In a fresh development in the 2008 Aarushi-Hemraj murder case, the CBI on Thursday approached the Supreme Court challenging the acquittal of the dentist couple, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, by the Allahabad High Court, reported ANI. Earlier, Hemraj’s wife had approached the top court against the Allahabad High Court verdict that had acquitted the couple giving them ‘benefit of the doubt.’
Fourteen-year-old Aarushi was found murdered in her bedroom at the family’s residence in Noida’s Jalvayu Vihar. Police had initially suspected their domestic help, Hemraj, but a day later his body was recovered from the terrace of the same flat. Suspecting it to be a case of honor killing, the Uttar Pradesh police arrested Rajesh and Nupur Talwar. Noida Police alleged that Rajesh had committed the twin murders after finding Aarushi and Hemraj in an “objectionable” position.
However, no forensic or material evidence was provided to substantiate the claim.
