POTA, a legislation made ostensibly to curb ‘terrorism’, has taken its toll on thousands of innocent people who have been wrongfully booked under this Act. A public tribunal was organised in Delhi in March 2004 by several groups from all across the country to highlight the gross misuse of POTA. Victims ranging from eminent political leaders, activists to innocent children from several states of India deposed at the tribunal. This film is a documentation of the public tribunal that called for an end to this draconian law.
