Three hundred and twenty-nine innocent people were killed when a bomb exploded on Air India Flight 182 more than twenty years ago. On the same day, another bomb exploded at Tokyo’s airport, killing two baggage handlers. The victims’ families, friends, and loved ones were promised justice. After the longest and costliest criminal investigation and trial in Canadian history, they are still waiting. What went wrong? In a riveting “insider’s” account, investigative reporter Salim Jiwa—the first and only reporter on the Air India story continuously from the very beginning—explored the complex underworld of the accused terrorists from their obscure beginnings in Vancouver all the way through the criminal investigations to the trial that ended in a verdict that shocked the country: not guilty. The only reporter with “insider” access to the Sikh community, law enforcement and Indian government spies at the time, Jiwa explains in riveting eyewitness detail how the plot originated and unfolded, and who was responsible for both masterminding and carrying out the bombings. Balanced and fair-minded, Margin of Terror never fails to indict what were inexcusable missteps and mistakes on the part of law enforcement and the prosecution. It is a compulsively readable portrait of the innocent victims and of the heartbroken families and friends for whom dreams of justice and closure remain bitterly unfulfilled.
