Speaking about the series, Samira Kanwar, Head of Content, VICE India said, “The area of crime as a conversation has always been VICE’s strength globally and we have been researching a lot on how to localise the topic for the country. In India, the usual format of consuming information around this topic is through sensationalizing news. Our intent is to present a more authentic and relevant picture – looking deeper into how it all began and why.”
