Karnataka High Court “Prohibits Lord Ganesha ; allows SEX by Sitting HC judge in Chamber!”

Justice Arali Nagaraj was found in a compromising position with a female court member six months ago; Chief Justice Khehar sought his resignation after committee of judges conducted probe

In what will go down in the history of the higher judiciary as the most brazen act of sexual misconduct by a sitting judge, a Karnataka High Court judge was forced to resign last week following a complaint after he was found in a compromising position with a female member of his staff six months ago.

Top state government sources confirmed that Justice Arali Nagaraj was asked by Chief Justice J S Khehar to put in his papers on Tuesday after a three-member committee of senior judges found the complaint to be true.

While Nagaraj resigned on the grounds of ‘moral turpitude’, the HC administration is in the process of sending a detailed report to the authority concerned.

The allegation levelled against the judge was serious, which was later enquired and proved by the panel.

Nagaraj was found in a compromising position with a woman staffer in a chamber at the Dharwad Circuit Bench court complex.

News of the judge’s romp somehow leaked and was brought to the notice of Khehar, who had the matter probed and then sought Nagaraj’s resignation.

The judge’s act inside his chamber in the HC led to a complaint of explosive nature being filed almost six months ago and sealed Nagaraj’s fate and left the state’s judicial fraternity shocked.

It is learnt that after the unsavoury incident, the lady was promptly transferred out to Gulbarga Circuit Bench.

However, the weight and nature of the evidence before the Chief Justice was overwhelming enough for him to come to the conclusion that Nagaraj had committed sexual misconduct and that he should therefore resign.

It was found prudent that instead of formally slapping charges of sexual misconduct and misdemeanour on Nagaraj, he should be asked to make a quiet exit.

Nagaraj’s resignation comes in the wake of a slew of cases involving judges of the high judiciary, who have found themselves on the wrong side of the law.

Former Karnataka High Court Chief Justice P D Dinakaran resigned as CJ of the Sikkim High Court inJuly on charges of corruption and high misdemeanour.

Making history
However, Nagaraj’s case is the first of its kind in history of the Indian judiciary, which led to a sitting judge being forced to quit on charges of sexual dalliance with a lady staff member.

When contacted, Karnataka High Court Registrar Somashekhar refused to comment. Meanwhile his personal assistant said, “We do not know anything and I will not talk to the media.”

Sources confirmed that it is because of the tawdry nature of the complaint against Nagaraj that the issue is being kept a closely guarded secret.

MiD DAY tried to contact Nagaraj at his residence and spoke to his family members, who said that he had gone out of station.

On the way up
Born in 1951, Nagaraj was appointed as additional judge in the Karnataka High Court on July 4, 2007 and became a permanent judge on July 3, 2009.

In February 1993, he was directly recruited as a district and sessions judge and served in Belgaum, Mangalore, Bijapur and Bangalore.

He has also served as member secretary to the Karnataka State Legal Services Authority and director of the Karnataka Judicial Academy

Karnataka Judge’s Wife’s SUICIDE BID & Cover-up by Police & Judiciary

Bangalore: V Cards_back - CopyA magistrate’s wife tried to end her life by hanging herself at their house in National Games Village Complex (NGV) in Koramangala late Wednesday evening. Her mother-in-law and a neighbour, who is also a judge, rushed her to Manipal Hospital where her condition is said to be critical.

However, there seems to be more to the case than meets the eye. The NGV Complex (which has quarters for judges) is abuzz with rumours that a cover-up attempt is in the works. The hospital claims that they have reported the matter to the police. However, the police say they have received no intimation yet, at the time of going to press at 9.30 pm.

Confirming the suicide attempt, an official from Adugodi police, in whose jurisdiction NGV Complex is situated, said, “Yes, it is true. We got a call around 10 pm on Wednesday from a resident of NGV Club (who is a neighbour of the magistrate) stating a woman had made a suicide bid in a neighbouring house.” The official said following urgent summons from the caller, they were at the spot within five minutes. He said they later shifted the woman, who had tried to hang herself, to Manipal Hospital. “We don’t know what happened later. It is the duty of Manipal Hospital to take up a medico-legal case and inform the police in whose jurisdiction the hospital is located. They, in turn, will inform us. After that we will begin investigation,” he said.

