Some on twitter ask: 'Who killed Aarushi?'

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The acquittal of the Talwar couple in the 2008 Aarushi case left the twitter abuzz the whole day, with some hailing the verdict while others wondering 'who killed Aarushi?'

The High judgement drew reactions from a cross-section of twitter users- politicians, actors, commoners.


"Don't know who killed #Arushi & will probably never know but what I do know is the police made a total dogs breakfast of the investigation," former chief minister tweeted.

actor Kabir Bedi welcomed the verdict that went in favour of the teenage girl's parents, as the said neither the circumstances nor the evidence was enough to hold them guilty.

"ACQUITTED!!! Rajesh and Nupur Talwar not guilty of #Aarushi's Finally, justice prevails, nightmare ends. #AarushiVerdict," he tweeted.

The judgment also left some twitter users with the question-- 'Who killed Aarushi?' Some of them wondered if the case will ever be untangled?

"They lost their daughter. Spent a decade like criminals. We still don't know who murdered Aarushi and Hemraj. Where's the justice?" asked a user with the twitter handle @Kritika- Kamra.

@AnkitTiwari009 wrote: "Bt then d question arises, who killked Aarushi? In 2013 I was den a kind of kid, bt now a father of 3 yrs old, feeling pain (sic)."

The High acquitted Nupur and Rajesh Talwar in the 2008 of their teenage daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.

The verdict ends, at least for now, the nine-year ordeal of the Noida couple who were sentenced to life by a Ghaziabad CBI on November 28, 2013 for the double that not only transfixed but also shook the nation with its element of filicide.
