Aarushi murder case is one of the most controversial and talked about whodunit crime cases that could not be entirely solved. It did see a lot of twists and turns and got many movie directors making movies about the case as well as a book release on it. Last October the parents of Aarushi-Talwar, got acquitted from the murder on account of lack of full-proof evidence, but CBI wasn’t in favor of this decision of the court. A few days ago, after almost one year of the acquittal of the dentist couple Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, the High Court finally has admitted the appeal of CBI against the acquittal of Aarushi’s Parents.
Hemraj’s wife was the first to file the petition in the court against the couple saying that they were acquitted wrongly. After a few days even the CBI filed for a review saying that the acquittal was wrong on ‘many counts’. The Talwar’s have already spent four years in jail after a CBI court had convicted them of the double murder with a life sentence.
Many investigators believe that the murder was committed by an insider because there was no sign of forced entry into the apartment and the victims were in the presence of the couple before the murder occurred. Though the court has not denied the carelessness in the investigation and evidence as well.
The Aarushi murder case investigations had delved into three angles associated with the crime
- Couple Parents as suspects of the crime
The UP police suspected the couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar during the investigation due to a number of clues and circumstantial gap indicating their involvement.
- Three intruders namely Krishna, Vijay Mandal and Rajkumar as suspects
Their role in the crime was a possibility because they had easy access to the house and Krishna, one of the helpers of Dr Rajesh was scolded for making mould correctly.
- Other intruders besides servants as suspects
The possibility of involvement of intruders besides the servants was ruled out during the investigation as there was no circumstantial evidence to prove the same.
But, there was not enough evidence to prove whether the servants had created the crime or the parents. Hence, the CBI had asked for closure of case citing reasons of insufficient evidence in 2017 after 2.5 years of botched of investigations. But, the report file in Ghaziabad was rejected but the couple convicted by the Ghaziabad Trial court in the case and sentenced to life term. But, they were ultimately acquitted in October last year citing lack of key evidence in the matter. The Talvar couple has denied that they committed the crime and said that they were only victims of a botched up investigation as well as unfair media coverage.
Now, the Supreme court has admitted the review of double murder case filed by CBI and Hemraj’s wife and sent a notice to the dentist couple for reviewing it.
