Framed as terrorists, years destroyed - a common thread that runs through the lives of many, wrongfully convicted for acts of terror, later acquitted for lack of evidence. But these acquittals don't come easy. With a legal system like India's - fraught with corruption, weighed down by overburdened courts, police excesses - it could take decades. The Innocence Network is a global league of organisations working to provide legal services, and by extension, closure, to those who have been wrongfully convicted. Using this platform, many of India's wrongfully accused victims of high-profile terror investigations, like the Mecca Masjid blasts, Malegaon blasts and the Mumbai 7/11 serial train blasts, are now highlighting India's unjust justice system. On Agenda, many of these men - some out after decades in lock-ups, speak out and seek to get heard. \
