The sensational and high-profile double murder case has been a subject of heated debate that who killed Aarushi and Hemraj, from last ten years.

Rajesh and his wife Nupur were convicted in November 2013 in the double murder case of their 14-year-old daughter Aarushi and their house help Hemraj. Hence, they filed the present criminal appeal challenging the life term awarded to them by the CBI court.

The trial took place at CBI Court, Ghaziabad and in November 2013, both the parents of Aarushi were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment. They challenged the said decision in the Allahabad high court by filing the present appeal.

Aarushi and Hemraj were murdered on the intervening night of May 15-16 in 2008. However, when Aarushi's body was discovered on May 16, the missing servant Hemraj was considered as the main suspect. But on the next day, Hemraj's partially decomposed body was discovered on the terrace. Later, police considered Aarushi's parents as the prime suspects.
