The Allahabad High Court has acquitted the dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the sensational 2008 Aarushi murder case. After the CBI failed to prove the couple guilty, the court has cleared the couple of murder charges. The couple were sentenced to life imprisonment in 2013 for murdering their daughter Aarushi and the domestic help Hemraj.  Aarushi was found dead in her house in 2008 with her throat slit.

Aarushi murder case wasn’t just about the 14 year old. What made it one of the most controversial and mysterious case is the murder of Aarushi’s domestic help Hemraj. Who killed Hemraj?

The well-known journalist Barkha Dutt tweeted about the less discussed segment of this unique case.

While all media houses have picked up #TalwarVerdict, Twitter has been buzzing with reactions on how media has failed in covering Aarushi’s murder case.

Although the court verdict has put an end to an almost a decade long legal process, several people on Twitter asked the most pressing question of ‘who killed Aarushi?’ Some of them even expressed concern if the Aarushi murder case will ever be untangled?

The case has been under investigation for 9 years now. Well that’s almost a decade and not enough time for CBI and Indian police to clear the murder case of a 14 year old, some twitteratis felt. People also questioned the shoddy investigation of the case.

Maybe it is time for India’s forensic team to buckle up and speed up the criminal trials, says another user.
