The Case that Triggered an Emergency (Part 1)

DURATION: 21:01

ABOUT

2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the end of the Emergency in India - the darkest period in our history. The Emergency was declared because of one case. We uncover its story with the help of eminent lawyer, Prashant Bhushan (whose book, The Case That Shook India, gives a detailed account of the case) and legal legend Shanti Bhushan who represented the petitioner.
