This in-depth 150-page report analyzes thousands of pages of previously unavailable and secret affidavits, government records and arguments submitted to the 1985 Misra Commission, established to examine the Sikh Massacres in Delhi, Kanpur, and Bokaro. After a thorough discussion of administrative and judicial impunity, the report applies the international law of genocide and crimes against humanity to the pogroms, relating the massacres with international understandings of gross violations of human rights. The report proposes steps to redress the survivors’ rights to knowledge, justice and reparation.
