Aarushi murder case: Uncertainty over release of Talwars from Dasna jail



File Photo

New Delhi, Oct 13, 2017: It seems like there is uncertanity over whether the parents of Aarushi Talwar–Rajesh and Nupur Talwar would be released from Dasna jail in Ghaziabad on Friday as the certified copy of the Allahabad High Court order acquitting them had not reached the prison authorities till late Friday afternoon.

The High Court had on Thursday acquitted the Talwars in the murder of their teenage daughter Aarushi in 2008 by saying that the dentist couple could not be held guilty as per the circumstances and the evidence on record.

Prison officials said they had not received a copy of the High Court order and would initiate the release procedure after they get the copy. The copy of the verdict will first be sent to the special CBI court in Ghaziabad, which had convicted them in 2013 and whose order was set aside and overruled by the Allahabad High Court.

After this, the certified copy will reach Dasna prison and the procedure to release Nupur and Rajesh Talwar will begin.

Local lawyer Satyaketu Singh, who contested the case at the CBI court in Ghaziabad, said the release of the Talwars was not possible on Friday as to file for their release a certified copy of the judgment was needed.

Dhruv Gupta, a lawyer for the Talwars, said they were trying their best to get the couple out of the jail on Friday itself.

Authorities said if the relevant documents from the court and the subsequent paper work was not completed by Friday evening, the Talwars might have to stay put in prison till Monday.

Saturday and Sunday are holidays.

Earlier, the couple was held guilty by a CBI court for murdering their own daughter, in what seemed to be a case of honour killing. However, the court on Thursday set aside the earlier judgement and acquitted the couple.

After a Special CBI Court in Ghaziabad convicted them for the murders in 2013 and handed them life terms, the Talwars appealed in the Allahabad High Court against the verdict.

The Talwars were lodged in Dasna jail in Ghaziabad district ever since their 2013 conviction.

Five years after 14-year-old Aarushi Talwar and domestic help Hemraj were found murdered, Special CBI Judge S Lal convicted Aarushi’s parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar of murder and conspiracy.

Aarushi was found murdered in her bedroom, following which Hemraj was initially a suspect. However, his body too was found in a pool of blood a day later on the terrace of the house.

The UP Police accused Rajesh Talwar of killing his daughter in a fit of rage after he allegedly found Aarushi in a compromising situation with Hemraj. Rajesh Talwar was arrested on May 23, 2008.

PM Awas Yojana: Only 8 percent houses built in 3 years



New Delhi, March 22: The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) for urban areas which promised “housing for all” by 2022, has barely completed target of  8%, or 3 lakh of the 40.6 lakh houses in last three years.

However, the condition of the rural version of PMAY is better, as under this scheme 30%, or 28.8 lakh houses, have been completed against the 95.4 lakh targeted by the rural development ministry in 15 months since the plan was inaugurated, the Times of India reported.

According to data on the websites of the urban affairs and rural development ministries, on March 5 this year, the ministry had considered 8,341 projects under PMAY involving 40.6 lakh houses.

But only 3.4 lakh houses have been constructed so far. while work is underway on 18 lakh or about 44% of the target.

However, the data doesn’t show the stage of development for these houses.

Among those completed, about 3 lakh houses are occupied.

On June 25, 2015, the PMAY (Urban) was launched by Prime Minister Modi aiming to build two crore houses for the poor in urban areas by 2022.

Responding to TOI’s questions, the joint secretary and mission director, housing for all, in the urban housing ministry stated, “Keeping in view that housing projects take 18-24 months to complete (in case of projects under two categories), we can expect that in the financial year 2018-19, the pace of PMAY (U) will pick up quite significantly”.

While, PMAY (Rural) was inaugurated on November 20, 2016, and projected to build 1 crore new houses by March 31, 2019. Ou of which, 51 lakh houses were to be completed by end-March 2018. Thus, the 27.7 lakh actually completed are only about 54% of the target at present.
