In India it was the 1980’s period when investigative journalism arose, there have been a few milestone cases. First being Bofors gun scandal, which is considered one of the most influential works of the Indian investigative journalism. Then the other which shook the Indian Sensex, the Harshad Mehta scam. Since 2007 there have been a number of scams which have been investigated by the media. The UPA government has been under the scanner since then.
