Jayendra Saraswati Acquittal Baffling

In crime, Hinduism on November 27, 2013 at 18:21

Jayendra Saraswati,Vijayendrar of The Kanchi Mutt and 23 others were acquitted by judge in Puducherry on 27 November on the Sankararaman Murder case on the ground that the prosecution has not proved beyond reasonable doubt that the accused were in Conspiracy.

Nithyananda and Jayendra Saraswati

Ant  the other reason given is that the witnesses have not identified the accused.

Now consider the following facts.

1.Sankararaman was murdered and he was presumably blackmailing the Pontiff.

Nobody checked his motive and the possible fact for the blackmail.

If this is checked you will get the motive.

On Sankararaman:

Sankararaman had begun serving the Kanchi Mutt after the death of his father, S Anantakrishna Sharma, who was an employee of the Mutt for over 60 years. However, he did not get along well with the junior Shankarcharya, Sri Jayendra Saraswati, and he left the Mutt on his own. He later went on to become the manager of the Sri Varadaraja Perumal temple in Kancheepuram.

Although Sankararaman left the Mutt, he continued to question Jayendra Saraswati regarding his activities. In 2000, when the seer had plans to go to China, Sankararaman opposed him saying that the Hindu scriptures did not allow a Mutt’s chief to travel across oceans. He moved the Court to stop Jayendra Saraswati from his efforts following which the latter abandoned his China trip. This worsened their relationship further.

He continued to write letters to Sri Jayendra Saraswati questioning him on the mismanagement of the Mutt. In his last letter, written on August 30, 2004, Sankararaman wrote to him that the Shankarcharya was misusing his powers and that he would move the Court against him.

Soon after, he was attacked and hacked to death by a gang  in the evening of September 3, 2004.

2.There were 181 witnesses for the case for the Prosecution.

3.81 turned Approvers.

4.These 81 did a volte face and turned hostile witnesses.

This should be world record.

5.The victim Sankararaman’s family initially complained about the murder, later retracted.

Then they retracted their statements.

Again they claimed that Sankararaman was murdered at the behest of Jayendra Saraswati.

6.An auditor Radhakrishnan who was connected to the Kanchi Mutt was brutally attacked in Chennai by thugs.

7.There was an indirect admission by the Jayendrar when he was in custody where he bemoaned Vijayendra not caring about him and was trying to protect his brother.

8.One of the accused Kathiravan was murdered, he was a member of  a locla dada in Chennai .

9.There was an attempt by some one claiming to be close to Kanchi Mutt to bribe the Puducherry Judge, the audio was broadcast.

10.A Chennai Dada was seen frequenting the Kanchi Mutt sometime before Sankararaman murder.

Well, if these are not enough to convict then there is even less to convict Ramalinga Raju for Sathyam scam Harshad Mehta for Stamp paper scam and more recently Rajesh Talwar for Aarushi and Hemraj’s murders.

Law is an ass, true.

Now to the question of the Government going for appeal.

Normally one would expect Jayalalitha to go for appeal.

But one has to see whether the impending elections have a bearing on her mind.

Story:

With as many as 20 witnesses turning hostile in the Sankararaman murder case, a Puducherry court on Wednesday acquitted all 23 accused including the Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati, seer of the Kanchi Mutt. Public prosecutors admitted the witnesses including prosecution witnesses turned hostile, with the result that no motive or conspiracy could be proved, leading to all

