plot was Rs. 25 lakh. I never had that much money. So I requested the government to reduce the price. But there was no response. I did not want a house to compromise my integrity. So I never took possession. Later, in 2009, the government ordered a vigilance inquiry against me and cancelled the allotment. Frankly, I was not aware about the TNHB rules that bars a person having a plot, a flat or a house from claiming another plot.

Do you think the GDQ quota is a way of silencing people, buying them out?
Yes, it is a way of making you a part of the syndicate. Plots or flats are given to those civil servants, judges or relatives of the bureaucrats or politicians for complying with certain requirements. There is no procedure for IAS or IPS officers to get a land or plot or flat in a transparent manner. So everybody uses short cuts.

 

Minister’s DQ proves judges are more corrupt than civil  servant

 

NEW DELHI/BHUBANESWAR: An investigation by Cobra post and IBN Network has revealed how former and sitting judges of Orissa, police officers and bureaucrats have received flats from the DiscretionaryQuota (DQ) of ministers. As a matter of fact, successive Urban Development Ministers in the Naveen Patnaik government have misused the discretionary housing quota.

According to the revelation, the judges have got the ‘minister quota’ flats out of turn and at cheaper rates.

The IBN Network accessed letters of judges written to the government asking for prime property in Cuttack and Bhubaneswar.

Prime properties were acquired in Cuttack at concession rates, bypassing the Cuttack Development Authority. In fact, Sectors 10, 11 and 13 of Cuttack’s Abhinav Bidanasi project has practically become a judges’ residential colony.

Former Chief Justice G B. Patnaik is a resident of flat 1B/22 in Sector 11 while former Orissa High CourtJudge Radhakrishna Patra has flat 1B/23 in the same sector, given out on lease.

Supreme Court judge Deba Priya Mohapatra, Orissa High Court judges Sanju Panda, Madan Mohan Das, Nityanand Prastuti also own flats in Sector 10 and 11.Papers for the flats were prepared quickly and some judges even got preferred plots.

Most of the allotments took place between 2000 and 2007, under the BJP  cadre Urban and Housing Development Minister  Sameer De who was State Development Minister from 2000-2004 and then Kanak Vardhan Singh Deo who called the shots from 2004 to 2007.

All that the judges had to do was written to the Minister. The CNN-IBN has a letter written by Justice Madan Mohan Das to the CDA Chairman and to Minister Kanak Vardhan Singhdeo, asking for a B-Category Flat in Sector 10, saying he would ensure a third party transfer of a C-Category Flat already owned by his wife.Justice Das was allotted the flat in just six days.

 

When asked why the discretionary quota was used to make the allotments, Sameer Dey, former Orissa urban development minister, said, “The Orissa act does not have any such rule. There is 5 per cent and 10 per cent allocation in discretionary quota. Apart from that we don’t have any rule.”

Kanak Vardhan Singh Deo, former Orissa urban development minister, said, “The rule is that only those who apply for the project can be allotted land via Discretionary Quota. So if any such person does not apply what can we do?”

CNN-IBN has also found that many of the judges who were allotted land through the discretionary quota already own ancestral property in Cuttack. Yet the ministers were allotted the land they asked for.

 

Mysore DC indicted for illegally delisting Rs 6k crore land

 

BANGALORE: A major land scam worth nearly Rs 6,000 crore, involving about 2,000 acres at the foothills of Chamundi Hills in Mysore, has been unearthed.

Mysore deputy commissioner P S Vastrad is in the spotlight for illegally delisting in June nearly 2,000 acres of prime government land in favour of the Mysore royal family. The land in question is 1,541 acres in Kurubaralli, 259 acres in Chowdahalli and 173 acres in Alanahalli. The market value of an acre in these areas is between Rs 1 crore and Rs 3 crore.

