Though I fought and won my case, not much has changed in the system. I remained 'dead' in government records for 18 years. There are still people who have been declared dead and their land has been usurped by relatives in connivance with government officials. I have been helping such victims in the past decades but the campaign must continue," he said.

Lal Bihari is a resident of Amilo village in Azamgarh district and was officially declared dead in 1975.

During his legal battle to regain his identity, he added 'Mritak' (deceased) in his name.
