27 May 2016 Current Affairs GK: Book titled Gujarat Files : Anatomy of a Cover Up authored by Rana Ayyub was released in May 2016.
The book is an account of an eight-month long undercover investigation by journalist Rana Ayyub, who posed herself as Maithili Tyagi, a filmmaker from the American Film Institute Conservatory to investigate the Gujarat riots. She was in Gujarat in 2010, when she was working for Tehelka magazine.
The book narrates the story of fake encounters and the murder of state Home Minister Haren Pandya.
Rana in form of Maithili met bureaucrats and top cops in Gujarat who held pivotal positions in the state between 2001 and 2010.
The transcripts of the sting operation reveal the complicity of the state and its officials in crimes against humanity.
With sensational disclosures about cases that run parallel to Narendra Modi and Amit Shah’s ascent to power and their journey from Gujarat to New Delhi, the book tells the hushed truth of the state in the words of those who developed amnesia while speaking before commissions of enquiry, but held nothing back in the secretly taped videos which form the basis of this book.
