To ,
Hon'ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship's Companion Justices of the Supreme Court of India.

The Humble petition of the   Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :

1.    Facts of the case:
Our whole hearted respects to honest few in judiciary , parliament & public service. Our salutes to them , due to honest efforts of those few noble persons only at least democracy is surviving in India.
 "Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed." Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt people’s representatives , police , public servants & Judges. Some of the below mentioned judges fall among the category of churchill’s men – Rogues , Rascals & Freebooters.

We  respect  the  honest  few  in judiciary  , police , parliament  and other public services. Our whole hearted respects , salutes to them. We despise  the corrupt.   Sadly , criminalization of  judiciary , police ,  politics has taken place in india. ,  just like the forwarning of Mr.Churchill.

 Throughout this petiton the term  “ JUDGE”  includes all public servants  performing  quasi judicial & judicial functions. Judges are  from  the same society which is full of corruption , favoritism , caste bias , etc.  Judges are also human beings  who  can fall  prey to lure of bribes ,  favours , etc. They  are neither gods nor monks. Also , like other human beings  , they   also make errors.   Many persons  get selected as judges  based  on  other criteria than  merit , integrity , honesty. See the scandals of KPSC , VYAPAM  and mysterious  supreme court collegiums system.  Total lack of  transparency in functioning of judges.  Even  when  cases of national security  ,  crimes by judges were brought before SCI no action , no answer to RTI questions.  When  life of human rights activist , journalist  is under threat  SCI doesn’t take  any action rather  government tries to silence him by  police force.  When  land grabbings , lake encroachments , etc were brought to the notice of SCI at the initial stages , so that it can  stop the crime. But  the SCI didn’t  act  & let the crime  happen , it is continuing till date. SCI  judges may be indirectly in league with MAFIA.   Therefore ,  NEVER  A  JUDGEMENT   IS  ALWAYS  RIGHT .  Some  judgements are right and some biased.
Every human being needs drinking water to survive and every Human Being  has got Human Right  to Live by virtue of  his birth itself. Without  access to drinking water  human beings cann’t survive , they will die.  Therefore  Human  Right  to  Drinking water forms  integral  part of  Human Right to Live. United  Nations  has also affirmed  Human Right  to  Safe  Drinking  Water  to  every human being.
The said agreement  regarding  sharing of Cauvery water  by  british presidency  with Rulers of Mysore Kingdom  decades ago is biased in favor of state of tamil nadu.
Even  decades after independence of india , why should we  stick to british era agreement instead of drawing our own mutual agreement based on present needs  of equality.
When a judge  presiding  in a case even if remotely associated with any of the parties must withdraw from the case paving the way for a neutral judge. This is to prove  to the public that justice is not  merely  delivered but publicly shown to be delivered.
Judges are not subject experts in irrigation , engineering ,  rain calculation , etc. without taking the  expert opinion  , conducting ground assessment  judges have recently made  orders to release Cauvery river water to tamilnadu state.
While  sharing  a river water TOP  PRIORITY  must be  DRINKING WATER for all parties concerned. Second comes irrigation. Here too it must be on equal footing   first round of water for all parties for first crop , after  completion  of first round  second round must commence for all parties. However here  one party  is given water for two  crops  other is denied water even for TOP PRIRITY DRINKING let alone for crop irrigation.  It is unjust.
Lot of confusion is being created by contradictory statements  made out by  contesting parties , governments regarding the water stored in their reservoirs. Till date why not SCI has deputed an impartial expert  team to assess the  actual stored water in reservoirs , their actual needs , rain fall expected , their contingency plans in case of rain fall failure , etc. To make expert’s report public so that public in all the states will  know the truth , law & order , peace will prevail.

2. Question(s) of Law:
Is not  denial of drinking water to   people of north Karnataka from mahadayi river a crime by supreme court judges ?
Is  not  denial  of  Drinking water from  Cauvery river  to  people  in   Karnataka ,  a crime by  supreme court judges  Justice Deepak Mishra , Justice U.U . Lalit , government of  india  , government of Tamilnadu  & government of Karnataka ?
Supreme court definitely has jurisdiction to safeguard human rights of people , to ensure drinking water to all parties  but Does the supreme court has  jurisdiction to  order  parties to release water for irrigation , etc ?

3. Grounds:

Requests for equitable justice , equal share of water and  drinking water at the earliest.. Protection of Human Rights of  Karnataka People , specifically  protection of their human rights to life & drinking water.


4. Averment:
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.


That the present petitioner has not filed any other petition (which are admitted by courts) in any High Court or the Supreme Court of India on the subject matter of the present petition.

PRAYER:
In the above premises, it is prayed that this Hon'ble Court may be pleased:

a . 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  Union Cabinet Secretary , Government of India , chief secretaries of all state governments ,  the concerned public servants  in the present case , to perform their duties.
b . to pass such other orders and further orders as may be deemed necessary on the facts and in the circumstances of the case.

c. to  order government of Karnataka to ensure  supply of drinking water from  Cauvery River to people living in Karnataka and thereby protect their human rights. .
d. to order  Government of India and  other  riparian states  to  ensure  drinking water  to all people.
e. to annul the  present biased Cauvery river sharing agreement between Karnataka , tamilnadu state and  to  constitute expert committee  to  arrive at a scientific formula to ensure drinking water  to all parties concerned. To make that expert’s report public.
f. As  SCI doesn’t have jurisdiction to  interfere  in river sharing , to order government of india to  arrange a conciliatory meeting between the parties.
g. to immediately  post all the Cauvery , mahadayi , Krishna  river disputes related cases to  court of  neutral judges  of supreme court of india  who are not even remotely associated to contesting parties.
h. to criminally  prosecute   respective   supreme court judges  who have denied drinking water to people of Karnataka from mahadayi  & Cauvery rivers , for violation of human rights & fundamental rights. Make public the asset details , career growth details  of theses judges & their family members public.
i.  after  releasing  all the water from  KRS  dam ,  In case  of  rain failure  the water  is not sufficient  for  drinking  purposes till next monsoon.  In such case  supreme court must  arrange  for  supply  of  drinking water to  people of Karnataka  at the expense of  government of india & government of tamilnadu.
j. As per supreme court’s directive  Karnataka people are not allowed to draw  drinking water from mahadayi river and is flowing  to goa  finally to be wasted.  Supreme court must   immediately arrange for  supply of drinking water to people of north Karnataka at the expense of government of india & goa.

FOR WHICH ACT OF KINDNESS, THE PETITIONER SHALL BE DUTY BOUND, EVER PRAY.

Editorial : Supreme Court of India violating Fundamental Rights

    Drinking water  is   a  basic need , essential for human beings , cattles , live stock to survive.  Following  two PILs seeking drinking water from Cauvery  River  & Mahadayi River is  an effort by public , our publication , a struggle for life, survival.  Right to Life is a Human Right  must be  respected by all law making bodies  and  even supreme court of india. SCI  itself is grossly violating citizen’s fundamental rights , human rights  instead of safe guarding it. Who will prosecute SCI judges ?  God save  my India.

Jai Hind. Vande Mataram.

The court verdict that prompted Indira Gandhi to declare Emergency

Seldom does a court verdict change the course of history of a country.
The June 12, 1975 verdict of the Allahabad High Court convicting then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi of electoral malpractices and debarring her from holding any elected post falls in this category. The verdict delivered by Justice Jagmohanlal Sinha, it is widely believed, led to imposition of Emergency in India on June 25, 1975.
Indira Gandhi had won the 1971 Lok Sabha election from Rae Bareli Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh convincingly defeating socialist leader Raj Narain, who later challenged her election alleging electoral malpractices and violation of the Representation of the People Act, 1951. It was alleged that her election agent Yashpal Kapoor was a government servant and that she used government officials for personal election related work.
While convicting Indira Gandhi of electoral malpractices, Justice Sinha disqualified her from Parliament and imposed a six-year ban on her holding any elected post.
“The respondent no. I (Indira Gandhi) was thus guilty of a corrupt practice under section 123(7) of the Act.....accordingly stands disqualified for a period of six years from the date of this order...,” Justice Sinha pronounced to a stunned Indira Gandhi who was present in person in the court. But on an appeal filed by Indira Gandhi, Justice VR Krishna Iyer – a vacation judge of the Supreme Court - on June 24, 1975 granted a conditional stay on Justice Sinha’s verdict allowing her to continue as Prime Minister. However, she was debarred from taking part in parliamentary proceedings and draw salary as an MP.
Interestingly, the very next day she imposed the Emergency suspending all fundamental rights, putting opposition leaders in jails and imposing censorship on the media.
While the Emergency was in force, the Supreme Court later overturned her conviction on November 7, 1975.
Asked if Justice Sinha’s verdict changed the course of India’s history, senior advocate Shanti Bhushan - who represented Raj Narain – said: “Yes indeed the emergency as well as Indira losing the 1977 election was the direct result of Justice Jagmohanlal Sinha’s judgment.”
“Justice Sinha was a very able honest and God fearing judge. Before the judgment an attempt was made to influence him by the then Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court D S Mathur who visited him at his residence along with his wife for the first and only one time to convey to him that he had been informed by Dr Mathur who was related to him and was the personal physician of Mrs Gandhi that she had decided to elevate Justice Sinha to the Supreme Court after he had decided the case. However Justice Sinha’s strong conscience did not permit him to take the bait. This was conveyed to me long after the judgment by Justice Sinha himself when we both were playing golf in Allahabad.
“His judgment was unassailable and Mrs Gandhi had to change the law retrospectively to get over his judgment. His judgment was hailed all over the democratic world as a great triumph of an independent judiciary in India”, Bhushan – a former law minister – said.

