India woke up to the tragic news of an honest public official whose hand was cut off because he refused to fudge bills submitted by some corporators.
The story is a grim reminder that corruption is corroding the nation from inside out. That is why it becomes necessary for India to root out this evil. But the endeavour may be being compromised even as we speak.
NewsX has learnt that a protective shield is likely to be given to both serving and retired public servants. A move is being contemplated to make it compulsory for probe agencies like CBI to take previous approval of the central and state governments before conducting any such enquiry against them.
