An Indian court has found a prominent doctor couple guilty of murdering their teenaged daughter Aarushi Talwar and their domestic help Hemraj.

The quantum of sentence will be announced on Tuesday.

The court in Ghaziabad, adjoining India's capital New Delhi, declared Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar guilty of the twin murders that sent shock waves across the country when it occurred on May 16, 2008.

The court found the couple guilty under section 302 of the Indian Penal code relating to murder, according to a lawyer who was present at the hearing and briefed the media soon after the judgement.
