A little-known London filmmaker has offered half a million pounds to the Indian dentist couple who was jailed this week for murdering their 14-year-old daughter Aarushi Talwar.
The appropriately named Clipp F Runyards, who claims to be a writer and film director, reportedly visited Rajesh and Nupur Talwar at the Dasna Jail near Delhi offering to adapt the story that has gripped India for the past five years.
The filmmaker was however unable to meet with the couple who had already met with their allotted quota of visitors for their first two weeks of detention.
Aarushi’s body was found at the family home in Noida on 08 May 2008. Her throat had been slit and she had suffered a fatal head wound.
Suspicion initially fell on the family’s domestic servant Hemraj Banjade whose body was then found on the roof of the house a day after Aarushi’s corpse was discovered.
It was speculated that Aarushi’s parents had murdered her after finding their daughter and Hemraj in a “compromising situation”.
The Talwars were sentenced to life in prison this week for the murders as well as for destroying evidence and misleading investigators.
Mr Runyards is expected to meet with the couple in two weeks’ time.
Meanwhile, the Talwars have taken up work inside prison with Rajesh working as a dentist serving inmates and prison officials whilst Nupur works as a teacher.
The couple are said to be earning Rs 40 (40p) a day each and are allowed to meet for 20 minutes every Saturday.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
