Talwars Acquitted In Daughter Aarushi's Murder By Allahabad High Court

LIVE updates – Aarushi murder case: Allahabad High Court to deliver verdict today

Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, a doctor-couple from Noida, were sentenced with life term after the special CBI court found them guilty of murdering their only daughter Aarushi and their domestic help Hemraj. The benefit of doubt in this case seems to go in favour of Talwars, the High Court observed.

On May 16, 2008, Aarushi Talwar, the only daughter of the dentist couple was found murdered in her bedroom in their Noida residence.

The court while acquitting Talwars said that there was no chain of evidence and it can't convict on the basis of mere suspicion.

The argument in the court pointed out on few evidences which could have led to the murder of the two, such as the activities that happened on the Internet, the very night of the murder, were quite suspicious, the missing key of Aarushi's room, Hemraj's pillowcase colour and the forensic test reports.

After the verdict, Aarushi's grandfather talked to CNN-News18 and said that he is grateful for the "positive" judgment and he always knew that Nupur and Rajesh were innocent. According to the Prison Superintendent of Dasna jail in Ghaziabad where the couple is now lodged, the release formalities will be carried out one the HC's order is received.

Since then Rajesh and Nupur Talwar are imprisoned in Ghaziabad's Dasna jail. On May 17, the body of Hemraj was found on the terrace.

The CBI had suspected Aarushi's father Rajesh Talwar to commit the double murders based on circumstantial evidence, though the CBI did not convict him due to lack of proper evidence. Onus on Talwars to prove that who else could have killed Aarushi and Hemraj. The High Court had also chose to hear the appeals afresh due to contradictions in some submissions made by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and had resumed the hearing in August.

As the Uttar Pradesh Police drew flak over shoddy investigation into the case which was making national headlines, the then chief minister Mayawati recommended a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

On June 13, Rajesh Talwar's compounder Krishna was arrested by the CBI.

"Any person after spending this amount of jail will feel happy to get freedom".

The three were later freed after no evidence was found against them.

The CBI court, presided by Additional Sessions Judge Shyam Lal, had, however, rejected the CBI's plea for death penalty in 2014.
