The distraught woman said that she wanted the Talwar couple to hang. “But I am satisfied with the life imprisonment. I congratulate the Indian judiciary for booking the killers of my dear husband, sentencing them to life imprisonment,” she said.

“I never thought justice would be delivered this way. Talwars were rich people and we believed they would buy (off) the courts. But it did not happen,” she added, sounding humble, but profoundly grateful.

For Khum Kala, the world collapsed around her after the murder of her husband, the family’s only breadwinner. He left behind an aged mother now 80-years-old, his wife and a 16-year-old ailing son.

According to the widow, who lives in a remote part of Nepal, her husband left for India in 2008 in search of work and was hired by the Talwars. The couple were well known dentists.

Hemraj would send money to his family in Nepal. After he was killed, the family’s financial woes deepened and she battles daily to keep the family alive.