When contacted, Manipal Hospital authorities admitted that a middle-aged woman, identified as Asha, with bruise marks around her neck was being treated at the hospital. “It is our standard operating practice that we send a report to the police when the patient regains consciousness and can talk. Moreover, the consent of the patient is also required. Beyond this, we can not divulge any details,” an official said. The official added they get a large number of medico-legal cases and the cops are informed “in due course of time.”

An hour after making this statement, a representative from Manipal Hospital called Bangalore Mirror again and said, “We have sent an intimation to the police and we have written proof.”

However, Airport (Old) police, in whose limits the hospital is located, refuted the claim. “As per procedure, the hospital is duty-bound to begin treatment of the patient coming to them with injuries which are suspicious in nature. They then take up a medico-legal case and inform the jurisdictional police as soon as possible. They need not wait for the consent of the patient or her relatives. Once the police are intimated, they will take a call on further action,” an official said, adding, “In this case, more than 24 hours have passed, but no report has come to us from the hospital.”

The police denied receiving any report from the hospital.

An Adugodi police official said, “We will take up the case if the hospital sends us a report through the Airport police. Till then, there’s not much we can do. Officially, we have not heard anything from the victim’s family or the hospital yet.”

If any member is deceased his or her legal representatives are responsible for fruits and crimes.

01.02] Karnataka Employees HBCS has developed Two Layouts viz., JUDICIAL Layout at Yelahanka in 193 Acres and another at Talaghattapura Village on Kanakapura Road. Third one near Bidadi or Ramnagar is consideration by BMRDA, as per Society submission to Kar high court. Sufficient to say that the Karnataka Employees HBCS has committed similar, less or more crimes in other two layouts, which independent Government  Investigating agency such as C.B.I , which three SC & HC judges pray in WP.PIL 7105/2007, shall reveal. Hence JUDICIAL Layout Vs. Karnataka Employees HBCS gist given below.
01.03]  Brief of frauds committed by Karnataka Employees HBCS in JUDICIAL Layout at Yelahanka in 193 Acres:
a] Government had notified 170 Acres of “Futher Extension of Karnataka Housing Board layout, at Yelhanka by 4[1] Notification. This land got Denotified by Karnataka Employees HBCS to get it notified to form JUDICIAL Layout
b] In 1988 Karnataka Employees HBCS signed Agreement with Karnataka Government in accordance with Part-VII of Land Acquisition Act, 1894 as amended in 1984, treating the Karnataka Employees HBCS, as Private Company. This Agreement was allowed to be used by Employee-Judges ‘at times to the advantage’ and ‘at times to suppress the same; to consider acuisition is for Public Purpose under Chapter-II of L.A. Act,1894’ by collusion of  Government, High Court and Lower Courts to the detriment of Rule of Law and JUSTICE. Contrary to any respect for Rule of Law, Judgments, honesty, Morality, Integrity worth the Lordship or Judges, poor uneducated farmers’ lands were illegally got acquired.
c] Karnataka Employees HBCS failed to deposit with SLAO  Rs. Rs.2,02,55,734-50 [Ann-… ] in ninety days from the date of signing Agreement.
c] But the similar Agreements signed by Sreenivasa Housing society of Advocates and Charted Accuontants  of Andhra Pradesh was struck down & declared by N. Venkatachala through Supreme Court Order in SRINIVASA CO-OP. HOUSE BUILDING SOCIETY LTD. v. MADAM G. SASTRY, (1994) 4 Supreme Court Cases 675.
c] Karnataka Employees HBCS failed to  pay cost of News Paper publication of 4[1], 6[1] etc., did not pay any Compensation .  Society represented by its Director N. Shivanna appeared as Owners before S.L.A.O and consented to pass Awards and acknowledged for having received Compensation. Hence SLAO passed similar consent Awards for 87 Acres based on Society Directors consenting to Awards, not Land Owners. Seems SLAO paid few lakhs to five land owners after 18-05-93 per Annexure No. ….. Scanned copy pages from register of S.L.A.O is enclosed, so as to identify the persons behind various crimes committed & prosecute them  in  land aqcuistition, Stage-Managed-Land-Acquisition by Karnataka Employees HBCS with express Blessing of Court Orders. No compensation paid to land owners, no PENNY paid to Government towards land Conversion, Government’s expenditure over land aqcuisition and attending litigations.

