ರಾಜ್ಯ ಮತ್ತು ರಾಷ್ಟ್ರ ಮಟ್ಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಸುದ್ದಿ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದ “ಆದಿ ಉಡುಪಿ ಬೆತ್ತಲೆ” ಪ್ರಕರಣವೆಂದೇ ಬಣ್ಣಿಸಲ್ಪಟ್ಟಿದ್ದ ಕೇಸನ್ನು ಉಡುಪಿಯ ನ್ಯಾಯಾಧೀಶರು ವಜಾಮಾಡಿ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಶಂಕಿತ ಆರೋಪಿಗಳನ್ನು ಬಿಡುಗಡೆ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ.(ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ)

“ಕನ್ನಡಪ್ರಭ” ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯ ಮೊದಲ ಪುಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಕಟವಾದ ಈ ಸುದ್ದಿ, ೨೦೦೫ರಲ್ಲಿ ಎಲ್ಲೆಡೆ ಸುದ್ದಿಯಾಗಿ ಉಡುಪಿಯ ಹೆಸರಿಗೆ ಎಲ್ಲಿಲ್ಲದ ಕಳಂಕ ತಂದಿತ್ತಲ್ಲದೇ ಕೋಮು ಗಲಭಗೂ ಕಾರಣವಾಗಿತ್ತು. ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ವಿಧಾನ ಮಂಡಲದಲ್ಲಿ ಈ ಪತ್ರಿಕಾ ವರದಿಯನ್ನೇ ಆಧಾರವಾಗಿಸಿ ಅಂದಿನ ಸರಕಾರ ಸಿಓಡಿ ತನಿಖೆಗೂ ಆದೇಶ ಮಾಡಿತ್ತು.

ಇಶ್ಟೆಲ್ಲಾ ಆದದ್ದು ಯಕಃಶ್ಶಿತ್ ಒಂದು ಪತ್ರಿಕಾ ವರದಿ (ಕನ್ನಡಪ್ರಭ) ಮತ್ತು ಫೊಟೋದಿಂದಯೆಂಬುದನ್ನು ಗಮನಿಸಬೇಕಾಗಿದೆ.

ನ್ಯಾಯಾಧೀಶರು ತಮ್ಮ ಆದೇಶದಲ್ಲಿ ಫೊಟೋ ನಕಲಿಯೆಂಬ ಸಂಶಯ ವ್ಯಕ್ತ ಪಡಿಸಿದ್ದಾರಲ್ಲದೆ ಕಂಪ್ಯೂಟರ್ ಗ್ರಾಫಿಕ್ಸ್ ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸಿ ಚಿತ್ರವನ್ನು ಸಂಯೋಜನೆ ಮಾಡಿರುವ ಸಾಧ್ಯತೆಯಿದೆಯೆಂದೂ ಶಂಕಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ!

ಇಶ್ಟ್ಟೆಲ್ಲಾ ಅನಾಹುತಗಳಿಗೆ ಕಾರಣರನಾದ, ಫೊಟೋಕ್ಕಾಗಿ “ಕನ್ನಡಪ್ರಭ”ದಿಂದ ಎರಡು ಲಕ್ಷ ರೂಪಾಯಿ ವಸೂಲಿ ಮಾಡಿದ ಉಡುಪಿಯ ಬೆತ್ತಲೆ  ಫೊಟೋಗ್ರಾಫರ್ ಉಮೇಶ್ ಮಾರ್ಪಳ್ಲಿ ಮತ್ತು “ಕನ್ನಡಪ್ರಭ”ದ ಉಡುಪಿ ವರದಿಗಾರ, ನಕ್ಸಲ್ ಹಿತಚಿಂತಕ ಸುಭಾಸ್ ಚಂದ್ರ ವಾಗ್ಳೆ ಇದೀಗ ನ್ಯಾಯಾಯಲದಿಂದ ಉಗಿಸಿಕೊಂಡರೂ ನಾಚಿಕೆಯಿಲ್ಲದೆ ತಮಗೇನೂ ಆಗಿಲ್ಲವೆಂಬಂತೆ ಓಡಿಕೊಂಡಿರುವುದು ಸೋಜಿಗದ ಸಂಗತಿ.

