As the Uttar Pradesh Police drew flak over shoddy investigation into the case which was making national headlines, the then chief minister Mayawati handed over the probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). None of the two films, of course, could show a conclusion on screen.

Hence, the CBI Special Judge S. Lal ruled Aarushi's parents guilty of murder and conspiracy. Later, it was discovered by the CBI that the murder was done with precision, and a butcher or a doctor could have done it. The court held that on the basis of the circumstances and evidence on record, the couple can not be held guilty of the murder. The CBI special court rejected the "closure report" and ordered the prosecution of the Talwars based on existing evidence.

Talwars' counselTanveer Mir thanked the court for the acquittal. "In fact, they will have to answer a number of questions in the Supreme Court as to why they did not investigate properly". The murders of Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj gripped the imagination of the nation, indeed several other parts of the world. The film was directed by Meghna Gulzar.
