We’re happy to invite you for a Book Talk with Kishalay Bhattacharjee on Thursday, 18th, 7.30 pm in the FCC. Kishalay is an investigative journalist. His remarkable book “Blood on My Hands – Confessions of Staged Encounters” by an army officer splits wide open the anatomy of staged encounters in India’s northeast and explains how awards and citations are linked to a body count. Speaking to Kishalay, the confessor tells of the toll this brutality has taken on him. An essay by Bhattacharjee and a postscript that analyses the hidden policy of extra-judicial killings and how it threatens India’s democracy contextualize this searing confession. An explosive document on institutionalized human rights abuse.

The event will be hosted by Sanjay Kumar, ARD German Television
