Aarushi Murder Case: Rajesh and Nupur Talwar walk out from jail

| | 16 Oct 2017, 05:21 pm
New Delhi, Oct 15 (IBNS): After four years in jail, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar were released from prison on Monday.

Rajesh and Nupur Talwar have been acquitted of charges of killing their 14-year old daughter Aarushi and servant Hemraj

Aarushi's parents, Rajesh and Nupur, were convicted by a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in 2013.

The Allahabad High Court judge, who acquitted Aarushi's parents of the double murder charges on Thursday, said there were no concrete evidences against Rajesh and Nupur Talwar.

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.

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