From the latest Frontline

*The encounter guidelines case in the Supreme Court (PUCL v. State of Maharashtra)is taking an interesting turn with almost all the States and the UOI having responded to PUCL/Prashant Bhushan’s 20 draft guidelines, which are improved versions of those recommended by the Bombay High Court and the NHRC. Now it is PUCL’s turn to reply to those counter-affidavits filed by the UOI and the States. In this piece (Evading Guidelines), I give a detailed account of the case, followed by an interview with Prashant Bhushan.

*Rajmohan Gandhi’s ‘A Tale of Two Revolts’ is a fascinating book which I read and reread recently. I followed it up with an interview with the author, which may be of interest to our readers.
