WHISTLE BLOWERS ...
A whistle blower is a person inside the organization leaking out secrets to an outsider
This is rong, I feel
He cannot and must not leak out confidential info, which he is privy too, while continuing to receive salary from the organization.
He must quit and rite a book
SK Dubey, an IIT Kanpur graduate exposed the corruption in Golden Quadrilateral being undertaken by National Highway Authority of India, by a secret letter to PMO
the letter was leaked, and
He was killed
We plan to conduct investigations of Corruption cases of our own with your help. Our Whistle Blowers team will look at cases reported to us, that merit follow up. We will try to come up with an action plan based on our resources.
Currently, we are focussed on Mr. Dubey's killing. We are not convinced that the CBI will get Satyendra Dubey's family Justice in any reasonable amount of time.
We need help in creating the fact sheet about Mr. Dubey's Murder. We have started with a list of items that come to mind instantaneously. But there are many questions. Please help us find answers to these questions. Help us move items from Unconfirmed list to the Fact Sheet. Use internet, call people and offices in your spare time to get answers to the questions. Interview people as an SK Dubey foundation representative. Get the answers and help us expose corruption and those who support corruption.
We believe that if all of us can help answer one question, we would have more people working on this than CBI ever can. Let everyone know what's the truth. We will keep updating this site as more and more information comes in.
Whistle Blower Bill
First and foremost, we want to show our support to the Whistle Blower Act. To strengthen the basic foundation of the Indian Society, it is essential for the legislature to approve of the Whistle-Blowers Bill (Public Interest Disclosure Bill). This act gives everyone the basic safeguard to fight corruption.,
Most of the opponents of the Whistle Blower act hide behind the shield of possible misuse of this act. With corruption rampant in the Indian system, the probability of its being used for intended purpose far outweighs its misuse.

In 10 days, the PMO fowarded Dubey’s complaint to his parent Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. (MoRTH). Dubey’s request for anonymity was ignored by the PMO as his personal information was also forwarded.
On December 4, 2002, Dubey’s letter was sent to the NHAI with a copy to NHAI’s Chief Vigilance Officer.
He wrote to NHAI about his fears and was reprimanded about sending the letter to the PMO.

Response: FIR mentions that due to his honest ways of working, all the corrupt officials were unhappy with him and were loosing a lot of money due to his strict presence. These people could be anyone from officials of NHAI, the contractors or the consultants.
