Ghaziabad, 12 November
A CBI court today reserved for 25 November the verdict in the sensational 2008 double murder case of teenager Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj in which her parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar are accused.
Additional Sessions Judge Shyam Lal reserved the order after the defence completed its final arguments and the CBI submitted its rebuttal in the case which has seen several twists and turns.
The CBI today maintained its stand that it was the dentist couple who had killed their teenaged daughter Aarushi and their servant as circumstantial evidence was against them. On the other hand, the defence lawyers alleged that Talwars had been framed in the case.
Trial in the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case began 15 months ago at Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh after the court rejected the closure report filed by the CBI.
Fourteen-year-old Aarushi was found murdered in her apartment in Noida on 16 May 2008. The next day, the body of Hemraj was discovered on the apartment’s terrace.
Rajesh and Nupur were in the house on the night the crime was committed.
