The Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case is perhaps the most intriguing murder case that caught the attention of a nation. From the initial ham-handedness of the Noida police to CBI changing its version twice, it was a case where people were waiting to hear the judgement with bated breathe - as it could have gone either way. Though the Talwars have been proven guilty by the lower court, they are likely to appeal against the order in a higher court. But the crucial question that comes up with the verdict is whether circumstantial evidence is enough to convict someone? Where does the burden of proof lie and has there been a change in the criminal justice system?

Join us for a special show of The Big Fight where legal luminaries, a retired judge, a former CBI director, a former cop and Aarushi Talwar's family members debate the implications of this judgement.