When Judges Got It Wrong

The ‘ADM Jabalpur’ judgment in the backdrop of Emergency remains a blot.

Appointed out of turn, the new chief justice turned out to be a committed judge and a few months before his retirement in 1977 gifted to the nation the infamy of ADM Jabalpur.
“The care and concern bestowed by the state authorities upon the welfare of detenues who are well housed, well fed and well treated, is almost maternal” — wrote Supreme Court judge Hameedullah Beg in his separate judgment in the ADM Jabalpur case (1976) on the issues if citizens’ fundamental rights could be suspended during the Emergency. The allusion in the word “maternal” to the lady prime minister of the time who had imposed the infamous Emergency on the country, was too obvious to be disavowed. And the child got his due reward from the mother. Beg was appointed the next chief justice of India, superseding the legendary judge H.R. Khanna, who had bravely dissented from the majority judgment. If The New York Times saluted the dissenting judge saying “if India ever finds its way back to freedom and democracy that were proud hallmarks of its first eighteen years as an independent nation, someone will surely erect a monument to Justice H.R. Khanna”, so what? Nehru’s daughter never had any remorse for what she had done.
This was the second time Indira Gandhi had superseded a senior judge to appoint a CJI of her choice. Before this, in April 1973, Ajit Nath Ray, junior to three judges in the apex court, had superseded all three to become the chief justice. Former Chief Justice Mohammad Hidayatullah had called it an initiative to produce “not forward looking judges but judges looking forward to their future”. Former Attorney General for India C.K. Daphtary had remarked “the boy who wrote the best essay won the first prize” — the reference being to Ray’s dissent in the cause célèbre called Kesavananda Bharati, delivered just two days before he took over as the CJI.
Appointed out of turn, the new chief justice turned out to be a committed judge and a few months before his retirement in 1977 gifted to the nation the infamy of ADM Jabalpur. Four of the five judges on the bench deciding this case — Ray, Beg, Chandrachud and Bhagwati — had gone in government’s favour; poor Khanna was the lone dissenter. Ray demitted office in 1977 and Beg, perhaps judged as the “runner up” in Kesavananda Bharti, succeeded him as the next CJI.
Ray was not rewarded further after his retirement and spent the rest of his life in ignominy, but Beg’s reward did not end with out of turn appointment as CJI. After his retirement, Indira Gandhi appointed him chairman of the Minorities Commission. As against the prescribed three-year term, he headed the Commission for seven years and was decorated with Padma Bhushan.
The majority decision in ADM Jabalpur was severely criticised everywhere then, and continues to be criticised till this date, as a dark spot in India’s legal history. On the silver jubilee of the decision in April 2001, the People’s Union for Civil Liberties remembered it as “a judgment so shameful that even Hitler would have blushed had he the opportunity to peruse it”. In his Justice Khanna Memorial Lecture of 2009, former Chief Justice M.N. Venkatachaliah said the decision deserved to be “confined to the dustbin of history”.
Delivering the next lecture in the series to honour Khanna, former Attorney General Soli J Sorabjee recollected his response to the Ray-Beg ruling: “I never cry or show my emotions after losing a case. But, that day, sitting with Nani Palkhivala in Mumbai discussing the case, I cried.” In a 2010 judgment, Justice A.K. Ganguly of the Supreme Court admitted that “the instances of this court’s judgment violating human rights of citizens may be extremely rare, but it cannot be said that such a situation can never happen. We can remind ourselves of the majority decision of the Constitution Bench of this court in ADM Jabalpur.” In a press interview given in 2011, nonagenarian P.N. Bhagwati said: “The majority judgment was not the correct judgment. If it was open to me to come to a fresh decision in that case, I would agree with what Justice Khanna did.”
Though too late in the day, these judicial confessions of guilt must have pleased the noble soul of Hansraj Khanna who had sacrificed his chance of being CJI to save the nation’s pride.


A Chief Justice of India says "I am sorry" but 30 years too late

When a former Chief Justice of India apologises for a judgement, that’s big news.  And Justice P N Bhagwati was not just apologising for any judgement.
He was admitting his “mistake” about  a case the New York Times called close to the Indian Supreme Court’s “utter surrender” to an absolutist government.
That case was ADM Jabalpur, popularly known as the Habeas Corpus case. On 28 April, 1976, during the Emergency, the Supreme Court had to decide if the Court could entertain a writ of habeas corpus filed by a person challenging his detention. The High Courts had already said yes. But the Supreme Court went against the unanimous decision of all the High Courts and upheld the right of Indira Gandhi’s government to suspend all fundamental rights during the Emergency. Four judges ruled for the government. One of them was Justice P N Bhagwati.
The lone dissenter was Justice H R Khanna.  The New York Times wrote at that time:
If India ever finds its way back to freedom and democracy that were proud hallmarks of its first eighteen years as an independent nation, someone will surely erect a monument to Justice H R Khanna of the Supreme Court. It was Justice Khanna who spoke out fearlessly and eloquently for freedom this week.

Now 30 years later Justice Bhagwati says in an interview withMyLaw.net   his judgment was “an act of weakness.” He also says, “it was against my conscience...That judgment is not Justice Bhagwati’s.”
This might sound like a brave mea culpa on his part. But unfortunately it leaves a lot to be desired.
First of all there is Justice Bhagwati’s own track record of having his ear finely tuned to the prevailing political winds.
Justice Bhagwati has praised Indira Gandhi government during the Emergency and later criticized her during the tenure of Janata government. When Indira Gandhi came back to power, he wrote a letter congratulating her.
Here’s an excerpt from that letter:
“May I offer you my heartiest congratulations on your resounding victory in the elections and your triumphant return as the Prime Minister of India...I am sure that with your iron will and firm determination, uncanny insight and dynamic vision, great administrative capacity and vast experience, overwhelming love and affection of the people and above all, a heart which is identified with the misery of the poor and the weak, you will be able to steer the ship of the nation safely to its cherished goal.”
What this really shows is that CJI Bhagwati might have gone against his conscience but certainly not against his career trajectory. Justice H R Khanna, who dissented in that Jabalpur case should have become the CJI because of his seniority. But he paid the price for that dissent. He was superceded by Justice Beg. Justice Bhagwati would likely have met with the same fate of Justice H R Khanna had he dissented.
This is not the only issue where Justice Bhagwati has made a volte face.
Take the mysterious collegium system by which Supreme Court justices are appointed which has come under heavy criticism for being an unaccountable opaque cabal. It was Justice Verma who created the collegium system but in theFirst Judges Case (the SP Gupta case) Justice Bhagwati wrote about it: “There must be a collegium to make recommendation to the President in regard to appointment of a Supreme Court or High Court Judge”.
Justice Bhagwati’s mind has now changed about that as well and he says he is against the collegium system in toto.
His own track record as a judge has also raised legal eyebrows.
Noted constitutional law jurist HM Seervai has criticised Justice Bhagwati for merely copying justice Krishna Iyer’s judgment in the Som Prakash case and incorporating it into his judgment in the Ajay Hasia case.
In a landmark case of constitutional law, popularly referred to as the Minerva Mills judgment, Justice Bhagwati wrote: “Unfortunately we could not be ready with our judgment and hence 9 May,1980 being the last working day of the Court before the summer vacation we made an order expressing our conclusion but stating that we would give our reasons later.”
A judge of the Apex Court saying "I am not ready with my reasons but this is my conclusion" anyway sets a deplorable standard for the Indian judiciary.
Justice Bhagwati writes, that after the Emergency he realized the mistake of Jabalpur and he practically rewrote Part III and Part IV of the Constitution; particularly Articles 14, 19, 21 and 32. A judge claiming that he is “writing” the Constitution, as opposed to interpreting it is unorthodox to say the least.
These days Justice Bhagwati is more in the news because he is a trustee with the beleaguered Sathya Sai Trust. As financial scandals  rock the Sai Baba’s spiritual empire, the trust relies on people of the eminence of  a former CJI to give it some credibility. Immediately after the demise of Satya Sai Baba Justice Bhagwati was appointed as chancellor of the Sri Sathya Sai  Institute of Higher Learning (Deemed to be University). Recently in an interview given to The Times of India  Justice Bhagwati said: “Sai Baba, my god, dictated my every single judgment”.
People will make of that what they will. But the real question now is what does this apology mean for the Indian judiciary. Some will think its proof of the self-correcting mechanism of the Indian judiciary. But it’s also proof of something much more damning - that political equations play a crucial role in the appointment of judges and the judgments these judges deliver.
What happened in the Habeas Corpus case was not a momentary lapse in judgment. It was a disgrace to the Supreme Court, and more so because Justice Bhagwati says it went against his conscience, even then.
This belated apology does not restore the faith of people in judiciary. The only way to do that is to have an independent judicial commission appoint judges and bring in transparency in every stage of their appointment.
It may save us from a Bhagwati-style apology another 30 years later.

