08_03_2018-08aarushiNEW DELHI : Five months after the Talwars were acquitted by the Allahabad High Court, The Central Bureau of Investigation on Thursday moved the Supreme Court against the Allahabad High Court’s judgment acquitting Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case last year.The duo were awarded life imprisonment by the lower court in 2013.

Rajesh and Nupur Talwar were cleared of the charge of murdering their daughter Aarushi Talwar.  In its appeal, filed today in the Apex Court, the probe agency has argued that the order of the Allahabad High Court was wrong on multiple counts.

Aarushi was found murdered with her throat slit at her Noida residence on the night of May 16, 2008. The body of domestic help Hemraj was found on the terrace a day later. The Noida Police arrested Dr. Talwar for his alleged involvement.

However, following a public outrage, the case was transferred to the CBI. The agency initially alleged the role of three helps. It later zeroed in on Dr. Talwar and his wife. The Bureau subsequently filed a closure report on the grounds of insufficient prosecutable evidence.
A division bench of the Allahabad High Court last October had acquitted the Talwars of the murder charges.


“The papers have been filed with the Supreme Court’s registry and the matter is scheduled to come up for a hearing on March 12,” said a CBI official.

The Talwars were released from prison in October 2017 after the High Court acquitted them.

The Special Court did not accept the closure report and converted it into a charge sheet against the Talwars, stating that there was enough prosecutable evidence. The two were tried and convicted for the murders. The couple challenged the convictions in the High Court that acquitted them in October last year.(With Agency Inputs ).
