Some allegations have been raised against various members of India Against Corruption (IAC) since it took up its fight against corruption. We have from time to time requested the Government to set up an independent inquiry to investigate into the matter and give us double the punishment than prescribed if found guilty. Unfortunately, the government has been more interested in mud-slinging than setting up an independent probe. Therefore, we have formed an independent ombudsmen consisting of three retired judges enjoying a reputation of high integrity and independence to inquire into any charges made against key members of IAC.

IAC's Prashant Bhushan has been accused of irregularities in a real estate deal in Himachal Pradesh.
Mayank Gandhi accused of having links with builders.
Anjali Damania questioned in her land deals in Maharashtra.

Therefore IAC is forwarding their cases to an independent ombudsmen consisting of three retired judges who have a reputation of high integrity.

The members of this independent ombudsmen are:
1. Justice AP Shah, Former Chief Justice of Delhi High Court

2. Justice BH Marlapalle, Retired Judge - Bombay High Court

3. Justice Jaspal Singh, Retired Judge - Delhi High Court

The Ombudsmen would be requested to expeditiously inquire into these charges and give their report as early as possible and within 3 months.
