RTI Activist Fighting Shivalik Builder Fraud Arrested By Vasai Road Police

16 July 2011 No Comment

16th July, 2011: RTI Activist Kamlakar Shenoy, who blew the whistle on Shivalik Ventures land fraud at Golibar and Wadala, was arrested late this evening by Vasai Police. He is being taken to Manikpur Police Station near Vasai Road.

A member of RTI Activists Union against Land Mafia, Shenoy has been blowing the whistle for long on Shivalik Ventures. In response to his complaints, Magistrate Court at Ballard Pier Court had ordered that Ramakant Jadhav, the proprietor of Shivalik Ventures, along with 12 officers — three IAS officer and 9 CIDCO officers — be prosecuted for land grabbing and various illegalities in the Slum Rehabilitation Scheme being carried out by MHADA and other authorities. (However, under pressure of Home Minister R R Patil, the police have refrained from taking action.)

In retaliation, the proprietor of Shivalik Ventures maliciously filed a bogus complaint of “Atrocity” (i.e. insulting a member of Scheduled Caste) against Shenoy in 2008 in five police stations back in 2008.

Under pressure of the builder and his henchmen, the police arrested Shenoy at long last. They deliberately had him arrested on Saturday to minimize his chances of getting bail promptly, so that he spends at least two days in police and judicial custody.

At the time of going to press, it is learned Shenoy is being charged with IPC Section 156(3) IPC — Attempt to Disturb the Peace. He has still not been charged.
