Court Cases That Could Have Shaken India

This is the story that needs to be told.

Loose Pages has a phenomenal cast of characters: a chief minister found hanging from a noose inside his official residence, a former President, several serving or retired chief justices of the country’s highest court, some of the country’s best-known businesspersons, well-recognised faces from the bureaucracy, the media and the higher judiciary. It also includes some of the most important and influential persons in India, past and present: the Prime Minister, besides chief ministers, members of Parliament and political personalities of varying ideological hues.

Tying the tales together are hard disks, emails, diaries and many ‘loose’ sheets we had access to.

Many of these sheets of paper and diary entries were recovered from the offices and premises of people associated with two of India’s prominent business conglomerates—the Aditya Birla Group and the Sahara India Pariwar—after ‘search-and-seizure’ raids were conducted by officers of law enforcement agencies.

The Sahara-Birla papers could have culminated in one of the most sensational scandals of contemporary India. But it did not.