The human right to water and sanitation
 Eight short facts on the human right to water and sanitation
[  - 388 KB]


On 28 July 2010, through Resolution 64/292, the United Nations General Assembly explicitly recognized the human right to water and sanitation and acknowledged that clean drinking water and sanitation are essential to the realisation of all human rights. The Resolution calls upon States and international organisations to provide financial resources, help capacity-building and technology transfer to help countries, in particular developing countries, to provide safe, clean, accessible and affordable drinking water and sanitation for all.
In November 2002, the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights adopted General Comment No. 15 on the right to water. Article I.1 states that "The human right to water is indispensable for leading a life in human dignity. It is a prerequisite for the realization of other human rights". Comment No. 15 also defined the right to water as the right of everyone to sufficient, safe, acceptable and physically accessible and affordable water for personal and domestic uses.

        • General Comment No. 15. The right to water. UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, November 2002
The human right to water and the MDGs
Formarly acknowledging water as a human right, and expressing the willingness to give content and effect to this right, may be a way of encouraging the international community and governments to enhance their efforts to satisfy basic human needs and to meet the Millennium Development Goals.
Source: Water as a Human Right? IUCN, UNDP, 2004
What is...?
        • Sufficient. The water supply for each person must be sufficient and continuous for personal and domestic uses. These uses ordinarily include drinking, personal sanitation, washing of clothes, food preparation, personal and household hygiene. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), between 50 and 100 litres of water per person per day are needed to ensure that most basic needs are met and few health concerns arise.
        • Safe. The water required for each personal or domestic use must be safe, therefore free from micro-organisms, chemical substances and radiological hazards that constitute a threat to a person's health. Measures of drinking-water safety are usually defined by national and/or local standards for drinking-water quality. The World Health Organization (WHO) Guidelines for drinking-water quality provide a basis for the development of national standards that, if properly implemented, will ensure the safety of drinking-water.
        • Acceptable. Water should be of an acceptable colour, odour and taste for each personal or domestic use. [...] All water facilities and services must be culturally appropriate and sensitive to gender, lifecycle and privacy requirements.
        • Physically accessible. Everyone has the right to a water and sanitation service that is physically accessible within, or in the immediate vicinity of the household, educational institution, workplace or health institution. According to WHO, the water source has to be within 1,000 metres of the home and collection time should not exceed 30 minutes.
        • Affordable. Water, and water facilities and services, must be affordable for all. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) suggests that water costs should not exceed 3 per cent of household income.
UN initiatives that are helping to raise the issue...
        • Human Rights Council Resolution A/HRC/RES/18/1
On 28 September 2011, the UN Human Rights Council passed a new resolution which takes the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation a step further. The Council welcomed the submission of the compilation of good practices on the right to safe drinking water and sanitation, in which the Special Rapporteur put particular emphasis on practical solutions with regard to the implementation of the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation. The resolution calls on States to ensure enough financing for sustainable delivery of water and sanitation services.
        • World Health Assembly Resolution 64/24 [  - 24 KB]
In May 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO), through Resolution 64/24, made a call to Member States "to ensure that national health strategies contribute to the realization of water- and sanitation-related Millennium Development Goals while coming in support to the progressive realization of the human right to water and sanitation" and to WHO's Director General to "to strengthen WHO's collaboration with all relevant UN-Water members and partners, as well as other relevant organizations promoting access to safe drinking-water, sanitation and hygiene services, so as to set an example of effective intersectoral action in the context of WHO's involvement in the United Nations Delivering as One initiative, and WHO's cooperation with the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation with a view to improving the realization of the human right to water and Sanitation".
        • Appointment of an independent expert [  - 32 KB]
In March 2008, through resolution 7/22, the Human Rights Council decided "To appoint, for a period of three years, an independent expert on the issue of human rights obligations related to access to safe drinking water and sanitation". In April 2011, through resolution 16/2, the Human Rights Council decided to extend the mandate for a period of three years. The Independent Expert monitors and reports on States' implementation of the right to water as well as related violations.


More Than Bad Maths: Four Big Errors That Let Jayalalithaa Off the Hook
BY SANDHYA RAVISHANKAR


A day after former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa was acquitted by the Karnataka High Court on May 11 in a high profile corruption case, Special Public Prosecutor BV Acharya revealed arithmetic errors in the judgment. An error in adding up a tabular column of loans considered as income by the High Court judge left a gaping hole of Rs 13.5 crore, which the AIADMK is still trying to explain away.
Now, more serious errors of duplication have been found in Judge CR Kumaraswamy’s verdict. It now appears that the High Court has, erroneously, added loan amounts twice to the income of the defendants. This means that the amount calculated by the judge as ‘explained income’ — the basis on which the court has exonerated Jayalalithaa and others — is a highly inflated figure.
To put it in simple terms, disproportionate wealth is calculated by adding up all the assets and income of the accused and finding out which of the assets and income are from an explained valid source of income. Those assets and income that do not have a satisfactory source are then deemed to be disproportionate wealth.
The trial court, in September 2014, had found Jayalalithaa guilty of possessing disproportionate wealth to the tune of Rs 53.6 crore. Earlier this month the Karnataka HC ruled on her appeal, acquitting her of all charges as it found disproportionate wealth to be only to the tune of Rs 2.82 crore. The High Court cited earlier judgments to argue that 10% of unexplained wealth was permissible as per law and that since only 8.12% of the defendants’ wealth was disproportionate to their income, they were liable to be acquitted as per law.
Duplication of loans
On page 852 of the High Court order, Judge Kumaraswamy has put in place a tabular column showing a list of 10 loans, which, he argues, would constitute additional income, automatically bringing down the total amount of disproportionate income in Jayalalithaa’s case. He then adjusts the sum assessed as income by the prosecution and arrives at a new figure.
Out of the 10 loans, the first one, a loan to Jaya Publications from Indian Bank to the tune of Rs 1.5 crore is clearly shown to have been repaid in full, in the corresponding Page 294 of the trial court order and has been accepted as legitimate expenditure by the lower court. Therefore, it is already factored in.
Of the other nine loans listed, seven of these have already been taken into account by the prosecution. In fact, the trial court order, on pages 126 to 139, delves in detail into each individual loan taken by the defendants and accepts them either completely or partially with reasons.
Legal experts say that this amounts to duplication of income – if, for instance, the trial court has accepted an income of Rs 100 out of these loans, the High Court has erroneously taken the same Rs 100 and added it once again, assuming that the lower court had omitted to do so. This would take the total income to double the actual amount i.e. Rs 200.
In fact, the High Court appears to have made some more glaring errors. Item number 8 in the table on Page 852 is a loan of Rs 1.57 crore in the name of VN Sudhakaran, Jayalalithaa’s foster son and one of the accused. A comparison with Pages 136 and 137 of the trial court order shows the discrepancy. Three pieces of evidence are cited in this particular loan – one, a letter from Sudhakaran to Indian Bank requesting a loan of Rs 1.57 crore. The second evidence is a letter from Indian Bank sanctioning a loan amount of Rs 1.33 crore and not the full amount requested. The third bit of evidence is the statement of accounts from the bank’s records. The trial court has taken the outstanding balance of the loan amount as income. The High Court, however, in a glaring error, takes into account only the first piece of evidence i.e. the loan amount requested by Sudhakaran, which was not even sanctioned in full.

Page 852 of High Court Judge Kumaraswamy’s judgment of May 11, 2015
Other loans show up similar discrepancies in the High Court order.
Another glaring error in the loan table is that of item number 3 – a loan of Rs 90 lakhs taken by Jayalalithaa from Indian Bank. The HC has taken this into account despite that loan having been sanctioned in August 1996, after the ‘check period’ of the case, i.e. after her first term as Chief Minister of the state had ended.

