The Centre for Criminal Justice Reform and Research, NALSAR is holding a talk by Abdul Wahid Shaik titled “Guilty Until Proven Innocent: A View from the Dock“.

Abdul Wahid Shaikh, a school teacher, was one of the 13 accused in the suburban train bombings of 11th July 2006 – popularly called the 7/11 bombings. He was acquitted of all charges nine years later in 2016. Wahid has authored Begunah Qaidi (‘The Innocent Prisoners’) [Amazon Link here], which provides us a worm’s eye view of the criminal justice system [see review here]. His new, yet unpublished book, A Fair Trial? takes us through the every day business of a Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) courtroom.
