COMPLAINT BY: Rakesh Raman

OPENING STATEMENT: Mr. Manish Kumar Gupta has joined a growing network of delinquent government officials who are part of a citywide construction-cum-corruption racket of hundreds of crores of rupees being run by local criminals with support from corrupt bureaucrats, police, members of judiciary, and builders’ mafia. 

In response to the complaints filed by me, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) initiated corruption investigation against Mr. Anurag Jain (IAS), former DDA Vice Chairman; Mr. Devinder Singh (IAS), former Registrar Cooperative Societies (RCS) of Delhi Government; and Mr. Pankaj Kumar (IAS), District Magistrate (North-East) who are the prime / latest accused in this case.

Note: As a journalist and social activist, I have been reporting about this citywide criminal case in Delhi for the past couple of years. I am also receiving threats including death threats for my editorial and anti-corruption work. Despite assurances to me by the law-enforcement agencies, there are attempts by the top bureaucrats, police, and politicians to protect the accused. If this case is prosecuted in a fair and transparent manner, at least 20 top government officials besides others who are named in my complaints should be jailed.
