Aarushi`s throat could have been slit using `Khukuri`: Forensic expert

Last Updated: Tuesday, July 9, 2013 - 00:04

Ghaziabad: Deposing before a CBI court in Aarushi Talwar`s murder case, a former forensic science expert on Monday said there is a possibility that the deep cuts on the teenager and the domestic help`s throats could have been inflicted with a `Khukuri` (Nepalese knife).
Dr RK Sharma, former HOD of forensic science at AIIMS, told the court of Additional Sessions Judge Shyam Lal, that Aarushi`s post mortem report mentioned `sliced carotid artery` and it is difficult to slit it using a scalpel, as the artery is deep inside the neck.

A Khukuri is a sharp-edged and winding knife, Sharma said, adding that one stroke using a Khukuri can slit throat.

Sharma is the fourth defence witness of Rajesh and Nupur Talwar and recording of his statement in the case will continue tomorrow.
