New Delhi : ID – Investigation Discovery, India’s only Hindi investigation channel featuring true stories of investigation, suspense and crime, powered the very first Crime Writers Festival being held at the India Habitat Center, New Delhi.
ID created a unique engagement with thousands of visitors at the festival. Visitors donned their detective hats and were offered a chance to solve a case on the spot from clues available at the crime scene. The crime scene at the venue not only grabbed the interest of hundreds of people but even the crime writers could not hold themselves back.
