“Welcome back to sanity and dignity... Nupur and Rajesh Talwar” posted Rachna Bhatt from Modinagar. Various pages and communities on Aarushi Talwar were satisfied with Thursday’s verdict.
Aarushi, a class 9 student at a well-known Noida school, was found murdered at her Lblock flat in Jal Vayu Vihar, Noida on May 15, 2008 — a couple of days before her birthday.
“Truth can not be long hidden.. #AarushiVerdict ! Heartiest Congratulations to you and your family... Finally all your efforts and hardwork paid off... Happiest news ever !!! Thank You God,” tweeted Sakshi Jain, another supporter.
According to Google trends, ‘Aarushi Talwar’ was the most searched word in the day with more than 20,000 people looking after it. Even, on Twitter, the key word ‘Aarushi’ was among the top three trends.
Aarushi co-authored a blog too. One of the entries, which has a picture of her with her friends said, “We regret day and night. But overcoming those regrets is not that easy.”
