A 27-year-old man held for an alleged rape case by the Himachal Pradesh High Court published and released a monthly magazine for preparation of competitive exams named ‘Competition Companion’.
The convict named Vikram Singh Khimta is a resident of Mandhol village in Shimla and served two years in the jail for the alleged case. According to him, the case had been fabricated and presented in the court.
He told in an interview, “I was hopeful for justice from the Indian judicial system. On November 3, I was acquitted by the High Court of Himachal Pradesh. I was punished by session court under certain circumstances on September 30, 2016, for a crime which I never did. We appealed in the High Court and on November 3, 2018. I was acquitted as I was never involved in the crime for which I was jailed for two years.”
While working on the magazine, Khimta was also preparing for civil services exam while being in the jail where the prison authorities helped him to write the magazine.
