The fate of whistle blowers

A comment on an Indian Express site:
RTI activists are being killed all over India. All RTI activists needs to be careful as the criminals will resort to killing. Some form of anonimity needs to be adopted to protect by these RTI activists as governments are not bothered or police is of little help.This year so far some nine whistleblowers were killed . Maharashtra tops the list with four killings. Other murdered RTI activists are Amit Jethwa in Ahmedabad in July 2010. Datta Patil of Kolhapur in Maharashtra was killed on May 31, 2010, Vitthal Gite of Beed district, Maharashtra, was killed on April 21, 2010. Sola Ranga Rao of Krishna District, Andhra Pradesh, was killed on April 11,2010. Arun Sawant of Badlapur, Maharashtra, was killed on February 26, 2010. Shashidhar Mishra of Begusarai, Bihar, was killed on February 14, 2010. Vishram Laxman Dodiya of Ahmedabad, Gujarat, was killed on February 11, 2010. Satish Shetty of Pune, Maharashtra, was killed on January 13,2010.
