Subject: [HumJanenge] RTI Activist Beaten

Raja John Bunch an RTI Activist from VIRAR a distant western suburb of Mumbai was beaten by Builder of his coop. society building and also by society post holders on 29th August 07 at 6.00 PM. He was admitted to Sanjeevni Hospital with bleeding from the nose, there is hair fracture at nose. Reason behind being that he had used RTI for information regarding additional construction, conveyance and occupation certificate. His wife was also assaulted when she went to intervene and save Raja. Hospital just informed about the assault and didn't give details of depth of injuries to police station, so I believe the case may not be stronger if it is contested. Today myself and Mr. Nangia did go to police station to inquire about the FIR but they have registered as N.C. and have said unless we get the report from the Hospital , we cannot go for FIR. Hope they may take today details from the Hospital. After our visit police told his wife to take medical report from the govt hospital.Mr. Raja has been using RTI to unearth some of misutilisation of land in and around VIRAR by land mafia. Raja John Bunch email is bunch_raja@yahoo.
