CBI has evidence against Talwars?

New Delhi, February 10 (Agencies): More sensational details emerged in the Aarushi double murder case. Reports claimed Thursday that CBI’s case diary has listed a number of witnesses, whose testimonies point to a clear attempt by Dr Rajesh Talwar to “dress up” the scene of the crime. As per the case diary, which was submitted to the court, the CBI had come to the conclusion that Dr Talwar was the only suspect based on a painter’s testimony that he was hired by Dr Talwar days after the double murder on May 16, 2008, purportedly to destroy evidence.
The painter, Shoharat, was asked to paint the common wall separating Dr Rajesh Talwar’s room with Aarushi’s room. The painter has revealed before the probe agency that he was given a remuneration of Rs 25,000 to re-paint the wooden wall, ceilings and other adjoining areas. The CBI also depended on the statement of Talwar’s neighbor Punit Tandon, who has claimed that Dr Talwar had exclusive access to the terrace where Hemraj’s body was found. He has also told the investigating agency that prior to May 15, 2008 the door to the terrace was always kept open – the Talwars had claimed that they used to keep that door open at all times.
The CBI had mentioned in its closure report filed that it had circumstantial evidence on the basis of which it suspects the Talwar couple’s hand in Aarushi and Hemraj’s murder. After taking cognizance of the CBI’s closure report, the court had ordered the central probe agency to book Dr Rajesh and Nupur Talwar for the sensational murders. In view of today’s revelations, the court seems to have based its judgement on the testimonies and circumstantial evidence that have been mentioned in the case diary.
The doctor couple would be tried under multiple Sections of the Indian Penal Code: 302 (murder), 120(B) (criminal conspiracy), 201 (destruction of evidence) and 34 (criminal act done by several persons in furtherance of common intention of all). 14-year-old Aarushi was found murdered with her throat slit in her parents’ home at Jalvayu Vihar in Noida on May 16, 2008. The family’s domestic help Hemraj was found killed on the terrace of the flat the following day.
