In the sensational murder case of 14-year-old Arushi Talwar, parents of the victim Rajesh and Nupur were today acquitted by the Allahabad High Court ANI reported. The court held that on the basis of the circumstances and evidence on record, the couple can not be held guilty of the murder.

The nine-year trial in the murder of their daughter Aarushi had left the Talwar couple emotionally drained, Nupur Talwars father said today, thanking the judiciary for acquitting them. "We always knew they were not guilty", Aarushi's maternal grandfather B.G. Chitnis said.

# Allahabad High Court says that that there was no chain of evidence and we can't convict on the basis of mere suspicion.

On May 23, 2008, Rajesh Talwar was arrested and was kept in Dasna jail; on July 11, 2008, he was let off. Nupur surrendered in Ghaziabad court on April 30, 2012.

The couple were not in the packed court for the hearing.

The couple was now lodged in Dasna jail in Ghaziabad.

"The high court observed that they have been punished wrongly. So they were happy after they were told about the news", he said. It initially absolved the parents of conspiracy and murder but later held them responsible. She claimed the whole case was based on "innuendos" and would "not have carried through". "The evidence was weak", declared the lawyer. The police found her with her throat slit and injuries on her head.

Noida Police suspected the two murders were committed by an insider and said the crimes bore "surgical precision". The house help, Hemraj, hailed from Nepal.

When the name of former domestic help Vishnu Sharma came up in the case, the Delhi Police joined the probe.

This was introduced belatedly by Investigating Officer of CBI team 2 Kaul.

Both Nupur Talwar and Rajesh Talwar were found guilty of murdering Aarushi and the helper of the house Hemraj.

Vandana Talwar, Aarushis aunt, said the entire family had suffered for almost a decade as the case dragged on.

Sen cited several other reasons in this article, such as complete disregard for forensic science and record-keeping by presenting unsealed evidence, manipulation of photographic evidence, etc, all of which suggest that the investigation was compromised.

As the investigation continued, narco-analysis tests were conducted on the Talwars. People also questioned the shoddy investigation of the case. Talwar was not charged due to lack of evidence. They had later appealed the decision. They were also convicted for destruction of evidence.

In January 2014, the Talwars moved the Allahabad High Court challenging the CBI court's conviction and sentence.
