Aarushi murder case appeal: HC likely to deliver verdict

Press Trust of India  |  Allahabad 

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

The couple were awarded life sentence by a special in 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 comprising justices B 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' 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 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).
