Watch: Harsh Mander and Siddharth Varadarajan Sift Fact From Fiction in the Ishrat Jahan Case

Last week, an Indian Express report revealed that a home ministry official heading the probe into the Ishrat Jahan “missing papers” case, B.K. Prasad, was caught on tape coaching a witness, another government official.

Activist and writer Harsh Mander and The Wire’s founding editor Siddharth Varadarjan discuss this worrying revelation, the continued diversionary tactics used (such as insisting that Ishrat Jahan was a Lashkar-e-Tayyaba militant), the history of the case and more, and answer questions from readers.
