As on 01-08-2008 there were 2,18,000 items on FODDER SCAM in the GOOGLE website. They are all news items gathered from various sources. But none of them gives the total picture of the scam. This website is an attempt to inform the Nation about the suppressed facts about the fodder scam, its motivated investigation by the CBI and the trial only shielding and supporting the criminal misdeeds of the CBI officers.
The CBI investigation was predetermined, blatantly partial and torturous aimed at ruining the lives of selected individuals and at the same time protecting the real culprits. The trial protected the unruly CBI officers, adding untold misery to the lives of 1000s of innocent persons, resulting in Judicial Dishonesty bordering on Judicial Arrogance, Judicial Tyranny and Judicial Terrorism.
The only exceptions were Mr. Justice B. P. Singh of Patna High Court and later Supreme Court Of India, Mr. Justice Altamas Kabir, Former Chief Justice, Jharkhand High Court, presently Supreme Court of India, Mr. Justice B. P. Sharma, Mr. Justice D. P. Sinha of Patna High Court and Mr. Justice Chandramouli Kumar Prasad of Patna High Court and later Acting Chief Justice and Mr. S. K. Pathak, learned Special Judge (CBI) Patna and Mr. H. P. Chakravarthy Special Judge, (CBI) Ranchi who ensured justice without any prejudice towards the accused in spite of pressure from CBI through various methods particularly by sensationalizing the cases through Press.

He was Mehethar (Scavenger) by caste and taking the guise of his caste profession, he used to carry bomb in the bucket of night soil during the freedom struggle. Even after becoming Minister he lived a simple life, never wore even pressed clothes, and there was not even a slight change in his life style / standard of life of his children His son who owned and managed a 'paan shop' was still managing the the same 'paan shop' even during the tenure of his father as Minister and now also owns and manages the same 'paan shop' for his living.

Though he survived the attempt to commit suicide, he never recovered from the shock and died a dejected man.
