New book on the ordeals of the Talwars:

The book released by the journalist once again brought back the mysterious case to the limelight. The journalist in his book, Aarushi, himself investigated the case and claimed that the Talwars might have been indicated wrongly as killers.

The journalist also highlighted a part of a diary which Rajesh Talwar had begun to write on the day when he along with his wife was convicted by the court in 2013.

Now, media report revealed excerpts of the book which mentioned the ordeals the Talwars have been facing in jail. The dentist, in his diary, wrote, "Met with the Law Mantri since Deputy Jailer had called me there. Felt like some sort of an animal in a zoo whom people want to see."

"Some people and Parminder Awana, the cricketer [of the IPL's Kings XI Punjab], came. They were made to meet me, really don't know why. How am I supposed to react?"

"Still can't understand how this happened to us. If only I would have gotten up... I could not even save my dear Aaru (Aarushi). Very difficult to live without her."
