He had piteously pleaded his innocence. But the evidence arrayed by the police convinced the judge. He was found guilty of raping and killing his daughter.
He was sent to the jail for life. But it was the shame that broke his heart.
He was released from the prison when a serial killer confessed that he had raped and killed many girls since his twentieth birthday. Many unsolved cases attained finality with his confession.
The father too was found innocent after fifteen years in jail. But he did not leave the jail. He died on the day of his release.

  1. Dear Arora,

    I have a friend who spent eleven years in prison for a crime he didn't commit. DNA testing exonerated him but it's eleven years he'll never get back. Yours is a sad and believable tale. Nicely done.



    1. my story too is based on a real incident that happened here, thanks for stopping by.

  2. so many cases get sublimed although the guilty roams freely and in so many cases innocent are charged and have to pay a price...
