R B. SREEKUMAR, IPS, FORMER DGP OF GUJARAT

                   R.B. Sreekumar a native of Ooruttampalam in Trivandrum District, Kerala, was born on 1947 February 12. He is holding post-graduate degree in History,Gandhian philosophy,law, litreature.He was the kerala university rank holder during his academics.BBC news once mentioned him as TIRLESS CRUSADER OF SOCIAL JUSITCE. A 1971 batch IPS officer, Sreekumar joined in Gujarat police force in 1972 and continued till his retirement in 2007 as additional director general of Police. He is the grand son of famous revolutionary freedom fighter and nationalist Balaramapuram g raman pilla who foughted against british for independence and started a news paper called navashakti and was a famous journalist and writer too. He was additional DGP of Gujarat during Godra Incident and was Intelligence DGP during Gujarat communal violence 2002.His bravery and sincirety has been accepted by the UNO.Due to his affidivites and petitions Gujrat chief minister Narendra modi was denied of visiting united states by UNO.

                   Sreekumar is former Gujarat State Director-General of Police. He came to limelight by exposing the alleged role of Gujarat government and its Chief Minister Narendra modi in Gujarat violence 2002 by preventing the police from carrying out their duties. Sreekumar was awarded the Medal for Meritorious Service in 1990 and a Medal for Distinguished Service in 1998 by the Government of India.

                   Yet there are persons whose acts and whose deeds make one think twice before arriving at such a conclusion. The Gujarat incidents of 2002 threw up many such heroes whose tales of courage, conviction and dedication towards service have made it into the folklores. One such person is Mr RB Sreekumar, the then Additional Director General of Police, heading the Intelligence Department in Gujarat during those troubled times. Sreekumar was denied promotion by Gujarat government to the rank of Director General of Police after he deposed against the government before the Nanavati-Shah Commission looking into the 2002 Godhra carnage and subsequent riots. He took his case to the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) that gave its ruling in September 2006 in his favour. The state government then appealed to the vice-chairman of CAT, and subsequently to the Gujarat High Court, but Sreekumar came out victorious both times. Sreekumar had informed the Commission in detail how the police administration was made to compromise by the government during the riots. The Indian Administative Service (IAS) and the Indian Police Service (IPS) are considered among the crème-de-la-crème of the Indian bureaucratic arrangement. Despite all kinds of socio-political changes, people belonging to these services still have public respect and public faith towards them, though for many reasons, a kind of visible erosion is being perceived and there is a perception that the so-called Steel frame is no more of the same sterling quality it used to be.

MS. KIRAN BEDI, IPS

                  Dr. Kiran Bedi born on June 9, 1949 at Amritsar in Punjab, needs no introduction, as her work speaks volume and she is not only an icon but also a role model for millions of Indians. She was the first Indian woman to join the Indian Police Services. She was one of the most renowned police officers, who have put in their whole hearted effort in serving the society. During her service as Inspector General of Prisons at Tihar Jail, – (one of world’s largest prison complexes, over 10,000 inmates). In 2007, she has taken voluntary retirement from service.

Advocate: Suhel Tirmizi,
(Gujarat High Court)

                  Advocate: Tirmizi Mohammed Suhel Mohiyuddin hails from Ahmedabad (Gujarat) was born on 8th June, 1964. His education started from SSC from St. Xavier’s High School, Ahmedabad. and B. Com from H. L. College Of Commerce, and the professional Lawyer course (LL.B.) from M. N. Nanavati Law College, Ahmedabad.

Advocate: Tirmizi enrolled as an advocate in the Bar Council of Gujarat in July, 1990.

Tirmizi worked Paneled Advocate: at Ahmedabad District Panchayat, Gujarat between 2000 -2002, Junagadh District Panchayat, Gujarat between 2002 -2003, and Additional Central Government Standing Counsel of India from 17th August, 2004 to 28th December 2005. Other Aspects related to Tirmzi is that he has more than 85 reported judgments in various journals. Tirmizi appeared in number of Land Acquisition matters, Municipality and Panchayat Matters, Criminal matters and Civil cases at High Court of Guajrat.

Tirmizi is known for his dedicated Humanitarian Approach: He has appeared in cases of poor hutments between 1999 and 2001. Also worked with Non-Governmental Organizations and appearance in the Gujarat’s 2002 cases exceeds 140 matters for victims. Tirmizi resigned as Addl. Central Government Standing Counsel on 28.12.2005 as he was required to file a writ petition seeking C.B.I inquiry in a riot related case where more than 21 dead bodies of victims of 2002 carnage were unearthed. The writ petition was filed on 28.12.2005 (after his resignation from Central Govt. panel) being Special Criminal Application No. 1875 of 2005, the High Court directed C.B.I to send the skeletons to Red Hill Laboratory, Hyderabad at the initial stage. Legal assistance to poor has been given top most priority and though permissible, He felt it improper to join C.B.I as respondent and also continue as counsel of central government.

Strong supporter of Justice: Tirmizi’s steadfastness to fight for victims of Gujarat Riots that witnessed mass massacre. All cases have been fought pro-bono. Still the cases against mighty communal forces are being fought along with the NGO Ms. Teesta Setalvad. The only reason for such a fight is to instill confidence in the people, especially minorities in the constitution of India and also give a strong message to the communal forces that it would not be a cake walk for them to commit such offences and get away Honorably. Various courts have convicted the accused in the riot related cases of Gujarat and this is a trend setter as till today not a single accused of Sikh riots of 1984 is convicted so far. Proper assistance to the court and the victims would give a strong message to the communal forces.
