As soon as the Al­la­habad High Court ac­quit­ted Dr Ra­jesh and Nupur Tal­war on Thurs­day, so­cial me­dia went berserk over the de­ci­sion. Af­ter the Tal­war cou­ple were set free by the HC over the mur­der of 13-year-old Aarushi, var­i­ous groups on so­cial net­work­ing web­sites ap­plauded the court’s ver­dict.

‘Jus­tice for Aarushi Tal­war’ — a closed group on Face­book — was flooded with happy posts by peo­ple con­grat­u­lat­ing the fam­ily for win­ning the nine-year old bat­tle.

“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.”
