Allahabad HC acquits Talwars in Aarushi murder case, gives benefit of doubt

The Allahabad High Court on Thursday acquitted Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the 2008 Aarushi-Hemraj murder case. Therefore, giving the benefit of doubt to the Talwars, the trial court judgment has been overruled, says Allahabad High Court.

A bench of Justice B.K. Narayana and Justice A.K. Mishra set free the couple in the sensational murder of 14-year-old Aarushi Talwar at their Jalvayu Vihar home in Noida on May 16, 2008. The court ordered proceedings against the Talwars, rejecting the federal agency's claim.

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.

The Talwars saw the verdict from a TV placed in their barracks, sources in Dasna prison told CNN-News18.

A person familiar with the matter said that Zeitfracht's new bid was made jointly with maintenance group Nayak and its owners. While it conducted the negotiations, Air Berlin's planes were kept in the air by a government loan of 150 million euros.

Aarushi was found murdered in her bedroom, following which Hemraj was initially a suspect.

Reacting to the verdict, the CBI said it would study the high court order and decide the future course of action. However, his body too was found in a pool of blood a day later on the terrace of the house.

After talking to Aarushi's friends, the police began to suspect that her parents were involved in her murder. This decision by the Allahabad HC was a big one as it accepted the plea from Rajesh and Nupur Talwar who were convicted of the murder of their own daughter earlier.

After the state police failed to crack the case, the then UP chief minister Mayawati recommended a CBI probe to resolve the murder mystery.

On June 13, CBI arrested Krishna Thadaraj, an assistant at Rajesh's Noida clinic.

"Any person after spending this amount of jail will feel happy to get freedom". Dr Rajesh Talwar is also convicted under section 203 IPC.

The verdict ends a nine-year ordeal of the Noida-based dentist couple who were found guilty by a Ghaziabad CBI court on November 26, 2013 and were serving a life sentence in Dasna jail. When they challenged the verdict in the Allahabad High Court, they blamed the CBI for "shoddy investigation". The police was accused by many for not doing their investigation properly and they were even accused of tempering the evidences.