೨೦೦೫ರಲ್ಲಿ ದಿನಗಟ್ಟಳೆ ಈ ಪ್ರಕರಣವನ್ನು ಮುಖಪುಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಮಸಾಲೆ ಹಾಕಿ ಹಿಂಡಿ ಹಾಕಿ ಕೋಮು ಗಲಭೆಗೆ ಕಾರಣವಾಗಿ ತನ್ನ circulation ಹೆಚ್ಹಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದ “ಕನ್ನಡಪ್ರಭ”ವಂತೂ ನ್ಯಾಯಾಧೀಶರ ಆದೇಶವನ್ನು ಯಾವುದೋ ಒಳಪುಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಸಣ್ಣದಾಗಿ ಪ್ರಕಟಿಸಿದೆ.

ಉಡುಪಿಯಂತಹ ಸುಸಂಕೃತ ಸಮುದಾಯಕ್ಕೆ ಮಸಿ ಬಳೆದ ಈ ಪ್ರಕರಣ ಮಾಧ್ಯಮಗಳ ಸ್ಪಶ್ಟಿಯೇ ಅಥವಾ “ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಪೋರಂ ಫಾರ್ ಡಿಗ್ನಿಟಿ”/”ಜನಪರ ವೇದಿಕೆ”/”ಕೋಮು ಸೌಹಾರ್ದ ವೇದಿಕೆ” ಯಂತಹ ದೇಶ ವಿರೋಧಿ ಸಂಘಟನೆಗಳ ಸಮಾಜಕ್ಕೆ ಬೆಂಕಿ ಹಚ್ಹುವ ಕೆಲಸವೇ ಎಂಬುದರ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ತನಿಖೆ ನಡೆಯಬೇಕಾಗಿದೆ.

LANCO vs CAMPCO – Ignorant “activists” take Udupi “journalists” for a ride yet again! “ಕ್ಯಾಂಪ್ಕೋ” ಮತ್ತು “ಲಾಂಕೋ” ವ್ಯತ್ಯಾಸ ಅರಿಯದ ಉಡುಪಿ ಅವಿವೇಕಿ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರು!

Idiot journalists don’t know difference between LANCO and CAMPCO 

Earlier we reported on this blog how journalists of Udupi are being misused by various foreign funded anti development activist groups.

Yet another incident has come to light – hilarious incident but shows the precarious nature of journalism in Udupi and calibre / intelligence of the journalists in this district.

In a nutshell:

As usual foreign fund rich protest group led by NRI Balakrishna Shetty from Dubai (with vested interest in various export business – hence the push for “Gas based Power plant is ok” theme of this group) called a press conference in Udupi to talk about their “protest” against Nagarjuna Thermal Plant in Nandikuru, Udupi District.

So called “scientist”Mr.Vijaya Kumar Hegdeof anti-Nagarjuna group – same Vijay Kumar Hegde who even now claims there is no power shortage in Karnataka – asked people of district to boycott famous Kadri Kambala – because LANCO President Madhusudhan Rao is attending the event (LANCO being mother-ship of Nagarjuna Power Company)  Journalists duly noted that down without any cross checks and the same was published across newspapers.

A simple Google search for LANCO would have shown the name of LANCO’s President –  Lagadapathi Madhusudhan Rao– not to mention LANCO being a publicly traded company in Stock Exchange. Or journalists could have called organisers of Kadri Kambala to find out if indeed LANCO has sponsored Kadri Kambala this year!

It turned out Mr.Madhusoodhan Rao in question is Managing Director of CAMPCOand Kadri Kambala is no way connected or sponsored by LANCO!

See below a “sorry-we-were-wrong-but-it-is-not-our-fault” report from Udayavani (screenshot from Udayavani online) on the same issue. At least Udayavani had the decency while all other newspapers remained silent.

LANCO vs CAMPCO

Predictably organisers of Kadri Kambala and public in general flooded newspaper offices about this goof up. And as usual newspapers without admitting their embarrassing gaffe washed their hands off the incident by blaming it all on Mr.Vijaya Kumar Shetty – who in turn wriggled out by issuing a lame excuse.

While some can say this is a minor goofup, bigger question is – how can we trust what is published in newspapers when these journalists can’t even get basic facts right – like name of President/CEO of well known companies?

Moreover it is a mystery why they continue to support and publish baseless statements from idiots like Vijay Kumar Hegde who claims to be a scientist but has become a laughing stock for his baseless and hilarious statements about the project?

For a change why can’t Udupi journalists investigate the background of anti-development protesters? For starters they can check who is funding these groups and why some long distance NRI patriot like Balakrishna Shetty of Dubai is so keen on opposing Thermal plant while silently pushing for Gas based power plant?

It is a pity to see journalists – supposed to be well informed and well connected – being taken for a ride by vested groups and become laughing stock!