Details of loans listed on pp126-127 in trial court Judge Cunha’s September 2014 verdict finding Jayalalithaa guilty of corruption

Page 127 of trial court Judge Cunha’s verdict of September 2014
Once we discount the duplicated loans, the arithmetic now works out as follows.
Total assets accepted by HC: Rs 37,59,02,466
Total income as calculated by HC (incl loans as under Page 852): Rs 34,76,65,654
Now we deduct the amount of Rs 18,17,46,000 from this since the loans mentioned have already been taken into account by the trial court.
Only one component Item number 9 would be added since it does not reflect in the trial court’s math.
New total = Old total – loan income
            i.e. Rs 34,76,65,654 – Rs 18,17,46,000
Add Item number 9 as extra loan = Rs 1,65,00,000
New total income = Rs 18,24,19,654
 Now we apply this new total income to the formula used by the HC on Page 914 of the order, to arrive at the percentage of disproportionate wealth.
 Disproportionate assets = Total assets – Total income
     = Rs 37,59,02,466 – Rs 18,24,19,654
                                      = Rs 19,34,82,812
This means the amount of disproportionate assets shoots up to Rs 19.3 crores from Rs 2.82 crores as given in the HC order.
 Percentage =        Disproportionate assets X 100 / Income
                        =           Rs 19,34,82,812 X 100 / 18,24,19,654
The percentage now goes up to 106% as opposed to the 8.12% calculated by the HC, which was the number that acquitted Jayalalithaa and 3 others.
“There are a number of apparent errors in the High Court’s treatment of the funds that need to be gone into,” said Supreme Court lawyer Karuna Nundy. “For instance, the first item in Page 852 of the High Court judgment is a loan of Rs 1.5 cr (Ex.P.1027) – the High Court treats this as income that has been properly explained. The trial court though, examined the bank manager and saw documents that showed that the loan from the Indian Bank had already been paid back.  This leaves an unexplained amount of over 1 crore. There are other gaps – take Ex.P.1330, a Rs 1.57 crore loan taken by VN Sudhakaran, again from Indian Bank. The trial court order clearly shows Sudhakaran only received Rs 1.33 cr of the Rs 1.57 cr, sanctioned.”
“This allegation is incorrect,” said a senior AIADMK leader who did not wish to be named. “We have thoroughly looked through the order and there is no discrepancy,” he said.
The 10% loophole
Jurists are spitting fire at the law used by Judge Kumaraswamy on Page 914 of his order acquitting Jayalalithaa. In this, the judge has cited the Krishnanand Agnihotri case, which states that “when there is disproportionate asset to the extent of 10%, the accused are entitled for acquittal.” He has also cited a circular issued by the Government of Andhra Pradesh which states, “Disproportionate asset to the extent of 20% can also be considered as a permissible limit.”
“Is the judiciary giving legal sanction to corruption?” asked a retired High Court judge who did not wish to be named. “Will this 10% sanction apply to its own officers and subordinate judiciary? So a court clerk found taking a bribe of Rs 1000 could be let off since it is less than 10% of his annual salary? Will this 10% be allowed on an annual basis or on the basis of tenure of the staff? And every time a chargesheet is filed henceforth, will this 10% rule apply? Is the judiciary giving a blessing to public servants for violating their oath by giving them 10% leeway?” asked the judge.
“Unfortunately the SC judgment in Krishnanand Agnihotri’s case has been misinterpreted,” said lawyer Nundy. “The HC says “when there is disproportionate asset to the extent of 10%, the accused are entitled for acquittal.” Nowhere does the Supreme Court judgment lay this down as a rule. Agnihotri’s case was explicitly decided in the context of his own offence, which was relatively minor. If the High Court thought Jayalalithaa deserved the benefit for much larger amounts it needed to explain why,” she said.
Legal eagles say that this ruling by the High Court judge could set a bad precedent, one that encourages bribery. Especially when the Supreme Court earlier observed that corruption is “the enemy of the nation” and had exhorted courts to show “zero tolerance” towards this scourge.
“It is an accepted legal precedent,” insisted the AIADMK leader. “The High Court judge is right in his assessment.”
Retired Madras HC judge K Chandru agrees. “The Andhra precedent and the other precedent have been followed in many cases and officers have been let out on the basis of the discount, it has become a judicial precedent by the judge made law. One need not argue specifically on such issues and it is left to the discretion of the court,” he said.
IT returns as proof of income
The Karnataka High Court overturned the guilty verdict of the trial court by arguing that the lower court had not considered the Income Tax returns of the defendants. Judge Kumaraswamy then added this income declared in the IT returns of the defendants to clear them of a large chunk of disproportionate assets.
“There are many prior cases where the Supreme Court has said that in cases involving disproportionate assets, the source of the income must be explained convincingly,” said the retired judge. “Income tax returns are not reliable since they do not verify the source of the income. It is wrong to accept IT returns as proof of income unless the source of the income is proven to be valid,” he said.
Legal experts also point out that in many instances, the High Court has accepted IT returns which have been filed much later, as in the case of Namadhu MGR. On Page 875 of the HC order, the judge agrees that IT returns filed as an afterthought cannot be relied upon. “When Income Tax returns have not been filed for many years, it disentitles the assessee substantially. A doubt arises in the genuineness of the Income Tax returns. But when it is produced before the Income Tax department after a long time and is not produced when its production was warranted, it is a suspicious circumstance against the genuineness of the claim of the assessee in respect of this subscription item i.e. Namadhu MGR.”
Experts say that under the Nallammal vs State ruling of 1999, the term “income” has been clearly defined by the Supreme Court. “… ‘known sources of income’ means income received from any lawful source and such receipt has been intimated in accordance with the provisions of any law, rules or orders for the time being applicable to a public servant.” They say that this would, in effect, rule out IT returns as proof of income, since source of that income is not often verified while assessing returns.
However, Kumaraswamy proceeds to accept the income in part i.e. a sum of Rs 4 crores. “In effect, this is an afterthought explanation that anyone can give in a DA case,” said the retired judge. “So basically I can wait until a chargesheet is filed, then I can add all my unexplained income and file my IT returns after that – I will get away scot free. This judgment can be quoted in cases involving IT returns as well. Jurists should wake up to the impact this could have on the social structure, the economy and political structure. If afterthought IT returns are accepted, this means black money can easily come into the system and be laundered by filing a simple IT return,” he said.
“Under this head, the High Court may be wrong and there was no justification to ignore the findings given by Cunha,” said retired judge Chandru. “Sec 19 (3) (a) of the Prevention of Corruption Act does not allow an appellate court (in this case Karnataka HC) to take a different view from the special court in such matters unless there was a failure of justice,” he said.
The AIADMK says relying on IT returns is a legally sound decision. “The IT department is under an IT law and decisions taken by it are final,” said the AIADMK leader. “There is nothing wrong with relying on IT returns.”
Foreign remittance
Apart from the acceptance of IT returns which were filed belatedly, in the case of birthday gifts too, a curious case of a foreign remittance included in this list draws attention. This Rs 77 lakh remittance is the subject of a CBI investigation. The case was dismissed by the Madras High Court and the matter has been mired in legal technicalities and pending before the Supreme Court since 2012.
“Receiving gifts from foreign countries by a minister is completely prohibited by the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act (FERA),” said retired judge Chandru. “It can be accepted as an income for the purpose of the present case if it is shown that it was remitted by a bonafide person.”
The retired judge quoted the Supreme Court to ask whether this means the judiciary encourages politicians to take bribes in kind rather than cash. “If public servants are allowed to accept presents when they are prohibited under a penalty from accepting bribes, they would easily circumvent the prohibition by accepting the bribe in the shape of a present,” he said.
The AIADMK insists that this is an accepted precedent.
Other errors
The legal fraternity points out other errors in the judgement. One is that of a virtual lack of prosecution in the case. After the Supreme Court struck down the appointment of then Special Public Prosecutor Bhavani Singh in January 2015, a new SPP was appointed by the Karnataka government. BV Acharya was given only a day’s time to submit written arguments (“not more than 50 pages” as per Justice Deepak Mishra’s order) and oral arguments were not allowed.
Another error pointed out is that of the HC dismissing government rates for construction materials as being “too high” and thereby reducing the costs of construction and renovation in the properties of the defendants.
“In the absence of other proper evidence, only government rates i.e. rates prescribed by the Public Works Department can be taken into account,” said the retired judge. “It is standard practice in all courts,” he said.
Retired judge Chandru disagrees. “Judge Kumaraswamy even said that when he purchased tiles for constructing his house, it was almost the same as claimed by Jayalalithaa,” he said.
Rental income added by the HC too appears to be unexplained. On Page 833 of the HC order, the judge simply takes into account a sum of Rs 3.22 lakhs. A perusal of the trial court order shows that rental income has been taken into account. Legal experts say this is a mystifying figure.
Image of the judiciary
Jurists warn that the High Court verdict could set many precedents for erroneous verdicts in the future. They say that this is the first time a powerful politician has been brought to book by a trial court and therefore, an important order that should not be taken lightly.
“The Supreme Court has to remember that the world is watching India,” said the retired judge. “This judgment will bring down the image of the Indian judiciary in the world. The apex court must look into this closely and seriously,” he said.
“This case became significant because right from the beginning there were attempts to delay the hearing by opposing the constitution of a special court,” said Chandru. “Then the accused was two times Chief Minister during the investigation and the police was under her Home Ministry. Then the Supreme court intervention on the transfer of the case to another state, appointment of Special Public Prosecutor, fixing time limit for hearing the appeal and even fixing the quantity of stationary to be used for the written brief and not allowing oral arguments. All these make it a unique case involving corruption,” he said.
SC lawyer Nundy agrees. “It’s important that the Supreme Court hear this case in appeal,” she said. “In fact, given the level of detail and the vagaries of prosecution, it might also be a fit case to appoint an amicus curiae, or ‘friend of the court’, to make sure justice is not only done but seen to be done – beyond reasonable doubt,” she added.
And while the Karnataka government dithers over whether or not to head to the Supreme Court on appeal, the legal fraternity is certainly chafing at what has taken place.

