More than two years ago, RTI applications seeking information about complaints of threats by activists or the status of the police security cover provided to activist in Maharashtra state, had revealed that not a single activist across the state has approached the police for protection against any threat or imminent attack since 2010 till date.

 

"It is just unbelievable that in the last two years not a single RTI activist or social worker complained to the police about a threat. Violent attacks against those who exposed corruption and illegalities are common. Committed people like Satish Shetty, Arun Mane, Vithal Gite have lost their lives fighting the powerful and corrupt lobby and those like Vikrant Karnik in Thane have barely escaped death for their daring exposes. It is surprising that the police claims that everything is so hunky dory.
