In this context it is quite pertinent to note that In India with money power , right
political connections any crime can be done & be scot free . In India Legal system is
for Sale , Judicial orders can be manipulated. The conict in a case may be an
innocent without recourse to right connections & legal aid. So , one cann!t be "##$
sure whether the death conict has actually committed the crime. %rison sentence
can be reersed , if &udgement is found faulty but what if death sentence is carried
out on an innocent person ' J()*+ is not god.

, criminal is not born, but made by social circumstances. -or the crime
scenario in India , eery citi.en of India is indirectly responsible.
/ur present inefficient, corrupt legal system , is wholly dependent on
eidences which a rich criminal can create or destroy at his sweet
will. %olice forcibly ta0e confessions from the accussed , by applying
1rd degree torture methods. Some of the &udges are literally auctioning
2 &udicial orders2 for bribe. )ue to all these reasons one cann3t be
"##$ sure about one criminal3s coniction. In such cases, capital
punishment will be unfair & inhuman. It must be made mandatory, in all
death penalty cases that polygraph, lie detector tests, etc must be
conducted on 2 death conicts 2 , to 0now whether they are innocent or
guilty inspite of hostile eidences. -undamentally, the capital
punishment has failed
as a deterrent.

)eath penalty is the ultimate . cruel , inhuman and degrading
punishment. It iolates the right to life ,rticle " of uniersal
declaration of human rights. It is irreocable , prone to &udicial
errors and can be inflicted on innocents. It has neer been shown to
deter crime more effectiely than other punishments. In most of the
countries including india , &udicial system is ineffectie ,
inefficient to prosecute impartially both poor & rich criminals. Those
condemned to death penalty mostly come from poor bac0ground who are
unable to afford wise & articulate ,docates who can efficiently argue
their case. ,gainst these poor accussed , the criminal nexus of
police;criminal;bureaucrat builds up fa0e eidences , extracts forced
confessions by 1rd degree torture. 7ost of death conicts world oer

The &udicial system which depends on technical facts li0e eidences
lac0s sense to figure out truth out of fa0e eidences , also as &udges
are human beings they are prone to err. ,dd to this corruption in

democracy li0e (.S., with relatiely efficient &udicial system itself
hundreds of cases of death conicts were found to be wrong , conicts
were found to be innocents upon reiew & were let free. :here as in
india , the accussed lac0s the wherewithal to argue his case in the

8orruption, Immunity, 8ontempt &
9ight to Information
The course of &ustice is often pererted by corruption within the &udiciary and
indeed within the entire system of administration of &ustice. This is
exacerbated by the total lac0 of accountability of the higher &udiciary including
the lac0 of any effectie disciplinary mechanism, the self acquired protection
from een being inestigated for criminal offences, the irtual immunity from
public criticism due to the law of contempt, and finally the immunity from
public scrutiny by another &udicially created insulation from the 9ight to
Information ,ct.
,nti;poor 4ias
The &udicial system is increasingly used by the ruling establishment for pushing
through neo liberal policies by which resources such as land, water and public
spaces left with the poor and being increasingly appropriated by the rich and
the powerful. This elitist and anti poor bias ma0es the &udicial system an
instrument for protecting and furthering the interest of the rich and powerful,
both Indian and foreign. This section will Bwatch! the &udges and expose their
biases and any corrupt and arbitrary practices. They must see that the people
are them and their &udgments carefully.
Judge :atch will contain information < analysis regarding any misconduct by a &udge
as well as anything showing the anti;poor bias of a &udge.
The campaign welcomes well researched information concerning &udges from any
court. 6oweer, we cannot ensure that eery dossier sent will be uploaded on this
site or made public. ,ll submissions must be accompanied by the releant<required
documents that may proide eidence in support of any allegations<obserations
made against any &udge or &udicial officer.

This charge sheet was prepared by the 8ommittee on Judicial ,ccountability in

signed by @M 7%s of 9a&ya Sabha. 6oweer, before it could get the signature of
the requisite number of M# 7%s of 9a&ya Sabha, Justice %unchhi was appointed
8hief Justice of India. ,fter this, it became irtually impossible to get the
5otice of 7otion signed by any 7%s. 8onsequently, 5otice of 7otion could not
be presented to the Spea0er. The imp lesson of this exercise was that it is ery
difficult to get the 7%s sign the impeachment motion unless three conditions
are satisfied. -irstly, the charges must be ery seriousN secondly they must be
proable by documentary eidence which is annexed to the 5otice of 7otion
and finally, the charges must hae been gien substantial publicity in the
In the absence of all the three conditions been satisfied, 7%s are afraid and
reluctant to sign a charge sheet against a sitting &udge. It is normally
exceedingly difficult to get documentary eidence to proe charge against
sitting &udge, particularly in the absence of a statutory inestigation by an
agency haing powers of inestigation. 7oreoer, the bul0 of the main stream
media is afraid to publicise charges against the sitting &udge for fear of
contempt. In 9amaswami!s case, the aboe three conditions were satisfied.
)ocumentary eidence was aailable against 9amaswami because of the report
of the ,ccountant *eneral who audited the purchases made by 9amaswami as
8hief Justice of %un&ab and 6aryana 6igh 8ourt. This is why, impeachment of
&udges, howeer corrupt they might be, is not a practical remedy in discipling

