Day after Major gets 3 years RI, US woman says 'truth has prevailed'

"This is a victory for all women. Don't be afraid to stand up for the truth," said Chapman. "I am really grateful to the Indian Army for standing by me and the truth. This was a long fight in an alien country but truth has prevailed."

"I did not fight as a foreigner. I fought as a woman," said Chapman, who is now being invited by women's organisations to share her story.

When contacted, Saharan's father, Colonel Saharan, said: "My son is totally innocent, he has been wrongly implicated in this case."
