Allahabad: The Allahabad High Court on Wednesday reserved its judgment on an appeal filed by dentist couple
Rajesh and Nupur Talwar challenging their conviction by a CBI court in 2013 for the murder of their 14-year-old daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.
A division bench comprising justices Bala Krishna Narayana and Arvind Kumar Mishra reserved judgment on the criminal appeal challenging the order passed by special CBI court at Ghaziabad on November 26, 2013 whereby the couple had been awarded life sentence for the double-murder in May 2008.
The couple is currently lodged at Dasna jail in Ghaziabad. Nupur was recently out on parole for a few weeks following a High Court order on August 29, 2016.
Aarushi was found murdered inside the Talwars' residence in May 2008 with her throat slit. Initially, the needle of suspicion had moved towards their 45-year-old Hemraj who was missing for a couple of says before his body was found by the police on the terrace of their house.
Uttar Pradesh police had drawn flak for its handling of the high-profile murder case following which the state government had recommended CBI probe into the matter.
