Main historian VN Datta no extra


New Delhi: Leading historian of modern India Vishwa Nath Datta, most celebrated for the pioneering work “Jallianwala Bagh”, passed away at his New Delhi residence on Monday. He was 94. Born into a famous business family of Amritsar, Datta was the first to chronicle the Jallianwala massacre and bring to light the findings of the Hunter Committee Report the British had long suppressed. A Padma Shri, Datta’s long career included his time as a contributor to The Tribune in which he started writing as a student at Lahore and went on to author “Off the Shelf”, a well-regarded column for years. — TNS
