Additional Sessions judge Shyam Lal, holding Aarushi's parents, Rajesh and Nupur, guilty of the murders, said that no outsider(s) would dare to take the body of Hemraj to the terrace in severely injured condition and thereafter search out a lock to be placed in the door of the terrace.

The judge, who retires on November 30, also said it is not possible that an outsider(s) after committing the murders will muster the courage to take out "scotch whisky", knowing that the Talwar couple is in the nearby room, and his top priority will be to run away from the crime scene immediately.

"No outsider(s) will bother to take the body of Hemraj to the terrace. Moreover, a single person cannot take the body to the terrace. The door of the terrace was never locked prior to the occurrence but it was found locked in the morning of May 16, 2008 and the accused did not give the key of the lock to the police despite being asked to give the same," the judge said in his order.

"It is not possible that after commission of the crime, an outsider(s) will dress-up the crime scene. The golf club number 5 was thrown in the loft after commission of the crime and the same was produced after many months by accused Rajesh Talwar," he said.

"The pattern of head and neck injuries of both deceased persons is almost similar in nature and can be caused by golf club and scalpel, respectively. The accused, Dr Rajesh Talwar, was a member of the Golf Club, Noida and golf clubs were used by him and scalpel is used by the dentist and both the accused are dentist by profession," the order states.

The judge said the manner in which the murders were committed is not the handiwork of a single accused and rather the murders were committed and evidence destroyed by both the accused in furtherance of their common intention which is apparent from the facts and circumstances.
