Court to decide fate of Aarushi case today

January 07, 2011 09:51 IST

A special court in Ghaziabad will on Friday deliver its verdict on the Central Bureau of Investigation's December 29 closure report on the Aarushi murder case.

The court had asked the CBI investigating officer on January 3 to bring the case diary for examination and had also dismissed an application by Aarushi's parents, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, for not closing the case.

The Talwars had strongly opposed CBI plea to close the case, saying they have been 'cursed for life', as the investigating agency while appealing for closure, told the court the accused can't be charge sheeted because of lack of evidence.

It maybe recalled that the CBI had named Rajesh Talwar as one of the accused.

Fourteen-year-old Aarushi and the Talwars' domestic help Hemraj were murdered on May 15, 2008, at their house in Noida, Ghaziabad.

The CBI had filed its closure report with regard to the case towards the end of last month to end the probe clearing the names of three servants -- Raj Kumar, Krishna and Vijay Mandal.