Tired of Karavali Ale’s blackamail, people burn newspaper copies in B.C.Road 

According to reports, newspaper bundles of “Karavali Ale” – a well known rumour mongering, blackmailing eveninger in Coastal Karnataka – were burnt by people who are sick and tired of its Editor/Owner B.V.Seetharam and his gang of unethical, corrupt, blackmail journalists.

ಬಿ.ಸಿ.ರೋಡ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕರಾವಳಿ ಅಲೆಗೆ ಅದರ ಸ್ಥಾನ – ಚರಂಡಿ – ತೋರಿಸಿದ ಉದ್ರಿಕ್ತ ಜನರು!

People throw Karavali Ale into garbage

Karavali Ale which has ignited communal riots and whose Editor-in-Chief, B.V.Seetharam was arrested few months back for inciting hatred against minority community is also known for publicity stunts like damaging his own printing press to gain publicity and sympathy (and of course cheat insurance companies and banks!)

Don’t be surprised the usual shameless suspects like Press Clubs, Komu Souharda Vedike, Janapara Vedike take a protest march against this.

MANGALORE:TV9 Reporter blackmails couple for 3 lakhs;when turned down, shows them in a story on blue film!

TV9 logoSCANDAL IN MANGALORE!

ಸಭ್ಯ ದಂಪತಿಗಳಿಂದ ೩ ಲಕ್ಷ ರೂಪಾಯಿ ಕೇಳಿ ಉಗುಳಿಸಿಕೊಂಡ ಮಂಗಳೂರು ಟಿವೀ ನೈನ್ ವರದಿಗಾರ – ಹಣ ಸಿಗದಿದ್ದಾಗ ಬ್ಲೂಫಿಲ್ಮ್ ಸಂಬಂಧಿ ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮದಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಸಾರ ಮಾಡಿ ಗೂಸಾ ತಿಂದು “ಕಚೇರಿ ಮೇಲೆ ಹಲ್ಲೆ”ಯೆಂಬ ನಾಟಕ!

ಇದು ಪತ್ರಿಕಾಸ್ವಾತಂತ್ರವೇ!?

 TV9 reporter blackmails and demands 3 Lakh rupees

  • Mangalore – TV9 Reporter blackmails a couple from respected family after taking their footage in a road/building without their permission
  • Demands 3 Lakh Rupees
  • When turned down shows them in an episode on blue films!
  • When couple demand answers, claims they attacked TV9 office to coverup blackmail!
  • Usual suspects condemn “attack” – idiots in Press Club, local publicity hungry politicians raise “Freedom of Press” issue!

TV9 Crew who demanded 3 Lakh Rupees and then faked attack to coverup their blackmail tactics – Rajesh and Wilfred

TV9 Mangalore - Rajesh who demanded 3 Lakh rupees from a couple and when turned down showed them in a programme on Blue films

As this blog has exposed repeatedly, misusing Freedom of Press and resorting to blackmail / criminal activities has become a big business in Coastal Karnataka. People like B.V.Seetharam of Karavali Ale etc have virtually established a lucrative business model based on blackmail and exortion.

TV9 Reporters blackmail innocent people

It is sad that even visual media is not immune from this disturbing development. Anyone with digital camera now claims to be a journalist / TV reporter and harass people in all walks of life – students, teachers, businessmen, doctors, architects, police officials etc.

And if you question their demand, revenge is usually swift from these mercinaries in TV – imaginary stories are sewed up, your reputation is tarnished, you are shown as a goonda or worse “attacker on Press Freedom”

Idiot Press Club officials support blacmailer

Then there are of course local “Press Clubs” which wait for any incident and rush to Police officials and District Administration while turning blind eye to unethical activities of their own members. Can’t expect too much from these Press Club officebearers too – as being Press Club officebearers means lot of (blackmailing) power which leads to riches – that is why Press Club elections are hotly contested and lakhs of rupees are spent to become officebearer.

MANGALORE:Arundathi Roy shares stage with communal riot sponsor B.V.Seetharam of “Karavali Ale”

Arundathi Roy shares stage with Editor arrested for creating communal problems in Coastal Karnataka

In a recent “seminar” organised in Mangalore by a well known communal organisation “Komu Souharda Vedike”, writer Arundathi Roy shared the stage with B.V.Seetharam – who was arrested for causing communal tension in Coastal Karnataka and has a history of pouring fuel into communal riots.

Churumuri has more on her talk which touched very predictable topics like Gujarat etc. Not much surprise there.

However what is surprising is Ms.Roy shared the stage with a well known communal riot instigator like B.V.Seetharam was arrested not once but twice for causing communal tension in Mangalore.