Some top state BJP leaders and influential religious leaders are said be behind the illegal conversion of the land from ‘B’ kharab to ‘A’ kharab. According to the Karnataka Land Revenue Act, 1964, ‘B’ kharab land is property reserved for a public purpose. Any conversion of this to ‘A’ kharab – making it private property – needs government authorization. But Vastrad passed the order without bringing it to the notice of the government.

“This happened when DV Sadananda Gowda as chief minister held more than 20 portfolios, including revenue. Lack of monitoring in the revenue department enabled the deputy commissioner to change the format,” government sources said. Following complaints against the change in land use, deputy chief minister in charge of revenue K S Eshwarappa ordered a probe by chief secretary S V Ranganath, who has given a report indicting Vastrad of being “guilty of misconduct”.

The land was mentioned as kharab in survey records dating back to 1861. Later, during a resurvey between 1920 and 1930, the same land was shown as ‘B’ kharab.

“It appears the DC executed the order in undue haste. Any decision with respect to such land can only be taken by the government under Section of 86 of the Karnataka Land Revenue Act. The delisting of land from ‘B’ kharab to ‘A’ kharab without considering the original survey records of 1861 is illegal,” the chief secretary said in his report.

Sources in the government said the Mysore royal family had been claiming right over the land after the death of the Mysore Maharaja in 1974, but several orders of the department of personal and administrative reforms clearly state the land belongs to the government. “The heir of the last Maharaja had been raising disputes. Due to this and multiple litigation, unscrupulous elements are trying to falsify records to gain control over this precious land,” they added.

Interestingly, the DC withdrew his June order on August 18 on being indicted. Meanwhile, the Karnataka High Court ordered the status quo.

Chief minister Jagadish Shettar, who wanted to suspend Vastrad, is said to have dropped the idea following pressure from top BJP leaders. The government feels that shunting him out at a time when Dasara preparations are under way would mar the festivities.

“I will urge the CM to convene a meeting and take action against the DC,” Eshwarappa told TOI.

 

DC Vastrad yielded to real estate lobby: MLC

 

Mysore: BJP MLC G Madhusudan on Friday accused Mysore DC P S Vastrad of succumbing to the real estate lobby in a case related to some 2,000-acre land at the foothills of Chamundi Hills. 
He has complained to CM Jagadish Shettar in this regard. The BJP leader has also asked for a stay on the proceedings following the order by Vastrad. 
In his complaint to Shettar, the MLC said: “The land at the foothills is quite precious and costs several thousand crores as per the present market… You are requested to go through the documents and take up investigation into the matter.” In the strongly-worded letter, he has told the CM that “people are alleging that the DC has succumbed to the real estate lobby.” 
Releasing the copies of his petition, and that of related documents to the media on Friday, Madhusudan asked the CM to intervene. According to him, the court of the deputy commissioner has declared it as B-kharab land and has directed the authorities concerned to issue khathas in the name of Srikantadatta Narasimharaaja Wadiyar, the scion of Mysore royal family and other respondents. In 1935 — when Maharaja was ruling the state — the said land was declared as B-kharab, which remained the same all these years. In fact, Maharajas Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar and Jayachamaraja Wadiyar wanted that to be maintained as a green belt to guard the sanctity of the sacred site. “To ensure this, maharaja Jayachamaraja Wadiyar did not make any attempt to register the property in his name till his death,” he contended, adding that he didn’t even go in for partition of the land in Kurburhalli. 
Claiming that it is a public property, the MLC accused the DC of taking arbitrary decisions. “First of all, he can’t review any decisions made in the district magistrate court. Secondly, he has to call public objections or have to seek opinion of public prosecutor before conversion of land from B-kharab (unusable land) to A-kharab, which he has not done.”
“There real estate lobby is behind it to usurp the property which needs to be probed,” the BJP leader said. He, however, was evasive when asked to name those involved. When asked whether district minister S A Ramdas is aware of it, he accused him of being negligent on the issue.
Meanwhile, deputy CM K S Eshwarappa, who also holds the revenue portfolio, said that he has convened a high-level meeting, and directed both the DC and the MLC to attend the same.

