Police made 'dog's breakfast' of Aarushi case: Omar Abdullah

Arun Kumar, who had headed a CBI team into the 2008 Aarushi-Hemraj murder case, called for a review of the criminal justice system following the acquittal of Nupur and Rajesh Talwar by the Allahabad High Court on Thursday.

The verdict ends a nine-year ordeal of the parents who were found guilty by a CBI court of murdering 14-year-old Aarushi.

The Uttar Pradesh Police accused Rajesh Talwar of killing his daughter in a fit of rage after he allegedly found Aarushi in a compromising situation with Hemraj. The Talwars were a resident of Jal Vayu Vihar in Noida.

Aditya Wadhwa, another defence lawyer, said just because there was no other person present in the room, where Aarushi was found dead, it was unjustified to blame the parents for the murder. "After having said all along that the Talwars wiped the stains off one club, the prosecutors told the court that it wasn't that club, after all, it was another club - one like all the rest, with no evidence of having been wiped clean", he wrote. The film argued that Aarushi's parents were not involved in her murder and knew nothing of what exactly happened that night.

The case was in headlines for months, and every time it came up with some new evidences and led to number of conspiracy theories; even a Bollywood movie was made on it. "Until there is conclusive evidence, which was not found in this case, the conviction can not be upheld". However, his body too was found in a pool of blood a day later on the terrace of the house.

The CBI court had relied on circumstantial evidence to convict the couple in the absence of any motive.

The judgement of the CBI court dated November 26, 2013 was challenged by Nupur Talwar and Rajesh Talwar by filing separate appeals.

According to the news agency ANI, the Allahabad High Court was of the view that as per circumstances and evidence on record, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar can't be held guilty.

According to the Newspaper, The Talwars were sentenced to life in prison in 2013.

Later in 2012, his wife Nupur surrendered before a Ghaziabad court before trial and was also sent to Dasna Jail. Both are in Dasna jail now.
