RTI Activists Tussle: Aires files FIR, Shetye Unfazed!

While it is common sight to see politicians tussle over issues, the fever seems to have spread to two of Goa’s prominent RTI activists Advocate Aires Rodrigues and Kashinath Shetye (a government employee in the Electricity Department). This tussle now has led to Aires Rodrigues filing a complaint (FIR yet to be registered) at the Crime Branch stating that he was concerned about the well being and personal security of the residents of Ribandar as Kashinath Shetye was now in the illegal possession of a pistol which he could use to harm others.

He further states, Shetye managed to get the pistol registered by misrepresenting with false and forged documents submitted to the North Goa Collector that he was the owner of the pistol. He also stated, falsely stated that he had bought the Pistol from Pio Anthony Cardozo of Varca but that Cardozo had now informed the North Goa Collector that he had never sold the Pistol to Kashinath Shetye and that his signature had been forged by Shetye

When GoaChronicle.com spoke to Shetye, he remained unfazed by the allegations. He stated that everyone who has a grievance has a right to file a complaint. And if there is a complaint filed against me, then it is my right to defend myself on the allegations made which I will to the appropriate authorities, since I have all the documents to prove the allegations wrong.