Judge :atch on Justice Jagdish 4halla
This is the case where the documentary eidence was aailable to show that the
&udge has purchased the property worth crores in few la0hs in the name of his wife
from well;0nown criminal who hae illegally grabbed the land. There were inquiry
reports of the ,dditional )istrict 7agistrate and Superintendent of %olice which
attested to these facts. 6oweer, despite this documentary eidence being brought to
the notice of the then 8hief Justice of India, he neither ordered an independent
inestigation nor did he allow the 8ommittee on Judicial ,ccountability to get a
regular -I9 registered, so that a normal police inestigation could hae ta0en place.
This was despite the fact that under the in;house procedure, supposedly adopted by
the Supreme 8ourt of India in "DDD for inestigating charges against the &udges, at
least an in;house committee of &udges could hae formed to inestigate the charges
against Justice 4halla. 6oweer instead of doing that, the then 8hief Justice =.>.
Sabbarwal recommended Justice 4halla to be the 8hief Justice of >erala 6igh 8ourt.
6is appointment as 8hief Justice was stopped only because of the complaint made by
the 8ommittee on Judicial ,ccountability to the %resident of India, who sent the
matter bac0 to reconsideration to the Supreme 8ourt collegium, which thereafter
could not reiterate its recommendation because of the opposition of one of the
&udges of the collegium, Justice 4.5.,ggarwal. 6oweer, thereafter Justice 4halla has
been transferred as a &udge of 8hattisgarh 6igh 8ourt where he has been appointed as
acting 8hief Justice by the notification of Law 7inistry. This was despite of the
ob&ection of the 8ommittee on Judicial ,ccountability, that a &udge, who was not
found suitable as 8hief Justice of >erala, cannot be appointed as ,cting 8hief Justice
of another 6igh 8ourt.
The case of Justice 4halla demonstrates the hollowness of the so;called in;house
procedure supposedly adopted by the Supreme 8ourt for inestigating charges against
&udges. It also demonstrates the pernicious impact of the ?eraswami &udgement which
preents any police inestigation against a &udge without the prior permission of the
8hief Justice of India. The brotherhood among the &udges and the fear among &udges
that any criminal inestigation against the sitting &udge would tarnish the image of
Indian Judiciary has let to a situation whereby not a single sitting &udge has been
sub&ected to criminal inestigation in the "C years since the ?eeraswamy &udgement.

Judge :atch on Justice =.>.Sabharwal
-ormer 8JI, Justice =.>.Sabharwal set in motion the process of sealing of properties in
designated residential areas of )elhi which were being used for commercial purposes.
This sealing went on relentlessly under the continuous superision of 8hief Justice
Sabharwal!s bench, monitored and directed by a 8ourt appointed monitoring
committee. :hen the goernment came up with a new master plan of )elhi @#@"
which allowed mixed use and commercial actiity in many of the areas which were
designated as residential, Justice Sabharwal orders on the sealing continued.
Some of the facts which were not publicly 0nown was that his two sons, 8hetan and
5itin had entered into partnerships with big 7all and 8ommercial complex deelopers
and had become big 8ommercial complex deelopers themseles during that time. It
was clear that these orders were giing direct benefit to his sons! business. 6is orders
are against the principles of natural &ustice, which say that no &udge can hear a case
in which he is personally interested. There was a serious conflict of interest in this
case which renders his orders a nullity. It is in fact arguable that his dealing with this
case in such circumstances inoles an offence under the %reention of 8orruption
,t the same time, it was also found that seeral plots were allotted to the 8ompanies
or relaties of Justice Sabharwal and which needs to be inestigated to see if undue
faour was shown to them and if so whether there was any quid pro quo in terms of
&udicial orders.
The facts thrown up in this case hae ery disturbing implications about the integrity
of our &udiciary in the highest places.

-The Supreme 8ourt collegium headed by 8hief Justice > * 4ala0rishnan and including
Justice S.6. >apadia, Justice Tarun 8hatter&ee and Justice 9.?. 9aeendran had
recommended in ,ugust @##D, Justice #.6. 6inakaran, the 8hief Justice of >arnata0a
6igh 8ourt, for eleation to the Supreme 8ourt. The recommendations came along
with the names of four other Judges for eleation to the ,pex court namely, Justice
,> %atnaya0 O8hief Justice of 7adhya %radesh 6igh 8ourtP, Justice Tirath Singh
Tha0ur, O8hief Justice of %un&ab and 6aryana 6igh 8ourtP, Justice SS 5i&&ar O8hief
Justice of 8alcutta 6igh 8ourtP and Justice >S 9adha0rishna O 8hief Justice of *u&arat
6igh 8ourtP. :hile the dec0s were cleared for the eleation of the latter four Judges,
iimmediately after the news of Justice )ina0aran!s proposed appointment became
0nown, a group of highly respected and responsible lawyers from 8hennai called the
-orum for Judicial ,ccountability sent a series of representations to the 8ollegium
and the goernment detailing seeral ery damaging allegations against him. These
included, acquiring more than 1M# acres of agricultural land and encroaching on
another more than hundred acres of public landN acquiring properties benami and far
beyond his 0nown sources of incomeN hearing and deciding cases of his friends etc. ,ll
the allegations were bac0ed by unimpeachable documentary eidence.
Though the 8hief Justice of India, continued to bac0 him, he ordered an inquiry into
the allegation regarding his agricultural land by the )istrict 7agistrate, who
confirmed the allegations including his encroachment of public land. Thereafter
Justice )ina0aran tried to destroy eidence and threatened the reenue officials who
went to stop this destruction of eidence. ,ll this came to be widely reported in the
media. ,n embarrassed %7/ forced a reluctant Law 7inister 7oily to return the
recommendation to the collegium for reconsideration. The collegium did not
withdraw the recommendation, but merely put it on hold. 5o Hin house inquiryJ was
ordered either.
7eanwhile people questioned how )ina0aran could continue as 8hief Justice of
>arnata0a in the light of such serious offences that he had committed. There was also
the demand that -I9s should be registered and the offences that he had committed be
inestigated. The 8hief Justice of India howeer did not gie permission for
registering any -I9 against Justice )ina0aran. This left no option but to initiate
impeachment proceedings against him. The -orum for Judicial ,ccountability
prepared the impeachment motion which was sent to all the political parties by a
campaign for signatures. +entually CM 7%s of the 9a&ya Sabha, belonging to many
political parties except the 8ongress party signed the impeachment motion and
presented it to the ?ice %resident. The motion was soon admitted by the ?ice
%resident forcing Justice )ina0aran to stop discharging &udicial functions.
The procedure laid down by the Judges Inquiry ,ct for proceeding with an
impeachment motion is that the ?ice %resident appoints an enquiry committee
consisting of a sitting &udge of the Supreme 8ourt, a 8hief Justice of a 6igh 8ourt and
a &urist to enquire into the charges against him. /nly if the enquiry committee finds
him guilty does the matter proceed further for a oting in the two houses of
%arliament. The motion for his remoal has to be then passed by a two third ma&ority
in each house. /nly then can he be remoed. Though there is no requirement under
the Judges Inquiry ,ct for the ?ice %resident to consult the 8hief Justice in the choice
of members of the enquiry committee, he consulted the 8hief Justice, who
recommended two &udges of the Supreme 8ourt and two 8hief Justices of the 6igh
8ourt. 4ased on the 8hief Justice!s adice, the ?ice %resident has appointed an
inquiry committee comprising of Justice ?.S. Sirupur0ar of the Supreme 8ourt, 8hief
Justice ,.9. )ae of the ,.%. 6igh 8ourt and Shri %.%. 9ao as the &urist.
The 8ampaign for Judicial ,ccountability and 9eform as well as the -orum for Judicial
,ccountability hae howeer written to the ?.%. pointing out that Justice Sirupur0ar
has not only been a close friend and colleague of Justice )ina0aran, but he has also
pre&udged the issue, telling seeral responsible lawyers that he 0nows Justice
)ina0aran well and that he is an independently wealthy and honourable man.
7oreoer, Shri %.%. 9ao had been formally consulted by Justice )ina0aran on how he
should deal with these charges and that he had adised him on the matter. In these
circumstances, they would not be seen to be impartial and therefore should not sit as
&udges on this inquiry committee to aoid damage to the credibility of the inquiry and
further controersy. 6oweer till the date of writing they hae not yet recused