 

KIADB de-notification scandal , BMIC – NICE SCANDAL  , MINING SCANDALS and Threats to RTI Applicant

–  PIL Appeal To Honorable Supreme court of India For Writ of Mandamus

 

 Just months back , we have witnessed the collapse of a multi storied building in bellary ,Karnataka & we have witnessed  a fire tragedy in a  multi-storey building in Bangalore,  months ago there was collapse of a huge building under construction in Bangalore , all resulting in loss of human lives. Recently we have seen de-notification scam involving VVIPs . All these are the result of violations of Urban Town Planning Laws , Building bye-laws which  are observed more in breach by the criminals & conniving public servants .  The authorities are behaving like real estate agents of criminals , by-passing norms , framing laws to the tune of criminals . Authorities are not honoring RTI requests & even high ranking IAS officer  repeatedly threatens a commoner  seeking information under RTI ACT .

 

Before embarking on land acquisition for any projects government authorities must plan & assess what are the actual requirement of land for that particular project. After finding out the actual requirement of land , they must  assess the loss of forest area , cost of compensation pay-out , cost of rehabilitation of people , environmental damages & resultant health damages to people in surrounding areas ,it’s resultant losses when the project gets running , if at all the benefits , profits from that project far outweighs the losses ,then only project should be put before the public for their consent. Ministers & IAS officers must not take these decisions all by themselves in a hush – hush manner.

 

Even when a project is downsized , from the previously approved size , the land left over , surplus land must be given back to the original owner on first priority . The project managers must not sell those surplus lands to third parties for a premium .

Even when KIADB ,BDA ,MUDA & other authorities acquire lands from farmers ,for constructing industrial  parks or residential layouts , etc , has framed comprehensive development plans (CDP) for their respective cities , clearly demarcating land usage pattern . However after acquisition of land , the KIADB , BDA , MUDA , etc are selling those very lands to private third parties for different land usage purposes ,completely violating CDP. Are these KIADB , BDA , BBMP , MUDA ,MCC real estate agents of Rich people ?

 

Now , consider NICE – BMIC SCANDAL or MINING Scandals , public servants in responsible positions are accusing each other , there by proving that almost all of them are criminals. In democracy , ministers & IAS officers are public servants , MLAs , MPs are not leaders just public servants  – representative of people. They must represent people’s wishes & must order the IAS & other officers to fulfil the wishes of people as per legal provisions.

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 public servants 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 being followed intoto by public servants. However the recent delhi high court ruling affirming that CJI is under RTI purview & bound to answer RTI request , is noteworthy.

 

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 I 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 work practices 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 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. 

 

BMIC by NICE & land scams  in Karnataka  – an appeal to honourable supreme court of India & H.E.Honourable Governor Of Karnataka

 

When a crime is noticed , it is the duty of the government to investigate who did it ? and to legally prosecute them in court & provide justice . if  thousands of criminals , lakhs of criminals  got together & did the same type of crimes , all of them must be legally prosecuted. Just  for the overwhelming numbers of criminals law of the land cann’t be changed. However  in the Karnataka state , many political bigwigs , rich crooks have done the same crime , LAND GRABBING – illegal possession of government land & illegal constructions over it. Important land records of those government lands , lands belonging to poor are lost in record rooms of civic bodies ( cunningly destroyed by corrupt officials ) Now, their political masters are legalizing the crimes . what a shame to the government of Karnataka ?

 

The  shri.A.T. RAMA SWAMY , (M.L.A) standing committee in the Previous legislative assembly probed  the land grabbings in Karnataka & gave it’s report to the government . However the government in a hurry , is auctioning – off  those government lands without proper publicity  to the auction process , sufficient time for bidder’s expression of interest. In some cases , a pittance is levied as penalty for the illegal occupation to get it legalized. The government is not bothered about legally prosecuting the illegal  occupier  of those lands. In many civic bodies , important property documents belonging to the government  & poor are missing from the record rooms. All these point towards the government intention , to legalise the crimes of  illegal land occupiers who are nothing but their own political  cronies.

