We thank the judiciary: Talwar family members after Aarushi murder case verdict

LIVE updates – Aarushi murder case Allahabad High Court to deliver verdict at 2.45pm

Noida: On Thursday, the Allahabad High Court acquitted Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Tawalr, who were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment by a Ghaziabad CBI court for killing their 14-year old daughter Aarushi Talwar.

Twitter was abuzz with reactions after Rajesh and Nupur Talwar were acquitted in Aarushi and Hemraj murder case. The couple was awarded life sentence by a special CBI court in Ghaziabad on November 26, 2013, a day after their conviction. In a rare interview that Nupur Talwar had given from the jail almost two years back, Ms Talwar had spoken about her plans to work in the non-profit sector once she was released, whenever she was released.

According to the news agency ANI, the Allahabad High Court was of the view that as per circumstances and evidence on record, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar can't be held guilty.

"However, it still pains me when I think about the precious years lost in prison and the emotional trauma that the parents had to go through, so much so that they couldn't even mourn their own daughter's demise".

CBI to appeal in Supreme Court? .

Although the court verdict has put an end to an nearly a decade long legal process, several people on Twitter asked the most pressing question of 'who killed Aarushi?' Some of them even expressed concern if the Aarushi murder case will ever be untangled? "We are awaiting for the detailed judgement copy".

The three were later freed after no evidence was found against them.

# Allahabad High Court says that that there was no chain of evidence and we can't convict on the basis of mere suspicion. "We are really grateful to the High Court for having aquitted and ending the injustice meted out to them".

On May 16, 2008, Aarushi was found murdered inside her bedroom in the flat in Jal Vayu Vihar - her throat slit with surgical precision. The door of the terrace was found locked from inside.

The case was handed over to the CBI after the Noida police was criticised for a botched investigation with loss of crucial forensic evidence.

This allegation by the police made the Talwars and their family members angry, and they accused the police of putting false charges just because they were not able to solve the murder case.
