The Allahabad High Court is expected to deliver its verdict tomorrow on an appeal filed by Rajesh and Nupur Talwar challenging a CBI court order convicting them for the murder of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj in 2008.

The couple were awarded life sentence by a special CBI court in Ghaziabad on November 26, 2013, a day after their conviction. Nupur and Rajesh Talwar are at present serving their sentence in Ghaziabad’s Dasna jail.

A division bench of the high court comprising justices B K Narayana and A K Mishra had reserved its judgement on September 7 on the appeal filed by the dentist couple, fixing October 12 as the date for the verdict.

Fourteen-year-old Aarushi was found dead inside her room in the Talwars’ Noida residence with her throat slit in May 2008. The needle of suspicion had initially moved towards 45-year-old Hemraj, who had gone missing but his body was recovered from the terrace of the house two days later.

As the Uttar Pradesh Police drew flak over shoddy investigation into the case which was making national headlines, the then chief minister Mayawati handed over the probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

    VERDICT and TRUTH are two separate English terms with separate meanings of there own. TRUTH is thousands were killed in 1984 riots. VERDICT will never come out in a majority of those 1984 riots cases. Even in cases that do generate VERDICT, TRUTH may possibly be lacking in the VERDICT.

      HC please do the right thing. The parents are innocent, acquit them, also please order a fresh probe into finding the real murderer. Ask CBI to use latest forensic technology. Should also investigate the motives and behavior of the then Noida police chief whose absurd theory was taken as truth by a dimwitted CBI judge.
