"We will defend our honour and that of our only child, Aarushi, vigorously in court and we will not rest till all our innocence is proved, our honour vindicated and the real killers are apprehended and brought to trial," the Talwars said in a statement after the Supreme Court rejected their petition seeking review of the earlier order that they be tried for the murder of Aarushi and their domestic help Hemraj
"We are deeply disappointed at the dismissal of our review petition by the Supreme court, but we accept it with humility. We believe justice will one day prevail," the couple said.
The Supreme Court has also turned down the plea for further investigation in the case.
