New Delhi, October 12: The Central Bureau of Investigation is likely to move Supreme Court against Allahabad High Court order acquitting Rajesh Talwar and Nupur in a double murder case of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj. “We will pursue the order and take a decision,” the CBI said.
The couple is likely to walk out of the Ghaziabad’s Dasna Jail by Friday afternoon. Also read: Aarushi Talwar-Hemraj Murder: Timeline of The Case
The verdict came after a nine-year ordeal of the parents who were found guilty by a CBI court of murdering 14-year-old Aarushi in a fit of rage.
A division bench of the court comprising Justices BK Narayana and AK Mishra upheld the Talwars’ appeal against the CBI court order sentencing them to life on November 26, 2013.
Aarushi was found dead inside her room in the Talwars’ Noida residence with her throat slit in May 2008. The needle of suspicion had initially moved towards domestic help 45-year-old Hemraj, who had gone missing but his body was also recovered from the terrace of the house two days later.
The Uttar Pradesh Police also drew flak over shoddy investigation into the case.
