The Inside Story

Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh

Woman gets released from prison after 27 years as son raises money for her bail

Vijai Kumari was granted bail in 1994 but couldn't leave Lucknow women's jail as she couldn't furnish two surety bonds. Kumari was convicted of murder and was serving her sentence when her son, Kanhaiya, was born. Kanhaiya grew up and raised money for a lawyer and a bond to release his mother. After 27 years, Kumari was finally released from prison on May 4, 2021.

Kumari stayed behind bars despite being granted bail in 1994. She was convicted of murder and was serving her sentence when Kanhaiya was born. He spent his first four years in Lucknow's Adarsh Nari Bandi Niketan (women's prison) with his mother, before being moved to a government children's home in Lucknow. Kumari's family abandoned her, leaving Kanhaiya as her only solace.

Kanhaiya studied till Class VIII at a government school while at the home. Around a year ago, he was sent to the Uttar Raksha Evam Punarvasan Kendra, a Kanpur-based rehabilitation centre that lodges teenagers coming from children homes after they turn 18. Kumari is now staying in a temporary accommodation at the rehabilitation centre in Kanpur, where her son lives.
