The family of the domestic help of Talwars, HemrajBanjade, is likely to file an appeal in the Supreme Court against the Allahabad HC order that acquitted the dentist couple last week.
The family is waiting for the CBI to file an appeal failing which they will approach the Supreme Court. While the CBI has 90 days to file an appeal against the HC acquittal, legal experts of the agency are yet to reach a consensus on the same.
Hemraj’s family has decided to give two months to the CBI after which they will file their appeal in the apex court.
“We will first wait for CBI to file the appeal before Supreme Court against Allahabad High Court order, if they fail to do so, then we have right to challenge this. It’s also about the image of India’s most prestigious investigative agency,” said Naresh Kumar Yadav, lawyer of Hemraj’s family.
Hemraj, a resident of Nepal, was brutally murdered in May 2008. His mutilated body was discovered on the terrace of the building where the Talwars lived in Noida.
The double murder of Aarushi and Hemraj has divided country’s opinion on who committed the crime. While the Allahabad HC acquitted the parents after almost 8 years, the CBI firmly believes that the parents are guilty.
