Commission Report deals with the Conspiracy to Murder of Mahatma Gandhi who was
shot dead point-blank range by Nathuram Vinayak Godse in Birla House Prayer
Gardens on 30th January 1948. Three
among the eight accused i.e. Madanlal, Karkare, and Gopal Godse were released
on12th October 1964 after completion of their life-sentence and honoured on
November 12, 1964 in Pune at a private function presided by Dr. G.V.
Ketkar. In that function, Delhi and
Bombay Civil and Police administration were strongly condemned for their laxity
and dereliction of duty which ultimately resulted in the murder of Mahatma
Gandhi. The Indian Express dated November 14, 1964 commented adversely about
this function. There was a furore in Bombay Legislative Assembly and Indian
Parliament which led the instituion of Kapur Inquiry Commission. The Commission’s report was made public in
1970s. This digitised Report in two parts is an indispensable one for Judicial
Officers & Police Officials, Lawyers & Students of Legal Studies,
Historians & Human Right Activists, and above all for Indian Politicians
& Bureaucrats in discharging their official duties without any commission
or omission and comprehending the social responsibility that is to be shouldered
as and when required in times of crisis. By S. PADMAVATHI and D.G. HARIPRASATH.
