This report the facts of the enquiry committee severely indicting the then Maharaja of Patiala in 1935-39 for his acts of serious moral turpitude, non-judicial torture and killing of state’s leading social activists championing the cause of small peasants and other crimes. The Indictment of Patiala is a recorded testimony to the excesses committed by Maharaja of Patiala. It is an authentic, reliable chronicle of the dark period of Panjab’s History dominated by feudal chiefs.

The final indictment is based on the testimony of the victims and their perpetrators.[edit]
