[rti_india] He was martyred


letters to the editor

He was martyred

The report 'Whistleblower & RTI activist Sathish Shetty killed' (BM, Jan 14) reveals how a man of exceptional nobility and moral strength met his end. This incident is similar to IOC employee Shanmugam Manjunath's murder. In the sole cause of protecting society from the evil, these whistleblowers work at their own peril. They deserve to be placed at high pedestal on par with the soldiers guarding our borders. It is ironical we spend huge money on useless politicians' security, but fail to protect these heroes whose services are more than essential. Let us salute these martyrs and imbibe their fighting spirit.