It is really interesting to see double standards practised by someone like Arundathi Roy who has made a career out of bashing so called “communal forces” – and now sharing the stage with a communal riot instigator herself!

“THE STATESMAN” of Kolkata quotes UdupiPressVictim Blog on B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail journalism

“The Statesman” of Kolkata covers Udupi Press Victim blog on B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail journalism

Reader Prashanth Jain writes “I read about your blog in The Statesman Kolkata Edition. However their online version does not carry that article anymore, but Google’s cache contains the article”

Thanks Prashanth for forwarding the link.

Highlights from the article whose heading was “Journalist in the dock” – author unknown but is listed as “The author is The Statesman’s Bangalore-based Special Representative

While some people are supportive of the couple, others have accused them of seeking to blackmail the wealthy Jain community and other businessmen and firms for advertisements. For example, udupipressvictim.wordpress.com claimed that the eveninger, Karavali Ale, its chief editor and wife had demanded money from the wealthy Jain community in Mangalore for ensuring that he did not write against their munis.

Another blogger said: “What we have here is a simple case of sleazy blackmail journalism by Karavali Ale and BV Seetharam and the portraying of this as some kind of freedom of the Press issue is pure nonsense.

Karavali Ale and BV Seetharam have a history of writing against minority communities (remember the Kodikal church attack or attacks on Muslims during the Mangalore communal riots after Karavali Ale wrongly published the death of one teacher Bhat ~ when he was in fact alive?) And now when caught on the wrong foot (or rather, with the pen in the mouth), the whole incident is being portrayed as a freedom of Press issue.”

Kudos to the writer for giving credit to the blog (with complete address of the blog).

KARNATAKA WOMEN’S COMMISSION – BVSEE COUPLE’S NEW TARGET AFTER MALIGNING POLICE, JUDICIARY

Posted May 6, 2007 by udupipressvictim

BVSee couple blackmailers 

Coastal Karnataka’s “Blackmail couple”: Karavali Ale Editor B.V.Seetharam and “Managing Director” (aka Hafta collector) Rohini S. 

Blackmail journalist couple BVSeetharam now target Karnataka State Women’s Commission

In their latest attempt to wriggle out of legal mess they are in after being arrested for blackmailing Jain community in Coastal Karnataka, B.V.Seetharam is not leaving any stone unturned – even resorting to using his wife as a front to gain sympathy.

Seetharam’s wife Rohini (who is also accused of calling businesses and blackmailing them by demanding they place Ads in Karavali Ale Group of newspapers) is now complaining against Karnataka State Women’s Commission!

Let us see – first this blackmailing B.V.Seetharam couple complain about police (who were merely acting on a complaint filed by Jain community)

Then BVSee couple complains about judiciary and judges (supported by “rent-a-protester” like retired judge M.F.Saldanha)

And now they say State Women’s Commission is not acting on their complaint.

Does it even occur to this shameless couple that may be what they did was indeed wrong? Or has BVSee couple lost all their senses and can’t distinguish what is right from what is wrong? If it is latter, that does explain why BVSee couple shamelessly continues sleazy journalism in Karavali Ale group of newspapers.

However to Rohini’s dismay, Chairperson of Karnataka Women’s Commission has a different tale to tell which punctures the myth being spread by BVSee couple.

From “The Hindu” May 6th Bangalore Edition:

However, Ms. Nesargi had a different tale to tell. “But for my intervention, Ms. Rohini would not have been released. The moment I received the information, I contacted the police at Panambur and Sagar and asked them to release her immediately.”

After that, Ms. Nesargi said, she neither contacted me nor updated the Commission about the incident. She had not received any communication from Ms. Rohini, she said.

Thus exposing pathetic lies of B.V.Seetharam and his wife.

B.V.SEETHARAM FORCED POLICE TO ARREST ROHINI AT MIDNIGHT FOR SYMPATHY FACTOR

It is a whole different matter that it was B.V.Seetharam’s brainchild to drag his wife to jail at midnight when police came to BVSee’s home with arrest warrant. Police had no intention to arrest Rohini – but quick thinking B.V.Seetharam thought that by dragging his wife to jail he may get out jail quickly due to sympathy factor.

See below from “Hai Bengalooru” which has details what happenned that night and why Rohini was arrested.

 BVSeetharam forced police to arrest Rohini at midnight

By reading this one can realise manipulative thinking of B.V.See who did not even hesitate to drag his wife to jail so that he can get out of the mess quickly.