 

The recent ordinance by government of Karnataka to regularize land deals is envisaging to legalize the crimes of rich. The illegal land conversions , land encroachments , encroachment of civic amenities made by the rich are being legalized with levying a pittance as penalty in the name of public welfare . Whereas the land worth at today’s market prices are 10’s of thousands of crore it is only wefare of the rich & mighty . IT IS GOING TO BE MOTHER OF ALL SCAMS.  The authorities evict poor tribal people from their ancestral forest area in the name of conservation , evict tribal people from villages in the name of development without proper rehabilitation measures. The government is not giving land rights to slum dwellers , poor , dalits over the land they are dwelling , the government is deaf to appeals of dalits for land rights. However the same government is sympathetic to rich who have encroached land & built huge commercial complexes worth crores violating all norms with total disregard to civic amenity or safety.

THE CLOUT OF LAND MAFIA IN INDIA -the governments daring to by-pass judiciary

An appeal ( PIL ) to the honourable supreme court of India

 

The recent attempts by government of India & other state governments to legalise land grabbings by enacting new land laws in the name of public welfare is farce . while crores of people are without shelter & are living on streets , people in slums , tribal lands are struggling for land rights since decades the governments were mum & deaf. Now , as the rulers themselves & their cronies have built illegal constructions running into crores they are shedding crocodile tears in the name of public welfare. In india, various state governments have enacted ” town municipal / city corporation laws & building laws” , to ensure orderly growth of cities & towns , to ensure the safety of buildings & it’s occupants , to ensure the safety of pedestrians & road users.

 

Numerous educated people , ruling elite – ministers , police , government officials , M.Ps , M.L.As , etc knowing fully well about the laws have illegally built bungalows , commercial complexes , throwing to wind all laws. In their greed they have shown utter contempt towards law. They have encroached dried –up lakes , rivulets , rain flow paths , drainages , foot paths , civic amenity sites. In their building there are violations of- lack of fire safety exits , lack of parking space , encroachment of foot paths , conservancy line , drainages , etc.

 

There is wide spread corruption in the corporation / municipal authorities. For a price officials have converted  CA sites to commercial purposes , authorised deviations / encroachments of public

lands like foot paths , drainages , parking space , set-off , etc. The corporation officials themselves are violating city master plans. Even before authorising the conversions & encroachments of lands , the

corporation officials are not making alternate arrangements. By all these corrupt deeds many of the corporation officilas have become millionaires . however more & more road accidents are taking place , building collapses & fire tragedies are occurring , during heavy rainfalls water is getting  clogged – ALL THESE RESULTING IN LOSS OF HUMAN LIVE & PROPERTIES. In recent days numerous murders have taken place over the real estate issues . THE CRIMINAL LAND GRABBERS MADE DEATH THREATS & FORCED THE PIL APPLICANT IN THE KARNATAKA HIGH COURT ABOUT LAND GRABBINGS IN KORAMANGALA LAYOUT BANGALORE. The government of karnataka instead of protecting the PIL applicant & upholding the law has taken sides with the land grabbers.

 

 

The state governments of karnataka & delhi has got M.L.As & officials who have themselves violated building laws & grabbed govt lands. Now , the two govts are contemplating to bring in laws regularising these land grabbing crimes for a pittance as penalty. All to by-pass judiciary. The governments are least bothered about the lives of poor & only too caring towards the land grabbing criminals.  The same governments have not yet given land rights to poor slum dwellers / dalits , land rights to tribals living in forest since centuries , land rights to poor agricultural labourers, where as it is full of concern towards rich & mighty land grabbers – criminals.  Bottom line – whatever be the magnitude of crime if you are rich & mighty law will be bended to suit you , by bad luck if you are a poor folk you are bound to suffer being on the right side of law also.  Hereby , e-voice  urges requests the honourable supreme court of india , to register this as a PIL , to provide protection to the PIL applicant in bangalore & to take appropriate actions against the GOK & GOD nipping at bud their illegal motives to regularise land grabbings.

