Video: Brahmin man who spent 20 years in jail was falsely framed by Dalit officer, suffering from Brahminophobia

Lalitpur(India): The Allahabad High Court recently set aside the conviction of a man jailed for 20 years on allegations of rape, criminal intimidation and charges under the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989.

Mahadev Tiwari, Vishnu’s younger brother, spoke to us. He clarified that in these 20 years not a single time Vishnu got bail. Meanwhile, our parents along with two brothers passed away in Vishnu’s miseries.

“I am 35 years old and couldn’t get married. My younger brother and a nephew who is around 27 years old are also facing the same problem. Not only Vishnu, but we are also living in hell-like conditions” he added.

“Investigating officer was a Dalit”

The officer who filed a framed charge sheet hails from the Dalit community. Based on his investigations, the lower court convicted Vishnu Tiwari.
