New Delhi [India], October 14 (ANI): Rajesh and Nupur Talwar's lawyer Tanvir Mir Ahmed on Saturday said that he will produce a copy of the Allahabad High Court order to the concerned special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Ghaziabad on Monday for expeditious work in releasing of Aarushi Talwar's parents.
"We have received today a copy of the Allahabad High Court order. We will produce it to the concerned special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Ghaziabad on Monday for expeditious work in releasing my clients," Tanvir told ANI.
He further said, "Dr Talwars are very happy that they would be released on Monday after all the court and jail formalities would be over. Both Rajesh and Nupur Talwar are innocent in the case and it was proved by the court."
The order, however, failed to bring a closure to the case and the public opinion remained divided, even after years of the conviction.
On May 16, 2008, Aarushi was found murdered inside her bedroom in the flat in Jal Vayu Vihar - her throat slit with surgical precision.
It was initially suspected that house help Hemraj had killed Aarushi. However, the case took a shocking turn when Hemraj's body was recovered two days later from the terrace of the same flat.
The police then began to suspect the Talwars and said Rajesh had murdered the two after finding them in an "objectionable" position.
The accusations enraged the Talwars and friends, who accused the police of framing the dentist couple in order to cover up a botched investigation.
After widespread outrage, the case was transferred from the Uttar Pradesh Police to the CBI that exonerated the parents and suspected the Talwars' assistant Krishna along with two domestic servants, Rajkumar Sharma and Vijay Mandal.
In 2009, the CBI handed over the investigation to a new team, which recommended closing the case due to critical gaps in investigation.
Based on circumstantial evidence, it named Rajesh as the sole suspect, but refused to charge him due to lack of evidence.
Rajesh was first arrested by the Uttar Pradesh Police on May 23, 2008 after which he was lodged at Dasna Jail and let off on July 11, 2008.
Later in 2012, his wife Nupur surrendered before a Ghaziabad court before trial and was also sent to Dasna Jail. (ANI)