XX] However SLAO; except High Court Order in 1994 to hand-over 17 Acres 18 Guntas;  did not handed-over the balance139 Acres of lands to  Lands to Karnataka Employees HBCS, though 156 Acres is taken posession, for Society failed to pay Rs. 2.02 Crores. Hence legally Judicial Layout is formed sites, though revenue sites, in only 17 Acres 18 guntas. But Karnataka Employees HBCS, Government have misguided and continue to High Court, its beneficiaries, Members, General Public including Lokayukta that “Society  has formed Sites in 156 Acres and in 37 Acres accrued by private Compromise with Land Lords; and having executed Sale Deeds stating layout is approved B.D.A in 1992 for 156 Acres of Land is Fraud on Constitution of India” and the “Karnataka High Court; its Member-Judges, Judicial Officers .
.XX.] Government, both Political and Executive colluded with Anti-Social activities of Karnataka Employees HBCS. They failed to take-over the lands along with buildings; as Karnataka Employees HBCS violated all terms of Agreement, with Blessings of High Court and Lower Court orders.  Possibly it is done on Quid-pro-quo basis, to have Illegal, unethical, un-holy constitutional relation with Judiciary, Judicial Bodies and Lokayukta, legal officers, Law Secretaries.
.XX] The Directors have Karnataka Employees HBCS have filed Affidavit dated 21 September 2004 in Karnataka High Court in W.P.[PIL] 40994/2002 stating that every law is violated by Grace of Lordships and Judgments. Annexure…. .
c] Karnataka Employees HBCS violated each and every Government, B.D.A, etc.,  with the help of Judgments of Karnataka High Court. Most Judges who gave Judgments are Members of Karnataka Employees HBCS. Judges Names and case numbers:
.XX] 156 Acres’ Land Conversion Fees: WP. No. 2382 of 1990.[Link in website  026.06 ] Justice S. Rajendra Babu;Interim Order [026.08 ] staying Convrsion fees.   Justice Chandrashekariah. Judgement 11th NOV 1996 [026.09]. In W. A. 138 of 1997; R. P. SETHI, CHIEF JUSTICE

b] Karnataka Cabinet Decision not to hand-over lands to Housing Society had directed on 17 January, 1990 to stay L.A. proceedings with immediate effect. Again the Cabinet on 6th August,1993 by Ho’ble Chief Minister Veerappa Moily reads thus: Subject : No. C. 18 – 1993. Role of House Building Co-operative Societies in tackling housing shortage in Bangalore City and other major cities in the State. CABINET DECISION : Cabinet considered the subject at a great length. Since many of the non-genuine housing societies had been given land, it was decided to take the following steps:- (a) Wherever lands have not yet been handed over to the Housing Societies, they should not be handed over, but should be handed over to BDA; for being given to the genuine members of the societies: (b) Wherever lands have already been handed over to the Housing Societies, they should be taken back to Government to be handed over to the Bangalore Development Authority for being given to the genuine members of the Societies: (c) An enquiry should be held as to how orders were issued and lands handed over to societies in contravention of the Cabinet decision.

Shivaprakash directed the SLAO to hand-over 17 acres 18 guntas to Karnataka Employees HBCS.
Government directed to SLAO on 28 August,1994 to handover 17 acres 18 guntas to Karnataka Employees HBCS. Hence  SLAO handed-over 17 acres 18 guntas to Karnataka Employees HBCS on 2nd September,1994.

