K'taka Lokayukta Chief Santosh Hegde retires today

Santosh Hegde
Bangalore, Aug 2: The "sweet and sour" experience of Karnataka Lokayukta Chief, Santosh Hegde would come to an end today, Aug 2 as he would be getting retired from his post. Now onwards, Hegde would look forward towards a relaxed and tension-free life as a retired man.

Hegde, 71-year-old who recently left no stone unturned to challenge the chair of ex Karnataka Chairman B S Yeddyurappa following his involvement in illegal mining scam had rocked the entire state when the CM ultimately had to give up his seat.

Hegde describes his experience as both "sweet and sour" and adds "I got an opportunity to help many poor people and also an opportunity to catch some corrupt officers and politicians and have been able to create awareness about the happenings in Karnataka".

"Main thing is you must have a quick disposal system in the country. In Jan Lokpal bill, we have suggested that all corruption cases should be completed from the first court within one year. And for that, as many special courts as are required should be created," said Hegde, a member of the joint drafting committee on the Lokpal bill.

He said, "No corruption case should be pending for more than one year, under any circumstances, and that will also strengthen the case of the prosecution. Now it takes ten years from the first court. There should be some radical changes in the judicial justice disposal system".
