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

The Allahabad High Court on Thursday acquitted the Talwar couple in the 2008 murder case of their daughter Aarushi and their domestic help Hemraj, giving them the benefit of doubt.

The movie was a retelling of investigation theories behind the Aarushi Talwar-Hemraj murder case. In a rare interview that Nupur Talwar had given from the jail almost two years back, Ms Talwar had spoken about her plans to work in the non-profit sector once she was released, whenever she was released.

# The investigation on the case was botched up.

In January 2014, the Talwars moved appealed to the Allahabad High Court, challenging the CBI court's conviction and sentence.

"However, it still pains me when I think about the precious years lost in prison and the emotional trauma that the parents had to go through, so much so that they couldn't even mourn their own daughter's demise".

Pronouncing their verdict in a packed court room, justices Narayana and Mishra said, "From the facts and evidence on record, we find neither the circumstances nor evidence are consistent, and circumstances did not complete a chain showing involvement of appellants in the incident".

The trial court had stated 26 points of evidence on the basis of which it found the couple guilty. The CBI did not immediately say if it would appeal against the high court judgement.

# We are waiting for the copy of the judgement. "We are really grateful to the High Court for having aquitted and ending the injustice meted out to them". Interestingly, they were given life sentence by a CBI court because of lack of evidence.

Aarushi was found murdered in her bedroom in the flat in Jal Vayu Vihar On May 16, 2008. The body of the family's domestic help, Hemraj, who was initially suspected of her murder, was found in a pool of blood on the terrace the following day.

In 2009, the CBI had handed over the murder case to a new team and suggested a closure of it. It, however, added that there was insufficient evidence against them.
