Chor machaye shore!

Early Times Report

Rajouri, May 18 After taking bribe from a widow for issuing her land documents, some revenue officials here are now harassing the poor woman for speaking to the media.
In its May 18 edition, Early Times had reported that the widow, Sumita Devi, had to bribe a patwari of Veripatan area, Nayaz Ahmad to get the documents. As the news spread on Thursday morning, a government official rang up the widow and threatened her of dire consequences for having exposed the corruption.
Sumita, who is an anganwari worker, was told by the caller that she would have to lose her job. Crying bitterly, the widow said the caller (phone number 9596623649) told her that he was a "tehsildar and that she would have to lose her job for speaking to the Early Times."
"He told me that a government servant cannot accuse another government servant of corruption as it was against the service rules. He told me that I will have to pay heavily for the mistake," the widow said.
She said she had reliably learnt that the phone number from which the call was made doesn't belong to a tehsildar. "The number belongs to another patwari who is hand-in-glove with Nayaz Ahmed," she said.
The Tehsildar concerned also confirmed that the number doesn't belong to him but to a patwari from his area. "We will try to look into the matter," the Tehsildar said.
Meanwhile, as the locals took a serious note of the issue, some revenue officials contacted the widow's family and handed over Rs 1000 which the patwari had taken from her. The area residents said, "These patwaris have been taking us for a ride. They virtually fleece the people here, and now corruption has reached such a level that after taking bribe they are threatening the victims. This is intolerable. We want action against these crooks." The locals said they would take to streets should the government fail to initiate action against the patwari-duo involved in the crime. The residents also alleged that the tehsildar concerned was shielding the accused.
