HC Deb 28 February 1911 vol 22 cc185-6

asked whether his attention has been called to a statement made in the Bombay High Court, during the trial of Vinayak Savarkar, that Lala Lajpat Rai attended meetings at India House with Savarkar to preach independence by revolutionary methods; whether he is aware of the fact that Lala Lajpat Rai has publicly repudiated and denied this allegation; whether the evidence complained of was given by a police witness; and whether instructions will be given to the authorities to ascertain why this witness made his statement and to punish him if he is found to have committed perjury?


I am unable to find in the reports of the trial that any such statement was made.