This charge sheet was prepared by the 8ommittee on Judicial ,ccountability in "DDG,
when Justice %unchhi was a &udge of the Supreme 8ourt of India. It was signed by @M
7%s of 9a&ya Sabha. 6oweer, before it could get the signature of the requisite
number of M# 7%s of 9a&ya Sabha, Justice %unchhi was appointed 8hief Justice of
India. ,fter this, it became irtually impossible to get the 5otice of 7otion signed by
any 7%s. 8onsequently, 5otice of 7otion could not be presented to the Spea0er. The
imp lesson of this exercise was that it is ery difficult to get the 7%s sign the
impeachment motion unless three conditions are satisfied. -irstly, the charges must
be ery seriousN secondly they must be proable by documentary eidence which is
annexed to the 5otice of 7otion and finally, the charges must hae been gien
substantial publicity in the media.
In the absence of all the three conditions been satisfied, 7%s are afraid and reluctant
to sign a charge sheet against a sitting &udge. It is normally exceedingly difficult to
get documentary eidence to proe charge against sitting &udge, particularly in the
absence of a statutory inestigation by an agency haing powers of inestigation.
7oreoer, the bul0 of the main stream media is afraid to publicise charges against the
sitting &udge for fear of contempt. In 9amaswami!s case, the aboe three conditions
were satisfied. )ocumentary eidence was aailable against 9amaswami because of
the report of the ,ccountant *eneral who audited the purchases made by 9amaswami
as 8hief Justice of %un&ab and 6aryana 6igh 8ourt. This is why, impeachment of
&udges, howeer corrupt they might be, is not a practical remedy in discipling them.

matter to the Supreme 8ourt for deciding certain questions of law. The Supreme
8ourt while deciding the case against the delinquent Judge laid down strict guidelines
to protect the independence of Judiciary according to which no -.I.9. can be
registered against a Judge or 8hief Justice of the 6igh 8ourt, or a Judge of the
Supreme 8ourt without the sanction of the 8hief Justice of India in the matter. It was
held that the Supreme 8ourt is not a court of limited &urisdiction of only dispute
settling, and that the court has been a law ma0er and it is the courts responsibility
and duty to apply the existing law in a form more conducie to the independence of
the &udiciary. It was also said that any complaint against a Judge and its inestigation

Values and )ttitude towards the poor
,fter independence, the concept of social &ustice was introduced and the

with the interention of &udiciary, the labour law was moing in a progressie

right from the +xpress 5ewspaper!s case.Imore

This debate is quite crucial, which is reminiscent of what happened with
&udiciary during the period when India was trying to abolish Samindari system
and introduce land reforms. :hile reflecting on the &udiciary and its impact on

