" An Undercover Operation Involving Burmese Rebels And Indian Intelligence Agencies Set Amidst The Palm Trees And Beaches Of The Andaman Islands. " It All Went Horribly Wrong. Were The Burmese Betrayed By Indian Intelligence? If So, Why? " Haksar S Investigation Unfolds Like A Thriller Set Against The Background Of The Geo-Politics Of The Indian Ocean. Why Is Democratic India Silent About The Struggle For Liberty In Burma? When Nandita Haksar Took Up The Case Of Thirty-Six Burmese Prisoners In Port Blair S Jail, She Thought It Was A Simple Case Of Illegal Detention. But As She Painstakingly Pieced Her Clients Stories Together, The Case Took On A Markedly More Complex Colour. The Burmese Claimed They Had Been Double-Crossed By An Indian Military Intelligence Agent During An Undercover Operation In The Andaman Islands. The Operation Had The Support Of India S Intelligence Agencies; In Return The Burmese Were To Receive Assistance In Their Struggle Against Myanmar S Military Junta. Yet It All Went Horribly Wrong: During The Operation Some Burmese Freedom Fighters Were Shot Dead And Subsequently The Thirty Six Survivors Were Held Without Charges. The Agent Disappeared. Haksar S Investigation Unfolds Like A Thriller Set Against The Background Of The Geo-Politics Of The Indian Ocean. The Rivalries Between India And China, The Growing Importance Of Myanmar S Gas Reserves And The Insurgencies In India S North-East Are All Critical Factors In The Chain Of Events. Rogue Agent Exposes Not Only The Injustice Meted To The Thirty-Six Burmese Prisoners And The Extraordinary Silence Of The State On The Circumstances Surrounding The Agent S Disappearance But It Also Argues That By Keeping Patriots From The Burmese Resistance In Jail In Order To Placate The Myanmar Military Junta, India Has Broken Its Own Laws And Has Violated The Spirit Of Its Own Constitution.
