    Former trial judge, Shyam Lal, in Aarushi-Hemraj muder case has taken the plea to the top court for the deletion of personal remarks which were made by Allahabad high court judge.

    The Allahabad High Court had chastised the trial court judge for telling a "different story" propelled by "vitriolic" reasoning convicting dentist couple Nupur and Rajesh Talwar in the murders of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj in May 2008.

    Additional sessions Judge Shyam Lal in Ghaziabad (UP) had sentenced the Talwars to life imprisonment on November 28, 2013, holding them guilty in the twin murder case.

    Allowing the appeals of the Talwars against the CBI court order, Justices BK Narayana and AK Mishra of the Allahabad High Court last year acquitted the couple, saying that neither the circumstances nor the evidence was enough to hold them guilty.

    In "absolute agreement" with Justice Narayana in giving the Talwars the benefit of doubt, Justice Mishra said, "The learned trial Judge has prejudged things in his own fashion, drawn conclusion by embarking on erroneous analogy conjecturing to the brim on apparent facts telling a different story propelled by vitriolic reasoning."
