    103. The Gavit Sisters: India's Most Evil Duo

    Take a second and think about your mom. You probably smiled a little just now. Everyone’s mom is their life’s singlehanded superhero. Countless pieces of song, film and poetry have been dedicated to moms; it’s a relationship like no other and all dads seem to know they come a close second. So what happens when that very same mom, the one you’d take or fire a bullet for, spirals down into a path of sinister crime, and decides to take you along with her? This is the story of one such mother whose life of crime and lack of remorse turned her 2 daughters into the most infamous criminals the country had ever seen. This is the story of the Gavit Sisters.

    102. The Aarushi Talwar Case: Noida’s Infamous Double Murder

    Home is supposed to be your safe haven; your bed, the thing you crave coming back to at the end of a long day. Your parents, the people you’d take or fire a bullet for. Between the four walls of a home and around the people you love, exists most of your life. That was all true for 13 year old Aarushi. Little did she know, though, on the night of 15th May, in that very home, those very people were about to conspire to commit murder…her murder. And they were going to succeed, making sure she never saw the light of another day. This is the story of what really went down inside house L-32 in Sector 25, Noida on the night of 15th May 2008. This is the story of Aarushi Talwar.

    101. Did India’s First Crime Show Host Kill his Wife? • Suhaib Ilyasi Murder Saga

    This is the story of the man who created India’s first crime show: every week he was on television screens around the nation narrating the exploits of the most devious criminals of the time, until January 10, 2000, when he found himself at the center of a criminal investigation. The difference was, he was no longer researching or hosting this case, but instead living it – in the eyes of the police, the man that covers murder for a living, had just covered up the murder of his own wife. This is the story of how the host of India’s Most Wanted, became one of the most Wanted Men in india. This is the story of Suhaib Ilyasi.

    100. Did India Hang an Innocent Man? Dhananjoy Chatterjee - India

    100. Did India Hang an Innocent Man? Dhananjoy Chatterjee - India

    Where do you feel the safest in the world? For most of us, the safest place on Earth will be within the four corners of our home. It is the certainty of intimately knowing your surroundings, with its many variables, that makes us feel safe at home. I know that the ringing of the doorbell at 10 PM is the guard asking me to move my car, or tapping sounds are from a pipe I have procrastinated to get fixed. The chances of something going wrong in my own home is minimal, almost impossible. That’s why when Yashomati Parekh left her daughter home alone in Kolkata, she wasn’t expecting to return to a scene that changed the city forever. This is the story behind India’s first execution post Independence. This is the story of Hetal Parekh.
