The accused in the Gandhi murder case during the Red Fort trial case: (from left, front row) Nathuram Godse, Narayan Dattatraya Apte, and Vishnu Ramakrishna; (seated in the second row behind Godse and Apte) Digambar Ramchandra Badge; (from right, last row) Gopal Godse and Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. Godse was deeply hurt by Savarkar's 'calculated, demonstrative non-association with him' during the trial. Photo: The Hindu Archives