HANG RAPIST CORRUPT JUDGES!o"#alit/ha!g$apist$co%pt$&%#ges

Nothing but the truth
By Indira Jaising
A midst the rising din of the demand for death penalty for rapists comes the news that three
judges of the Karnataka High Court have been involved in what has come to be described as a
'sex scandal' on the outskirts of Mysore at a place called oost esorts!
"ur attention is now directed to those who dispense justice rather than those who knock at the
doors of justice! #n both cases$ we are talking about the use and abuse of women % those who
are victims of sexual abuse$ and those who are used as sexual objects$ willingly or unwillingly!
After the reports in local newspapers that three high court judges were found with women at a
resort$ there was the usual crop of denials! Although the Mysore police were called in to settle a
brawl$ on being told that the persons in &uestion were judges they said that they heard no evil
and saw no evil!
And everyone thought the matter ended there!
Attempts to get the names of the judges or of the women in &uestion drew a blank! 'he bar
association also drew a blank as most people said$ ()on't &uote me* but*(
"n +ovember ,-$ the .angalore edition of 'he 'imes of #ndia published a front/page story
giving the names and photographs of the three judges and confirming that the #ntelligence
.ureau had done an investigation and come to the conclusion that the incident had indeed
occurred! 'here were still no details of the incident$ though it was stated that the report has been
given to the chief justice of #ndia!
'here were reports on the same day that the Karnataka High Court chief justice had sought the
transfer of the three judges to 0atna$ 1ammu and Kashmir and 2uwahati! Apparently$ the chief
justice has agreed to this re&uest and the transfer orders have been issued!
'hen came the news that the chief justice of #ndia has set up a committee of in&uiry under the
'in/house' procedure consisting of the chief justice of the Andhra 0radesh High Court$ the chief
justice of the Madras High Court and the chief justice of the 0atna High Court!
'here were still no details in the press about the actual incident and the entire episode continued
to be referred to as a 'sex scandal'!
3hat is interesting about these reports is not what they reveal$ but what they conceal! #t is a
conspiracy of silence! #f the information is now available to the chief justice of #ndia$ why is it
not being made public4 )o we$ the public$ not have the right to information4 #ronically$ the
morning newspapers brought the news that the 5reedom of #nformation Act has been passed!
3hat are the legitimate limits of the right to freedom of information and the re&uirement of
keeping information a secret4 'his episode would make an interesting case study!
3hat exactly is at stake here4 'here is much that should concern the nation about the incident!
'his is not a case about the private morality of the judges$ be that as it may$ but about the abuse
of office that they hold! 3hat has not been made known is that the three women in &uestion are
women lawyers practising in their courts!
3hat is at stake here is the pollution of the stream of justice at its very source! 'here must be
countless cases in which these women appeared before these very judges day in and day out of
their routine practice! Can one honestly say that in such a situation justice is being done (without
fear or favour(4 1udges swear on oath of allegiance to (bear true faith( to the Constitution and do
justice (without fear or favour(! How well have these judges honoured this oath4
3hat is at stake here is the cynical use of women as sexual commodities! 'he usual justifications
have already begun making the rounds! #f the women have not complained$ what objection can
anyone else have$ it is asked! 3hat is lost sight of is the fact that the judges are in a position of
dominance vis/6/vis the women$ in a position to do favours that pertain to their office!
3hat is at stake here is the cynical use of public office$ the seat of justice$ for personal petty
gain! #t is irrelevant whether the women consented or not! 'he usual blame game will now begin
% blaming the victim rather than the perpetrator7 the usual loose talk about the character of the
woman in &uestion7 the usual attempt to cover up by diverting attention from the actual incident
to the motives of those who brought the incident to light!
3hat is at stake here is the perception of women as sexual commodities by those who are
responsible for sitting in judgment over cases brought for and on behalf of women!
'he issues at stake here concern one half of #ndians! 3ith what faith can #ndian women approach
the courts demanding the right to e&uality$ the right to be free from sexual harassment or rape
and the right to live with dignity$ if the persecution of judges who sit in judgment over them is
#n the circumstances$ the suggested solution is worse than the offence % to transfer them to
0atna$ 2uwahati and 1ammu and Kashmir! 3hy these particular cities4 Are they not an integral
part of the country$ or are they mere islands within the country that are considered 'punishment
postings' where people are sent a la 'crossing Kala 0ani' of the old days4 'o the credit of the
2uwahati .ar Association$ it protested against the proposed transfer!
'he only decent thing to do is for the chief justice of #ndia to disclose full details of the incident
so that rumour/mongering comes to an end! 'his would be in the best interest of the judiciary
As things stand$ the rumours are making the rounds that there were more than three judges
involved$ that the women were professional call girls$ many of which are baseless! 3e$ the
people$ have the right to know! 'he conspiracy of silence must be broken!
'he judges in &uestion must neither be assigned any judicial functions pending an in&uiry nor be
transferred to sit in judgment over others! 'wo of the judges are stated to be additional judges!
'hey must not be confirmed! #f there is prima facie evidence against the one remaining judge$ the
chief justice must recommend his impeachment!
#t is time for all concerned bar associations$ bar councils and other male/dominated bodies of
legal professionals to act and ensure that there is no cover/up! 'here is little point in showing
sympathy to women in judgments and in seminar rooms$ or in recommending the death penalty
for rape if we cannot deal with the men who dispense justice!
'here are contempt of court petitions pending in the Karnataka High Court against some of the
publications for disclosing details of the incident! Civil society and women's organisations must
demand that justice is now done when it comes to the judges themselves!
'he law of contempt can offer no solution to the crisis of credibility in the judiciary that this
incident has thrown up! "ne positive aspect of the incident is that it is only after the chief justice
of the high court issued a public notice inviting information that he received 8- representations$
which led to the discovery of the truth!
9et the truth now be made public!

/ajasthan judge is indicted for see*ing sexual favours

Chief 1ustice of #ndia 2 . 0attanaik retires tonight and he doesn<t have much to write home
on the unprecedented drive he launched to enforce judicial accountability!
After the 00=C scam fiasco$ reported in 'he #ndian Hxpress today$ comes the case of the
ajasthan judge who has been indicted in a sex scandal and yet has escaped action%pending
another in&uiry!
"n )ecember ?I$ a three/judge committee set up by 0attanaik confirmed the JJinvolvement<< of
1ustice Arun Madan of the ajasthan High Court in a proposition to a woman doctor to have sex
with him in exchange for a judicial favour!
'he committee$ headed by the Chief 1ustice of the 0unjab and Haryana High Court 1ustice . K
oy$ submitted its report to 0attanaik$ indicting Madan on a complaint made from 1odhpur by
woman concerned$ =unita Malviya!
.ut 0attanaik has not announced any action against Madan! 3hen contacted by 'he #ndian
Hxpress$ 0attanaik confirmed that the committee had indicted Madan and his JJbad reputation<<
seeking sexual favours in return for judicial ones!
However$ 0attanaik said that no action was being taken since the committee had also mentioned
allegations of corruption against Madan! And so he had ordered a further in&uiry by the same
committee into the corruption charges!
3hen asked what he did with the indictment of Madan in the sex scandal$ 0attanaik said$ JJ'hat
is on hold because # could not have taken piecemeal action against him*!# am praying to 2od
that the final report will give some tangible material to take action!<<
Highly placed sources told 'he #ndian Hxpress that when the committee recorded statements last
week in 1odhpur of about ,- persons over four days$ it also came to know of several allegations
of corruption against Madan and another judge of the same high court! 'he committee put these
on record as well!
0attanaik said that when he summoned Madan to +ew )elhi last week$ he did not raise the sex
scandal issue and instead limited himself to saying that he was ordering a further in&uiry into
corruption allegations!
#n effect$ 0attanaik has now passed the ajasthan buck to his successor 1ustice K + Khare!
'he gist of Malviya<s complaint is that Madan made a sexual proposition to her in "ctober
through a deputy registrar of the high court$ 2ovind Kalwani$ who said that the judge would help
her$ in turn$ get out of a criminal case booked against her!
3ith this$ 0attanaik<s much/touted in/house judicial accountability seems to have hit a wall! 'he
first committee<s report into the 00=C scam exonerated one judge despite evidence and let two
others off with a mere slap on the wrist! 'he third committee is now busy probing the
of judges in the Mysore sex scam!

