Aarushi Talwar murder took the nation by storm. “Who did it and how” were the questions popping up in every citizen’s mind.
Aarushi Talwar, daughter of Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, was found murdered in her room at her residence in 2008. Her throat was slit. She was 14 years old. We bring you the latest update on this case.
The Allahabad High Court acquitted the Talwar couple in the double murder case of their 14-year-old daughter, Aarushi Talwar and domestic help Hemraj. Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, were serving life imprisonment in Ghaziabad’s Dasna jail, a sentence awarded to the parents four years ago by a CBI court. Challenging their conviction following the CBI court order, the couple had filed an appeal in Allahabad High Court.
On May 16, 2008, Aarushi Talwar was found murdered in her bedroom at the family’s residence in Noida’s Jal Vayu Vihar. Her throat was slit and her head bludgeoned. The police initially suspected their domestic help, Hemraj, but a day later his body too was recovered from the terrace of the same flat.
Both Rajesh and Nupur Talwar have been acquitted at 2:55 p.m. today. They are expected to be out of jail tomorrow. Rajesh & Nupur Talwar are happy, and said that they have got justice, DR Maurya, Jailor, Dasna Jail was quoted as saying. The couple were serving lodged in Dasna jail after the CBI court convicted them with life imprisonment.
Allahabad High Court was of the view that as per circumstances and evidence on record they can’t be held guilty. The Talwar couple has been given benefit of doubt.
Meghna Gulzar, director of Talvar movie, welcoming the verdict said, “I feel extreme relief and gratitude. Truth has prevailed. The loss is irreparable but I am happy that truth prevailed.” The film looked at the multiple investigation theories behind Aarushi Talwar and Hemraj’s murder in Noida.
Following a movie and a book made on the investigations conducted by CBI and UP police on the Aarushi Talwar murder case, which portrays the convicted parents as innocent, the CBI in response had uploaded the entire court proceedings and orders related to the case on its website. The, then CBI spokesperson Devpreet Singh said, “The Aarushi-Hemraj murder case is being discussed in public domain. To facilitate the general public, CBI has put all important court orders on its website cbi.nic.in.”
Dr Sunil Mohre, who conducted Aarushi’s post-mortem on May 16, 2008, spoke in the court in July 2012 of a “prominent opening” of her private parts. However, this was missing in the report prepared by the doctor who wrote ““NAD (no abnormality detected)” in the section on the teenager’s private parts.
The Talwars were convicted guilty on November 25, 2013. CBI judge Shyam Lal held the parents guilty for both the murders and destruction of evidence. “The parents are the best protector of their own children and that is the order of the human nature, but they have been freaks in the history of mankind when the father and mother became the killer of their own progeny,” wrote the judge.
