New Delhi: Indian students are defying a ban on a BBC program delving into Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s past, despite arrests and attempts by authorities to prevent them from holding screenings.

The two-part programme, “India: The Modi Question”, examines claims about Modi’s role in the 2002 riots in Gujarat, which killed over 1,000 people, most of them Muslims.

Modi was serving as the chief minister of the western state when the violence broke out.
