Aarushi's parents, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, were sentenced to life after a court in Uttar Pradesh convicted them for the gruesome killings of their daughter and their domestic help Hemraj on the night of 15–16 May 2008.
Here is a timeline of events:
- Aarushi Talwar and Hemraj Banjade were killed on the night of 15–16 May 2008 at Aarushi's home.
- Aarushi's body was discovered on 16 May, 2008.
- Next day, partially decomposed body of Hemraj was discovered on the terrace.
- In January 2009, CBI announced that the agency was ready to file a charge sheet.
- In the same year, the CBI handed over the investigation to a new team, which recommended closing the case due to critical gaps in the evidence.
- In November 2013, the parents were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment. The Talwars have challenged the decision in the Allahabad High Court.
