The Allahabad High Court on Thursday acquitted Nupur and Rajesh Talwar in the 2008 murder case of their 14-year-old daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, saying they could not be held guilty as per the circumstances and the evidence on record.

After the verdict, Aarushi's grandfather talked to CNN-News18 and said that he is grateful for the "positive" judgment and he always knew that Nupur and Rajesh were innocent.

Overruling the trial court's judgment, the Allahabad High Court gave the benefit of doubt to the Aarushi's parents.

As per reports, the court is likely to re-evaluate the testimony of key witnesses after the defence had accused the prosecution of tutoring them.

Initially, the UP police had suspected Talwars' servant Hemraj, who was missing after the murder, as the murderer.

However, the court chose to hear the appeals afresh due to contradictions in some submissions made by the CBI. The film was met with stiff criticism from Aarushi's parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, who were awaiting the verdict in the case back when Rahasya was announced. The story is fictitious and follows a CBI investigator (Kay Kay Menon played the character) as he tries to discover who was actually responsible for it.

"The accused Dr Rajesh Talwar and Dr Nupur Talwar are convicted under sections 302 read with section 34 and section 201 read with section 34 IPC".

After talking to Aarushi's friends, the police began to suspect that her parents were involved in her murder. CBI has failed to prove their conviction and they have no chain of evidences to support their claim. They (the Talwar couple) have really suffered.

On May 23, 2008 Rajesh Talwar, father of Aarushi Talwar was arrested for the twin murders.

The three were later freed after no evidence was found against them.

At a point in the film, Irrfan's character Ashwin, the reluctant CBI officer who is handed the case, screams in frustration: Crime scene ko machhli bazaar banake rakkha hai!

"One of the big loopholes in the investigation was that Hemraj's blood was never found in the room", said AP Singh.

Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar were sentenced to life in jail after Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Ghaziabad convicted them for the gruesome killings of their daughter and their domestic help Hemraj.
