New Delhi : The Supreme Court Friday dismissed the petition of Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, parents of the murdered teenager Aarushi Talwar, for quashing criminal proceedings against them. The couple will now be tried in the case.
The Talwars approached the Supreme Court to overrule the verdict of a lower court that ordered the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to make them the main accused in the case.
Fourteen-year-old Aarushi, a student of Delhi Public School, was found murdered in her parents’ Noida apartment May 16, 2008. The family’s domestic help, Hemraj, who was initially suspected to be the prime suspect, was also found killed on the apartment’s terrace a day later.
