Justice for Murder of Manoj Kumar Gupta sign now

Jan 08, 2009

Sub: Demand for Justice through a Full, Impartial and Time-bound National Level Inquiry into the Murder of Shri Manoj Kumar Gupta, UP State PWD Executive Engineer, Killed in Auraiya on 24 Dec 2008 for resisting corrupt demands by the local MLA.

Honable Prime Minister,

We seek your kind attention to the widely reported case of the brazen and brutal murder of the above-referenced citizen of India. Mr. Guptas life was tragically cut short by the local MLA and his goons when they entered his house in the wee hours of Wednesday, December 24, 2008, and then threatened, thrashed, tortured and electrocuted him to death. The perpetrators of this crime exhibited unparalleled audacity in throwing the dying man at the doorstep of the local police station.

Mr. Gupta, an educated, law-abiding and honest citizen of this country, did not deserve to die, least of all in this ghastly manner. His refusal to toe the line of the local MLA and award PWD contracts to people who would then siphon money off the public exchequer to fatten their own pockets and those of their political mentors, became his undoing.

Mr. Gupta was a graduate of Civil Engineering from the prestigious Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, which has been approved for upgrading to IIT status by your government. As you are well aware, Banaras Hindu University was founded on the exemplary values of service, loyalty and dedication to ones profession and ones nation, by none other than Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviyaji, someone even the Father of the Nation called his mentor. It is tragic that Mr. Gupta lost his life a day before the 147th birthday of the Mahamana, for upholding his cherished values.

We, the undersigned, fear that the process of justice will be severely compromised if the local police continue to handle the investigations into this dastardly crime, for very obvious reasons. The extent of the clout of the accused local MLA can be gauged by the fact that of the 14 criminal cases lodged against him, including attempted murder, assault and rioting, 10 were dismissed with Final Reports (FR) from the police. He has yet to be convicted for any of these crimes.

We therefore beseech you to direct the attention of the Home Ministry to this case and call for an independent CBI inquiry, free from any undue political influence, to be conducted immediately.

We are the common men and women of India, who believe in the idea of India as a superpower of the future, a moral and spiritual benchmark for nations, a land where truth and justice always prevail.

We are confident you will restore our faith in the Indian polity by acting in a just manner.
