Prayagraj: Punishment for being innocent is an inconsistent matter. In such a situation, it is sad for an innocent to be jailed on charges of rape for 20 years. The Allahabad High Court has made a scathing comment on the state government for not exercising powers to release the prisoners who are serving life imprisonment after 14 years, saying that it is very sad and unfortunate that the accused, despite not committing a serious crime, has 20 years He is in jail and the state government did not consider the law of release even after 14 years of his sentence.
Let me tell you that when the legal services committee's lawyer applied for a hearing on the basis of imprisonment for 20 years. Then he could be heard. It is sad that the appeal filed by the accused from jail was also deficient for 16 years. However, the court ordered the immediate release of the accused if he did not prove the charge of misconduct and regretted the government's attitude. This order has been given by a division bench of Justice Dr. KJ Thakar and Justice Gautam Chaudhary while accepting the jail appeal of Vishnu of Lalitpur.