Flawed Jayalalithaa Verdict Finally Heads to Supreme Court
BY SANDHYA RAVISHANKAR ON 01/06/2015

As the Karnataka cabinet decides to move the Supreme Court in appeal, The Wireunearths more errors in the High Court verdict acquitting Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa

The Karnataka cabinet today decided to move the Supreme Court on appeal against the recent Bangalore High Court verdict acquitting J. Jayalalithaa, her close aide Sasikala and two others in a disproportionate assets case.
“I welcome the decision of the Karnataka cabinet,” said BV Acharya, special public prosecutor in the case. “The government has accepted the legal opinions and recommendations given both by the Advocate General as well as by myself,” he said.
Following the decision taken by the Karnataka cabinet, state Law Minister TB Jayachandra told reporters that the cabinet decided to appeal on the basis of merits of the case. “The Supreme Court has specifically said that Karnataka has stepped into the shoes of Tamil Nadu and that the state is the sole prosecuting agency for all matters related to the case,” he said. “Legally on merits we have decided to file the appeal in Supreme Court. BV Acharya will continue to be the special public prosecutor for the appeal as well,” he added.
In his May 11 verdict, Judge CR Kumaraswamy of the Bangalore High Court acquitted the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and others of all charges in a 19-year-old corruption case. A trial court in Bangalore had, in September 2014, convicted them of holding unexplained wealth to the tune of Rs 53 crores.
The Wire had earlier this month reported on the four main inconsistencies in the High Court’s verdict which had allowed Jayalalithaa and others to be acquitted. But there is one more large and inexplicable error in the High Court verdict, say legal experts.
Since the fundamental determinant of the accused persons’ disproportionate assets hinges on their spending more money during the impugned period than their declared sources of income, the acquittal turned on the curious tabulation of expenditure made by Judge Kumaraswamy — especially the money spent on construction costs
On Page 797 in the High Court order acquitting Jayalalithaa – after a lengthy discussion of the arguments of the prosecution, the defence and the trial court order – Judge Kumaraswamy puts the costs incurred in the construction and renovation of various buildings at Rs 5,10,54,060 (Rs 5.1 crores).

Page 797 of Judge Kumaraswamy’s order
On comparing the High Court’s tally with the written submissions made by the defendants, in this case Jayalalithaa and her close aide Sasikala, a peculiar situation arises.
Item number 51 in the written submission of Jayalalithaa clearly states that she has admitted to expenditure of Rs 3,62,47,700 (Rs 3.6 crores) towards construction costs in Poes Garden and a farmhouse in Hyderabad.
Similarly, a tabular column detailed in the written submission of Sasikala shows that she and another accused, J Elavarasi,  have admitted to expenditure of Rs 5,05,59,419 (Rs 5 crores) towards construction costs of various buildings.
The sum total of the construction costs admitted to by the defence is thus Rs 8,68,07,119 (Rs 8.6 crores).
The Wire cross-checked this tally with the written submissions made by the defendants to the Karnataka High Court. Again, a tabular column under the heading “Value of the assets according to the accused under following heads as shown in Page 711 of the trial court judgement” shows clearly the defence claim on the amount spent towards construction costs. The defence clearly states that they have spent a total of Rs 8,60,59,261 (Rs 8.6 crores) in their submission to the High Court too.

Page 711 or Judge Cunha’s trial court judgment
Strangely enough, the High Court has decided that the defendants have in fact spent less than the amount that they have themselves admitted to. Judge Kumaraswamy has stated in his order that the defendants have spent only Rs 5.1 crores, reducing costs incurred by the defendants by about Rs 3.5 crores.
More costs incurred by the defendants would mean a higher amount of expenditure that would need to be explained to the courts. The trial court on Page 711 held that Jayalalithaa and others had spent Rs 22,53,92,344 (Rs 22.5 crores) on construction and renovation of various buildings. The defendants disagreed and said they had spent Rs 8.6 crores only. The Karnataka High Court disagreed with both and said Jayalalithaa and others had spent only Rs 5.1 crores.
“This is really strange,” said a retired High Court judge. “The judge has gone neither by what the prosecution says, nor by the defendants. This is a clear example of a case where the evidence needs to have been scrutinized thoroughly. Errors like this will creep in otherwise,” he said.

Page from Sasikala’s submission to the High Court
“This is not the only instance in the order where the High Court has gone beyond the defence,” said Vikram Hegde, a lawyer based in Karnataka. “Even the loan amount, if you look at it, is more than what the defence says.”
Legal experts argue that these errors could have been avoided if a proper prosecution had been made available during the trial period. In January this year, the Supreme Court struck down the appointment of Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) Bhavani Singh as “bad in law” and asked the Karnataka Government to appoint a new SPP. BV Acharya who was subsequently appointed, was given a day’s time to submit written arguments, with no verbal arguments being allowed.
“A proper prosecution would have made a huge difference to this case,” said Hegde. “First, it is an authentic source and second, the court would have had qualified assistance. The role of the prosecutor in a case like this is to take the court through the maze of evidence. The previous prosecutor did not do that in the High Court. I would go so far as to say that the previous prosecutor had not done his job even in the trial court. As a result, the judge has been at a disadvantage and he has not been able to apply his mind,” he said.
Other glaring errors in the judgement include arithmetic mistakes, duplication of loan income, and erroneous use of IT returns as a valid source of income. A fiery debate is also on within legal circles on whether the use of the 10% rule — the quantum of disproportionate assets an accused is allowed before it becomes an offence — as used in Krishnanand Agnihotri  is applicable at all to Jayalalithaa as her case involves crores of rupees with a charge of corruption while in office.
“It is in Jaya’s interest that she gets cleared by the Supreme Court,” said senior Supreme Court lawyer Rajeev Dhavan. “Without that, huge doubts will hang over the Bangalore High Court verdict. It appears that there are grievous blunders – whether in calculation, construction costs or wedding costs. There are huge doubts whether the 10% rule can really be applied when figures are larger than say, Rs 5 lakhs. This matter needs to be agitated before the Supreme Court for reasons of justice as well as reasons of error,” he said.
Jayalalithaa, who took charge once again as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister following her acquittal, will contest a by-election for a Tamil Nadu assembly seat on June 27 even as the decision on Karnataka’s appeal hangs over her head.
The Wire tried reaching a number of AIADMK leaders but none among them was  willing to comment either on the computational errors in the High Court order or the Karnataka government’s decision to move the Supreme Court.

Allegations of Corruption against Justice C.R. Kumaraswamy who acquitted Jayalalithaa By: Apoorva Mandhani

Justice C.R. Kumaraswamy, who acquitted Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa in the disproportionate assets case recently, has reportedly been accused of acquiring property without following certain norms. The allegations have been leveled by Karnataka Brastachara Nirmoolana Vedike, a group of RTI activists and advocates working towards eradication of corruption in the State. They have alleged that Justice Kumaraswamy had acquired properties in Bengaluru and Mysuru through Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), Karnataka Housing Board (KHB) and Karnataka State Judicial Employees Housing Society by violating certain norms in the site allotment rules and house building society bye-laws.

The group has posted the complaint to the President of India, the Chief Justice of India and the Chief Justice of Karnataka High Court, demanding a detailed enquiry and initiation of appropriate legal proceedings against the Judge. As per a Deccan Chronicle report, documents obtained under the Right to Information Act by Advocate A.R.S. Kumar reveal that Justice Kumaraswamy was allotted a flat No. 180, HIG B-3, First Floor, Block 100 in Kengeri 3rd stage by the Karnataka Housing Board in 1997 while he was serving as a district and sessions judge in Kolar. After this allotment, he submitted one more application to the board seeking allotment for a house under High Income Group (HIG) at Hootagally Colony in KHB Colony, Mysuru in 2001. While working as District and Sessions Judge in Bellary then, he got the Kengeri flat allotment cancelled and acquired the independent house in Hootagally Colony in Mysuru on exchange. In the year 2005, Kumaraswamy’s wife M.N. Nagarathnamma who had applied for a BDA site since 1987, in her 6th attempt got a plot measuring 30×40 allotted to her in Jnanabharathi Layout, Block 1 in Valagerahalli.

