In May 2007, several newspapers around India bore the photo of a man who was being called the leader of the CPI(M) political party. The Maoist party had long been banned, but it held clandestine meetings and operations which were considered damaging to the country as a whole. Arun Ferreira was being called the mastermind behind its propaganda and communications wing. He detained by the court and condemned to prison. However, the nightmare had only begun. In prison, he was tortured and abused constantly. Over the next few years, each of the ten cases slapped against him fell apart: the court couldn t find any proof of its charges. At long last, Arun Ferreira was a free man. Now he reveals the horrors he faced in prison and describes how several others are facing similar situations all around India. This book is an eye-witness account of life in an Indian prison.



Author Bio: Arun Ferreira is an Indian political activist based in Mumbai. In 2007, he was branded as the leader of the propaganda and communications wing of the banned Communist Party of India (Maoist). He was acquitted of all charges in 2014.
