Who killed Gandhi? Current facts tell us that a right wing advocate of Hindu nationalism, Nathuram Godse fired three shots at point blank range and killed Gandhi in the lawn of Birla House in Delhi in the evening of January 30, 1948. Gandhi died on spot jolting the barely six months old country into complete despair. Godse confessed to his crime and was given capital punishment.
Seven decades after the probe into the murder and the subsequent execution of the accused, Petitioner Pankaj Phadnis, an independent researcher and co-founder of Abhinav Bharat, is proposing a new conspiracy theory. He is seeking reopening of the Gandhi murder investigation suggesting that there could have been a second assassin who fired a 4th bullet.
What is his conspiracy theory based on and what the current history tells us, watch to find out more.
