New Delhi: Ahead of the verdict into
the sensational Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case on Monday, the Uttar
Pradesh police put in place the heavy security around the court premises.

In
the Ghaziabad court, Special judge Shyam Lal is likely to pronounce
judgment around 02:00 a.m., nearly five-and-a-half years after Aarushi
Talwar (14) and domestic worker Hemraj Banjhare were found murdered at the
flat of her parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in Noida May 15, 2008.

The
Talwar-couple is charged with murder and destruction of evidence with
common intention. Rajesh Talwar has additionally been charged under
Section 203 of the Indian Penal Code for lodging a false initial FIR in
the case with Noida police.

A large number of media also gathered
to cover the case.

The case was initially investigated by Uttar
Pradesh Police, however, a fortnight after the murders, the case was
handed over to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) May 31, 2008.

The
charges against the couple were framed May 25, 2012, and the trial began
after that.

The CBI case is based purely on circumstantial
evidence because of the lack of direct evidence against the two accused.

During
the trial, the agency maintained that murders were committed by the two
accused as no outsider seemed to be involved. Of the four persons present
at the L-32 house, two were found murdered, the agency said.

CBI
lawyer R.K. Saini maintained that there was no proof of any outsider's
entry, the scene of crime had been heavily dressed up, Aarushi's body had
been tampered and Hemraj's body was concealed on the terrace of the flat.
