Rajesh Talwar attends to patients in jail, wife spends time in creche

DNA Edit Justice for Talwars

NOIDA: The medical fraternity today hailed the Allahabad High Court verdict clearing the Talwars in the Aarushi-Hemraj killing, but domestic helps here feel that the dentist couple got away with murder thanks to their affluence.The high court today said neither the circumstances nor the evidence was enough to hold Nupur and Rajesh Talwar guilty in the 2008 murder of their teenage daughter and Nepalese domestic help.The Talwars' neighbours appeared guarded in their reaction, with most avoiding comment.One of residents near their Sector 25 home, D Singh, said, "If not the Talwars, then who killed Arushi?" It was also learned that both Nupur and Rajesh Talwar had skipped their breakfast on Thursday morning, according to reports.

The court also found no reason "to fasten the appellants with the guilt of double murder merely on the proof of the deceased being last seen alive with the appellants in their flat on the night of May 15, 2008 specially in view of the alternative hypothesis of the double murder covenanted in the prosecution case itself, " it said.

Jailor of the Ghaziabad's Dasna prison Dadhiram Maurya said the Talwars felt they have got justice and were praying. Interestingly, it was CBI who had filed a closure report in this case before the Ghaziabad court which was later converted into charge sheet by the court after which the Talwars were eventually convicted for murdering their own daughter.

Pronouncing the verdict in a packed courtroom, the bench said that it is a fit case where the benefit of the doubt can be given to the appellants and set aside the judgement of the CBI court convicting the Talwars.

Aarushi was found dead inside her room in the Talwars' Noida residence with her throat slit in May 2008.

After widespread outrage, the case was transferred from the Uttar Pradesh Police to the CBI that exonerated the parents and suspected the Talwars' assistant Krishna along with two domestic servants, Rajkumar Sharma and Vijay Mandal.

Irrfan played the character of an investigating officer in the Meghna Gulzar film, inspired by the Aarushi Talwar murder case.

The couple were awarded life sentence by a special CBI court in Ghaziabad on November 26, 2013, a day after their conviction.

Based mostly on circumstantial evidence, the parents of Aarushi, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar were accused of the double murders.
