Is it for me alone to bell the cat, asks Justice Katju ? Elevation of Corrupt & Criminal Contemner H.L.Dattu as CJI by PM Modi; and get whatever favours they wish from him, by giving him threats based on the dossier ?24 June 2015

Justice Katju
I had given to Mr. Ravi Shanker Prasad, the then Union Law Minister, and presently still a Minister in the Union Cabinet, a copy of the dossier containing documentary proof of serious allegations of corruption against Justice Dattu, and had requested him to get the allegations investigated. This was before Dattu became CJI.
I am sure Ravi Shankar Prasad showed the dossier to the Prime Mimister, in view of its importance.
So the Prime Minister owes it to the people of India to come clean and disclose what happened after he came to know of the dossier and its contents. Did he get the matter investigated, and if so, what was the result of the investigation ? Through whom did he get it investigated ?
Or did the Prime Minister and his close colleagues think that now they have a handle or damocles sword over Dattu, and get whatever favours they wish from him, by giving him threats based on the dossier ? Certainly, Dattu’s disgraceful statement praising Modi points in that direction.
It is time that the people of India know the truth

I had received from someone perhaps in August last year a dossier containing a lot of documentary proof ( photocopies of sale seeds showing illegal property transactions, etc ) prima facie establishing large scale corruption by the present Chief Justice of India, Justice Dattu.  I had also received an email showing photograph of the palatial house Dattu has built in Bangalore over 1200 sq.m. land.
I got several copies of the dossier made, and gave it to many persons, including mediapersons, before Dattu became CJI, and my only request was that the allegations be investigated.
I gave one copy to Mr. Shanti Bhushan, a very senior advocate of the Supreme Court, and former Union Law Minister, who sent his son Prashant to my residence to collect it. Next day Mr. Shanti Bhushan telephoned me and said that the allegations were very serious. I then said to him that in that case the Committee on Judicial Accountability ( COJA ), consisting of some very senior lawyers of the Supreme Court and retired Judges, should investigate into the allegations, but nothing was done.
The mediapersons to whom also I had given copies of the dossier, obviously being scared, did nothing. Nobody was even willing to investigate into the charges, though there was prima facie documentary proof of corruption by a person who was going to be made the Chief Justice of India.