=iddharth Karadarajan

.ehind every man like =!0!=! athore who abuses his authority stand the generals and
footsoldiers who help and support him! 3e need to take them all down!
=!0!=! athore$ the criminal former top cop of Haryana$ may appear alone today but we must
never forget that he was able to get away with the sexual molestation of a young child and the
illegal harassment of her family for ?@ years because he had hundreds of men who supported
him in his effort to evade justice!
'he fact that these men L fellow police officers$ bureaucrats$ politicians$ lawyers$ judges$ school
administrators L were willing to bend the system to accommodate a man accused of molesting a
minor speaks volumes for the moral impoverishment of our establishment and country! )ecent
societies shun those involved in sexual offences against children! Hven criminals jailed for
Mordinary' crimes like murder treat those serving time for molesting children as beyond the pale!
.ut in #ndia$ men like athore have their uses for their masters$ so the system circles its wagons
and protects them!
'he C.#'s appeal may lead to the enhancement of athore's sentence and perhaps even the
slapping of abetment to suicide charges$ since his young victim killed herself to put an end to the
criminal intimidation her family was being subjected to by athore and his men! .ut the
rot which the case has exposed will not be remedied unless sustained public pressure is put on
0rime Minister Manmohan =ingh and :nion Home Minister 0! Chidambaram$ two men who
it in their power to push for simple remedies in the way the #ndian law enforcement and justice
delivery system works!
5irst$ abolish the need for official$ i!e! political sanction to prosecute bureaucrats$ policemen and
security forces personnel when they are accused of committing crimes! 'he original intent
this built/in stay/out/of/jail card was to protect state functionaries from acts done in the course of
discharging their duties in good faith! =omewhere along the line$ this has come to mean
protecting our custodians of law and order when they murder innocent civilians Beg! the
0anchalthan case in Kashmir where the trial of army men indicted by the C.# for murdering five
villagers in 8--- still cannot take place because the Central government will not grant
permissionC$ or assault or molest women and children! +o civilised$ democratic society grants
such impunity! #t is disgusting to see former officials and bureaucrats from Haryana saying how
they had wanted athore prosecuted but were prevented from doing so because of pressure!
=uch officials should either be made formally to testify in a criminal case against the politicians
who so pressured them or they should themselves be hauled up for perverting the course of
=econd$ stop talking about how making the police and army answerable to the law will somehow
demoralise their morale! )oes anybody care about the morale of ordinary citiNens any more4 "r
the morale of upright police and army officers$ who do not think it is right for their colleagues to
able to get away with criminal acts4
'hird$ bring an end to the cosy relationship between the police and politicians! athore was
protected by four chief ministers of Haryana! He served them and they served him by ensuring
his unfettered rise! #t is absurd that the #ndian 0olice is still governed by a colonial/era Act dating
back to ?G>?! A number of commissions have made recommendations for reforming the police
over the years7 but no government or political party wants to give up its ability to use and misuse
the police for their own benefit
5ourth$ ensure that police officers who abuse their authority and engage in mala fide
prosecutions are dismissed from service and sentenced to jail for a long period of time! Mr!
Chidambaram should use the considerable resources at his command to find out who were the
policemen involved in filing ?? bogus cases against the teenaged brother of the young girl
athore molested! He should then make sure criminal proceedings are initiated against all of
them! 'he message must go out to every policeman in the country; #f you abuse the law at the
behest of a superior$ you will suffer legal conse&uences!
5ifth$ ensure that criminal charges against law enforcement personnel are fast/tracked as a
matter of routine so that a powerful defendant is not able to use his position to delay proceedings
the way athore did for years on end! 'he destruction or disappearance of material evidence in
such cases must be treated as a grave offence with strict criminal liability imposed on the
individual responsible for breaking the chain of custody!
=ixth$ empower the +ational Human ights Commission with teeth so that police departments
and state governments cannot brush aside their orders as happened in the athore case! 'his
would also re&uire appointing to the +HC women and men who have a proven record of
defending human rights in their professional life$ something that is done today only in the
'he attitude of the Manmohan =ingh government to this commission and others like the +ational
Commission for 3omen B+C3C and +ational Commission for Minorities is shocking!
are not filled for months on end!
=eventh$ ensure the early enactment of pending legislation broadening the ambit of sexual
crimes$ including sexual crimes against children! .etween rape$ defined as forced penetrative
sex$ and the vague$ Kictorian/era crime of Moutraging the modesty of a woman'$ the #ndian 0enal
Code recognises no other form of sexual violence! As a result$ all forms of sexual molestation
and assault short of rape attract fairly lenient punishment$ of the kind athore got! #n his case$ the
judge did not even hand down the maximum sentence$ citing concerns for the criminal's age!
=adly$ he did not take into account the age of the victim and neither does the #0C$ which fails to
distinguish between Moutraging the modesty' of an adult woman and a young child!
A draft law changing these provisions and bringing #ndia into line with the rest of the modern
world has been pending with the +C3 and 9aw Ministry for years! 0erhaps the government may
now be shamed into pushing it through 0arliament at the earliest!
Highth$ take steps to introduce a system of protection of witnesses and complainants! 'he fate
that the family of athore's young victim had to endure is testament to the fact that people who
seek justice in #ndia do so at their own peril!
+inth$ ensure that robust interrogation techni&ues like narco/analysis$ which are routinely used
against other alleged criminals$ are also employed against police officers accused of crimes!
'enth$ the media and the higher judiciary must also turn the light inward and ask themselves
whether they were also derelict in their duty! 'he athore case did not attract the kind of
media attention it deserved$ nor do other cases involving serving police officers accused of
crimes against women$ workers$ peasants and minorities! As for the upper courts$ their record is
too patchy to inspire confidence! #t was$ after all$ the high court which chose to disregard the
C.#'s re&uest for including abetment to suicide charges!

