In May 2008, a collective shudder runs through the Indian middle class after a 13-year-old girl named Aarushi Talwar is found brutally murdered in her bed. The very next morning, another body is discovered on the terrace — it belongs to Hemraj, the Talwars’ live-in help, and the prime suspect in Aarushi's murder. Accusing fingers are now pointed at the Talwars, Aarushi’s grief-stricken parents, whose comfortable middle class existence swiftly becomes anyone’s worst nightmare. Trial by Error, adapted from Avirook Sen’s haunting book Aarushi, is an eight-part investigative audio series that narrates the story of the Noida double murders, and the controversial trial that convicted the Talwars. Follow investigative journalist Nishita Jha as she unearths the murky details of the case to see whether justice truly has been served.
