The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday said it would hear afresh the appeals filed by Rajesh and Nupur Talwar challenging their conviction in the murder of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, seven months after reserving its judgement in the matter.
A division bench comprising Justices Bala Krishna Narayana and Arvind Kumar Mishra said it would hear the matter again due to “contradictions” in some submissions made by the CBI in the sensational murder case and fixed August 31 for resuming the hearing.
The court also wants CBI to provide records of the router which was said to be on when the murders were committed.
Aarushi was found dead inside her room, with her throat slit open, in May, 2008. The needle of suspicion had initially pointed towards Hemraj, who had gone missing, but his body was recovered from the terrace of the house two days later.
The UP police didn’t manage the case well and ultimately Mayawati handed over the probe to CBI.
Though the CBI has also not done a great job as they produced contradictory theories about the murders leading to the chaos and condemnation from the court and may be even to wrong conviction. We hope that this time the truth shall triumph.