01.04] “Karnataka Employees HBCS” Versus Judges in the Garb of Upa-Lokayukta & Lokayukta; abused their Offices with Corrupt Motives . Since Twenty years “searching Layout Plan & Lands; by My Lords”
[a]  Upa Lokayukta G.P. Shivaprakash suo moto commenced investigations vide Complaint No. Compt//UpLok/BCD/64/1999 on 4/12/1999 against “SHIVALINGAIAH, PRESIDENT, KAR.STATE JUDL. DEPT.EMP.HOUSE BLGD.CO-OP.SOCIETY, BANGALORE” under heading “IRREGULARITIES, NEPOTISM AND CORRUPT ACTIVITIES IN ALLOT- MENT OF SITES”.
[b] Up-Lokayukta wrote letter on 6th September, 1999 to B.D.A asking “whether JUDICIAL Layout is Approved by B.D.A and whether B.D.A has handed over Layout to C.M.C, Yelahanka”. As per our Investigations B.D.A replied to Up Lokayukta’s letter on 8th October, 1999 stating “ Neither B.D.A has approved JUDICIAL Layout Plan nor B.D.A has passed any Order to Hand-over JUDICIAL Layout to  C.M.C, Yelahanka”.
[c] After retirement of G.P. Shivaprakash, Justice N. Venkatachala was appointed as Karnataka Lokayukta. He instead of passing Orders as per Lokayukta Act or Handing over Investigations to C.B.I chose to close the case on 13th March, 2002 . It may kindly be noted that both G.P. Shivaprakash and Justice N. Venkatachala Karnataka Lokayukta were and are Allottees of sites in JUDICIAL Layout .
[d] Websites Investigation are trying to bring to the kind perusal the True Facts to the attention of Supreme Court of India, Union Home Ministry, Karnataka Governement, Legislature,  B.D.A, Karnataka High Court, Media, Trasparency International, C.B.I, Karnataka Police, Advocates, whole world. To see that respect of Public to the Hon’ble Judges who are not party, Members to the ‘Cess Pool of Scam’, is not Shaken.
[e] Justice N. Venkatachala who closed the case on 13th March, 2002, was allotted with three sites on his family members names. This Hush-up is haunting Karnataka High Court since 2002 till date in Writ Petitions P.I.L 40994/2002 & 7105/2007 & 13261/2006. The facts in Petitions is this that Up-Lokayukta was investigating whether Karnataka Employees HBCS which has secured more than few dozen Judgments from Karnataka High Court and Lower Courts till are bonafide or by Fraud. Few of prominent  Judgments are ILR 1994 KAR 2115, ILR 1995 KAR 3139, etc. Up-Lokayukta G.P.Shivaparakash and Lokayukta came to know through Invesigations with B.D.A and other Departments that Judgments were “Given and Taken by Fraud, Collusion, with Corrupt motives etc.” and that no any allottee has any Legal Title of Ownership to their respective sites, in the Light of B.D.A’s reply to Up-lokayukta
[f] The facts which came to be determined by Lokayukta and High Court etc., are being raised again in High Court by Justice K.Jagannath Shetty, Up-Lokayukta G.P. Shivaprakash, Justice M.P. Chinnappa, Justice A.M. Farooq and Justice T.N. Vallinayagam, the Judges of Supreme Court, Karnataka High Court. Which facts are honestly reported in our websites. In WP 7105/2007 Up-Lokayukta G.P. Shivaprakash seek C.B.I Investigations in La-de-affairs of “Karnataka Employees HBCS” stating thus at:
Paragraph 30 [A]: “ It is Disgraceful that this Judicial Layout is mired in controversy and has become cesspool of Scandals. It has become Talk of The Town. An unknown source has created website derogatory to the position of Judges. It is submitted that there are too many skeletons in the closet and the management has no Sense of Duty or Shame and requires to be replaced. A thorough time bound inquiry by an independentant investigating agency of all the misdeeds including allotment of sites, convertion of civil amenity sites and beneficiaries of the society is essential.
Paragraph 30 [B]: Petitioners being retired Judges of Karnataka High Court are confronted by public with Questions for which they have no answers. The question normally asked if JUDICIAL Layout is Above Law
[g] The several judgments secured by “Karnataka Employees HBCS” state Land is acquired legally, compensation is paid to land lords legally by S.L.A.O,  Judicial Layout is approved by Bangalore Development Authority. Civic Amenity sites of about 90 Acres is handed over to B.D.A, Sites are registered to bonafide Employees etc.,. And accordingly 2,400 plus sites are registered stating in each & every Sale Deed that Bangalore Development Authority has approved layout plan in 1992 .
[h] Up-Lokayukta came to know that Judgments were secured by Fraud and contrary to facts. Based on such Judgments 1,200 plus Judges from Superior Courts to Lower Courts, Judicial Officers were registered with sale deeds of  sites stating layout is approved by B.D.A. Similarly 1,200 sites to Court peons, clerks, etc.,It also came to know that Layout is formed in Revenue Lands in 193 Acres, Land Grabbing of 37 Acres, no compensation is paid to land lords etc.,. Lokayukta failed to punish the Karnataka Employees HBCS and passed illegal Order of closure of Investigations, whereby it encouraged Corruption and made Contempt of Court, Land Grabbing, Fraud, Forgery, Cheating etc as legitimate; whereby Legislature Committee in 2007 estimates quantified 45,000 acres of Government Lands in Bangalore Urban is Grabbed and in many cases with Fraud Judgments etc., is one of contention and purpose of websites.
[i] It however may be noted that Karnataka High Court Justice G.P. Shivaprakash gave two judgments in favour of Karnataka Employees HBCS viz., W.P. 1600/1994 directing Government to hand-over 17 acres of land in 1994.
Then in W.P. 18447/1994 in 1994; striking down Karnataka Governemt direction to Sub-registrars “not to Register the Sites of Bangalore’s 32 House Building co-operative Societies including Karnataka Employees HBCS”. Judgment is reported as ILR 1994 KAR 2115. This Judgment based on Karnataka Employees HBCS registered 2,400 plus sites stating layout is approved by B.D.A including 320 Sites formed in un-acquired 33 Acres of lands, without ownership, convertion, B.D.A approval etc.,. Based on same Judgment several H.B.C.S also registered sites similarly.

