June 2011

While travelling in Gujarat in his endeavor to write a book on connecting all the dots in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh and Tulsiram Prajapati fake encounter cases, the Writ Petitioner gained acquaintance of Smt. Narmadabai, mother of Tulsiram Prajapati in June 2011.

January 2012

As a journalist covering the BJP and other political parties, the Writ Petitioner was familiar with several BJP leaders including Prakesh Javdekar who he had been acquainted with him since 2007. Mr. Javdekar was aware that the Writ Petitioner was in the process of collecting data for writing the aforesaid book and in the process had built gained the confidence of Smt. Narmadabai, Prakash Javdekar approached the Writ Petitioner seeking his help in arranging a meeting for some lawyers with Smt. Narmadabai to facilitate her in getting some compensation from the Gujarat Government.

June 2012

Due to his father’s illness and his subsequent death in May 2012, the Writ Petitioner could not meet Prakash Javdekar immediately and finally in the month of June 2012, the Writ Petitioner was invited for lunch at Prakash Javdekar’s official residence where Bhupendra Yadav (Rajya Sabha MP and Secretary of BJP) and Manoj Dwivedi (Former Additional Advocate General of the State of Madhya Pradesh) were present.

It was then that he was informed that the Petitioner should put them in touch with smt Narbadabai and that Vakalatnamas  would have to be executed by Smt. Narmadabai for processing the compensation and he was informed that Manoj Dwivedi’s associate Govind Purohit (Advocate) would accompany him to Ujjain for this purpose.

June 2012 till date

This was a strange request as the Petitioner was aware of the controversy regarding the facts of the whole incident so being suspicious of their intentions, the Writ Petitioner decided to conduct an undercover investigation with the help of concealed cameras. The Writ Petitioner succeeded in capturing on camera criminal conspiracy hatched and executed by Members of Parliament, senior BJP Leaders and Advocates to derail judicial process set into motion by this Hon’ble Court, by manipulating the Complainant in the Tulsiram Prajapati fake encounter case into signing blank Vakalatnama so that they could plant a lawyer of their confidence and dilute the entire case.