The group has alleged that in her application to the BDA, the Judge’s wife had concealed the facts about the allotment/cancellation of their Kengeri flat and acquisition of the independent house in Hootagally Colony in Mysuru by her husband. In 2005, Justice Kumaraswamy had made a voluntary disclosure on the Karnataka High Court website, which disclosed his flat in Divya Manor Apartments on Venkataswamy Raju Road in Palace Guttahalli in Kumarapark West. “In 2006, the Karnataka Judicial Employees Housing Building Co-Operative Society Limited went ahead and allotted site no. 176 measuring 4000 square feet in Judicial Layout, Phase 2 in Shivanagar to Kumaraswamy, violating allotment rules and bye-laws of the House Building Co-Operative Society,”

Advocate Kumar said. In May this year, Justice C.R. Kumaraswamy had allowed the appeals filed by Jayalalithaa and others and reversed the conviction ordered by the trial court. The Trial Court had convicted and sentenced Jayalalithaa and her 3 associates to four years in prison besides imposing a Rs 100 crore fine, on September 27 last year. You may read the judgment here. The Karnataka Government had filed a 2700 page petition on 23rd June saying that the Karnataka High Court’s judgment was a “farce”, and that “arithmetical errors made the judgment illegal”.

The petition has also added that the judgment had resulted in “the miscarriage of justice” and should be quashed. You may read the LiveLaw story here. You may read more news about Jayalalithaa’s DA Case here. Justice Kumaraswamy was elevated as a judge of the High Court in 2005 from the cadre of district judges. He was made a permanent judge in March 2007. With his retirement, Karnataka High Court is reduced to 50% of its sanctioned strength.

PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA.


To ,
Hon'ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship's Companion
Justices of the Supreme Court of India.



The Humble petition of the   Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :
1. Facts of the case:
a. Every human being , every Indian citizen  are equal  and guaranteed  equitable justice  as  their  human right and  Constitutional right.

b. In india  mafia of powers that be  and government  ensure  that  cases drag on for years , so that  poor litigant  either dies before  judgement day  or  opts out in  the middle.  Due to this delaying tactics  ,  many poor people  rather suffer injustice  instead of seeking justice in courts.  Mafia  indirectly forces  them  to  keep away from litigation.

c. Due to  occupation induced health problems  my health is deteriorating day by day , some of the  PILs concerning national security , public welfare   I  have  filed are  two decades old , still no justice in sight. Judges   not even  admitted the cases.

d. Actual working hours , working days for judges  are  less in india. Too many case adjournments ,  less number of judges , too many  holidays for  judges like  summer vacation , winter vacation , working hours less than 8 hours per day , etc.

e. Judges  work  less  but  enjoy  5 star  pay & perks at public expense.

f. Due  to  denial of justice  common people suffer injustice for more time or till  their death. Say  some falsely implicated persons  suffer in jail for years till their acquittal by  courts , some petty criminals  whose  crime  attracts  one year imprisonment   suffers in jail for  ten years. Because they are not well connected , cann’t afford  hi fi  advocates , bail fees.

g. Due  to  lethargic  judiciary  , some land  acquisition cases    drag on for years   land  looser  suffers  also  the   project  cost   escalates  by  hundreds  thousands  of  crores  of  rupees.

h. The lethargic  Judiciary  in  India  itself  is the biggest violator  of  common man’s  human rights , fundamental rights. It is the culprit responsible for  loss of thousands of crores of rupees to public exchequer   due  to  project  cost  escalations.

i. when  a common  man’s  human rights , human rights   is  violated  in  the  form  of  delaying  tactics  by court  of  law  , judiciary  , the presiding judge becomes a criminal  and liable to pay damages to the aggrieved.

j. The central government  and  state government  yearly  spend  thousands of  crores of rupees  unnecessarily  like  purchasing  new cars  for  ministers , renovation , interior  decorations  of  minister’s  bungalows ,  foreign jaunts , etc. These are  all not  priority one  spending. Out  of  these  spending   how many  more  judges  could be appointed , paid salaries.

k. when  compared to  project  cost  escalations  of  thousands of  crores  of rupees  caused  due  to  case delays  , is it not wise  on the part of government to  appoint  requisite number of judges  with  additional budget burden of  few  crores  of  rupees.

l. Both  central  and  state governments  are  the biggest  litigants  in the country.

m. Government is manipulating  judicial process by  denying finance  to  appoint more judges , to create more court infrastructures.

n. We common people are  imposed  with time limits  to mandatorily comply with,  in our interactions with other public , with government authorities , with courts itself. For our failures we common people are penalized.

0. Paradoxically , there is no mandatory  time limits  for judges , public servants to finish  specific works concerning public. In most of the cases they adopt delaying tactics  , deny justice still they  are not penalized and  don’t  pay any compensation to the aggrieved public.

p. Due  to delaying tactics  of judges , many  anti national crimes , terror attacks took place  and still continuing  which could have been  well averted in time  if judges  took timely action. For helping  mafia  by  the way of delayed  justice , mafia rewards some of those judges with post retirement postings , promotions , site allotments , etc.

q. The Judiciary has the right , authority , power to order  government  to  allocate finance for  appointing judges , setting up court  infrastructure. If the  government  gives   ruse  of  no  money  in it’s account , courts can  definitely monitor  spending of government , cut down on  waste , non-priority spending of government , divert such money for  appointment of judges , court infrastructure development. No  need  for  CJI  to  weep before prime minister.  Judges  themselves  never  consider  the sufferings  of  weeping  litigants.  It shows the weakness  of  CJI and  a shame to our nation.

We  once again appeal to Honourable CJI , Supreme Court of India  to take  action  on the following PILs  ,  to answer the show cause notice  and to order the concerned public servants  to answer RTI questions.  The officials of  SCI don’t even have  etiquette , decorum to reply to our letters. Some of  my  appeals  are  two decades old.

     Remember  the basic fact  you are all enjoying 5 star pay , perks  at the expense of public and owe your duty to public.  Are  not  judges  drawing  huge  salaries , 5 star  pay , perks on time without fail ,  on 01st of every month? Have they forgotten to take salary in 25 years , but they keep cases pending for  20 - 25  years.  CJI   weeping   before   Prime Minister shows the weakness of  the judiciary & a shame to the nation.  Judges  never consider  sufferings of  weeping  litigants in cases.   Judges themselves are responsible for  long pending cases.

   Don’t  refer  the case  to police as they don’t  have power , authority to enquire high & mighty people , judges  &  previously they have failed  and  the case  is  to subject  some police officials , judges themselves to enquiry. Referring the case to police  is nothing but attempt to bury the truth , only  supreme court monitored  transparent enquiry by CBI  is right.

   Delaying  tactics of  judges is only  helping the criminals , anti nationals and terrorists. Please  refer  below mentioned  sample cases  of  Justice delayed for years to innocents , sufferings  of their family members. No judges , police are bothered. Are not the the respective judges , police  guilty of defaming those innocent persons , spoiling their livelihood , gross violation of their civil rights ? why not those guilty judges , police are paying compensation to victims of their wrong actions ?  But  the very same  guilty judges , police are  SHAMELESSLY  enjoying  5 star pay perks from public exchequer  for  decades.

  Bail system , Parole system are in favour of rich crooks in india , cases of rich crooks move at faster  pace  wheeas the cases of poor which are although older still continues. Judiciary , it’s system are biased. Consider the  sample cases of sanjay dutt , salman khan , jayalaita. Our judges , Police  don’t have spine to  enforce rule of law on rich crooks , while they put full  force , might on poor innocents.



If  anything untoward happens to me or  to my dependents Chief Justice of India  together with jurisdiction police &  District Collector  will be responsible for it.



Rot in judiciary is decades old. Honourable CJI sir , weeping is not right constitution of india has given you  the authority , TAKE ACTION DO YOUR DUTY.  People , History will remember you forever with respect. Anyway you are getting very good 5 star pay & perks , will also get decent pension after retirement from government. First  forget about post retirement  postings , discretionary allotment of sites , etc from government then you can work fearlessly. Both central & state governments are  biggest litigants in the country , IAS babus make wrong application , interpretation of laws  leading to litigations. Start by clearing the rotten eggs within the judiciary. When judiciary & police  in a country strictly uphold law , work impartially that country  surpasses even heaven.

Do remember on the D Day , in the   Court of Almighty  everybody CJI , Judges , prime ministers , common man alike  has to bow his head. In who’s  court there is no match fixing , no techinicalities , no vociferous hi fi advocates , no bias based on caste , religion , region , community , etc , only  straight simple account of wrongs & rights. Guess  his judgement in your case. GOD  BLESS US  ALL.



2. Question(s) of Law:

Is it right for  judges  to deny  justice . is it right on the part of judges to delay justice  under various ruses to common man , violate their human rights , fundamental rights.

3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , Prosecution of  judges , police , public servants   responsible for  case delays.

PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF
MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA.

