Aarushi Murder Case

Aarushi Murder Case


Aarushi - Hemraj double murder case is a very mysterious case of our time. A 14 year old girl named Aarushi Talwar who lived with her parents Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar in Noida found murdered in her house on 16th May 2008, first it was believed that she was murdered by their domestic help Hemraj Banjade because he was missing, next day the case took a new turn when Hemraj's dead body was found at the terrace of Talwar's residence this made Aarushi's parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar as main suspects. The case saw many up and down in its investigations during its transfer from UP police to CBI and finally after five and a half year Rajesh and Nupur Talwar the parents of Aarushi Talwar were convicted to life imprisonment by special CBI court on 25th November 2013 on circumstantial evidence.

There were only four people present in Talwar's house at the night of 15-16th May 2008 two of which were killed since no evidence of any outsiders' entry was available hypothesis of crime clearly proves that other two present in the house were responsible for killing of both the victims and then further destroying the evidence. In spite of this clear theory police and CBI are still clueless of what happened that night. The accused even after conviction states that they are not guilty and haven't killed any body. The case received heavy media coverage which also leads to the media trial of the case,many theories regarding the case were spread, Aarushi's character assassination also happened which was criticized by many women groups.

The case was twisted and became mysterious due to the improper investigation by UP police.There failure in securing crime scene and not following leads immediately resulted in loss of important evidences. It was very clear from the beginning that Talwar couple was behind the crime but inefficiency by police investigation team helped them in manipulating the course of event and in destroying the evidence. The case reached CBI but the tale remain the same and the case was almost closed without the lack of evidence and motive. Later court ordered that there are enough evidence against Talwars to be tried in the court. There were also reports that Talwars used their connections to distort the case. One can easily conclude by courts judgement and substantial evidence available that Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar killed their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj after seeing them in indecent position in fit of rage.

The importance of this case lies in the fact that it highlights the widening ridge between working parents and their children if there was a closeness between Hemraj and Aarushi than parents must be aware of it and should have taken some measures about it timely. In upper middle class where both the parents are working children often become close to domestic helps as they spend most of the time with them. We are unaware of what happened that night but there is a possibility that their closeness get interpreted in a wrong way because no other domestic helps,security guard ,etc never ever noticed any unnatural behavior between Aarushi and Hemraj. If we consider indecent activity theory true then honor killing by educated reputed class is again a dangerous sign in social scenario. Such behavior is unacceptable from educated lot in the society. Anyways the justice is delivered according to the law in time as compare to many other cases of our times. 

I also hope that Talwars must confess their crime and tell true story of that night to the world as possibility of them not being guilty is less than one percent.

  2. I for one is happy that this case is over and out. I have been hearing about this case for ever, coming up every couple of years for a couple of weeks of media and frenzy and then being lost for the next rise.

  5. Arushi Murder Mystery:A Logical Opinion:
    A wound on an odd part of the body can neither be seen nor be shown. The Talwars most probably the father seeing Arushi in odd or struggling condition with the Help tried to curb and book the Help with some tool. As bad luck would have it, the defence waged against the Help to help the daughter harmed her consequently. However it was a double loss on the part of the Talwars due to the Help's misconduct and he (the domestic help) had to be disposed off!
    ALAS TO THE TALWARS, FOR, ODD WOUND CAN BE SEEN NOT SHOWN NOT.

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway.

These substances however are not harmful a…

I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound.

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
