Allahabad HC Frees Man Who Spent 20 Years In Jail In False Rape Case

The Allahabad High Court on February 24 acquitted a 43-year-old man from UP's Lalitpur district, who spent 20 years in jail in a false rape case. The man, Vishnu, was serving the life imprisonment in Agra jail after a Dalit woman falsely framed him for rape in September 2000. Reportedly, Vishnu had challenged the session court's judgment in the high court in 2005 but the case remained defective till now.
