Many public servants are leading luxurious lifestyles , beyond the legal sources of their income. Many public servants are filing false affidavits about their annual income , wealth details to Election Commission of
The tainted public servants are not even providing full , right information to public as per RTI Act, lest the truth come out. Just imagine , even the supreme court of India violated RTI Act – failed to give information to our publication as per RTI Act , lest the truth – skeletons in judiciary comes out.
Some public servants , caught redhanded during luxurious spending , easily says that it is at their political paty's expense or their well wisher's expense. However no entries are found in the account books of said parties to that respect. The law forbids public servants from accepting gifts , hospitality , favours beyond the value of rupees one hundred ( Rs. 100 ) , as it may be a form of bribe.
Hereby , HRW urges the honourable supreme court of

History of Corruption in Indian Judiciary since
1949: Mr. Justice Sinha only Judge impeached; courtesy Good Judges & Constitution Framers: Our Fore-Fathers represented by Constituent Assembly of India framers of Constitution of India then in 1949 (year before Consitution came into existence) impeached Mr. Justice Sinha; finding him "guilty of improper exercise of Judicial functions, the cumulative effect of which was to lower the dignity of his office and undermine the confidence of the public in the administration of justice…" [008.07].
Such/ similar acts/ behaviours by whom-so-ever including Judges is since 1971 is covered as an act of Criminal Contempt of Court [041.05 ]. Not a single Judge is either Impeached or hauled-up for Contempt till 1991.
Peoples' Inner Hope Courts to maintain their Majesty & Dignity will prosecute 1000 Judges in context, who have tarnished & undermined the Fair image of Judiciary.
Let Judges relish Jail for months if not years ; to asses personally the convinences-N-comforts provided even to innocent citizens or persons who were not having Rs. 100 to give as Bail. Then they will be in better position to Transform Jails into Reformation Centres. Jailing corrupt Judges by Judges , we hope will instill confidence of people in Courts & law. Who-is-who of

E(I)nquiry-in-camera or In-House Inquiry was & is contrary to Law . Is ultra vires Article 14 of Constitution of India: " The State shall not deny to any person equality before the law or the equal protection of the laws within the territory of India"
Following Questions / Issues, inter alia , arise
( a ) Enquiry in-camera was held contrary to the observations made by, Constituent Assembly of India in 1949. In its' Impeachment Order had held thus:"While we are alive to the desirability, in the interests of the public, of investigating charges against a Judge in open court, we held the Enquiry in-camera in view of the allegation made in the affidavits and the circumstances of the case. This mode of proceeding should not, however, be regarded as a precedent." [008.07 ].
( b) In the case of similar In-House Inquiry held under the Orders of Chief Justice of India in Jusice V. Ramaswami's case , Justice Ramaswami had held that " Inquiring Committee" as well as " Inquiry" have no basis & force of law. It is reflected in the Report , which was read-out by CJI to Advocates & publicised , submitted by 3 Judges Committee thus" Indeed Justice Ramaswami had made it clear to the Chief Justice that he did not recognise any such Jurisdiction in any body or authority."
(c) It will not be out-of place to mention here that Two of "Three Judges Committee " appointed by CJI in Re. V. Ramaswami's case are alleged to be involved in Judges Plot 4 Plot.[014.00]. It is like Criminal investigating another criminal .
( d ) If so how sure can we be that " 3 Judges Committee " appointed to invetigate " 3 Judges
Queries to Supreme Court , Parliament of India & Central Government In Re. Judges' Mysore Sex Scandal ( a)" Will the Supreme Court Publicise Report of " 3 Judges Committee " ( all & sundry material); morefully to know whether any evidence adduced by many in support of Scam is informed to CJI & Supreme Court ? (b) What is the Guarantee that despite prima facie evidence Judges of Supreme Court which consists of Few corrupt Judges seved in Karnataka are not inclined to take stern action ? (c) Investigation of a Crime comitted by Minister or anyone lies within Executive Domain like the case Justice K.Veeraswami, in this case CBI . Is it not a case of hushing-up & messing-up of " 3 Pillars of Constitution " ?. (d) How long will you try keeping suppressed Crimes of Judges of Supreme Court & High Courts when Union Law Minister Mr. P. Shiva Shankar , on 28th Nov.1987 said " Supreme Court is filled with FERA violators & Bride Burners…" ( AIR 1988 SC 1208 ). When Chief Justice Of India Justice E.S. Venkataramaiaha admits that "in every High Court there are 3-4 Judges who are out every evening to Party in Foreign Embassiies or at Advocates' places…drink…dine…" (1990 Cr LJ 2179 ) [041.09]. (e) 20% of Judges are corrupt , indirectly said Chief Justice of India Mr. Justice S.P. Bharucha , in other words admitted that 80% of Judges of India are not corrupt & are above board to be bribed or influnced ? Then why cases are not filed against 20% of Judges ?
