While a majority is pleased with the court’s verdict to acquit theTalwars in their child’s murder case , filmmaker Manish Gupta who made a film Rahasya inspired by the case, feels there are many unanswered questions.
Says Gupta, “In my view, till the Supreme Court passes a judgement, the case will remain open to debate. There still is ambiguity surrounding the case. It has not been proven as to who the actual murderer or murderers are. The servants have not been proven guilty. The defence has been putting forward the narco analysis test of Krishna, the compounder, but a narco analysis test is not considered conclusive or irrefutable evidence in court. Also, there have been 2 murders not one. There are so many people involved. The exact truth and exact sequence of events is not yet clear.”
Manish is clearly unconvinced about the Talwars’ innocence. “There have been two murders, not one. There are so many people involved. The exact truth and exact sequence of events is not yet clear.Who killed whom? And in what sequence? Did one person kill both Arushi and Hemraj?This is avery difficult case to crack. Kissne kya kiya? Kuch pataa nahin.”
In fact Manish Gupta’s film had been legally stopped by the Talwars from release in 2015. Manish and his producers Viacom 18 Motion Pictures had to go through a long and arduous legal process and add a disclaimer that his film Rahasya was not about the Talwar murder case.
