Supreme Court admits plea by Hemraj's wife in Aarushi murder case

The CBI in its plea told the Supreme Court that the Allahabad High Court's decision in October past year was "wrong" on several counts.

A bench of Justices Ranjan Gogoi and R. Ba-numathi, while admitting the appeals of Hem-raj's wife Khumkala Ban-jade and the CBI, issued notice to the Talwars seeking their response.

After Aarushi was found murdered in her bedroom, Hemraj was initially considered a suspect.

On appeal, the High Court set aside the conviction, saying they could not be held guilty on the basis of the evidence on record.

The Supreme Court on Monday admitted appe-als against the Allaha-bad high court verdict acquitting dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case, almost six months after they were set free in October last.

Upon hearing the verdict, Banjade said she was not surprised but saddened that the court let the Talwars walk free and cancelled their life sentence for lack of material evidence.

HC had upheld an appeal by the Talwar's against a Ghaziabad CBI court order awarding them life imprisonment on November 26, 2013, bringing an end to a long ordeal of the couple.

On October 12, a bench of Justices B K Narayana and A K Mishra of the Allahabad High Court had acquitted the dentist couple by giving them the "benefit of doubt" in the murder which took place in Jalvayu Vihar home in Noida on May 16, 2008.

Later, the CBI also filed an appeal against the acquittal of Talwars in the case. However, the case took a new turn when his body was recovered the next day from the terrace of the house where the family lived in Noida.

The ex-judge had moved the apex court praying that some "adverse comments/strictures" made by the High Court "against" him while acquitting the accused in the case be expunged. Hemraj was the Talwars' domestic help.

Both parents had denied charges of murder and instead insisted they were victims of botched investigations and unfair media coverage.
