Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case: Arguments end,verdict on Nov 25

Dentist couple Nupur and Rajesh Talwar are standing trial for murder of Aarushi and Hemraj.

More than five years after theAarushi Talwar and Hemraj double murder,the verdict in the case is likely to be pronounced on November 25 by a CBI court.

The CBI court on Tuesday reserved for November 25 the verdict in the sensational 2008 double murder case of teenager Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj in which her parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar are accused.

Additional Sessions Judge Shyam Lal reserved the order after the defence completed its final arguments and the CBI submitted its rebuttal in the case which has seen several twists and turns.

Dentist couple Nupur and Rajesh Talwar are standing trial for the murder of their daughter Aarushi and their domestic help Hemraj on the night of May 15-16,2008.


Trial in the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case began 15 months ago at Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh after the court rejected the closure report filed by CBI.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI),which has been investigated the case,has accused the Talwars of murder and destruction of evidence.

The investigating agency maintained its stand that it was the dentist couple who had killed their teenaged daughter Aarushi and their servant as circumstantial evidence was against them.

On the other hand,the defence lawyers alleged that Talwars had been framed in the case.

Fourteen-year-old Aarushi was found murdered in her apartment in Noida on May 16,2008. The next day,the body of Hemraj was discovered on the apartment’s terrace.

The CBI in its final argument told the special court hearing the Aarushi case that the scene of crime was “completely dressed up” and the teenage girl’s body was tampered with by dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar on the night of crime.

As per CBI’s theory,Aarushi had a physical relationship with Hemraj,and Nupur had cleaned up her private parts to hide this fact.

The defence in the case on Monday told the CBI court that the probe agency in the case had “tampered” with some evidences which were seized during the course of investigation to “implicate” Talwars.