%a7i& )ssasination I Dnanswered +uestions
%a7i& >andhi assasination I lea&es many unanswered +uestions I Dnsol&ed puJJles.
For whom did %a7i& >andhi got assisinated @ Sudhangan raised &arious +uestions
which didnKt get answers till 3994. $ere are those +uestions that are unanswered"
:2 On 3: -,ay-:44: %a7i& gandhi started from 6elhi for election campaign and
reached (hennai through the route Orissa and )ndra #radesh. $ow did he
accepted that midnight meeting at Sriperambuthur which was not in the agenda of
'amil!adu (ongress committe. @
32 Is there any plan made somewhere to bring %a7i& >andhi to Sriperambathur
some how @
=2 'he Security official ,r O.#.Sagar was there with %a7i& >andhi when he
campaigned at 1hubaneshwar and Vishakapattinam. 1ut he didnt come to chennai
along with %a7i&. hy @
/2 1ulgarian tele&ision 7ournalists came along with %a7i& during his &isits to record
his campaigns. 'hey were with %a7i& in Orissa and )ndha #redesh but didnt come
for the neBt meeting. 'hey stayed in a luBary hotel at Vishakapatinam along with
their special flight pilot. In that case why did they came @
52 hen %a7i& was about to startF there was a problem in the flight. So he went
back to circuit house from the airport. )fter the problem in flight got fiBedF the
chief minister of )ndha #radesh ,r.Vi7aya1haskar %eddy informed %a7i& to get
back to airport and %a7i& went to airport. 6uring this time the two 1ulgerian
7ournalists took the security official Sagar along in their car and arri&ed at airport
late. So the security official could not go along with %a7i& gandhi. hy did such an
eBperienced security official was made not to tra&el with %a7i& @
.2 'he security official of %a7i& at chennai #.(.>upta was waiting at chennai
airport for %a7i&. #.(.>upts is suppose to get the gun from Sagar who was
eBpected along with %a7i&. Since Sagar has not come along with %a7i&F #.(.>upta
was made to go with %a7i& without gun. Is there any intenton behind this @
82 hen %a7i& started from ,eenambakkamF two ladies claiming as 7ournalists got
inside his car at %ama&aram. 6id their identities &erified @ hy did the special
in&estigation branch didnt en+uire on them @
<2 ho are the 1ulgarian 7ournalists @ here did they went @
42 ho are those two lady 7ournalists @ here did they went @
:92 'hose two lady 7ournalists inter&iewed %a7i& >andhi. 1ut 'amil!adu political
party peopleF 'ha. #andiyan and ,aragatham (handrasekar were telling they didnt
know what %a7i& spoke with the 7ournalists. hat are the hiding @
::2 Just one hour before his murderF %a7i& told it was (I) that killed the pakistan
president Lia-ul-$a+. hy shoud he tell that @ hat made him to tell that @ 6id he
know if there is some plan like that against him @
:32 July-:44: I 'he central home minister S.#.(hawan made a statement that
apart from ;''A there are other international organiJations and powerful eBternal
forces in&ol&ed in the background of %a7i&Ks murder. ho are they referred here @
:=2 hy didnKt the special in&estination branch en+uire on the abo&e home
ministerKs statement @
:/2 6uring the gulf war India helped fueling DS aircrafts. %a7i& gandhi seriously
condemmed this help which was done by primie minister ,r (handrasekar during
that time. hy didnt the special in&estigation branch en+uire on (I)Ks hands on
this murderF as DS was not happy with %a7i& for the abo&e reason @
:52 #alestinian !ational )uthority presidentF ,r. Casser )rafat informed to the
indian prime minister during the time ,r .(handrasekar that M%a7i& >andhiKs life is
under threatK. From where did )rafat got this information @ ho is threatening
%a7i& @ hy did special in&estigation branch didnt en+uire on this @
:.2 )rafat could ha&e got this information if the assasination was planned at
western Aurope or middle eastern countries. hy is this not probed @
:82 ,aragatham (handrasekar came to attend that meeting with %a7i& >andhi. $er
daughterF ;atha #riyakumar came with her husband and ad&ocate ,ahendran from
)rakonam. 1ut it was unknown from where did her son ;alith (handrasekar and
his wife Vinothini came from. 'hough it is known that Vinothini is daughter of
Jaya&arthane from Sri ;ankaF they didnKt en+uire on her. Infact they didnt
en+uire their family who was there at the meeting. why @
:<2 Si&arasanKs mother and VinothiniKs father are sinhalas from Sri ;anka who
were present at the incident. It is possible that they were sent by Sri ;ankan
president #remadasa as messangers. #remadasa is not happy with %a7i& on sending
the Indian peace keeping force -I#0F2 to Sri ;anka. hy was the in&estigation not
done in that angle @ - )lso we should note here a Sinhala Sri ;ankan army person
hit %a7i& >andhi with a gun during his &isit to Sri ;anka 2
:42 1oth ;''A and Sri ;anka hate %a7i& gandhi as he is the reaon for sending
Indian peace keeping force -I#0F2 to Sri ;anka. )d&ocate ,r (handrasekar
challenged special in&estigation branch thatF if they could pro&e Vinothini and her
family are innocent then those who did the crime will accept it on their own. 1ut
the special in&estination didnt accept his challence and not en+uired those who is
related on this. why @
392 0amini 6isanayakaF )thulath ,uthaliF ickramasinghe are prominant
politicians in Sri ;anka. hen all those people are murdered president #remadasa
