About the Book
It was one of the most sensational trials in the history of the Indian independence: movement. In court appeared 49 accused and 206 witnesses. 400 documents were filed and 5000 exhibits were produced including bombs, revolvers and acid. The English judge, CB. Beech croft had studied. with one of the accused at Cambridge. The Chief Prosecutor, Eardley Norton. displayed a loaded revolver on his briefcase during the trial. Young lawyer Chittaranjan Das who would later become a major figure in the independence movement, appeared for the defence.

It all began with a bomb hurled at a carriage in Muzaffarpur, Bihar, on 30 April 1908, by Khudiram Bose and Prafulla Chaki, two teenaged revolutionaries who would shake the British Empire to its core and set in motion a chain of events that would eventually gain India its freedom.

The Alipore Bomb Case: A Historic Pre Independence Trial is an inspiring account of the revolutionary secret societies that formed the vanguard of India's independence movement. Guided and aided by intellectuals and spiritual stalwarts like Aurobindo Ghose and Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak, the nationalist movement sounded the bugle for a colonised India's determination to gain complete independence from the oppressive British rule.
