The Last Killing

Rated NR 23 minutes

Satwant Singh Manak joined the Punjab Police to provide his family with a stable income. But in the late 1980s and early 1990s, in response to an insurgency, Indian security forces committed systematic and widespread torture, disappearances, and unlawful killings in Punjab. Manak silently witnessed the torture and executions of 15 unarmed individuals at the hands of his fellow police officers. The last killing of Kulwant Singh, a teenager who had passed 10th grade, deeply affected Manak. No longer able to suppress his conscience and the horror of what he witnessed, he raised his voice and was dismissed from his job.

In 1994, Manak filed a case against his fellow police officers. His courage came at a great cost. The police brutally tortured Manak, fatally tortured his father, and threatened his family. Despite such persecution, Manak has continued the fight for justice for 20 years. The Last Killing follows him as he organizes the families of the victims to attend the final hearing of the case at the Punjab and Haryana High Court in August 2013.
