Rajesh and Nupur Talwar from Noida are accused of murdering their only child, 14-year-old Aarushi, and their 45-year-old domestic worker Hemraj by slitting their throats "with clinical precision".

CBI says Aarushi was killed in a fit of rage when her parents found her with the servant in a "objectionable" situation while the couple insist they are victims of a botched police probe and vigilante justice.