LOSS of Confidence in Judiciary : The Actions & Inactions of Supreme Court trying to suppress crimes of Judges has resulted in We, the People of India losing confidence in Courts & given rise to a Question whether at all People of India's Fundamental & Statutory Rights are safe in present set of Judges & Courts and Laws Governing thereof ?
Conscience of Judiciary Shaken: Supreme Court of
"Police Raj" to "Judges Tyranny": Judges serving all over
Criminal Politicians Vs Criminal Judges : Hats off for the Judgment of Supreme Court striking-down of Parliamentary Act amending Representatives of Peoples Act. Court said Come Clean Mr. Politicians in relation to diclosure of their Criminal , Financial & other such antecedents so as to help electorate of
But then What about Criminal / Corrupt / Judgment-for-Sex Judges ?: The Supreme Court was unanimous in the Judgment of corrupt politicians. Parliament is not unanimous to Bridle Judges or judiciary. Nor is the Supreme Court ready to find ways & means to Tame / Terminate / Jail the Corrupt / criminal / Judgment-for-Sex Judges. Such inactions of Supreme Court or High Court is nothing short of giving leverage to such of them. It looks as though Supreme Court on its own is eroding faith of Public in Judiciary as a whole. Like Termites these Judges are Constitutional-Enemies-Within-India who are bent upon to disseminate corruption among other Good Judges.
AN APPEAL TO HONOURABLE CHIEF MINISTER UTTAR PRADESH
Dear Madam ,
I am writing to express my concern regarding the death of a student at the
I am informed that Mr. Yogesh Kumar Rai, a former student of the Bachelor of Physical Education course at the
I am informed that the report of inquiry held several hospital and university staff responsible for the situation that led to Rai’s death. Since the report was not made public, Mr. Djhananjay Tripathi, another student at the university filed a petition under the Right to Information Act, 2005 requiring a copy of the enquiry report. I am informed that the report was not given to Tripathi even though he took the matter in appeal and further to the Central Information Commission.
I am also informed that the Central Information Commission ordered that the report should be given to the applicant, Mr. Tripathi, which the university failed to comply. Owing to the failure, the concerned officer was ordered by the Central Information Commission to pay fine as compensation to Tripathi. I am also informed that in the meanwhile Tripathi who appeared for two consecutive admission examinations for the master’s programme [M.P.Ed.] at the university was denied admission contrary to Tripathi’s belief of his academic skills and his performance in the examination. I am informed that suspecting foul play Tripathi requested an inquiry into his examination results and it is alleged that in the inquiry it was found that the university was denying admission to Tripathi to seek vengeance against him. I am also informed that the Assistant Registrar of the Central Information Commission has ordered the university to immediately admit Tripathi for the course which he was qualified to join and also asked the university authorities not to victimize any student who exercise his right for information against the university.
I am concerned to know that inspite of all these, the university has denied admission to Tripathi and the reason for the death of Mr. Yogesh Kumar Rai still remains a mystery.
I therefore urge you to immediately inquire into this case and ensure the following:
1. That the report of inquiry conducted into the death of Mr. Yogesh Kumar Rai is provided to Mr. Djhananjay Tripathi in compliance with the orders of the Central Information Commission;
2. That Mr. Djhananjay Tripathi is admitted into the course that he has applied for at the
3. That the university takes immediate action against the corrupt and negligent officers mentioned in the report concerning the death of Mr. Yogesh Kumar Rai and;
4. That the officers responsible for denying admission to Mr. Djhananjay Tripathi are punished.
AN APPEAL TO HONOURABLE CHIEF MINISTER WEST BENGAL
Dear Sir ,
Name of the victim:
Ms. Asha Begum, aged 19 years, daughter of Saral Hossain, residing at Lakshmipur, Rajpara, Rajsahi district, Bangladesh [the victim is currently held in judicial custody at the Lalbagh Prison in Murshidabad district, West Bengal]
1. Officers of the Border Security Force of the ‘G’ Company attached to the 90 Battalion of the Border Security Force stationed at I & II Outpost of the Border Security Force at Kargil village, Murshidabad district, West Bengal
2. The Officer-in-Charge of the Raninagar Police Station, Murshidabad district,
I am writing to you to express my concern regarding the case of Ms. Asha, a victim of rape currently detained at the Lalbagh Prison in Murshidabad in connection with Crime 109/2006 of the Raninagar Police Station.
