Allahabad HC Points To Talwars Compounder As Main Suspect:- The double murder case in the sensational Aarushi-Hemraj case is yet taking another twist. In a recent development, Talwars’ compunder Krishna has been pointed as the main suspect by the Allahabad High Court.
The court, while castigating the CBI for having “tampered with the case property”, observed that the agency had replaced a report which conclusively accepted Krishna’s involvement in the heinous crime. The Allahabad High Court, while acquitting Aarushi parents - Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, dentists by profession, in the Talwar case on Thursday, said the circumstances of the case did not lead to the “irresistible conclusion” that Rajesh and Nupur had alone committed the murders.

A CBI court had convicted and sentenced to life the dentist couple for killing their 14-year old daughter and maid servant Hemraj (45) in May 2008. Challenging the November 28, 2013, trial court order, the couple had moved the Allahabad High Court.
Justices BK Narayana and AK Mishra, while reading out their 273-page verdict quoted a Supreme Court ruling that underlined “graver the crime, greater should be the standard of proof”.
“The circumstances of this case upon being collectively considered do not lead to the irresistible conclusion that the appellants alone are the perpetrators of crime in question and on the evidence adduced in this case certainly two views are possible; one pointing to the guilt of the appellants; and the other to their innocence and in view of the principles expounded by the Apex Court in the case of Kali Ram (supra), we propose to adopt the view which is favorable to the appellants,” the High Court said.
