Whether any action was taken against concerned public functionaries but conspiracy was hatched to eliminate the R.T.I. activist cum whistle blower. Whether you Hon’ble Sirs are providing us good governance. Undoubtedly law order is state subject but our judiciary is not less accountable for this jungle rule.
2-It is submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that
The direction of D.G.P. don’t reach to subordinates in state of uttar pradesh. In this state police personnel are governed by their own rule as don’t care what directions their superintendent has issued or what circular has been circulated from their head office. These surprising facts came when an RTI Activist Advocate Mr. Gaurav Agarval sought information concerned with the security of RTI Activists in the state . According to state home department ,no circular/order has been issued in concerned with the security of RTI activists . While D.G.P. office revealed contrary facts that direction concerned with the security of RTI Activists in the state has been issued to zonal offices and units in the month of June. D.G.P. office also informed aforesaid advocate that  joint secretary of home department of  central government had issued guide lines in regard to security of RTI activists in March 2011. It is true fact that law order is state subject and to safe guard the life and property of people of state is the duty of state government. Why state government is adopting lackadaisical approach in regard to compliance  of directives of central government concerned with the security of RTI Activists cum whistle blowers. Government of uttar pradesh is also adopting lackadaisical approach in appointment of members of transparency panel. Why state functionaries are wreaking vengeance with public spirited persons even when they are supporting the government in fishing out corrupts from the system.
Hon’ble Sir-Article 6 of U.D.H.R. states that every one has right to recognition every where as a person before the law. But even citizens are deprived from this right in this country. If not why whistle blower was eliminated instead of furnishing sought information?
Article 7 of U.D.H.R. states that all are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination equal protection of law .All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in the violation of this declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination. Whether adequate security was provided by state government to RTI activists as required by law. Whether police inquiry going on right track ,then why police is not making inquiry with those who instead of providing sought information pressurised criminals to shut the mouth of whistle blower for ever.
Article 8 of U.D.H.R. states that every one has right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for the acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law. Right to life is fundamental right as well as human right but this R.T.I. Activist was deprived from this right because of anarchy in state government and his family has been orphan. Whether state government have provided any aid to bereaved family. Whether in the eye of public functionaries job of information seeker was not constructive and government friendly. Why government itself playing role of wreaking vengeance with the RTI Activists cum whistle blowers. We are insecure in this government of Akhilesh Yadav as he has no regard for public spirited people.
 Most Hon’ble Sirs who want to curb the human rights violation may take effective steps so that betterment of society could be possible which is the need of hour.
            For this your applicant shall ever pray you Hon’ble Sirs.
                                     Yours sincerely

2 comments on R.T.I. Activist shot dead by criminals as consequent of conspiracy by corrupt public functionaries.

  1. RTI Foundation of India
    An RTI activist, Zakir Siddique, was shot dead in Uttar Pradesh’s Shravasti district. The victim’s wife Kamanrunnisha has lodged an FIR alleging that the husband and supporters of panchyat chief of Lalbojhi village were behind the murder. It has been claimed that the panchayat chief’s husband Jagdev Verma and his supporters intercepted Zakir near his home and fired him after an argument. He was rushed to the nearby community health centre at Ikauna where the doctors declared him brought dead. The police have taken four people into custody in connection with the murder while the prime accused was absconding. It was informed by the wife of the deceased that he sought details of development works being undertaken in the village by the panchayat using the power bestowed under the RTI Act. Zakir would visit the district development officer and other officials and complain about the lack of development works or misappropriation of funds by the panchayat office bearers and demand action against them. He also threatened to approach the state information commission when the district officials displayed reluctance to provide the information. Jagdev Verma and his supporters had allegedly threatened Zakir of serious consequences and were pressurising him to withdraw his RTI application. Many RTI activists have been killed in the past for filing an application under the RTI Act which would reveal the misdeeds of those in power.

  2. Poor whistle blower was shot dead when he was trying to put light on bungling of fund in the development work carried out by gram panchayat. Concerned public functionaries instead of making available sought information to information seeker which may expose their misdeeds , but unfortunately poor RTI activist became victim of conspiracy and had to face untimely demise. Our great sympathy with the bereaved family . Government must provide aid to kith and kin for maintenance of family.
