Dentists Rajesh and Nupur Talwar cleared of daughter Aarushi's murder

LIVE updates – Aarushi murder case Allahabad High Court to deliver verdict at 2.45pm

After dentist couple Nupur and Rajesh Talwar were found innocent of murdering their only child Aarushi and their domestic help, Hemraj, the man who headed the CBI for a key part of the investigation told NDTV, "There were loopholes in our investigation".

Justice BK Narayana and justice AK Mishra gave their verdict in September in response to the appeal which was filed by parents of Aarushi, Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, who have been sentenced to life imprisonment by the CBI court of Ghaziabad.

Thanking the court for the verdict, Talwar's kin said: "I am grateful to the High Court for ending an injustice".

On May 16, 2008, Aarushi Talwar, the only daughter of the dentist couple was found murdered in her bedroom in their Noida residence. But his body was recovered from the terrace of the house a day later.

Initially, the UP police had suspected Talwars' servant Hemraj, who was missing after the murder, as the murderer.

The court while acquitting Talwars said that there was no chain of evidence and it can't convict on the basis of mere suspicion. The film was met with stiff criticism from Aarushi's parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, who were awaiting the verdict in the case back when Rahasya was announced.

Calling CBI's doubt of Rajesh being the murderer as baseless, the parents opposed the closure of case.

Defence in High Court: There was a friendly entry.

The Supreme Court also said the Talwar couple would have to undergo the murder trial before the Ghaziabad magistrate.

The Allahabad High Court ended the couple's nine-year ordeal by saying they could not be held guilty given the circumstances and evidence on record. Rajesh Talwar was similarly arrested, then released, then re-arrested. The CBI court said they had killed Aarushi in a fit of rage because they suspected her of having an affair with Hemraj.

"They were only present at home that night as parents and were punished".

India has been riveted by the case ever since the first details of the double murder in the affluent New Delhi suburb of Noida emerged.

"One of the big loopholes in the investigation was that Hemraj's blood was never found in the room", said AP Singh. The police was accused by many for not doing their investigation properly and they were even accused of tempering the evidences.
