NEW DELHI: Rajesh and Nupur Talwar have been awarded life sentence for killing their daughter Aarushi and servant Hemraj.
A special CBI court on Tuesday sentenced the dentist couple, a day after it convicted them of killing Aarushi and Hemraj.
Earlier, during the arguments for sentencing, the CBI sought death penalty for the Talwars, calling the case ‘rarest of rare’.
Arguing before additional session judge Shyam Lal on quantum of punishment for Talwars, CBI counsel RK Saini submitted that the killing was a cold-blooded murder and fell in the “rarest of rare” category, defence counsel Satyaketu Singh told reporters.
Saini pleaded for maximum punishment for the Talwar couple.
Defence counsel Tanvir Mir countered CBI’s argument and said the evidence against his clients were weak and sought leniency for Talwars, Singh said.
On Monday, five-and-a-half years after 14-year-old Aarushi and her family’s domestic help, Hemraj, were found dead in their Noida apartment, a special CBI court in Ghaziabad held Aarushi’s parents, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, guilty of the double murder that had gripped the nation as one of the most puzzling crimes ever.
Special CBI judge Shyam Lal convicted the couple of murder (section 302), destruction of evidence (201) and common intention to commit the crime (34).
In a case widely speculated as one of honour killing, 49-year-old Rajesh was also convicted separately for “furnishing false information to the police regarding the murder of his daughter by Hemraj” (section 203).
