ZEE5, announced the launch of “Lal Bahadur Shastri’s Death – An Unfinished Story”, ZEE5’s first docudrama. It shows you what exactly took place after the Tashkent declaration was signed. The infamous truth of how our 2nd Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri died and how the last chapter to his life till remains an unsolved mystery.
The docudrama throws lights on some elements such as the possible meeting with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, involvement of an external agency or that he was poisoned by someone from his own delegation. Promising to expose some uncomfortable truths on the mysterious death of the former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri in Tashkent, the docudrama premieres on 15th August.
ZEE5’s docudrama will see Shastriji’s son Sunil Shastri and his grandson Sidharth Nath Singh take us through what happened that fateful night. Kuldeep Nayyar- a veteran Indian journalist and ex-High Commissioner of India to United Kingdom also share his view of how he suspects the involvement of TN Kaul, then foreign secretary in Shastri’s death.
Sunil Shastri, Shastriji’s son commented, “The first thing my grandmother said after looking at my father’s body was, “It’s surprising that a country’s Prime Minister is dead and nobody raised a question on it?? There is still a big question mark, on how Shastri died. When my father called from Tashkent, my family informed him that people here were very upset with his decision of signing the treaty. However, he had full faith that when he comes back and explains, everybody will be very happy; but as fate had it, they never let him reach or speak to anyone!
Is it a coincidence that, Shastriji who was a heart patient – wasn’t staying at the pre-decided place? The room he is put up in, has no buzzer- oddly his house help and his doctor’s room was very far! It’s almost like an unbelievable story, the Prime Minister of a country goes to sign a very importanttreaty and never comes back- all these things build up suspicion. The family and in fact India also wants that the last page in Shastri’s life doesn’t remain a BIG COVER UP!”