 

ILLEGALITIES IN AUCTION OF M/S IDEAL JAWA LTD MYSORE

 

During the auction of above sick industry the land usage was for industrial purpose only. so, people with other commercial objectives were not allowed to participate in the auction. Thereby, the final auctioned amount was very much less than the market value. This has a direct bearing on employees of that industry , lending banks , govt dept , etc who have all put forward their claims for dues from that industry. noW, all of them are getting very much less than what is due from the closed company. A loss of crores of rupees to banks , government , employees has been made by the cunningness of civic bodies.

Now in a backdoor move the M.U.D.A , K.I.A.D.B , M.C.C are moving to give land usage conversion to the new occupier, who is building posh villas & resorts here. Is it right & justified ? should not they conduct auction once again or charge market value to the new owner.

 

LAND MAFIA IN KARNATAKA

 

The land mafia which has links with political leadership & top govt servants in the state, is running business widely in & around bangalore,mysore & other major towns. The authorities like city corporation , B.D.A, M.U.D.A , K.I.A.D.B , etc are denotifying the lands meant for public welfare in favour of land mafia. The authorities have earmarked these lands for public welfare ie parks , schools , hospitals at the planning stage itself for current & future needs of the people. In most cases the land mafia has illegally occupied the lands , built commercial complexes & sold it for crores of rupees.

 

1. the authorities are not demolishing these illegal structures & prosecuting the occupiers.

 

2. In some cases the authorities are denotifying , regularizing those illegal occupations by levying a pittance as penalty which is very much less than the market value.

 

3. In some cases for example a notified site for school is alloted to an educational trust. They build 2 rooms in 25% of the site & state that this is free school meant for weaker sections. After a year or two , they state before the authority that to run this school they need funds. So they are planning to build commercial complexes around the school site & by the rent collected from shops they will run the school. In this manner sites meant for schools , hospitals , temples & other social organisations apply for conversion of land usage & use major portion of the land for commercial purposes.

 

Hereby , e-voice  urges the govt of karnataka & other authorities ,

 

1. to clearly demarcate the govt lands & announce it boldly to the public.

 

2. To clearly demarcate lands meant for public amenities both for current & future usage.

 

3. To clearly demarcate lands required for town planning say 20 years down the line.

 

4. To clearly mention in such plans the purpose it is reserved for ie parks , hospitals , schools , etc.

 

5. To impartially act against illegal occupiers – rich or poor.

 

6. Say while denotifying a land meant for school an alternate land for school must be incorporated in the original plan.

 

7. Before denotification public objections must be called for & considered responsibly.

 

8. After denotification the land must be sold at the market rate not the govt rate.

 

9. In case of land usage conversion also the objections from the public must be called for & considered responsibly.

 

10. After land usage conversion an alternate land must be incorporated in the plan for the original use.

 

11. In case of land usage conversion also the occupier must be charged at the market value.

 

12. To declare annually the property details of all officials with denotifying / land usage conversion authorities together with details of their family member’s properties with provision for public scrutiny, cross checking.

 

13. To ruthlessly prosecute the corrupt officials & ministers.

 

14. To make public the report of past district magistrate mysore mr. T.M. VIJAYA BHASKAR about illegal land dealings in & around mysore. Also the action taken report.

