Aarushi’s parents move HC against CBI court order

Allahabad: The parents of Aarushi Talwar on Monday moved the Allahabad High Court challenging a CBI court order passed earlier this month whereby they have been accused of the murder of their teenaged daughter and domestic help, Hemraj, three years ago. 
   The petition, filed by Aarushi’s parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, has challenged the CBI court order of February 9 that had accused the couple of having murdered their daughter and the domestic help besides engaging in criminal conspiracy and destruction of evidence.
 According to the Talwars’ counsel Gopal Chaturvedi, the petitioners have submitted that the CBI court had passed its order “without taking into consideration the objections submitted by us”.
   The case is likely to come up for hearing on Wednesday, said Samit Gopal, spokesperson for senior lawyer Gopal Chaturvedi, whom Talwars have appointed as their counsel in Allahabad.
   “We have filed a petition. Now it’s in the court’s hands,” Talwar’s lawyer Rebecca John said in Delhi. “I would not comment on the merits of the case as the case is subjudice,” John added.
   Special CBI judge, Ghaziabad, Preeti Singh had ordered on February 9 that the Talwars be charged with murder, destruction of evidence and criminal conspiracy.
   The judge had taken cognisance of the CBI closure report filed on December 29, 2010, naming Nupur and Rajesh Talwar as accused in the murder of their teenaged daughter Aarushi and servant Hemraj. While citing the complicity of Talwars in the murders, the CBI had given clean chit to their three servants — Raj Kumar, Krishna and Vijay Mandal.
