A death that remained a mystery for so long will find some of its probable answers tomorrow in this docu-drama by ZEE5, slated to release on 15th August 2018 exclusively on ZEE5.
About Lal Bahadur Shastri:
Lal Bahadur Shastri, India’s 2nd Prime Minister was a strong political leader who sought out to put India on the forefront in world politics. However, his death is one of the biggest mysteries India has witnessed and remains an unfinished story. What is known to the public is that Shastri died a natural death due to a heart attack in Tashkent, Russia. However, the whole incident was shrouded in mystery.
Several questions remained unanswered. Like, why was his body blue with cuts? Was there a possible poisoning? Why was no post-mortem done? Why was no proper death certificate issued? Was it a coincidence that somehow both the main witnesses were unable to give their testimony in court, one was killed and the other met with back to back accidents just before recording his in court? Was there any truth to the rumor of Lal Bahadur Shastri meeting Subhas Chandra Bose in Tashkent? Was there the involvement of an external agency to gain political power?
