No reply or objections were filed by those Advocates, nor were served upon the Petitioner, nor any date was fixed to hear the aforesaid matters. But, in gross abuse of the judicial process, and against the important principle of the Jurisprudence that "Justice must be above all", but under severe bias and in highly irregular manner on 19th September 1992 both the complaints were disposed off by the Bar Council of West Bengal, in serious violations of the said core principle just by passing Resolutions, to save the skin of the brethren Advocates.

104.

One Jai Chand Lal Sethia was running a large scale gambling Club, at British India Street, Kolkata (Within the Local Area of Kolkata Police Head Quarter) and suddenly approached to the Petitioner to negotiate the matter.

That similar to Vohra Committee Report Petitioner suffered atrocities of severe magnitude, with intensity as the Respondent No. 25 to 32 have acquired considerable political clout seriously jeopardising the smooth functioning of the administration and the safety of life and property of Petitioner, and acquired substantial financial and muscle power and social respectability and have successfully corrupted the Government machinery at all levels and yield enough influence to make the task of investigating and prosecuting agencies extremely difficult; even the members of the judicial system have not escaped the embrace of the Mafiadom controlled by the Respondent No. 25 and his associates including Respondent Nos. 25 to 32. Virtually they are running a parallel Government, pushing the State apparatus into irrelevance, in respect of the matters pertained to the Petitioner. The safety and security of the lives of the family members and Petitioner himself and his property under political Nexus put under complete stake. Even Shri George Fernandes, the then M.P. (Presently Defence Minister of India) written to Shri S. B. Chavan, the then Home Minister of India by his Letter dated 6th April 1992 requested him to looked into the matter. Shri S. B.

That this is needless to refer that under the close Nexus with Shri Jyoti Basu, and other powerful politicians from West Bengal, the Respondent No. 25 established himself so powerful, that once Petitioner negotiated with one Promoter for development of his properties. Said Promoter claimed that he had very good relations with Shri Hashim Abdul Halim, the Speaker of West Bengal Legislative Assembly, and if he agreed then he will enter in agreement for development of the project. This was pre-condition of the Petitioner before the said Promoter that he never can ask the petitioner for any compromise with the said Mafiadom, which was agreed upon by the said Promoter. But, with the most surprisingly, when the Petitioner met with Shri Hashim Abdul Halim, immediately Shri Halim offered that he will mediate the matter and arranged settlement in the matter calling Mr. Fatehpuria, the relation of Respondent No. 25.

M. from the Office of Mr. Dilip Ghosal. From the language of the letter several questions cropped up, as such Petitioner by his Letter dated 1st July 1993 sent by Registered Post to Mr. Dilip Ghosal requested to clear some doubt about his conduct, which was never replied giving clear doubts that the said Letter was prepared by some senior Officer from the office of Chief Minister to cover-up the aforesaid admission made by Mr. Dilip Ghosal on 3rd June 1993.

As such, Petitioner filed Application Under Section 340 Criminal Procedure Code, before Honble Kolkata High Court interalia citing the evidences of such false statement as well as said false Affidavit of Service, as were prepared on 13th September 1991. When Honble High Court passed an order for hearing of the both the matters (Contempt Proceedings against the Petitioner and Application Under Section 340 Criminal Procedure Code filed by the Petitioner) analogously, Respondent No. 25 and his Solicitors find themselves in real trouble, as such on the one hand they managed that hearing of the said matter should not take place at any cost, and on the other hand they taken help from dreaded criminal miscreants with the help of newly uprising Mafia Respondent No. 26, being the front man of Shri Chandan Basu, son of Shri Jyoti Basu, and with Police support to create such a situation which will compel the Petitioner to flea from Kolkata, if wants to survive at all. Since, the Respondent No. 25 through his said Solicitors managed the Court staff, thus with utter surprise said Contempt proceeding was started going down in the cause list of respective Bench of Honble High Court, than started listed as Last matter of the List.

At the same time Office Building and Boundary wall at the properties of the Petitioner was broken with police protection by the men of the Respondent No. 25 to 32 and stolen goods and Books valued of Rs. few Lakhs.
