''There is a nexus between the factory owner, police and administration, therefore no action is being taken against the culprits.'' In a a letter to Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, he asserted it was the government's duty to unmask ''the real face of the conspirators.'' Mr Mukherjee further alleged the mill owner had been threatening Pandey for the last seveal yrs with dire consequences.
