Allahabad, Oct 12 (IBNS): One of the family members of Talwar said they are relieved and grateful to god for the verdict announced by Allahabad High Court, that has acquitted Rajesh and Nupur Talwar of double murder charges in the Aarushi murder case on Thursday.

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

Thanking the court for the verdict, Talwar's kin said: "I am grateful to the High Court for ending an injustice."

Aarushi's grandfather said two innocent people, Rajesh and Nupur, were held for so long for the crime they have not committed.

Aarushi's parents are likely to be released on Friday.

Citing that the CBI had failed to prove 'guilt beyond reasonable doubt' in the Aarushi Talwar murder case, the Allahabad High Court on Thursday acquitted parents Nupur and Rajesh Talwar  of murder charges.

After the conviction by a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in 2013, parents of Aarushi, Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar, had appealed to Allahabad High Court.

Aarushi was found murdered at her residence on May 16, 2008, which led to the suspicion that domestic help Hemraj had killed her.

However, a day after Aarushi;s murder, Hemraj was found dead in the terrace.

In 2009, the CBI had handed over the murder case to a new team and suggested a closure of it.

The CBI had suspected Aarushi's father Rajesh Talwar to commit the double murders based on circumstantial evidence, though the CBI did not convict him due to lack of proper evidence.

However, the court rejected the CBI's claim of lack of evidence.

In 2013, the court convicted Aarushi's parents and sentenced the couple to life imprisonment.

The sensational murder case, which shook the nation, drawn diverse opinions from different sections of the society.
