New Delhi: With the mystery in the Aarushi-
Hemraj double murder case remaining unsolved, the CBI has
questioned the teenager`s uncle Dinesh Talwar and others,
including a doctor who was the first to see the decomposed
body of her domestic help.

Official sources said the special team of CBI, which is
re-investigating the two-year-old case, recently questioned
retired police officer K K Gautam, Dinesh Talwar and Sushil
Choudhary, owner of I Care hospital here.

"We wanted to know who discovered Hemraj`s body first
because as per the initial investigation reports, the body was
discovered the day the Talwar couple were in Haridwar for the
girl`s last rites.

"K K Gautam accompanied by Dr Sushil Choudhary, a family
friend of the Talwars, had reached his house to express
condolences. Dinesh was present at their place at that time.
Gautam had claimed that during his visit he detected blood
stains on the stairs leading to the terrace of the flat.
Following the trail of blood, he detected the dead body of the
missing domestic help," a source said.

"It is difficult to believe that the trail of blood was
not seen by anyone until Gautam noticed it," he said.

Yam Prasad Banjade alias Hemraj, the 45-yr-old Nepalese
national and the family`s domestic help, was initially
considered by the Noida police as the prime suspect in the
murder case until his badly decomposed body was discovered on
the terrace of the Talwar`s residence the day after Aarushi
was found dead.

Aarushi Talwar, the 14-year-old daughter of Dr Nupur and
Dr Rajesh Talwar, was found dead with her throat slit in her
parents` home at Jalvayu Vihar in Noida on May 15, 2008.

The CBI had called the parents of the deceased on May 19
to Dehradun for questioning in regard to their daughter`s
murder case.

The CBI had carried out narco-analysis test on Nupur and
Rajesh between February 8 and 20 this year at the Gandhinagar
forensic laboratory. However, it failed to get any concrete
clue which could help investigators in solving the murder case
of the teenager and the domestic help.
