Ghaziabad: Concluding its final arguments in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder, the Central Bureau of Investigation on Thursday told a special court here that Aarushi’s parents are guilty of double murder.
On October 15, the CBI had told the court that dentists Rajesh and Nupur Talwar dressed up the crime scene and tried to influence a doctor who conducted the autopsy of the teenager.
CBI’s lawyer RK Saini had accused the Talwars for their daughter’s killing in 2008 and said the two used their home computer’s Internet all through the night of the murder, indicating that they were not asleep as claimed by them.
Aarushi, 14, was found murdered at her parents’ Noida residence on May 16, 2008. The body of their domestic help Hemraj was found the next day on the terrace of the house.
The CBI claimed that the suspicion was on the Talwars as they disturbed the crime scene and destroyed evidence on Aarushi’s body.
Blood stains on the railing of staircases, lock and on the steps were found partially mopped, the CBI had said, adding that this indicated the involvement of the dentist couple in the double murder.
The Talwars also tried to influence the doctor who performed the post-mortem on Aarushi, the CBI had said.
The CBI lawyer had said finger prints collected from the Talwars’ house from a whisky bottle also suggested the involvement of the parents of the teenager in the murder.
