High Court Likely To Deliver Verdict Today In Aarushi Talwar Murder Case


A special CBI court had in 2013 convicted the parents of murdering her.

Filmmakers Vishal Bhardwaj and Meghna Gulzar, in their critically acclaimed movie "Talvar" on the murder case, presented alternative narratives of what could have happened on the night of May 16, 2008, when Aarushi was found dead with her throat slit in her 0home in an upper middleclass neighbourhood in the New Delhi suburb of Noida.

Since then Rajesh and Nupur Talwar are imprisoned in Ghaziabad's Dasna jail.

The family, after the acquittal of Aarushi's parents on Thursday, expressed gratitude towards the judiciary for relieving the couple from the nine-year-long journey in the murder trial of their daughter Aarushi and said they are emotional drained after hearing the decision.

The couple is expected to be set free from Dasna jail in Ghaziabad on Friday.

Both Nupur Talwar and Rajesh Talwar were found guilty of murdering Aarushi and the helper of the house Hemraj. "We have suffered a lot for nearly ten years", she said while addressing the media.

"At my age, it was very trying for me to see my daughter and son-in-law behind the bars for the crime they did not commit". The police was accused by many for not doing their investigation properly and they were even accused of tempering the evidences. The verdict was given under tight security at the Allahabad High Court.

The Talwars were convicted by a lower court in 2013 and sentenced to life in prison. The body of the family's domestic help, Hemraj, who was initially suspected of her murder, was found in a pool of blood on the terrace the following day.

Pinaki Mishra, the lawyer who appeared for the couple in the Supreme Court, said the CBI will have no case to argue in the Supreme Court.

Well that's nearly a decade and not enough time for CBI and Indian police to clear the murder case of a 14 year old, some twitteratis felt.
