New Delhi/November 25
After several twists and turns in five year-old murder mystery of Arushi Talwar and domestic help Hemraj, a CBI court on Monday held teenaged girl’s parents guilty for murdering their daughter and servant.
Special Judge S Lal, in his decision, held that the parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar had murdered their daughter and servant and the quantum of sentence in the case will be pronounced tommorrow.
Talwars were booked by CBI on charges of murder and destruction of evidence in the killing of their 14-year-old daughter, Arushi and servant, Hemraj on the intervening night of May 15-16, 2008 at their Jalvayu Vihar residence in Noida.
In the initial investigations, UP police has contended that Rajesh Talwar had murdered their daughter after he found them in objectionable position but after media scrutiny in the case, UP government led by the then Chief Minister Mayawati handed over the probe to CBI. The CBI team led Joint Director Arun Kumar had first blamed Krishna Thadarai, a worker at Talwar’s clinic, his friend Rajkumar and Talwar’s driver Vijay Mandal for the murder but later they were acquitted by the court after the CBI court had asked the investigating agencies to probe the role the Talwars.
CBI had then blamed the Talwar couple for destroying evidence and murdering their daughter and servant after they discovered that forensic points out towards their role as the way murders were committed suggests collusion of Rajesh and Nupur Talwar.
