Aarushi verdict..Talwars say it is end of 10-yr suffering

New Delhi, Oct 12: The Talwar family has come out to express happiness and satisfaction  after the acquittal of Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar in the murder case of Aarushi Talwar and Hemraj, who was domestic help of the Talwars. The family also thanked the judiciary and said that their stand has bee vindicated. 

"Grateful to judiciary. Have seen them suffering. It has been really testing. I am emotionally drained," said  Nupur's father BG Chitnis. While the other family members said that it was an end of a long suffering. "Deeply relieved. Had suffered for 10 years. Grateful to HC for acquitting them," said Rajesh Talwar's  sister-in-law Vandana Talwar.

Earlier, the  dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar were on Thursday acquitted in the double murder of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj in 2008 by the Allahabad High Court which gave them the benefit of doubt, but left questions unanswered about who killed them.

The couple had been awarded life sentence by a special CBI court in Ghaziabad in 2013. They had appealed against the decision.

Their lawyer Rebecca John said the evidence presented by the CBI "did not stand judicial scrutiny and that is the end of it". The couple was acquitted by the Allahabad High Court bench of Justices B.K. Narayana and A.K. Mishra.

Pinaki Misra, another defence counsel, said the judgement of the CBI court was "absolutely perverse and the High Court has set it aside correctly".

The acquittal of the Talwars has further deepened the mystery of the May 16-17, 2008 murders.

Aarushi, a teenager, was found murdered in her bedroom in Noida's Jalvayu Vihar on May 16. The body of the domestic help was found in a pool of blood a day later on the terrace of the house.
