Bangalore: Slamming the CBI for its 'failure' to crack the Aarushi Talwar murder case, BJP on Thursday charged that the agency's entire capacity was now involved in political management of cases in which Central government is involved.

"I think CBI's failure in the latest case of Arushi is extremely unfortunate. This has completely destroyed the professionalism and capacity of CBI", senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley told reporters.

CBI has been used essentially to cover up instances that are against the government and to implicate the opposition leaders, the Opposition leader in the Rajya Sabha said a day after CBI decided to seek closure of the Arushi murder case.

"The capacity of CBI to resolve even normal cases has been completely demolished.The country expects them to come with some results on Ruchika and Arushi cases", Jaitley said.

Jaitley, here to attend the Karnataka Core Group meeting of the party, alleged that the CBI has "miserably" failed in both the cases of Ruchika's molestation which involved a senior police officer and the sensational Arushi murder case.

The government and the CBI must seriously introspect in these cases and culprits should be identified, he said.

Asked about BJP National General Secretary Anantkumar's alleged links with corporate lobbyist Niira Radia, Jaitley dismissed them as baseless and demanded that the Congress either should tender proof or withdraw the charges.

Anantkumar, who was also present, however refused to take questions.