 

ILLEGALITIES IN BANGALORE-MYSORE EXPRESSWAY PROJECT BMIC by NICE

 

Different political parties are trading charges against each other about illegalities in the mysore-bangalore expressway project. Grave mistakes have been committed by the previous state governments. The saving grace is judiciary has taken note of it. The fundamental principle behind land acquisitions by the governments is to use that acquired lands for public welfare. As the govt acquires the land with this noble intentions even the land looser contents himself with compensation at govt rate. Always the govt rate is much below market value. If at all the govt wants to give out that acquired land to a private party for private use or for the use of a selected few, the govt must give prevailing market rate to the land looser. In such cases the govt does not have authority to force the land owner to sell his property.

 

In this mysore-bangalore 4 lane expressway project, following inconsistencies are there,

 

1.   this road is not for free public use, but only for those who pays the toll fees.

 

2.   The luxurious resorts , townships , etc which are to be built alongside this road are not open for free public usage but only for the rich who can afford it.

 

3.   The govt has concluded this deal in a hush-hush manner.

 

4.   Any disputes raised by this project should be addressed to international arbiter at london which a poor land owner or general public can ill-afford.

 

5.   The govt has not paid the prevailing market value to the land loosers.

 

6.   The govt has not given the option to land owners not to sell their property.

 

7.      This whole project is for rich , built by the rich for the rich & not meant for public welfare.

 

The govt must give back the lands to the owners who wants it back & must pay the market value to those willing to sell. As this project is built by wealthy people for wealthy people why cann’t they cough- up market value?

 

CRIMES BY BANGALORE DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY ( B.D.A)

AGAINST A POOR WOWAN

 

The B.D.A flouts it’s own rules & spreads red carpet for big land developers & land grabbers. B.D.A posting is a huge money spinner for corrupt officials. The corrupt B.D.A officials work hand in glove with criminal elements & rowdies. They illegally evict genuine allottees who are poor & without any connections from allotted prime lands & sell-off those prime land to the highest bidder of bribe. The poor fellow is re-alloted lands in backward areas & in some cases left in the lurch.

 

Now , take the following case. Mr. S.D. chandrashekaraiah a poor old man aged around 80 years was allotted with house no.185, kumaraswamy lay-out, first block, bangalore in 1978 vide letter no.

310/267/BDA/ADM/KMRSL(H)/78-79 dt 11/08/1978.

 

The chairman of B.D.A has allotted the built house on lease cum sale basis. The poor old man mr. S.D.chandrashekaraiah complied with all the rules & in accordance with it even deposited 25% of the house cost in B.D.A’S account. However when he went over to his allotted house for residing in it, he found out some rowdy elements were already residing there. He complained about this matter to the legal owner of the house ie B.D.A . the B.D.A officials didn’t take steps to evict the illegal encroachers nor did they make any complaint to the police. His appeals to B.D.A, chief minister of karnataka , etc fell on deaf ears. Hurt by this gross injustice & mounting financial burdens the poor old man died.

 

Subsequently, the poor man’s daughter smt. Nagalakshmi who was also very poor , appealed to the B.D.A authorities once again , to evict illegal encroachers from her father’s allotted house. This time the corrupt B.D.A officials played a different game. They showed her a vacant house, gave her oral instructions to live in that vacant house & told her that they will regularise it in due course. The hapless poor woman took huge loans & repaired the house fit for occupation.  Just before she was to occupy that house , corrupt B.D.A officials once again planted rowdy elements in that house. Once again the poor woman was cheated. She lost her house, on top of it her loan burden mounted.

 

Till date, that poor woman is suffering from these gross injustices of B.D.A . SHAMELESS B.D.A OFFICIALS who take thousands of rupees salary & perks every month, all at the expense of tax-payer has not even cared to rectify the injustice. Thereby, they are violating the poor woman’s fundamental & human rights.

 

Hereby,  e-voice urges  the honourable chief minister of karnataka, honourable lokayuktha for karnataka , honourable chairman national human rights commission , honourable chairman national commission for women & honourable chairman state commission for women karnataka, to take the appropriate action & to speedily provide justice to this poor woman.
