Ghaziabad: Dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar were Monday held guilty of the murder of their teenaged daughter and domestic help in May 2008. The couple insisted that they were innocent.
A special CBI court held both of them guilty of the sensational double murder in Noida, at the edge of New Delhi. A lawyer said the couple were in tears when the verdict was read out.
The Talwars were convicted under sections 34, 302 and 201 of the Indian Penal Code. Rajesh Talwar was also convicted under section 203.
The Talwars said in a statement that they were “deeply disappointed”.
“We are deeply disappointed, hurt and anguished for being convicted for a crime that has not been committed. We refuse to feel defeated and will continue to fight for justice,” they said.
