I started this blog in Memory Of Satyendra Kumar Dubey, 1973-2003 Killed For Fighting Against Corruption In Gaya, Bihar.
Satyendra K. Dubey, the son of Bageshwari Dubey and Phulamati Devi, was born at the village of Shahpur in the Sewan district of Bihar, India.
Until the age of 15 he studied at the Gang Baksh Kannaudi High School and then he went to Allahabad for higher education. He wanted to pursuit a career in Engineering. He admitted to the Civil Engineering Department of the IIT Kanpur in 1990. He graduated with excellent marks in 1994.
After his graduation he entered the Indian Engineering Service (IES), before he was employed by the Ministry of Surface Transport in Delhi. In July 2002 he was employed by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI).
Soon after his affiliation with NHAI, Dubey became the Assistant Project Manager at Koderma, Jharkhand, responsible for managing a part of the Aurangabad-Barachatti section of National Highway 1 (The Grand Trunk Road) in the Golden Quadrilateral Corridor Project.
He worked there until August when he was transferred to Gaya, where he exposed mishandling of funds by the engineers. At this time he also became the Deputy General Manager of the National Highway Authority of India.
S. K. Dubey had written some letters to NHAI and to the Prime Minister, reporting misuse of financial resources.
As the S. K. Dubey Foundation reports, after his arrival at Gaya railway station in the early morning, he was found dead by his driver, and the police suspects somebody who didn't want Dubey to be director eliminated him. Some people, though, maintain the view Mr. Dubey's death was a case of simple robbery gone bad.
Satyendra (Dubey, an IIT Kanpur graduate) was an honest and upright engineer working on the Golden Quadrilateral Highway project. Outraged by the corruption he encountered, he took on the construction mafia pulling up contractors for shoddy work and notifying superiors. Frustrated with inaction, he finally wrote to the Prime Minister urging action. Requesting confidentiality, he detailed the "loot of public money" and "poor implementation".
Family of S. K. Dubey will need financial support (initial estimate is around Rs. 10 lakhs) as he was the sole earner of the family. This is primarily intended to:
* Help in the marriage and education of his two sisters
* Support the study of his younger brother who is pursuing his study at IT BHU and
* His parents future
