In the Aarushi- Hemraj murder case, the Allahabad High Court acquitted Aarushi’s parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar on Thursday. The trial court sentenced them to life imprisonment but today Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar will be released from jail. The High Court made a strict comment on the trial court’s decision and acquitted the Talwar couple due to lack of evidence.While announcing the verdict, the High Court mentioned negligence in the CBI investigation and said that evidence was neither investigated properly nor they were verified. Commenting on the judges of the special CBI trial court, the High Court said that it seems like the CBI is working like a film director.Talwars could not be held guilty just because they were present in the house when the murders took place, the bench said, adding that the CBI had not provided evidence that proved the charges beyond doubt.Talwar’s lawyer from the trial stage said that both judges have written separate but concurring judgments while examining the evidence relied upon by the trial court. “The HC has pointed out that this is a case where theory of an alternative murderer was covenanted in the prosecution story itself, that is, the CBI has from the beginning agreed there could be someone else who committed the crime,” Mir said, adding that the exact reasoning that led the HC to reverse the trial court ruling will emerge once the judgments are made public, most probably on Friday.After the High Court’s decision, the CBI has shocked. The CBI says that they haven’t get a copy of the decision yet. After reading the copy of the verdict, further appeals in the Supreme Court will be considered.
