This is an account of eleven cases in independent India, where the accused were sentenced to death by hanging. Each of these cases rocked the nation, divided the people and tore families asunder. The cases are discussed in the light on the various kinds of criminal law and the history of capital punishment in India. It delves deep and traces the social, religious, political and economic background of each convict.
The first case is that of Nathuram Vinayak Godse, the man who assassinated Mahatma Gandhi, along with co-conspirator Narayan Apte, in 1948. The book captures ten other sensational cases-including Ajmal Kasab and Yakub Memon. Each story is meticulously researched and traced from the beginning, including facts which have never been revealed, and with the perpetrator's circumstances and motivations anaylsed. After all, how much do we know these people whose acts we have condemned? What led them to the heinous crimes they were convicted for? And was justice truly delivered?
