Hounding of whisleblowers

Two of the Jindal Prize winners for 'Crusade Against Corruption' Ashok Khemka and Sanjiv Chaturvedi do not seem to be having much luck with the Haryana Government:
"Chaturvedi came into limelight, when he exposed various scams in the Haryana Forest department between 2007 and 2012 following which he was transferred 12 times in five years. Later, he was suspended and chargesheeted. The Haryana Government had revoked the suspension order after the President’s intervention following his complaint.
Similarly, 47-year-old IAS officer of 1991 batch Ashok Khemka, in his 21 years of service, has been transferred 43 times. His latest transfer order, he alleges, is influenced by vested interests because he exposed scams related to land deals in Gurgaon and Faridabad as director general, consolidation of holdings and land records, in his just two-month-long tenure. "
The latest about Ashok Khemka in The Hindu Senior official probing Vadra-DLF land deal shunted out.
One awaits the fate of Vinod Rai:"He assumed office on 7 January 2008 and shall hold the office till 2014, unless his term is cut short by impeachment."
