Description

What is life like inside Asia's largest prison? What happens when a man is hanged, but his pulse refuses to give up even after two hours? Did Nirbhaya's rapist, Ram Singh, commit suicide or was he murdered? For the first time we have a riveting account from an insider who has spent close to four decades as an officer at Tihar Jail during some of th...e most turbulent times in Indian political history. For the first time he breaks his silence about all he's seen from the first man he met in Tihar, Charles Sobhraj, to the controversies surrounding former CBI head, Alok Verma. Responsible for carrying out Black Warrants', Gupta witnessed 14 hangings, the most recent and his last, being that of Afzal Guru. Joining him is award-winning journalist Sunetra Choudhury whose recent book Behind Bars is a bestseller and took her deep inside the maze of prisons. Read this book for the most intimate and raw account of India's judicial and criminal justice system.
