Aarushi Talwar verdict: Talvar maker Vishal Bhardwaj says 'he's deeply relieved'

The high court verdict today ends a nine-year ordeal of the parents who were found guilty of murdering 14-year-old Aarushi by a CBI court.

A high court bench, comprising Justice B.K. Narayana and Justice A.K. Mishra, had reserved its verdict, in September, in the appeal filed by Aarushi's parents, who were sentenced to life in jail.

Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj, writer and co-producer of "Talvar" - a film on the 2008 Aarushi Talwar murder case - said he was relieved and overwhelmed that the teenaged girl's parents were acquitted in the case on Thursday.

On May 23, 2008, Rajesh Talwar was arrested and was kept in Dasna jail; on July 11, 2008, he was let off. Nupur surrendered in Ghaziabad court on April 30, 2012.

Jail sources said the couple were likely to walk free tomorrow.

The needle of suspicion initially moved towards 45-year- old Hemraj, who had gone missing, but his body was recovered from the terrace of the house two days later.

"The couple was very happy.they said that justice had been done to them finally, " said an official of the Dasna jail in Ghaziabad, where the couple were now lodged.

The movie was a retelling of investigation theories behind the Aarushi Talwar-Hemraj murder case. "We have suffered a lot for nearly ten years", she said while addressing the media.

Although the court verdict has put an end to an nearly 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?

# I was in pain to see my daughter and son-in-law for the crime that they have not committed: Nupur Talwar's father. "Until there is conclusive evidence, which was not found in this case, the conviction can not be upheld". The agency has said it will take a call on appealing the high court's decision after it goes through the judgement. Interestingly, they were given life sentence by a CBI court because of lack of evidence.

The trial court had stated 26 points of evidence on the basis of which it found the couple guilty.

The case was handed over to the CBI after the Noida police was criticised for a botched investigation with loss of crucial forensic evidence.