The case till now: * On 3 September, 2004, a man named Sankararaman, a manager of the Varadarajaperumal temple in Kanchipuram, was murdered. A report in Tamil magazine Nakkeeran then linked the murder to the pontiff of the Kanchi Kamakoti mutt, Jayendra Saraswati.Nakkeeran reporter Damodaran Prakash quoted letters from Sankararaman to various publications, authorities and corporates regarding alleged malpractices in the Kanchi Mutt, the Shaivite Hindu mutt. * It began to appear that Sankararaman was a serial letter writer and whistleblower, and he had even approached the Mutt about the alleged malpractices, misuse of funds, the Shankaracharya’s travels abroad, etc. * Given that he was a much-revered religious leader whose support was wooed by political leaders and business magnates, the allegations against the Shankaracharya led to a furore among his followers. A political drama followed too, with the opposition DMK launching a massive offensive against Jayalalithaa, followed later by rumours that the case against the seers was itself caused by the Mutt’s growing friendship with the DMK. There were also rumours that the TN government was eyeing the expansive properties of the mutt.More political drama ensued with right wing parties staging protests and dharnas, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj later visiting the seer in jail and more. * In November 2004, as the Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati and his junior Vijayendra Saraswati were conducting a puja in Mahbubnagar, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu Police arrested the seer. * Barely weeks later, one of the accused, Kathiravan withdrew his statement made in front of a magistrate. Kathiravan was later murdered.

  1. Acquittal by Puduchery court cannot be a total clean chit. There seems to have been a concerted attempt to attack persons who were creating lot of noise and controvery about the Mutt affairs.

    Shankarraman was murdered in 2004
    Auditor Radhakrishnan was assaulted even in 2002
    Madhavan ( Name right?) was assaulted during the same years

    Whether Radhakrishnan or Shankararaman were correct in their allegations or whether they had evidence to prove their complaints is irrelevant and even if there was no evidence , it does not mean they can be murdered or attacked.

    If all persons complaining about Mutt are attacked, it is logical to infer that someone directly or indirectly connected to Mutt could be masterminding the attacks.

    We hear persons arguing that Some powerful persons wanted to frame the seers and they were the ones who sent the killers to Varadaraja temple to kill Shankararaman in 2004.

    Even if this were to be true, why then did Auditor Radhakrishnan get murderously assaulted even in 2002. In 2002 there was no conflict of the seers with the powerful persons and in fact the seers were riding high in power and popilarity in 2002
    It is beyond doubt that Radhakrishnan was assaulted and that he also had serious differences with the seers.
    It was also true that characters like Appu were visiting the Mutt during these years

    This requires lot of explaining certainly.
    WHether or not the seers planned the assault or the murder, it seems highly probable that someone close to the Mutt and who was upset with the “enemies” wanted to attack or murder them
    WHo in the mutt or close to the mutt planned these attacks needs to be brought to light.
    It doest look like somebody close to the mutt did have a role in these attacks
    Explaining away 2002 and 2004 attacks as outsider job just does not seem probable