I am informed that Asha was taken into custody by the Border Security Force (BSF) officers stationed at I & II Outpost of the Border Security Force at Kargil village, Murshidabad district on
I am informed that the BSF officer later raped Asha within hours after she was taken into custody, which was discovered immediately by the superior officers of the BSF from the intelligence branch, who happened to visit the outpost on the same day. I am concerned to know that the victim, though was immediately taken to the Raninagar Police Station was refused to be taken in by the police officers at the station and also refused to be given medical attention. Later the victim had to return to the BSF camp.
The next day when the victim was produced at the police station, the Senior Divisional Police Officer from Domkal Mr. Mohan Banshi Haldar, ordered the victim to be produced at the
I am informed that the victim is not an accused charged with offences under the Foreigners’ Act, 1946 is being kept in judicial custody. I am also informed that the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate has adjourned the case to be taken up on
I am surprised to know that inspite of several complaints against the manner in which the BSF treat suspects and ordinary people in Murshidabad and along the Indo-Bangladesh border, no action whatsoever has been taken against these officers on complaints of abuse of authority or their involvement in criminal activities as it happened in this case.
I therefore urge you to immediately intervene in this case and ensure that the BSF officer who raped Asha is brought to justice. I also request you to take appropriate action so that the dereliction of duty by the police officers at the Raninagar Police Station who refused to record Asha’s complaint is immediately inquired into. I also request you to inquire into the manner in which Dr. S. B. Kanjilal examined the victim and take appropriate action against the doctor if he is found guilty of willful neglect of duty.
Comments on the Model Police Act 2006 circulated by the Police Act Drafting Committee of Ministry of Home Affairs
- By S R Sankaran IAS (Rtd)
Former Secretary, Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India
1. General - Scope of a Police Act
It is to be recognized that the .Police Act 1861 is not the sole or only lawin relation to police functions .The maintenance of public order and the criminal justice system are based on the Indian Penal Code (IPC), Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC), Indian Evidence Act as well as a large number of special legislations including special laws including Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA, now repealed ) or Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (in which many of the provisions of repealed POTA have been incorporated ) or Control of Organized Crimes Act (COCA) as in Maharashtra or Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities ) Act, apart from the provisions of the Indian Constitution itself .In addition to the laws, there are Police Regulations (e.g. PRB in West Bengal) and Police Manuals (e.g. Tamil Nadu) in every state laying down clear guidelines and instructions in regard to the exercise of police powers and duties .The Police Act 1861 is no doubt 150 years old ;but to trace the reason for all the inadequacies and shortcomings in policing to the Police Act 1861 merely on the ground of its antiquity will be an incorrect understanding of policing in a democratic society .In fact, the1861 Act by itself does not stand in the way of proper and efficient functioning of police as a humane institution at the service of the people.
2. Model Police Act 2006 – Comments on Approach and Scope
The Model Police Act seeks to cover the entire field of police administration, much of which cannot and need not be incorporated in a statute by Parliament . There are too many details of administration. Some of the sections of this nature which are illustrative of this are amenities in police stations (Section 12(5)), non-statutory activities such as technical and support services (Section 17), state police academies (Section 18),organization of research (Section 19 )qualification for recruitment (Section 25), service conditions (Section 26) ),financial management ( Section56), standardisation of forensic aids (8.15) training policy, disciplinary actions, welfare and grievance redressal or working hours .
These are not normally laid down instatutes .Apart from the unnecessary need for making a statute of Parliament or State legislature for a minor issues such as imposing punishment on police personnel (or for that matter any government servant ), inclusion of such details in an Act will make it operationally difficult .Any change or modification will necessitate an amendment of the law by Parliament or State legislature .What should be part of a manual of administrative instructions have been brought into the law .The Act often reads like an office memorandum of the Government !
The Act should be confined to major issues and concepts of policy such as rule of law, statutory duties, functions and responsibilities or accountability . . Even here, some of the details such as composition of a Committee can be best left to Rules. In trying to achieve autonomy in the functioning of police, the Act seeks to provide privileged position to the police personnel (specially the Director General of Police), without adequate accountability and mechanism for redressal against arbitrary actions . There are, no doubt, some institutional mechanisms that are envisaged but they are all, if fully analysed, only advisory in nature. The Act as worded will only result in furthering the authoritarian nature of policing .
The functioning of the police must be looked at from the point of view of the people and not just from the point of view of the government or the police .The emphasis must be on police as service with duties and accountability on the part of the police; not more power and authority. As the police is the most visible symbol of State authority and is clothed with wide ranging powers to use force, including even causing of death in relation to life and liberty of citizens, police functioning naturally becomes central to human rights. The crucial fact is that the police is the legally sanctioned coercive arm of the Government and has the authority to interfere with the life and liberty of people. This distinguishes police from other agencies of the State and it is this feature that requires proximate accountability not only to its own departmental hierarchy but non police authorities (as in