was pointed. hy didKt the in&estigation didnt happen in this angle @
3:2 hy dont Si&arasanF 6hanu and Subha did this murder due to pressure from
eBternal forces. Just because they are 'amils from yarlpanamF did the
in&estigators linked them with ;''A and closed the case @
332 hat is the strong e&idence that links ;''A and its head #rabhakaran to
%a7i&Ks assasination case. @
3=2 hat is the proof that Sri&arasan spoke to #rabhakaran thro a radio. hy is
this not an assumption @
3/2 It is &ery much possible that politicians within the congress could ha&e
considered %a7i& >andhi is blocking their de&elopment within the party and could
ha&e hired some group to assasinate %a7i&. 'his moti&ation cannot be denied.
352 Various international business people specifically those selling weapons would
ha&e been in contact with %a7i& as a prime minister. 'hey could ha&e hired the
assasinators to do this murder. 6id in&estigators probed this @
3.2 hat if Sri ;anka did thisF thinking India might send the Indian peace keeping
force again to their country and didnt like a strong leader emerging from India @
382 (I) always had interest in erradicating leaders in all third world countries. 6id
the same kind of interest got applied on %a7i& @
3<2 %a7i& >andhi is the only leader who pre&ents the other prominant political
party in India 1J# to get into power. It is possible that the indian parties like 1J#
and %SS could ha&e used the M$indu fa&ourableK ;''A and Sri ;ankan tamils to do
this assasination.
342 hen other ma7or (ongress party members in 'amilnadu like VaJhapaadi and
,oopanar didnt take interest in getting %a7i& to this meetingF ,aragatham
(handrasekar tra&eled to 6elhi and forced %a7i& to come for this meeting at
Sriperambuthur. Is that without her knowledge she become one reason for %a7i&Ks
murder @
=9 2 ho is #ottu )maan @ Is there a person like that @ ;''A says there was a
senior person by name )maan who died war and the only person there is #ottu.
$ow did the special in&estigation branch stamped someone who is not ali&e as
second criminal in this case @
=:2 'here are many parallels between the murder of #admanabha and that of
%a7i& >andhi. #admanabhaKs murder was in&estigaed by 'amil!adu +ueue branch
police and %a7i& >andhiKs murder was in&estigated by special in&estigation branch.
1oth the in&estigators are telling the murder was planned at CarlpanamF Sri ;anka.
Si&araasan was identified as the prime criminal in both the #admanabhaKs case as
well as %a7i&K case. #rabhakaran was considered criminal in %a7i&Ks assasination
case bur was not in #admanabhaKs case. $ow come @ It shows adding
#rabhakaranKs name came out of political decision rather than that came out from
in&estigations. It is clearly an effort taken by special in&estigation branch to to
gi&e life to their case intentionally.
=32 ) famous Sri ;ankan tamil poet 0asi. )nandan met %a7i& at the airport. hat
message did he got from #rabhakaran to %a7i& gandhi @ If #rabhakaran seeked
%a7i&Ks help in the freedom struggle of 'amil Aelam through 0asi )nandanF why
would #rabhakaran murder %a7i& >andhi @
==2 #rabhakaran knows it is from India and 'amil!adu that he can get support and
sympathy. 6id #rabhakaran done such a foollish acti&ity by killing %a7i&F to loose
all the support of Indians and also get the organiJation banned @
=/2 ;atha 0annan stopped %a7i& and read a poetry for him. 'hat enabled 6hanuF a
suside bomber standing neBt to herF to burst the bomb. hy is her name is not
included in the criminals list @ 6hanu used only ;atha kannan to get inside. hen
$ari1abu who got killed in the blast got included in the criminalKs list why not
;atha 0annan @ hy is special in&estigation branch showing softness towards
congress members @
=52 1efore getting to Sri#ambuthurF %a7i& spoke at two roadside gatherings.
VaJhapaadi %amamurthyF the 'amil!adu congress leader was with him in those
two places. 1ut at Sri #erambuthur meeting he was standing &ery far from %a7i&.
hy so @
=.2 ,any innocent people and security personnels died along with %a7i& >andhi.
1ut nothing happened to any of the congress party members not e&en minor
in7ury. $ow @
=82 It was belie&ed that ;atha 0umar who brought Si&arasanF 6hanu and Subha to
Sri#erambuthur. She took them specifically to ladies section and told ;atha
0annan to take care of them. 1ut ;atha 0umarKs name is not in the criminalKs list.
hy @
=<2 $ow can we say #rabhakaran is in&ol&ed 7ust based on an old photograph of
Si&arasan with #rabhakaran @
=42 hy is it not possible that Si&arasanF 6hanu and Subha are eBpelled from ;''A
and they ha&e been hired by westernF AuropeanF ,iddle Aast or India as
professional assasinators.
/92 %anganathan confessed that it was based on re+uest by ,argret )l&a that he
ga&e his house at 1angalore for rent to Si&arasan. 6id they en+uired how far this is
true @
/:2 Is there any in&estigation done on in&ol&ement of (handra SwamiF
Subramanyam Swamy F (handrasekar and arms business person 0asoki in this
murder @
/32 hat kind of benifit ;''A get by murdering %a7i& >andhi @ 6id super powers
like DS helped them by arms through (I) @
/=2 hy do we need (1I & Special In&estigation branch which find few people they
prefer to get the reports @
Dnless all these confusions are clarifiedF the real culprit will be hiding behind