To ,
Hon'ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship's Companion

Justices of the Supreme Court of India. The Humble petition of the Petitioner above named.
MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :
1. Facts of the case:
Our whole hearted respects to honest few in judiciary , parliament & public service. Our salutes to them , due to honest efforts of those few noble persons only at least democracy is surviving in India.
A . "Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed." Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt people’s representatives , police , public servants & Judges. Some of the below mentioned judges fall among the category of churchill’s men – Rogues , Rascals & Freebooters.
B . As per the preamble of the constitution of India all the people , all Indian citizens are equal in every respect , equally entitled to justice , equally responsible to uphold constitution . Only People , Citizens of India are supreme No Judges , No Ministers , etc are supreme. Judges , ministers , president etc are all public servants constitutionally mandated to SERVE the public , NOT to master over them. Even after 69 years of independence these judges , ministers have not come out of colonial hangover instead become worse treating general public as their servants.
C . Every institution in india is directly or indirectly accountable to people , however judiciary alone is not transparent not giving accounts of it’s actions to people.
D . Judges enjoy 5 star pay & perks , making merry at the cost of people’s money , public exchequer , but are not giving accounts of their actions to people , not transparent to the public eye. They are not even honouring RTI applications seeking information about actions of judges , because corrupt judges will be caught red handed.
E . Judges are not super humans nor super brains nor from moon or mars , they are ordinary mortals from the society around us and just like us capable of doing good work as well falling prey to human lures like bribe , corruption , favoritism , etc.
F. Judges think they are sole custodians of constitution of india , in fact every citizen of india is a custodian of constitution of india.
G . Collegium of judges is nothing but a coterie , a MAFIA proof - unfit corrupt persons like dinakaran , another judge involved in mysore roost resort sex scandal being selected by SCI collegium promoted to the apex court. It is just the tip of iceberg , behind the judicial veil of secrecy many corrupt judges are hiding. Hereby , I challenge Honourable supreme court of india that subject to conditions I will bring to book corrupt judges who are hiding behind the veil. Are you ready ?
H . When compared to some corrupt judges who are nothing but criminals , a drain , parasites on our public exchequer , society , the child workers who are hard working earning less than rupees 32 a day are far better , great human beings.
I . Ofcourse when the court identifies that intentions of an act of parliament as unconstitutional , it has the right to strike it down to uphold the supremacy of constitution. NJAC Act passed by parliament was in fact filling a legal vaccum about accountability & selection of judges and in turn strengthening the constitution of india. But by striking down NJAC Act of government of india , supreme court of india is weakening constitution of india , making contempt of parliament , constitution & all Indian citizens. If at all supreme court was really sincere it could have suggested more alternatives for transparent , accountable judiciary with appropriate transparent provisions for guarding judicial independence.
J . When government of india passed unconstitutional acts like land acquisition bill , special status to Kashmir , against uniform civil code promoted unequal differing civil laws for various religion people and Bhopal gas victims act , nuclear energy act , etc , did it not dawn on supreme court of india that it is the sole custodian of constitution ? then why not SCI strike down those unconstitutional parliamentary acts ?
K . It is the duty of Supreme Court of India to Protect , Guard the constitutional rights of every Indian citizens . Since 25 years I am appealing to SCI about issues concerning public welfare , national security , etc and as a result suffering injustices , my constitutional rights , human rights are repeatedly violated but SCI is mum even when repeated appeals were made to it. Paradoxically , after these appeals for justice , I have suffered more injustices , attempts on my life were made , physically assaulted , livelihood / jobs were denied , news publication closed , press accreditation denied , received threatening calls , blank calls, even to date rough elements follow us , rough elements scout near home at mid night. Does not these indicate some ties between rough elements & SCI Judges ?
L . Eventhough the information is readily available with SCI , information was denied citing unavailability. If at all information is not truly available , why didn’t the CPIO TRANSFER rti application to concerned departments of SCI , Ministry of Law , Justice , Respective High Courts , etc.
M . Does not court administarative officer posess SERVICE REECORDS of each employee including judges. If not on what basis they give promotions , transfers , salary , etc to judges ? The person who posess SR can give infor mation about guilty judges. Why CPIO not asking that person to share infor mation ?
N . If a commonman is alleged of a petty crime he is immediately arrested , put behind bars. Police spend thousands of rupees for investigation to prosecute that petty criminal. Judges spend hours to hear that case & prepare judgements running into tens of pages sometimes even over & above thousand pages. Fine . When the very same police & judge themselves committ grave crimes detrimental to national security , integrity , etc , no arrests , no prosecution only cover-up , WHY ? Are Judges & Police above Law ? Is Judge’s MAFIA at play ?
O . The action of CPIO SCI amounts to cover up of judges & their crimes. Thereby , CPIO is also committing a crime. With respect to previous RTI Appeals also CPIO & RTI First Appellate Authority SCI have repeatedly committed crimes by covering up judges & their crimes. Billions of indians are barely sustaining on a single piece meal a day , we lower middle class people toiling hard to earn a few hundreds of rupees but still paying tax. Is it not shame to them / shame to JUDGEs that they draw pay & perks amounting to lakhs of rupees from our money , from taxes paid by us still not do their constitutional duties properly.
P . When a Judge Himself Commits Crime , When a POLICE Himself robs , Murders ….

The public servants & the government must be role models in law abiding acts , for others to emulate & follow. if a student makes a mistake it is excusable & can be corrected by the teacher. if the teacher himself makes a mistake , all his students will do the same mistake. if a thief steals , he can be caught , legally punished & reformed . if a police himself commits crime , many thieves go scot-free under his patronage. even if a police , public servant commits a crime , he can be legally prosecuted & justice can be sought by the aggrieved.
just think , if a judge himself that too apex court of the land itself commits crime - violations of RTI Act , constitutional rights & human rights of public and obstructs the public from performing their constitutional fundamental duties , what happens ?

it gives a booster dose to the rich & mighty , those in power , criminals in public service to commit more crimes. that is exactly what is happening in india. the educated public must raise to the occasion & peacefully , democratically must oppose this criminalization of judiciary , public service. then alone , we can build a RAM RAJYA OF MAHATMA GANDHI'S DREAM.

I have shown in the following attachment how justice is bought , purchased , manipulated in INDIA with actual cases. Just see the recent examples of supreme court judges involved in sexual assault case & ROOST Resort Mysore Sex scandal involving judges , if any ordinary fellow had committed the same crimes he would have been hauled over the coal fire. Just take another recent example of Prisoner Movie actor sanjay dutt , TADA provisions were diluted by the judge to favour him and now he is getting parole week after week while the ordinary convicts never get a single parole throught their sentence. What Brilliant Judges , what brilliant police sirji.

2. Question(s) of Law:
Are Judges above Law & can go scot free ? Can judges cheat , rape , swindle others and go scot free without legal prosecution ? Why guilty CJIs were not legally prosecuted in a fair & transparent manner ?
3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , free expression & protection to life & liberty. Transparency , accountability in selection & functioning of Judges.
4. Averment:
GIVE WHAT ACTION HAS BEEN TAKEN AGAINST THE GUILTY JUDGES MENTIONED IN THE BELOW MENTIONED WEB SITES & FOLLOWING ARTICLES.

We salute honest few in public service , Judiciary , police , parliament & state legislative assemblies. our whole hearted respects to them. HEREBY , I DO HUMBLY REQUEST YOU TO GIVE ME WRITTEN STATEMENTS / ANSWERS TO THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS – WHICH IN ITSELF ( ie answers ) ARE THE INFORMATION SOUGHT BY ME. HERE WITH I AM SEEKING NOT THE OPINIONS ABOUT SOME HYPOTHETICAL ISSUES , BUT YOUR OFFICIAL STAND , LEGAL STAND ON ISSUES WHICH ARE OF FREQUENT OCCURRENCE WHICH ARE VIOLATING PEOPLE’S FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & HUMAN RIGHTS. WE DO HAVE HIGHEST RESPECTS FOR JUDICIARY & ALL PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS , THIS IS AN APPEAL FOR TRUTH , INFORMATION SO THAT TO APPREHEND CORRUPT FEW IN PUBLIC SERVICE, WHO ARE AIDING & ABETTING TERRORISM , UNDERWORLD & CRIMINALS. I HAVE SHOWN IN DETAIL WITH LIVE , ACTUAL CASES , EXAMPLES , HOW INDIAN LEGAL SYSTEM IS MANIPULATED BY CRIMINALS WITHIN JUDICIARY , POLICE , PROSECUTION , ETC. READ DETAILS AT :

Why NOT 3rd degree Torture of Corrupt Doctors , Police & Judges
http://e-clarionofdalit.blogspot.in/2015/10/why-not-3rd-degree-torture-of-doctors.html#links ,
https://sites.google.com/site/sosevoiceforjustice/3rd-degree-torture-by-doctors-police ,

Hereby , we do request CPIO O/O Honourable Chief Justice of India , Supreme Court of India , New Delhi to answer the following questions in public interest , for safeguarding national security , National unity & integrity & to legally apprehend anti-nationals , criminals within the judiciary & police. Judges are not superior human beings , some of them have even became judges through devious means other than merit , integrity. Judges are public servants drawing salary & perks from public exchequer and accountable to public as any other common man is.
We salute our freedom fighters , military personnel & martyrs for all the sacrifices made by them. Let us build a strong , Secular , Democratic India by getting rid off few corrupt elements , anti nationals , traitors among public servants , among judiciary & among police who are greater threat to India’s unity & integrity than Pakistani terrorists or chinese military.
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 honourable supreme court of india , for a Supreme Court monitored CBI Enquiry into this whole issue as karnataka police are helpless , they don't have legal powers to prosecute high & mighty , constitutional functionaries. They have not even enquired the guilty VVIPs even once however Under pressure from higher-ups they repeatedly called me the complainant to police station took statements from me all for closing the files.
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.
The Petitioner has sent many letters / appeals / petitions to supreme court of india & other courts through e-mail , DARPG website & through regular mail requesting them to consider those as PILs. But none of them were admitted , even acknowledgement for receipts were not given. See How duty conscious ,our judges are & see how our judges are sensitive towards life , liberty of citizens , commonmen & see how careless our judges are towards anti national crimes , crimes worth crores of rupees.

