Supreme Court to hear Talwar review plea in Aarushi-Hemraj murder case

New Delhi, Mon, 26 Mar 2012 ANI

New Delhi, Mar.26 (ANI): The Supreme Court will on Monday hear a review petition filed by Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in connection with the 2008 murders of their teen daughter Aarushi and servant Hemraj.

In the normal practice, the bench hears a review plea in the chamber, but the two-judge apex court bench comprising Mr. Justices A.K. Patnaik and J.S. Khehar has accepted the couple's plea for an open court hearing.

"The language of Order XL Rule 3 of Part VIII of the Supreme Court Rules, 1966 makes it clear that an application for review shall be disposed of by circulation without any oral arguments unless otherwise ordered by the court.

"The court is of the opinion that it should hear the oral arguments before passing any order on the application for review. Hence, the Registry is directed to list this matter before the court for hearing," the bench said.

Rajesh and Nupur Talwar had filed a plea seeking review of its January 6 order in which the apex court had cleared the decks for the couple's trial in the murder case by dismissing their plea to quash criminal proceedings against them.

Fourteen-year-old Aarushi, the only daughter of the Talwars, was found dead at the family's Noida residence on the intervening night of May 15-16, 2008. The body of their servant Hemraj was found next day on the terrace. (ANI)

It's been 4 years now. The whole process was so botched up. Who can know the truth except the dead? And the dead don't speak! Even if the Supreme Court takes a decision, I bet the general public will be divided on the issue.

What we need is irrefutable proof, not some half-baked theories. Why not do the DNA touch test as the Talwars are demanding? The touch test has freed several 'culprits' in the past, and even if it does not find the real murderer, it can help establish if the Talwars were involved. If they were not, they should be allowed to move forward with their life.
