HC verdict likely today on Aarushi case appeal

HC verdict likely today on Aarushi case appeal

Fourteen-year-old Aarushi was found dead inside her room at the Talwars' Noida residence with her throat slit on May 15, 2008.

Jail sources said the couple were likely to walk free on Friday. "Once the basis of the prosecution was knocked out because it was unbelievable, then there was no motive". The CBI said that they are waiting for a copy of the judgment and will decide the next course of action after studying it.

"The law presumes innocence until guilt is established beyond reasonable doubt".

"Also when is an alternative hypothesis (of some other killer), the benefit of doubt again goes to the accused".

Since then Rajesh and Nupur Talwar are imprisoned in Ghaziabad's Dasna jail. Their relatives expressed happiness over the judgement, saying finally the ordeal is over for the couple. Rajesh Talwar got angry and kiled Aarushi accidentally.

Though Rajesh Talwar's initial bail plea was refused by a Ghaziabad magistrate, he was granted bail on July 12.

After the verdict, Aarushi's grandfather talked to CNN-News18 and said that he is grateful for the "positive" judgment and he always knew that Nupur and Rajesh were innocent.

Russia's Embassy in the United States earlier said it had lodged a protest to the USA demanding the flags be immediately placed back.

Today's acquittal came from the Allahabad High Court and cancels the life sentence given to Aarushi's parents by a lower court in 2015.

Pinaki Mishra, the lawyer who appeared for the couple in the Supreme Court, said the CBI will have no case to argue in the Supreme Court.

The CBI court did not accept the closure report. According to the Prison Superintendent of Dasna jail in Ghaziabad where the couple is now lodged, the release formalities will be carried out one the HC's order is received.

Aarushi was found murdered in her bedroom, following which Hemraj was initially a suspect. Journalists were allowed all access to the terrace when Hemraj's body was found.

On May 23, 2008 Rajesh Talwar, father of Aarushi Talwar was arrested for the twin murders.

As preliminary investigations revealed that both murders were done with surgical precision, an insider was suspected of being involved in the killings.

"They were only present at home that night as parents and were punished". Though the servants were acquitted, the Talwars remained prime suspects. They were also convicted for destruction of evidence. Find us on Facebook too!