That the present petitioner has not filed any other petition (which are admitted by courts) in any High Court or the Supreme Court of India on the subject matter of the present petition.

PRAYER:

In the above premises, it is prayed that this Hon'ble Court may be pleased:

(i) 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.
(ii) Hereby , I do request the honourble supreme court of india to make public all the proceedings of supreme court collegiums and correspondence between SCI , President’s office & government of india regarding selection of judges. To make public all the eligibility criteria followed for selection of judges and who filled what criteria , who didn’t fill which criteria and the final ranking.
(iii) Hereby , I do request the honourble supreme court of india to uphold the constitution of india and to protect the constitutional rights of all Indian citizens including mine.
(iv) Hereby , I do request the honourble supreme court of india to uphold the constitution of india , to protect the constitutional rights , human rights of all Indian citizens including mine and to enable , facilitate all Indian citizens to perform their Fundamental Duties as per constitution.
(v) to pass such other orders and further orders as may be deemed necessary on the facts and in the circumstances of the case.

PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA.

To ,
Hon'ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship's Companion
Justices of the Supreme Court of India. The Humble petition of the
Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :

1. Facts of the case:
"Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for  power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed." Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt public servants.
2. As a result of fighting for public causes , public good I have individually sufferred numerous injustices and still sufferring injustices. My newspaper publication was illegally closed down , my web news paper not given with press accredition , my job oppurtunities in RBI Note press , PES Engineering college , NIE Engineering college , Mysore district court , etc snatched away illegally , I was beaten up , attempts on my life were made even after bringing threats to my life were brought to notice of supreme court of india. See how duty duty conscious our supreme court judges are ? all these sufferrings for public causes I have raised & to silence me.

2. Question(s) of Law:
Are police & Judges above law ? Can Judges & Police Comitt crimes , go scot free ? Can Judges & Police intentionally neglect ( to aid criminals ) their duties , while shamelessly drawing tens of thousands of rupees monthly salary & perks on time without fail from public exchequer.

3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , Prosecution of corrupt public servants , corrupt judges , corrupt police. Request for supreme court orders to judges & police to perform their duties properly.

4. Averment:
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.

Read the actual case details at following web pages involving judges & police in crimes. The criminal network , corruption net work , MAFIA of Judges & Police is strong , whenever one of their members is accussed , others white wash , bury the case in the name of investigation. Transparent , impartial investigation as in the case of common man is not at all done.
We respect the honest few in judiciary , police & public service. Those honest few are also becoming parties to crime by becoming silent , by not doing their duties , by not arresting their corrupt colleagues. Their by they are covering up crime & aiding criminals to commit more crimes.
Due to these type of corrupt judges & corrupt police innocents, commoners land in jails and some are even hanged for crimes not commited by them , while the rich crooks roam free.
The corrupt judges & corrupt police are shameless people , parasites in our society. They take tens of thousands of rupees monthly salary & perks from our money , tax payer’s money and still don’t do their duties properly. The judges give sermons , judgements running into hundreds of pages when their own folk is in the dock , caught for crimes they intentionally fall silent. The police use filthy language , use 3rd degree torture against commoners , innocents when their own folk is in the dock , caught for crimes , dacoity they don’t use filthy language nor they use 3rd degree torture . Even in fit cases where alleged Judges & Police can be given death sentence , they are spared , why ?
Please don’t send police again to my home neither refer my case to police. They don’t have practical powers to inquire high & mighty judges. They will come to my home , call me to police station , will take a statement from me & will close the file by sending it to head quarters. This has happened previously number of times. If you are honest in intent , Please constitute an impartial , transparent empowered Inquiry committee to deal this case.
The judges , police & public servants intentionally delay taking action in cases and withhold giving information in time , so that evidences are buried in time , gets destroyed and time lapse occurs resulting in the case becoming time barred. Some of PILs submitted by us are 20 years old concerning national security and I was also eligible for free legal aid at the time of application - still the judges & police didn’t take appropriate action however they shamelessly took thousands of rupees salary , perks from our money. Till date no justice in sight instead more injustices meted out to me as a result of this crusade. THESE INCAPABLE JUDGES & POLICE ARE UNFIT FOR THE POSITIONS THEY OCCUPY , IF THEY CANN’T PROVIDE JUSTICE ATLEAST GIVE ME MERCY DEATH.
I ,NAGARAJA.M.R. hereby do declare that information given above are true to the best of my knowledge & belief. If i am repeatedly called to police station or else where for the sake of investigations , the losses i do incurr as a result like loss of wages , transportation , job , etc must be borne by the government. prevoiusly the police / IB personnel repeatedly called me the complainant (sufferer of injustices) to police station for questioning , but never called the guilty culprits , rich crooks , criminals even once to police station for questioning , as the culprits are high & mighty . this type of one sided questioning must not be done by police or investigating agencies . if anything untoward happens to me or to my family members like loss of job , meeting with hit & run accidents , loss of lives , death due to improper medical care , etc , the jurisdictional police together with above mentioned accussed public servants will be responsible for it. Even if criminal nexus levels fake charges , police file fake cases against me or my dependents to silence me , this complaint is & will be effective.
If I or my family members or my dependents are denied our fundamental rights , human rights , denied proper medical care for ourselves , If anything untoward happens to me or to my dependents or to my family members - In such case Chief Justice of India together with the jurisdictional revenue & police officials will be responsible for it , in such case the government of india is liable to pay Rs. TWO crore as compensation to survivors of my family. if my whole family is eliminated by the criminal nexus ,then that compensation money must be donated to Indian Army Welfare Fund. Afterwards , the money must be recovered by GOI as land arrears from the salary , pension , property , etc of guilty police officials , Judges , public servants & Constitutional fuctionaries.
The Petitioner has sent many letters / appeals / petitions to supreme court of india & other courts through e-mail , DARPG website & through regular mail requesting them to consider those as PILs. But none ofthem were admitted , even acknowledgement for receipts were not given. See How duty conscious ,our judges are & see how our judges are sensitive towards life , liberty of citizens , commonmen & see howcareless our judges are towards anti national crimes , crimes worth crores of rupees. That the present petitioner has not filed any other petition (which are admitted by courts) in any High Court or the Supreme Court of India on the subject matter of the present petition.

PRAYER:
In the above premises, it is prayed that this Hon'ble Court may be pleased:
a . 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.

....Respondents

PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 12 to ARTICLE 35 & ARTICLE 51A OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA FOR ISSUANCE OF A WRIT IN THE NATURE OF MANDAMUS UNDER ARTICLE 32 & ARTICLE 226 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA.

To ,
Hon'ble The Chief Justice of India and His Lordship's Companion
Justices of the Supreme Court of India. The Humble petition of the
Petitioner above named.

MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH :
1. Facts of the case:
"Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for  power and will be lost in political squabbles . A day would come when even air & water will be taxed." Sir Winston made this statement in the House of Commons just before the independence of India & Pakistan. Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt public servants.
2. As a result of fighting for public causes , public good I have individually sufferred numerous injustices and still sufferring injustices. My newspaper publication was illegally closed down , my web news paper not given with press accredition , my job oppurtunities in RBI Note press , PES Engineering college , NIE Engineering college , Mysore district court , etc snatched away illegally , I was beaten up , attempts on my life were made even after bringing threats to my life were brought to notice of supreme court of india. See how duty duty conscious our supreme court judges are ? all these sufferrings for public causes I have raised & to silence me.

2. Question(s) of Law:
Are police & Judges above law ? Can Judges & Police Comitt crimes , go scot free ?

3. Grounds:
Requests for equitable justice , Prosecution of corrupt public servants , corrupt judges , corrupt police.
4. Averment:
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.

The Petitioner has sent many letters / appeals / petitions to supreme court of india & other courts through e-mail , DARPG website & through regular mail requesting them to consider those as PILs. But none ofthem were admitted , even acknowledgement for receipts were not given. See How duty conscious ,our judges are & see how our judges are sensitive towards life , liberty of citizens , commonmen & see howcareless our judges are towards anti national crimes , crimes worth crores of rupees. That the present petitioner has not filed any other petition (which are admitted by courts) in any High Court or the Supreme Court of India on the subject matter of the present petition.

PRAYER:
In the above premises, it is prayed that this Hon'ble Court may be pleased:

a . 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.
