Talwars to approach higher court: Lawyer

New Delhi: The verdict of a special CBI court which Wednesday ordered that Rajesh and Nupur Talwar be tried for the murder of their teenaged daughter Aarushi will be challenged in a higher court, their lawyer said.



Rebecca John, the family`s lawyer, said the family was shocked after the verdict.
"We will challenge the order and go to a higher court. We were surprised by the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) closure report as it is full of gaping holes," she said.



"We are definitely taken aback by the order. Nothing can justify the summoning of Rajesh Talwar (for the next hering Feb 28) but having done it, we will go to a higher court challenging the order," she added.
The special CBI court Wednesday ordered that Rajesh and Nupur Talwar be tried for Aarushi`s murder. The couple will also be prosecuted for destruction of evidence.



Raising a question on the investigative agency, John said: "This was the present team which is saying it. The CBI about a year-and-a-half back said a completely different thing. They hid the investigation done by the previous team of the CBI."
