‘The Punished: Stories of Death Row Prisoners in India’ is a book written by Jahnavi Misra, and based on works of Project 39-A.
We recently interviewed the people involved in the book, to understand more about the life of death row inmates and know the story behind the book. We discuss issues such as capital punishment and also talk about what people starting a career in criminal law should be mindful of.
The interview is hosted by Umang Poddar, an Editor at Lawctopus, and the guests are Jahnavi Misra, the author of the Book, and Anup Surendranath, Research Director at Project 39-A and Assistant Professor at NLU, Delhi.
You can read an excerpt of the book here. Find out more about the book here.
