Aarushi-Hemraj murder case: Allahabad HC acquits Rajesh, Nupur Talwar

Aarushi-Hemraj murder case: Allahabad HC acquits Rajesh, Nupur Talwar

The high court of Allahabad will most probably pronounce its verdict on the murder case of the 14-year-old Aarushi Talwar of Noida.

Rajesh and Nupur were convicted in 2013 over the charges of murdering their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj at their residence.

Sentenced to life imprisonment by the Ghaziabad CBI Court on November 26 2013, the appeal against this sentence was upheld by a division of the court comprising Justices BK Narayana and AK Mishra. In a rare interview that Nupur Talwar had given from the jail almost two years back, Ms Talwar had spoken about her plans to work in the non-profit sector once she was released, whenever she was released.

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 order, however, failed to bring a closure to the case and the public opinion remained divided, even after years of the conviction.

Couple accused of killing daughter Aarushi Talwar acquitted

The court while acquitting Talwars said that there was no chain of evidence and it can't convict on the basis of mere suspicion. I think this is what has happened in this appeal. In an immediate reaction, Aarushi's grandfather BG Chitnis told Times Now that he always believed that Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar were innocent.

"The High Court observed that they have been punished wrongly".

Jailor of the Ghaziabad's Dasna prison Dadhiram Maurya said the Talwars felt they have got justice and were praying.

# Will approach the Supreme Court if HC rules against us, says Talwars' lawyer. 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.

In 2009, the CBI handed over the investigation to a new team, which recommended closing the case due to critical gaps in investigation.
