This book is an exhaustive research into the published information and court orders dealing with murders of Narendra Dabholkar, Comrade Pansare, MM Kalburgi and Gauri Lankesh. It uncovers several unknown facts about the four murder investigations that reveal serious miscarriage of justice and an utter failure on part of investigating agencies.
The information provided in the book points to deliberate use of political and muscle power to influence police investigation. The author contends on a study of official documents submitted in courts that the investigating teams, probably by acting under political influence, have ended up deeply undermining all four investigations.
The book makes a compelling case for the long overdue police and judicial reforms and an urgent need to ensure a non-partisan investigation without interference from politicians and powerful organisations. Through this book, the author points out the need to free up the proverbial “caged parrot” forever so that they are free to do what they are meant for: function without fear or fervour, bring the truth before the courts, so that the guilty get punished, and protection of the innocent is ensured.
