My brother's batchmate, Manjunath Shanmugham, an IOC executive was murdered in cold blood for doing the right thing. He was only 27yrs and had everything going for him.
It was a well planned murder. Manjunath was called to the site for checking petrol samples and was even offered tea. He was later pumped with bullets and the noise from the generators ensured that no one heard anything. I think he was killed in his own car or that the intruders were caught while trying to dispose his body by driving it in his own car. The price for his death includes, a compensatory amount of 26 lakhs, a monthly pension of Rs.10,000 and the reminder of his MBA debt waived. Manju's brother will be given a job in IOC. The issue has since been forgotten. Earlier Satyendra Dubey, an civil engineer (IIT Kanpur) was murdered in Bihar for blowing the whistle on the corrupt practices in his area. He was only 31.
"...This is a clear signal to everyone that honesty in India has only one result -- failure. An honest citizen must be prepared to forfeit one's life".
But guess what qualifies for national news these days..."Amitabh Bachchan's health"..
Is anyone listening?
