A special CBI court today formally framed charges against dentist couple Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar for the murders of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj in 2008. The court will next hear the case June 4.
The special Central Bureau of Investigation Judge S Lal had Thursday ruled that Nupur Talwar and Rajesh Talwar were charged with the crime under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 302/34 (murder with common intention) and 201/34 (destruction of evidence with common intention).

Rajesh Talwar was also charged under IPC sections 203/34 (misleading police about the crime with common intention).
The Talwars plan to challenge the decision in a higher court, their lawyer said.
Aarushi (14), was found murdered at her parents’ Noida residence on May 16, 2008. The body of Hemraj was found the next day on the terrace of the house.