#eople at the helm are protecting %a7i& murder accusedK
Former (entral 1ureau of In&estigationKs former chief in&estigating officer 0
%agothaman has claimed in a recently published book P (onspiracy to kill %a7i&"
From (1I files I that a lot of facts pertaining to the former prime ministerKs
assassination were either suppressedF or were studiously ignored.
%agothamam writes that there were attempts made to protect the ;iberation
'igers of 'amil Aelam from being called the conspirators behind %a7i&Ks killing. In
this inter&iew with rediff.comKs Vicky !an7appaF %agothaman speaks about the
conspiracy and the hurdles that were faced in a probe in which many aspects were
hushed up.
$ow has your book been recei&ed@
'hat is too early to tell. It is 7ust outF but is under debate. ;et us wait and watch.
Cou write that 6ra&ida ,unetra 0aJhagam chief , 0arunanidhiKs Q Images R
scheduled public meeting in Sriperumbudur on ,ay 3:F :44:F the day %a7i& was
killedF was abruptly cancelled.
0arunanidhi was to address a meeting at .SO clock that e&eningF two hours before
%a7i&Ks meeting. 'he police had made all arrangements. 'hen there was a
telegram from the )nna )ri&alyam postal office 7urisdiction that the meeting was
I probed the sender of that telegram. I was told to ask 0arunanidhi about the
same. $owe&erF I could not in&estigate him directly. ;aterF I was told by my
superiors that the matter was being looked intoF and I should remain +uiet.
I was also told that it was a director general of policeF %angaswamyF who had
ad&ised that the meeting be cancelled. $owe&erF when I looked at the
%angaswamy affida&itF it read that he had ordered as much police force as possible
in &iew of this meeting.
I also attended the Jain commission in+uiry in which 0arunanidhi was eBamined.
$e had said then that it was the then go&ernorF 1hishma !arayan SinghF who had
told him to cancel the meeting. ;ook at the contradictions.
ho according to you was the one who ad&ised cancellation of the 0arunanidhi
#robably it was ,arumalarchi 6ra&ida ,unetra 0aJhagam leader Vaiko who
telephoned and sought cancellation of the meeting. 'he telephone records
needed to be eBaminedF but it was ne&er done.
hy do you think Vaiko tried to stop 0arunanidhi@
)fter %a7i&Ks assassinationF many 6,0 workers were attackedF their offices burnt.
If 0arunanidhi had gone thereF he would ha&e been in trouble and there would
ha&e been an onslaught. $enceF they were trying to protect him.
6oes this mean e&en 0arunanidhi was part of the plot@
!oF that is not what I meant. 0arunanidhi is not a killer. $e wanted a democratic
solution to the problem and this was ne&er liked by slain ;''A Q Images R chief
Cou accuse Vaiko of ha&ing a hand in this entire issue.
Vaiko was the one who spoke &ehemently against the Indo-Jaffna accord. Vaiko
said at that time he was first an ;''AF then a 'amilian and then an Indian. )t the
time of the accordF #rabhakaran was brought down to !ew 6elhi Q Images R and
was put up at the $otel )shoka.
Vaiko sought to meet himF but he was not allowed to do so. $e con&ersed with
#rabhakaran on the intercomF during which the latter told himF T)nnaF this %a7i&
has betrayed me. I feel like committing suicide as he is sealing my fate. 1ut I
cannot kill myself as I need to fight for my people.U
Vaiko wrote a book later in which he mentions that #rabakaran had thought of
committing suicide.
'ell us moreF sirH
hen Vaiko had gone to Sri ;anka Q Images RF we had secured a &ideotape titled
Inside a 'igerKs (a&e which has him on tape. 'here he spoke e&erything that was
anti-%a7i&. It appeared that he was more against %a7i& than #rabakaran himself.
'his was also a point noted during our in&estigation.
'hen there is also a meeting in which Vaiko says that %a7i& wonKt go back ali&e
from 'amil !adu. $eF howe&erF retracted that statement. 6uring the
in&estigationF we +uestioned one (hinna who is on death row.
$e said that in one of the hideoutsF Si&arasan -the prime accused in the
assassination2 held talks with one Srini&as )yya and said that after the successful
completion of the missionF they should ensure that Vaiko becomes the chief
minister of 'amil !adu.
hy was the e&idence not used then@
'his is a +uestion that I ha&e been asking. e had so much e&idenceF but
surprisingly Vaiko was roped in as prosecution witness number 359 in the 'errorist
and 6isrupti&e )cti&ities court.
6uring the trialF he denied speaking all of which was on &ideo with #rabhakaran.
'he &ideo was played out. $e claimed that it was him in the &ideo but the &oice
was not his. It was sent for eBamination and the &oice too was confirmedF but till
date there is no per7ury case against him.
Cou ha&e alleged that e&en the Intelligence 1ureau and the %esearch and )nalysis
ing tried to co&er up ;''AKs role@
)fter the assassinationF (handrashekharF the then prime ministerF con&ened a
meeting in which e&en Janata #arty president Subramanian Swamy -then minister
of commerce and industry2 was present. 'he then I1 chiefF ,0 !arayananF and
%) bossF >S 1a7paiF were also present.
Swamy said that it was ob&ious that the ;''A was responsible. 1a7pai retorted that
it was not the ;''A. 'he meeting was ad7ourned. ,eanwhileF the (1I director had
gone to (olombo for the in&estigation.
'hey were called back and rushed to 6elhi for the meeting. 6uring the meetingF it
was again asked why a trip was made to (olombo and did that mean it was
preconcei&ed that it was the ;''A which was behind the assassination.
1a7pai once again opposed this. $e e&en +uoted one 0ittu to be his source. 0ittuF
incidentallyF was #rabhakaranKs right hand man. )n ;''A man could ne&er ha&e
been a %) mole and e&en 6r Swamy had termed this as absurd.
hat are your allegations against !arayanan@
) &ideo taken at the meeting on that ill-fated day in which there were images of
6hanu was ne&er made a&ailable to the (1I. 'he assassination team was waiting
for nearly two hours in a sterile area. 'he original &ideo reached !arayanan.
'he go&ernment had decided to conduct an in&estigation in this regard and this
case was registered with the Special In&estigating 'eam and the (1I. $owe&erF it
was buried. ,y +uestion isF why no action has been taken for suppressing
It was being said that 6hanu had barged into the meetingF but this &ideo clearly
shows that they were waiting for a long time. e probed this case risking our own
li&es and it does upset me that people sitting at the helm of affairs are protecting
the accused.
6o you think the loopholes will be rectified now@
;et us see.
