"We are deeply relieved and grateful to God for the verdict. It's been an exhausting journey for us and it has been very trying time for our family. We have suffered a lot for almost ten years," she said to media.

The Allahabad High Court acquitted the Talwars on the basis that the evidence against them was only circumstantial.

In May 2008, Aarushi was found murdered with her throat slit in her bedroom. Initially, the domestic help Hemraj was believed to be the murderer as he had disappeared since the day of her death. However, later on, his dead body was found on the terrace of the Talwar residence, making the Aarushi murder case a double murder case.
