An RTI activist who had taken up a variety of issues, from good governance, transparency and police reforms to tiger conservation, and who had been collecting evidence using the RTI Act since 2005, she had made several enemies among the powerful. She had received several threatening calls from bureaucrats, police officers and politicians. And she had faithfully kept the authorities apprised of the same, filing several petitions, including one to Union home minister P. Chidambaram, on how she feared for her life. They weren’t enough, however, to stop her enemies from getting to her.
I used to get irritated by the deluge of emails she would sent on protection of tigers in MP, another issue close to her heart. And today, all that is left of her is that facebook page with obituaries. Your killers will have to pay for what they did.