  2. This post is disappointing as there are lot of issues with the way the questions are asked. A question remains only if it is addressed in the way it is.
    1. Given the fact that Shankar-raman blackmailed Jayendra saraswati, the question that needs to be asked is , when a person like shankar-raman has so many facts that can provoke HJS to commit a murder, why did he not go to the court, but instead shoot mails to a potential murderer. Since when did we start sympathizing with Blackmailers? We definitely need to ask what was the financial situation of Shankar-raman what were his source of funds, before concluding that HJS had a motive. We also need to ask what real evidences Shankar-Raman had which cannot be unearthed by anyone else, in his absence. What connections did Shankar have to be privy to information which others did not have. Let us establish all this before even assuming HJS had a motive. None of these facts are available to Ramanan. I am surprised he has concluded him guilty in the absence of such details.
    2. 81 or 181 whatever that number turn hostile. Suppose someone was having some knowledge of a crime, given the fact that the case is not going to stand in court , and given the fact that the real murderer has not been suspected, would that someone not deny it at the earliest opportunity(when no longer being pressurized to do so? ) . We must ask a question , if so many people turned hostile , then would it not be natural to assume that the evidences unearthed or presented so far have no standing. So many people would not be so prone to change their stand if there was a reasonable evidence to continue the case on the prime accused. So Ramanan instead of asking the question whether a wrong person or wrong evidences have been presented , for people to change their stand so easily, is astonished at the turnaround of the witnesses? Ramanan had already incriminated the seer and he is naturally asking such questions. This does not mean he is being closer to right.
    3. Victim’s own family keep changing their stand when they should be the last set of people to do so. The most logical question is when Shankaraman’s family does not have any credibility why is so much importance being given to their family’s reaction.
    4. An auditor connected to mutt was bruttally hit. The living person had bad relations with the mutt. It is case that needs to be scrutinized against HJS only if it is proven that Radha’s claims like the auditing of Gold etc is true. Let us first wait for this fact to come out. How do I know if Radha has another person behind him who is instigating these tales? First thing establish proven motives. Second thing let us discuss whether HJS had anything to do with it. The motives of gold/auditing- these things can certainly be established in a court of law based on the following- What was the actual gold used in vimanams, what was Radha’s real role in this auditing, what actually prompted his disagreement with the mutt etc. I can empathize with Ramanan on this question, as he being naturally suspicious of HJS .would ask such questions. They do not have much force without proven evidences of misconduct from HJS. I would personally attribute this case to HJS having many enemies in political and other religios circles. But nothing can be assumed until hard facts come out whether there was really a misuse of gold. We should then worry if HJS had something to fear about Radha, so much so that he attempted an attack on him, that too a decade after the incident.
    5. If this was such a valid evidence why did it not get presented in supreme court. Something is wrong with the way the confession had been extracted or recorded. The police has been villifying HJS during that time, including presenting falsified evidences before the court, the role of police in tampering an audio recording which is not good enought to be put before the court should be strongly suspected. The question that needs to be asked is -” Inspite of having the recorded confession of HJS, why does the police need to go for false evidences to justify their case? A person who is moving forward under the confidence that he is in the path of truth will never resort to false or fake evidences or make attempts to shut the voice of journalists and others. This is what anyone would do if they had been witness to a real confession.
    6. Kathiravan was a local goonda and he was murdered. It is surprising that a goonda can live to their natural full live inspite of the enemies they make. We do not know enough to say or assume or quote this as a reason for suspecting HJS. He may know more details of the real murderer, he may be aware of some facts that could be uncomfortable to the political parties he is connected with or some facts that could be uncomfortable to the politicians behind HJS arrest. Nothing can be said or even remotely assumed without proper details of his murder.
    7. There was an audio that HJS had blackmailed the judge. What were the steps taken to establish if it was a genuine audio. Was there forensic tests done? If it was planned , who stopped it and why. Was the reasons for stopping it was because the person who circulated it was aware it was a fake? We have a thousand mimicry aritists . Let us first find out through forensic tests. The natural question to ask, considering the eagerness of many people in establishing false records to proven HJS involvement in the murder, why should this audio recording be treated differently without it being analyzed fully?
    8. Was there some screening done by the mutt to restrict visitors? Who has seen the gangsters frequenting the mutt? Was there a CCD Camera or was it based on hearsay. If there was a video evidence to establish the frequency where is that evidence now? If it was hearsay who said it and where is that or those persons now?

  6. With due regards to the judgement, I fail to understand why the hon.judge didn’t quash the proceedings when 82 prosecution guys turned hostile & important approver too turned hostile. It appears to me as travesty of justice.

    The State wont appeal– the police officer who worked on this case has been dismissed from service.

    Worse is wife & daughter turned hostile too.

    The Mutt , as usual, would be gloating on the victory. Little do they know about the damage done to the Faith.

    BTW, who killed Sankararaman ? He didn’t commit suicide , for sure !!

  7. Ramanan,
    There is nothing baffling and everything happens in Indian judicial system. It is just usual where politicians, celebrities, pontiff’s of the mutt going Scott free after some sensational new s public uproar allegations & counter allegations by supporters and destracters. Witnesses, collaboraters.people involved being silenced or murdered by any means are the order of the day. Court cases will be dragged for years by the time public memory is also erased. Finally the verdict will be for the accused. Only in few cases the guilty is punished to some extent if they are against the party in power.
    Hence there is nothing to be baffled about.
