Agra: After spending 20 years in jail following his conviction on false charges of rape, Vishnu Tiwari has now been declared innocent by Allahabad High Court.

In the 20 years he spent in jail, Tiwari lost all his family members, according to a report in Times of India.
"The man will be released soon. It is unfortunate that he spent 20 years in jail for a crime he never committed.
