Hemraj, the family's domestic help, was suspected of the murder. On 17th May, 2008, Hemraj was found in a pool of blood on the terrace of the flat. On 23rd May, Rajesh Talwar, Arushi's father, was arrested for double murders. Lie detection test of both parents, Dr. Rajesh Talwar and Dr. Nupur Talwar was conducted.
After more than 9 years, both Dr. Rajesh and Dr. Nupur have been found not guilty by the Allahabad High Court.
While pronouncing the verdict, the High Court made adverse comment on the shoddy investigation process. However, during these 9 and a half years, Dr. Rajesh and Dr. Nupur had to suffer miserably due to false allegation, innuendos and various other lies in the hands of media. their image and reputation have been irrevocably tarnished by the media.
Will the media answer? Will the media tender unconditional apology to Talwars for their continuous insinuation for more than 9 years?
