    A special CBI court Tuesday sentenced Rajesh and Nupur Talwar to life imprisonment for killing their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj over five years ago.

    Samir Singh, a former employer of Hemraj and present employer of Hemraj’s brother-in-law Jeevan in his house in Noida Sector 29, spoke to Jeevan over phone after the verdict.

    Jeevan, currently in Nepal, said the family was not happy with the court’s decision, Singh told IANS.

    “Jeevan told me that Hemraj’s wife wanted the couple to be hanged. Hemraj was the sole earner of the family. They also said justice was delayed,” said Singh.

    Singh also said Hemraj had no bad habit.

    “He worked in my house as a servant for six months but he left when he got the job at Talwars house. Jeevan has been working in my house for the past 13 years,” Singh said.

    Hemraj is survived by his mother, wife and son who is in his early 20s. They live in Nepal’s Arghakhanchi.
