CORRUPTION

The ACB in Andhra Pradesh is getting information about the disproportionate assets of corrupt officials from the relatives of such officials. I gave such information to ACB regarding assets of my close relative who is a retired IAS officer as outsiders can not know the assets of corrupt officials. But the ACB did not take any action in the matter. I filed a PIL challenging the inaction.
On corruption cases supreme court of India liberalized locus standi of petitioners in PILs.
I am a social activist and public spirited citizen. I filed a PIL in AP High court in W.P.no.27227/09 cutting across relationships for an enquiry by ACB in to disproportionate assets of Mr.D.S.Murthy a retired IAS officer who illegally acquired more than Rs 100 crores of assets.D.S.Murthy being 9th respondent respondent filed counter affidavit alleging the close relationship with me. He falsely attributes malafides to me to divert the attention of the court. I have been pursuing the corrupt for the last 3 decades. And he is one of them and he happened to be my close relative. I showed the inaction of the ACB very effectively by filing my representations in material papers sent to ACB who is second respondent. But 2nd respondent badly undervalued the properties and showing marginal disproportionate assets of Mr.D.S.Murthy in their counter.D.S.Murthy retired IAS is trying to get the court prejudiced by questioning my locus standi by mentioning irrelevant matters in his counter. There are very specific details with documentary evidence in my PIL.The subject matter and contents of PIL are more important than the fact that who the petitioner is.
The matter is posted after 8 weeks from 11--08-2010. This is case of corruption. I would to see that PIL is perused completely by the AP High court before disposing the PIL. Kindly advise me in the matter
