In the immediate aftermath of the judgement being read out, CBI counsel told judgement being read out, CBI counsel told Republic TV that they will decide on an appeal after seeing the order.
Tanveer Ahmed Mir, Talwars' laywer told Republic TV, "At the time when the verdict was announced, both the honourable judges clearly said that there was an alternative theory of murderers in this case."
SL Vaya, who conducted the Narco test on the Talwars, told Republic TV, "Couldn't find any indication that they knew what was going on in other room."
The couple were awarded life sentence by a special CBI court at Ghaziabad on November 26, 2013, a day after their conviction and were serving their sentence in Ghaziabad's Dasna jail. A division bench of the high court comprising justices B K Narayana and A K Mishra had reserved its judgment on September 7 on the appeal filed by the dentist couple, fixing October 12 as the date for the verdict.
Fourteen-year-old Aarushi Talwar, daughter of a dentist couple, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, was found dead in the Talwars' Noida residence with her throat slit in May 2008. While police officials initially suspected 45- year-old Hemraj, his body was recovered from the terrace of the house two days later.
Now, the question which arises is #WhoKilledAarushi?
