New Delhi, August 10: The Supreme Court on Friday admitted the appeal filed by Central Bureau of Investigation against the acquittal of Nupur and Rajesh Talwar in Aarushi murder case. According to a Times of India report, CBI had filed an appeal challenging the Allahabad High Court's order of acquitting Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the murder of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj in 2008.
The Court had acquitted them and said that they cannot be held guilty on the basis of the evidence on record. Before that, the CBI had also filed a closure report in the CBI Court saying that there is lack of evidence to prove that Nupur and Rajesh Talwar are guilty of the murder case.

A CBI court at Ghaziabad had sentenced the Talwars to life imprisonment on November 26, 2013, in connection with the case. Before the high court's order came, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar were serving their life sentences in Ghaziabad's Dasna jail.
Fourteen-year-old Aarushi was found dead inside her room in the Talwars' Noida residence with her throat slit in May 2008. The needle of suspicion had 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.
