Parents are the secured shelter children run into, to hide from every danger. Contradicting this omnipresent statement, Aarushi Talwar’s verdict of CBI court in 2013 posed a threat to truth. A 14-year-old teenager, Aarushi Talwar, daughter of Rajesh (Dentist) and Nupur Talwar was found dead in her room with a slit on the throat in the pool of blood on May 16, 2008.
Primarily, Hemraj the citizen of Nepal who was working as domestic help in the house was suspected of murder. Later, his body was found on the terrace of Talwar’s house. Based on the primary evidence, Rajesh Talwar was arrested by police. They produced the precision of the cut on the throat by a surgical knife against Rajesh Talwar.
On May 31, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) took over the case conducting their set of investigations. By that time there was no physical evidence available. Two sets of CBI conducted the investigation. The former produced a theoretical evidence where Rajesh Talwar was acquitted and the real criminal were yet to be found. The former investigation team also convicted Krishna, Rajesh Talwar’s compounder, Raj Kumar, the servant of a doctor friend and Vijay Mandal, Talwar’s neighbour’s servant as slaughterers.
The Special Ghaziabad Court rejected the closure and ordered another investigation, which was done by the later team. The second team provided a circumstantial evidence proving Rajesh Talwar as double-murderer and his wife for helping him. After crushing between jail and bail, CBI court taking later team’s theory sentenced Rajesh and Nupur Talwar for a lifetime.
After 9 years, Allahabad High Court acquitted Aarushi’s parents in the horrific killings. Today they were acquitted stating, all the pieces of evidence are circumstantial and there is not strong proof against them. The court believed that there is access from outside into the house that night and there are more than three people present there.
Talwar’s family is grateful to the judgment of the Allahabad High Court. Emotionally drained in these Nine significant years, Talwar’s not only lost their soul of life, Aarushi but also time to grieve at the death of their daughter. Even though their time in jail is terminated, their fight to find real culprits continues.
CBI is planning to appeal to Supreme court against the judgement in Allahabad High Court. It appears as if the troubled waters are yet to raise. They still had to prove their innocence on papers and find the real culprits.
The Aarushi’s case was scripted and released as a movie in 2015. As people say ‘Truth is always more unbelievable than fiction’, and the truth of Aarushi and Hemraj’s murder is yet to be revealed.
All our prayers are with the Talwar’s and our support for justice. #Aarushiwantsjustice.
