The HC has now converted a letter that has been written by a murder convict to the court, where he states that he has been languishing in jail for 21 years as the state  has not been able to take up his matter in appropriately.

The court expressed displeasure that for the last 7 years, Abdul Mohammed Kayyum Qasim, who was arrested on February 1989, by the Kotwali Police Station, Dehradun on charges of murder and rape has been languishing in jail.

The court said that if the matter was considered well in time then after 14 years of serving of the sentence the man could have been released.

The prosecution has now been directed to file a reply and also speak to the state government of the UP and Uttranchal.
