Aarushi’s parents were sentenced to life after a UP court convicted them for the gruesome killings of their daughter and their domestic help Hemraj in 2013.

A High Court bench including Justice BK Narayana and Justice AK Mishra reserved its verdict in September in the appeal filed by Aarushi’s parents.

“On November 26, 2013, the CBI announced life imprisonment to the Talwar couple. Today, the appeal filed by them will be heard and I believe they will get justice,” Sunil Maurya, writer of book ‘Ek thi Aarushi’ said.
