The poor can not expect justice", said one.Another said, " Hemraj 's relatives should challenge the acquittal at the Supreme Court.

The Allahabad High Court on Thursday acquitted the parents of Aarushi Talwar, who was found murdered nine years back in Noida, setting aside the CBI court's earlier order, in connection with the double murder case, which shook the nation in 2008. Nupur and Rajesh Talwar are at present serving their sentence in Ghaziabad's Dasna jail. However, now it will remain a mystery.

The Talwars had filed appeals in the Allahabad High Court after a CBI trial court on 28 November 2013 sentenced them to life for the murders of their 14-year-old daughter Aarushi and 45-year-old domestic help Hemraj in May 2008.

"The circumstances are neither conclusive in nature nor they exclude every possible hypothesis except the one of the guilt of the appellant.the chain of circumstances, in this case, is not complete so as not to leave any reasonable ground for the conclusion consistent with the innocence of the appellant, " the bench said in its 273-page judgement delivered on Thursday. If order comes today before the jail closure, they'll be released, but possibility is less.

B G Chitnis, Nupur Talwar's father, said it was very trying for him to see his daughter, Nupur and her husband Rajesh behind bars. The infamous Aarushi Talwar murder case could not see the light of the day, today, as the deceased still could not get the justice from the higher court.

The release of Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar, parents of Aarushi Talwar, who was murdered in 2008 along with her domestic help Hemraj, may be delayed till Monday, say reports. During the initial investigation, the murder was ruled out to have been done by someone with full medical precision and suspected involvement of an insider.
