    Condolenscene for Mr Satish Shetty, RTI Activist


    Hi All,

    Please join me in offering deepest condolences to the family of martyr & RTI activist Mr. Satish Shetty, who was murdered in cold blood at Pune, 2 days ago.

    He was a eminent RTI activist and had exposed many corruption cases through info obtained from RTI. However, his sacrifice should not be invain and need more consolidated effort from all of us esp to increase awareness of RTI in public, to seek its effective implementation, and bring positive change in society at large. Thanks.

    Re: Success at the cost of life


    I logged in today JUST to express my grief over this ruthless killing, I had no idea who this Mr.Shetty is, but when i learnt he was an RTI activist, i could understand he must have ruffled too many feathers, and used his "weapon" to kill corruption in the society.

    The fact that an RTI activist get KILLED, stands testimony to the powerful weapon that RTI is, Using just RTI he exposed many wrong doings in the Government, and unmasked a lot of officers. His RTI applications were striking deep, and striking really hard.

    Now that a handful GOONS have managed to silence his voice, lets pray his cause and his "weapon" finds more takers, and continue to strike fear in the heart of the corrupt.

    Mr.Shetty was surely not "killed", he was "Martyred" !

    May God bless his soul.

    • Three persons held in Pune RTI activist murder case

    Pune, Jan 16 (PTI) Three persons, including a lawyer, have been arrested in connection with the murder of RTI activist and graft whistle-blower Satish Shetty at Talegaon near here, police said today.

    The trio was held late last night, they said.

    The lawyer, Vijay Dabhade, allegedly had an old enmity with Shetty who had exposed many land scams in the Maval region, sources said.

    The slain activist had lodged complaints against Dabhade in the past for attacking him, they said. Two others held in the case were Pramod Waghmore and Parshuram Telgu.

    Shetty was murdered by two unidentified assailants at Talegaon, a small village about 45 km from here, on January 13 when he was taking a morning walk.

    The arrested persons would be produced in a court at Wadgaon in Maval taluka, police said.

    Police faced flak from Shetty's family members and social activists of various shades for "slow" response in the case.

    ‘I screamed for help, but no one stopped’

    Newspaper vendor Vandana Gajanand, first to witness Shetty’s plight, begged passers-by and motorists for help to take him to the hospital just 100 feet away, but failed

    <table style="border-bottom: 2px solid rgb(128, 0, 0); margin: 9px; width: 200px; height: 200px;" summary="" margin="9" width="226" align="left" border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td bgcolor="#e2e2e2"></td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#990000">
    Shop in front of which Shetty collapsed
    </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> The woman who was the first to witness Right to Information (RTI) Act activist, Satish Shetty’s plight after his gruesome murder on the morning of January 13, is yet to recover from the shock and the trauma of the incident.

    While the cold-blooded manner in which Shetty was hacked to death has rocked the city, the apathy of passers-by that fateful day is sure to haunt Vandana Gajanand for a long time to come.

    Vandana is a resident of Talegaon and owner of the newspaper stall in Talegaon Dabhade near which Shetty had stopped for his daily dose of news when he was attacked.

    ‘NO ONE STOPPED TO HELP’
    Recounting her harrowing experience, a shuddering and stammering Vandana told Pune Mirror, “Satish Shetty lay in a pool of blood in front of my shop, groaning with pain.

    I sought help from motorists and rickshawallas passing by but nobody stopped and came to help.”

    ‘I COULD HEAR HIS SCREAMS’
    Vandana said, “Every morning Shetty would take a walk from his house till the highway. On his way back, he would stop at my newspaper stall and sit for about 30 minutes reading papers. Just behind the stall is the Hari OM shop owned by my husband, where I’d go while Shetty sat reading.

    On January 13 too, Shetty was at my stall reading papers. I went inside the shop to boil milk. My husband was not around.

    Suddenly, I heard screams and instinctively hid under the counter, fearing the worst. I could hear Shetty screaming in pain, but I was too scared to come out.

    Finally, when I did, the attackers had left. I saw Shetty in a pool of blood in front of the shop. The two shops adjacent to ours had not opened yet since it was around 7 am."“

    ‘HOSPITAL WAS JUST 100 FEET AWAY’
    “I ran to the road seeking help. I tried stopping motorists and the rickshawallas. Everyone here knew Shetty and despite seeing him lying badly injured, no one bothered to stop and take him to the Bhandari hospital, which was just 100 feet away across the road,” she said.

    “For the next 15 minutes, I was running on the road, begging passers-by to stop and help me take him to the hospital, but in vain.

    Finally, I managed to stop a motorist and begged him to at least inform Shetty’s family, so that they could come and take him to the hospital. By the time, Shetty’s brothers had arrived.

    I had to be taken to the hospital as well since my blood pressure had increased. I was picked up by the police who interrogated me for hours.”

    “I am still not able to sleep at night as Shetty’s image continuously flashes before my eyes. He was a very good man who would not think twice before helping anyone.

    It’s really sad and shameful that no one stopped to help him!” rued Vandana.

    As reported at ptinews.com on 17 January, 2010

    Pune, Jan 16 (PTI) When lawyer Vijay Dabhade, main accused in the whistle-blower Satish Shetty murder case, was brought to the magistrate's court at Vadgaon-Maval, near here, there was a hush followed by whispers that grew louder in the jam-packed hall.

    The reason for the excitement was obvious as the 'lawyer-turned-accused' had donned the black gown in the same courtroom where he had been escorted by police along with two other alleged accomplices, this time, with a black shroud that covered his face.

    But there were members of his fraternity who elbowed their way to the lawyer-accused to assuage him with words "not to worry".

    Member of the Vadgaon-Maval bar, Dabhade is also a practising lawyer in the sessions court in Pune.