5. Few Articles appeared in Kannada weekly “AGNI” continuously of the Applicants Investigations of large Scale corruption Indian Judiciary:
[a]  in Part One April 28, 2005, Headlines read thus: “JUDICIAL Layout: JUDGES’ ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES”, “Whence Judges Themselves Kept JUSTICE on aUCTION”.
[b] Cover page of  Part Two on May 5, 2005 Mr. Lokayukta: Why there is No RAID in JUDICIAL Layout?” and
[c] . Part Three on May 19, 2005 Issue “Judicial Layout: Clever is the One who has Food in the Marriage of Mental Lady” etc.
are Annexed as Ann-  ….  This continuous News for three weeks caught Men-in-Power by Awe, arose a kind of Surprise in the Karnataka Legislators, Police, and other Officials in Secretariat and across State. Many of them contacted and got records from Applicant. Most others purchased CDs from Gangaram Book Stores, M.G. Road, Bangalore.
5.      The contents in Applicant’s websites and AGNI News, lead to “Karnataka Legislative Assembly Debates on 27th July,2005.  The Debate is Annexed as   Ann- . . . .

6.     The Karnataka Assembly which has accepted the Interim Report Part-2 of  “Karnataka Legislature Joint House Committee on ‘Encroachment of Government Lands in Bangalore City / Urban District’ Committee observed thus:
[A] at page 07 “Of the long list of erring HBCSs, the most notorious is the “Judicial Employees HBCS. Instead of being model for other HBCSs, this Society has Created an all-India record for being a Mother of Illegalities, unleashing tsunami of scandals”.
[B] At page 12 of Report under Heading “Criminal Prosecution of Land Grabbers, Government Officials and Non-Officials who actively promote, abet and assist Land Grabbing”: The Duty of the Administration is to uphold rule of law. The purpose of the Fence is to protect the Crops; to act as Guardian, Trustee and a Sentinel. But the few examples in the above paragraphs show that Fence itself is eating the Crops, the Guardian himself is molesting the ward, the Trustee is Robbing the Beneficiary and the sentinel is Looting the Citizens. If these Illegal, anti-social and unethical acts go unpunished, honest citizens will loose all faith in Government and the very Social Contract on which the State is founded will crumble as castles on foundation of sand.
[i]             It is therefore clear that the     Judicial Employees HBCS.has violated the land Reforms Act and the land so held by the HBCS shall be forfeited to the Government along with structures on it. The HBCS gave an ingenious explanation to the Committee on 30 May 2007 that the lands through private negotiations were actually not purchased through Sale Deeds but only Agreements to Sale were effected and HBCS has taken possession of the lands on that basis.  In some cases, and few land-holders have entered into a “Compromise” before the City Civil Judge. It is astounding as to how such “Compromise” in violation of the provisions of the Land Reforms Act and that too before a Court of Law can be entered.
[ii]     The HBCS submitted a layout plan to the Bangalore Development Authority 6-11-1992 for approval. The BDA vide its letter dated 28-11-1992 resolved to approve the layout subject to certain conditions. However the HBCS never again went before the BDA.
[iii]        The Judicial Employees HBCS then submitted its layout     to the City Municipal Council, Yelahanka which is not a planning Authority for the lands of the HBCS as the BDA is the concerned authority under the Town and Country Planning Act. The CMC gave approval    primarily for collection of fees at Rs. 9 per square foot. This was assumed to be “approval” of the layout for which CMC had no jurisdiction.
[iv]      The  Judicial Employees HBCS enrolled 3399 members and 1353 Associate Members and allotted 2268 sites.
