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.

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

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

Karnataka Lokayukta extortion racket case: SIT
files chargesheet, names 6 people
The Special Investigation Team (SIT), which
probed the allegations of an extortion racket and insider corruption within the
Lokayukta or ombudsman of the state, filed its first chargesheet before the
Lokayukta court on Wednesday in which it arraigned six accused persons.
The six accused named by the SIT are joint
commissioner and public relations officer (PRO) of Lokayukta Syed Riaz, city-based
realtor and middleman Ashok Kumar, Lokayukta justice Y Bhaskar Rao's son Y
Ashwin Rao, self-styled RTI activist V Bhaskar and two private Kannada TV
channel journalists Shankare Gowda and Srinivas Gowda. All six has been charged
under Sections 8, 9 and 10 of Prevention of Corruption Act and Sections 385
(extortion), 419 (cheating), 201(causing disappearance of evidence) and 120 B
(criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code.
The 1545-page chargesheet contains the
statements of 157 witnesses, including justice Y Bhaskar Rao and Lokayukta
superintendent of police Sonia Narang. The alleged scam came to light after
Narang wrote to the Registrar about the complaint she received that someone
from the Lokayukta office demanded Rs 1 crore as bribe to avoid a raid.
The complainant was Bengaluru Urban district
executive engineer M N Krishnamurthy who works with the Public Works Department
(PWD). The chargesheet contains a large number of documents, mostly taken from
the Call Detail Records (CDRs) of the accused and the complainant.
The chargesheet claimed that the accused
confessed to the crime during their interrogation. One of the accused, Ashok
Kumar, who acted as an agent to Ashwin Rao also told the investigators that it
was Riaz who guided them to call Krishnamurthy to come to Lokayukta office and
placed the demand for Rs 25 lakh, scaling down from the original demand of Rs 1
crore, as bribe to clear him from corruption case.
Ashwin Rao, Lokayukta's son, was in July
arrested by SIT. The issue had raised a storm both inside and outside the state
legislature and there was growing pressure from Opposition parties and various
organisations for removal of Rao.
case throws up more big names
THE inquiry into the extortion racket at the Karnataka Lokayukta
office has taken an interesting turn with the probe revealing business links
between one of the main accused and the son of the state’s top cop, Director
General of Police ( DGP) Omprakash.
ago, the Special Investigation Team ( SIT), which is probing the extortion
racket worth ` 200 crore, arrested N Narasimhamurthy, a clerk at the office of
the state police headquarters where the DGP’s office is also located.
Narasimhamurthy is accused of facilitating payments to the Lokayukta office
from corrupt officers.
Now, it has
been revealed that the DGP’s son Karthikesh had business links with
Narasimhamurthy. Karthikesh and Narasimhamurthy’s brother- in- law Ashwath

DGP’s son. Incidentally, the local villagers had complained against the quarry

Control Board allegedly gave a clean chit to the quarry.

Karnataka DGP in Dock Over Son’s Stone Quarry Unit
the villages bordering Bengaluru feel they have nowhere to go. A stone quarry
that is co-owned by the son of the state police chief is the bane of their
lives. But when they sought a Lokayukta inquiry, little happened. Even less
after Justice Y Bhaskar Rao took over, they allege.
last five years, a stone crusher, co-owned with the son of state police chief
Om Prakash, has been wreaking havoc with their lives, a man from
Gavinagamangala village in Ramnagar district toldThe News Minute.
who requested anonymity, said that there were two stone crushing units in the
district initially, started in around 2010-11. Some years later, they were
merged into one firm.
to villagers, the unit which works with granite, only has license from the
mines and geology department to carry out stone-cutting operations. However,
the man alleges that the unit is carrying out crushing and blasting operations
eight villages in the vicinity of the crushing unit have been facing numerous
problems since the unit was set up. These include Matta, Veeregoudanadoddi,
Maregooudandoddi, Ramakalpalya, Attingere. He says villagers have to put up
with dust, noise, agricultural land and crops, mango plantations, water tanks
and residential areas which were being affected.
Prakash’ son Karthikesh and his business partner Ashwath had been running two
separate units in the area since 2009, according to a Hindu report, which quoted Om Prakash.
Denying any illegal activity on his son’s part, Om Prakash maintained that he
had nothing to do with the business.
my son is 30 years old and I have no bearing or connection to his business

resident of Gavinagamangala who spoke to The
Hindu said that in 2011 or

complaint with the Lokayukta office.
there was some action. But since the new Lokayukta took over, we have heard
nothing on the case.
there were any other complaints, the man said:
complained with everybody, the home secretary, IGP, DIG, even the chief
minister’s office. We never got an acknowledgement. We have gone to the police
also, many times, but they never registered a complaint.
