On May 24, 2008, Nupur Talwar made the grave error of not expressing grief in front of the cameras, and millions of prime-time news viewers.
The day after Rajesh Talwar was arrested for allegedly murdering his daughter and household help, Nupur Talwar was interviewed by NDTV. To the Talwars, this seemed to be an opportunity to share their loss with the world. The media, however, was keen to dissect every word and reaction by Nupur. The most bizarre conclusion that they drew was that since Nupur didn’t shed tears on national television while talking about her murdered daughter, she certainly had a hand in her death.
The Talwars assumed that the worst had already happened to them. But after this interview, public opinion against them, they truly hit rock bottom.
