LUCKNOW: Conducting a rehearing on the appeal filed by Rajesh and Nupur Talwar challenging their life term by the CBI court, Ghaziabad, for the murder of their 14-year-old daughter Arushi Talwar and
domestic help Hemraj, the Allahabad High Court on Tuesday directed the Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) to file its reply over the contradictions in some of its probe reports.

The court set August 31 as the next date of hearing. It had reserved its verdict on January 9, 2017, in the criminal appeal filed by Rajesh and Nupur Talwar challenging their conviction and life imprisonment.
Arushi’s parents were convicted in November 2013.

Hearing the criminal appeal, a division bench comprising Justice Bala Krishna Narayan and Justice AK Mishra had reserved the order after hearing all parties at length.

While Rajesh was incarcerated then, Nupur was out on three-month parole on the direction of the High Court. However, both are presently in jail.

During a criminal appeal hearing filed by the duo on Tuesday, the court also sought clarification from CBI counsel Anurag Khanna over the internet router which was on through the night of the double murders.

Hemraj was the main suspect after Arushi's body was found on May 16, 2008, until his partially decomposed body was recovered the next day at the Talwar’s  home.
