The Allahabad High Court on Thursday acquitted dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the 2008 murder of their teenage daughter Aarushi.

 A special CBI court had in 2013 convicted the parents of murdering her.

 

The Talwars had pleaded not guilty and appealed in the Allahabad High Court against the verdict of the Ghaziabad special CBI court.

 

A Division Bench, comprising Justices A.K. Mishra and B.K. Narayana, gave the benefit of doubt in favour of the Talwars, saying the parents didn't murder their child.

 

The court said the CBI had failed to prove guilty beyond doubt accepting the argument of counsel for the Talwars that the case against them was based entirely on circumstantial evidence and that they were innocent.

 

They were also convicted of the destruction of evidence with common intent, while Rajesh was additionally convicted of giving a false statement to the police.

 

 

The case was handed over to the CBI after the Noida police were criticised for a ''botched up'' investigation, leading to the loss of crucial forensic evidence.
