The Allahabad High Court today set aside CBI court's order and acquitted Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the murder of their daughter Aarushi Talwar in 2008.
The court said the Talwars should be given the benefit of the doubt.
While it is a time to celebrate for the Talwars, social media is flooded with questions.
Most ask 'Who Killed Aarushi?':
Who Killed Aarushi? Who Killed the poor man in 2002 hit & run case? Lower courts convict mindlessly? Or only rich get justice from HC?— Shehzad Poonawalla (@Shehzad_Ind) October 12, 2017
2 minutes of investigation had made it clear that it was Rajesh Talwar who did it, But money and power conclude that "No one Killed Aarushi"— Bhaiyyaji (@bhaiyyajispeaks) October 12, 2017
Finally , Salman's driver was the murderer of Arushi #AarushiVerdict— Pravin (@Farjigiri) October 12, 2017
Three people were in a room. No one went in or out. 1 murdered two alive. But the two didn't kill one. Then who killed 1? #AarushiVerdict— Akhilesh Shukla (@MrAShukla) October 12, 2017
Some blame it on the investigation:
Don’t know who killed #Arushi & will probably never know but what I do know is the police made a total dogs breakfast of the investigation.— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) October 12, 2017
Talwars acquitted! Now police need to be indicted for their shoddy probe & then making the Talwars scapegoats. #AarushiVerdict— Reshmi Dasgupta (@ReshmiDG) October 12, 2017
Some are plain happy about the acquittal:
9 years of sheer struggle for the unfortunate parents who couldn't even mourn to the death of their only child. #AarushiVerdict— Dew Drop (@DewDrop_shell) October 12, 2017
How do you compensate a couple who have had public scrutiny & humiliation added to police harassment after personal tragedy? #AarushiVerdict— Madhavan Narayanan (@madversity) October 12, 2017
