SC grants pension to fake freedom fighters

SC grants pension to fake freedom fighters
03 November 2016 Current Affairs: The Supreme Court (SC) has granted pension to the fake freedom fighters on humanitarian grounds. However, on the other hand, the court ordered inquiry into alleged forging of freedom fighter certificates to claim pension.

In August 2005, SC appointed Justice A B Palkar Commission to examine the case of a large number of people claiming pension as freedom fighters by allegedly forging certificates in Beed district of Maharashtra. 

The court said that those falsely claiming to have participated in the freedom struggle should be dealt sternly as they were traitors. It directed the Palkar panel to complete the inquiry into claims of 354 people for freedom fighter pension and submit a report to the Maharashtra government. 

The panel had rejected the claims of 298 of 354 people and termed their documents bogus. After the cancellation, the elderly people moved the Bombay HC and pleaded that they all were senior citizens and are deprived of pensionary benefits. However, the HC refused to give relief.

The case was further escalated to the SC before a bench of Justices Kurian Joseph and RF Nariman which announced its decision in favour of the fake freedom fighters.
