The Quint’s new documentary Fighting to Save a Terror Accused is releasing soon. It profiles lawyers who defend terror-accused across courts in India. MS Khan is one such lawyer who practices in the courts of New Delhi. With an acquittal rate of almost 85 percent, he has defended some of the most high-profile terror-accused in India, like Abdul Karim Tunda – an alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist who was acquitted in 4 Delhi blast cases.
During a Facebook Live session with us, MS Khan explained why he takes up terror cases and how it is to live with the tag of a terrorist’s lawyer.
