"Any person after spending this amount of jail will feel happy to get freedom". The Talwars were sentenced to life in prison in 2013. "They are not guilty", he said. She claimed the whole case was based on "innuendos" and would "not have carried through".
Fourteen-year-old Aarushi was found dead inside her room at the Talwars' Noida residence with her throat slit on May 15, 2008.
John hoped that the Talwars, who have been in media spotlight for over nine years, will be allowed privacy after their release from the jail.
Tanveer Ahmed Mir, lawyer for the couple, said they were able to prove that the CBI case had no basis or legs to stand on. While the initial needle of suspicion pointed to the involvement of their domestic help Hemraj, his dead body was also found on the terrace a day later.
After the state police failed to crack the case, the then UP chief minister Mayawati recommended a CBI probe to resolve the murder mystery. Two separate CBI teams reached opposing conclusions. The story is fictitious and follows a CBI investigator (Kay Kay Menon played the character) as he tries to discover who was actually responsible for it. 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. Rajesh Talwar deliberately hid the club and later cleaned and destroyed evidence before handing it to CBI.
An Indian court on Thursday overturned the conviction of a dentist couple for the murder of their teenage daughter and the family servant for lack of material evidence, their lawyer said. After their prosecution, the Talwars were convicted of the murders by the CBI court. "In fact, they will have to answer a number of questions in the Supreme Court as to why they did not investigate properly". The country saw the various points of view, albeit through director Meghna Gulzar's point of view, the way the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder was dealt with.
