Ghaziabad, November 26: Nupur and Rajesh Talwar were on Tuesday sentenced to life imprisonment by a special CBI court that a day ago held them guilty of killing their teenaged daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.
Earlier in the day, the prosecution sought maximum punishment of death penalty arguing that it was a cold blooded murder and hence, fell under the category of rarest of rare cases. The defence counsel sought leniency.
The court turned down the prosecution’s argument for capital punishment and instead sentenced the dentist couple to life. The sentence order was read in the presence of both the convicts. They were taken back to Dasna Jail.
