Aarushi murder case: SC admits plea against acquittal of Talwar couple

The Supreme Court today admitted an appeal against the acquittal of dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the 2008 twin murder case of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj. 

The plea was filed by Khumkala Banjade, the wife of Hemraj.

 A bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi issued a notice to the dentist couple, who were acquitted by the Allahabad High Court in the twin murder case in October last year.

Banjade had filed an appeal in December last year against the Talwars acquittal in the case.

Later, the CBI also filed an appeal against the acquittal of Talwars.

On October 12 last year, the high court acquitted the couple saying they could not be held guilty on the basis of the evidence on record. 

A CBI court at Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh had sentenced the Talwars to life imprisonment on November 26, 2013 in connection with the case.

Before the high court order, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar were serving life sentences in Ghaziabad's Dasna jail.

Fourteen-year-old 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 45- year-old Hemraj, who had gone missing but his body was recovered from the terrace of the house two days later.
