But the institute’s RMO gave information that the canteen is run by Students Representative Committee of the hostel,” said Patel’s lawyer Paresh Mehta. The petitioner said that “Dr M M Prabhakhar has issued false certificate to Divakar, proprietor of Nilkanth Caterers, certifying that the canteen of the institute is run by him with ulterior motive of qualifying the said contractor in civil hospital tender.” - See more at: Page not found | The Indian Express

Speaking to TOI on phone, Sunil Singh, a resident of Shahjahanpur Ninaya village, said, he had filed an RTI application at the office of the district magistrate in September seeking information from authorities on various developmental work and several beneficiary schemes taken up by village pradhan Altaf Husain in the locality after it was learnt that there had been misappropriation of government funds for the area. "But we were shocked to know about a police complaint registered against us by an aide of the village pradhan at the Gajner police station," alleged Singh. He alleged further that Husain and his henchmen had been threatening them with dire consequences since the time the RTI application was submitted. Another villager Gulab Singh, whose name is also in the FIR, said, "Cops at the Gajner police station not only used foul language but also misbehaved with our kin and did not let us go through the contents of the FIR. They charged us with paralysing' governments developmental related work in the area." Despite continuous threats and cops' refusal to provide security, Ram Milan Singh, a relative of one of the RTI applicants, sought police protection and addressed a letter to the director general of police and chief minister. He has also lodged a complaint with senior police officials, who inquired about the issue with the Kanpur Dehat police officials. Repeated attempts by TOI to contact Husain failed. "The pradhan and his aides in collusion with the local police have been threatening and mounting pressure on us to withdraw the RTI application at the office of the district magistrate. Citing the fate of RTI activists murdered in various parts of the country, they threatened us with dire consequences," said Gulab Singh another RTI activist. "When we went to district collectorate to seek information regarding RTI queries, there also, his supporters followed us and threatened us to kill if not stop chasing the `wrongdoings' of village `pradhan'. After the verbal duel, they left the place and warned us to withdraw RTI application," he added. Shiv Singh, a relative of one of the RTI activist said "His cousin received stringent life threats on his mobile phone since he had sought information through RTI application from the district authorities. The unidentified persons had threatened to kill him," he said. He claimed that filing of RTI was their democratic right and that Husain was scared of the RTI queries. Sunil Singh, who has filed an RTI application, claimed the complaint to the police was meant to deter them from filing RTI applications with the district authorities. Additional superintendent of police Ram Kishan, however, said the police were conducting preliminary inquiry into the incident and admitted an FIR had been filed against the seven villagers of Shahjahanpur Ninaya village on the complaint of a villager in this regard with the Gajner police station.
