The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will study the Allahabad High Court order acquitting dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the 2008 murder of their teenage daughter to decide future course of action.

“CBI says it will study high court order in Aarushi case and decide future course of action,” an official of the premier investigative agency that probed the case said.

A special CBI court had in 2013 convicted the parents of murdering her.

The Talwars had pleaded not guilty and appealed in the Allahabad High Court against the verdict of the Ghaziabad special CBI court.

The CBI now has the option to approach the Supreme Court against the high court’s judgment.
