Honourable Shri Man Mohan Singh
Prime Minister of India

Respected Sir
A few days ago a newspaper published the shocking news that Rajendra Choudhary, an accused in
the Samjhauta Express bomb blast case, has revealed that in October 2006 the right-wing
extremists had planned to target Justice Rajinder Sachar.The plan could not be executed
because they were on a run after conducting Malegaon blast and lacked resources.
It is condemnable that till date Justice Sachar has not even been informed about this by the
concerned authorities. Over a telephonic conversation with him last evening Justice Sachar
wondered why neither he nor the other 6 members of the committee received any official
intimation about the threat even after 4 days the news was flashed.
Justice Sachar Committee was formed by the government in March 2005 to present report on the
socio-economic-educational conditions of the Muslim population in India. The report was
submitted to the government in November 2006 which created a sharp debate in the political and
social circles. The BJP/RSS rejected the findings and suggestions of the report outright and
is indulging in continuous propaganda against it. With such an anti-position taken on the
report, these forces can harm Justice Sachar and the members of the committee after the report
is published.
Justice Sachar is a friend, philosopher and guide to the cadres of the Socialist Party who
have utmost concern for his security. Therefore we request you to kindly direct the concerned
authorities to provide him adequate security with immediate effect.

With regards

Yours sincerely

Dr. Prem Singh
