Latest Serious Developments

A brief note about the origin of threats
My husband's report given to the Chief Secretary in 2005 about serious irregularities in the energy sector is the root cause of the problems we are facing since June 2006.My husband's action of declaring assets to be given to any citizen created many enemies in august 2006. My husband may be the only IAS officer in the country to have done so.( Two other IAS officers even though expressed their willingness , have not given details of their assets to be given to the public.) On 27/3/07 I was threatened and I was told the consequences my husband would face if I did not do as was told on that day. . On 5/4/08, a retired Chief Secretary told us that the persons against whom we are fighting would decimate us. Further the then Chief Secretary on 23/5/07 not only threatened my husband in my presence but he made it clear that he shields the corrupt. Since then the threats have increased. There are continuous threats to this effect , but they have not been carried out as I started this web page to protect my husband. But on 27/12/08 these people had almost succeeded and my husband was left in an unconscious state in his own office without being attended to for more than 3 hours. It is not 7 transfer orders received in 9 month period which is threatening us but what happened subsequent to my husband assuming charge which are more seriously harming us. Most of these threats are against my husband's efforts to introduce transparent systems and for introducing systems to fight corrupt practices by involving public. Since last two years all unimaginable hurdles have been put making even normal functioning very difficult. Inspite of it my husband came out with new methods of delivering services to the people and to improve the quality of work. At the same time efforts have been made to save money by effectively plugging leakages.

Latest Developments

My husband was posted as Administrator, CADA, Belgaum, even after the serious threats to his life were informed to the Government. He however, reported there on August 6th 2007. His arrival at Belgaum was also not properly communicated. He was seriously threatened immediately after landing in Belgaum. Since then, very serious things have happened on 11/9/07, 4/11/07, 12/12/07, 27/12/07 and 1/2/08. My husband has complained with Belgaum police on these and even other such incidents. No doubt he was provided with a gunman, but this has not stopped the threats. A very serious incident which happened on 11/9/08 which clearly indicated my husband's life was under threat from some known quarter, has not been investigated till today, even though my husband lodged a complaint immediately after the incident.

My husband for his own safety was forced to live in the office itself as his official quarters was leased out to a private Trust. Even after informing the Government about his inability to rent accommodation because of security reasons, he has not been provided with any accommodation . On the other hand the Department which has accepted his deputation asked the District Administration to provide some accommodation anywhere in Belgaum District , least caring for his safety and not at all bothered about how he can function if accommodation is given in some other Taluk . This makes it very clear his posting was not done keeping public interest in mind. This fact was repeatedly brought to the notice of the Government by my husband more than nine months back. Another suggestion is that my husband has to wait till a building is constructed for this purpose. Here again it is not clear where he should stay till that time. In view of the increased threats and the Police not bothering to find the people behind my husband's threats, both my husband and I have asked various authorities to entrust the investigation to the CBI. It is to be noted that my son and I are also not free from threats. My husband and I have filed more than 15 complaints with the Police in Belgaum and Bangalore The Police are yet to take action on these complaints.

In view of these ,on 14/2/08 ,I had sought appointment with the new Chief Secretary to inform him about the serious threats faced by my husband . Even after almost 40 days I am yet to be heard by the Chief Secretary. I don’t want people who shirked responsibility from not being held accountable. I have been keeping the Karnataka Lokayukta continuously informed about these developments. Another serious incident which happened on 27/12/08 when my husband was taken to a hospital in an unconscious state has yet to be investigated. Details of the incident are not disclosed for our own safety.

To bring out these, I am giving an extract from my letter addressed to the Chief Secretary on 25/3/08.

//On 19/3/08 I had expressed my anxiety and fear over not getting an appointment with the Chief Secretary even after 35 days of making repeated request. But certain things which have happened after 20/3/08 (or which I have got information about) is forcing me to write this as each day delay can have grave consequences to my family.
I have some information which I want to give only to the Chief Secretary as it can prevent my husband from getting harmed in Belgaum. All I need is just two minutes. It is in this regard
I wanted Government to entrust CBI to take up investigation

On 20/3/08 morning I informed the Deputy Administrator, CADA, Belgaum about not getting an appointment from the Chief Secretary even after 35 days and even after making an RTI application. I requested him to inform my husband in Belgaum to be extremely cautious because of my own experience on 27/12/07. …… It is such attitude of those who should be pro-actively
responding, not bothering to act in any manner which is worrying me a lot.

I also learnt that the Water Resources Department had stayed all decision taken by the CADA in its meeting held on 18/1/08 to help the farmers. Under such circumstances, I don’t understand
the purpose of the Government continuing my husband in Belgaum except to seriously physically harm him and to increase the threat to us here in Bangalore. It may be recalled that the Minister for Irrigation had, as early as in August 2007 asked DPAR to take back my husband's deputation and subsequently the Water Resources Department had sent at least 10 letters to recall the deputation in view of difficulties faced by my husband in discharging his duties at Belgaum. I have taken all these information under the RTI Act. Instead of acting on these letters, DPAR went on issuing notice after notice to my husband calling for explanation for trivial things including his immediate departure from Belgaum when his mother expired. All these are being done by DPAR by suppression and distortion of facts to shield the corrupt as my husband is fighting against
corruption. Such discrimination has been noticed since June 2006 as revealed under the RTI Act.

I am sure that Chief Secretary is fully aware of the fact that out of six CADAs in the State, my husband is the only IAS officer posted as Administrator. I am also sure that Chief Secretary is
aware that 18 out of 20 predecessors of my husband were not IAS officers. I have obtained this under the RTI Act. Only two IAS officers had gone there because of their own personal interest
(one went because of his children's education and for completing the construction of house in Belgaum, his wife and children even today stay in Belgaum. In another case the IAS officer was posted as his wife was posted as DC, Belgaum and he was also transferred after his wife was transferred). The official accommodation of Administrator, CADA has been leased to a private Trust(probably assuming that no Administrator would function from Belgaum) In spite of my husband informing about not being able to take a private accommodation on rent as he faces threat, Water Resources Department just asked DC, Belgaum to provide accommodation
somewhere in Belgaum District without bothering about his safety and how he can function. The latest recommendation is that PWD has suggested constructing a house suitable to my husband's grade without telling where he should live till then. As I write this my husband is moving from one location to another at least three times a week. Regarding other harassments to my husband over the last 21 months period, I have given them in detail in other pages in this website

My husband’s repeated request to refer his case to a Committee suggested by Cabinet Secretary, Government of India in 2004 subsequent to the murder of the whistle-blower Sri Satyendra Dubey have been ignored till today. The information obtained under the RTI Act clearly reveals that whenever my husband attempted to introduce transparent systems or fight corrupt practices, he has been harassed.

After the 23/5/07 incident, each action of mine has resulted in harassment of my husband. This is clearly brought out in the date of issue of notices by the DPAR and the dates on which I sought information under the RTI Act. Because of such harassment even when he faced serious threats my husband reported such incidents to everyone except the DPAR. It is really hurting me
that the Chief Secretary is unable to find just two minutes time to hear the serious threats being faced by us even after 40 days of making a request. I request the Chief Secretary to immediately act to reduce some of the risks to our lives ….//
