We thank the judiciary: Talwar family members after Aarushi murder case verdict

  • 5 murder cases that shook the nation

The Allahabad High Court acquitted Nupur and Rajesh Talwar in the murder case, saying that neither the circumstances nor the evidence was enough to hold them guilty.

The jail officials said that Rajesh Talwar and his wife Nupur Talwar had not eaten anything since morning and prayed for hours.

Aarushi was found dead inside her room in the Talwars' Noida residence with her throat slit in May 2008.

Initially, the UP police had suspected Talwars' servant Hemraj, who was missing after the murder, as the murderer.

With the acquittal, the central question in the freakish mystery resurfaces -- who killed the 14-year-old girl and the 45-year-old man. Tanveer Ahmed Mir said that the two may come out of jail tomorrow afternoon.

The case has been under investigation for 9 years now.

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


"However, it still pains me when I think about the precious years lost in prison and the emotional trauma that the parents had to go through, so much so that they couldn't even mourn their own daughter's demise". "We always knew they were not guilty", Aarushi's maternal grandfather B.G. Chitnis said. He said nobody should experience what the Talwars had faced.

In his order, Additional Sessions Judge Shyam Lal had cited judgements of the Supreme Court to say that the mere fact that the prosecution had failed to "translate that mental disposition of the accused into evidence does not mean that no such mental condition existed in the mind of the assailant".

# We are waiting for the copy of the judgement.

He said, "In a case of circumstantial evidence motive does not have extreme significance". The couple were sentenced to life imprisonment in 2013 for murdering their daughter Aarushi and the domestic help Hemraj. The verdict was given under tight security at the Allahabad High Court.

The CBI team under Kumar had concluded that Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj were murdered by Krishna Thadarai - the compounder at Rajesh Talwar's clinic, his friend Rajkumar and Vijay Mandal, a driver of the Talwars' neighbour.

The Allahabad High Court is likely to pronounce the verdict at around 2 pm.
