Citing that the CBI had failed to prove "guilt beyond reasonable doubt" in the Aarushi Talwar murder case, the Allahabad High Court on Thursday acquitted parents Nupur and Rajesh Talwar of murder charges. Today, more than nine years after Aarushi and Hemraj's death, the Allahabad High Court is all set to pronounce its verdict in the double-murder case.
As per reports, the court is likely to re-evaluate the testimony of key witnesses after the defence had accused the prosecution of tutoring them.
Fourteen-year-old Aarushi was found dead inside her room in the Talwars' Noida residence with her throat slit in May 2008.
Police initially blamed the missing servant Banjade, only to find his body on the terrace a day later with a similarly cut throat and head wounds.
Noida Police alleged that Rajesh had committed the twin murders after finding Aarushi and Hemraj in an "objectionable" position.
However, the court chose to hear the appeals afresh due to contradictions in some submissions made by the CBI. Therefore, Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar, can not be penalised for the murder case of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.

On May 31, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) took over the case. I am grateful for the acquittal of Rajesh and Nupur. Nupur was recently out on parole for a few weeks following a High Court order on August 29, 2016. The murders of Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj gripped the imagination of the nation, indeed several other parts of the world.
The CBI had suspected Aarushi's father Rajesh Talwar to commit the double murders based on circumstantial evidence, though the CBI did not convict him due to lack of proper evidence.
"They were only present at home that night as parents and were punished".
On June 13, CBI arrested Krishna Thadaraj, an assistant at Rajesh's Noida clinic.
At a point in the film, Irrfan's character Ashwin, the reluctant CBI officer who is handed the case, screams in frustration: Crime scene ko machhli bazaar banake rakkha hai! "The chain of evidence they have showcased is inconclusive". "In fact, they will have to answer a number of questions in the Supreme Court as to why they did not investigate properly".
The CBI court in November 2013 held the Talwars guilty of killing their daughter and Hemraj, and sentenced them to rigorous life imprisonment while also directing them to pay a fine of Rs 10,000 each for the murders.
