STATEMENT ON THE MURDER OF
We condemn the brutal murder of RTI activist AMIT JETHAVA who was shot dead in Ahmedabad, last night.
Our heartfelt sympathies to his widow and his two children and pray that they have the strength to bear this great loss.
Amit was well known in RTI circles and took up several environmental issues in and around the Gir Forests. His most recent PIL was on illegal mining in the Gir and in this connection he has also named powerful ruling politicians.
This murder is a clear indication that vested interests, including politicians, will stop at nothing in
