New Delhi: There were a few key observations that the Allahabad High Court made while acquitting Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case. The court held that the golden rule in justice is that if there is a situation where there are doubts, one has to favour the accused.
Aarushi was found dead in her bedroom at her Noida home near Delhi. Her parents were convicted for the murder in 2013. The parents then moved the High Court against the verdict of the CBI court.
The HC held that there is no clinching evidence that the parents did it. There is only circumstantial evidence. There is no irresistible conclusion that Rajesh and Nupur committed the murders, the HC also held.
The golden rule in justice is that if there is a situation where there are doubts, one has to favour the accused. The benefit of the doubt in this case goes to the Talwars and hence this court is acquitting them, the judge also ruled.
