Dehradun: In its efforts to identify the
killers of Noida`s teenaged school girl Aarushi, CBI has
questioned her grandparents, cousin and the priest who had
performed her last rites.

Aarushi, 14-year-old daughter of the dentist couple
Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, was found dead with her throat slit
in her parents` home at Jalvayu Vihar in Noida on May 16,
2008. Her domestic help Hemraj was also found murdered in the
house.

The CBI probe team led by Superintendent of Police
(Dehradun) Neelabh Kishore, which is investigating the case,
questioned the Chitnis couple, Nupur Talwar`s parents, Rajesh
Talwar`s elder brother Dr Dinesh Talwar, his wife and their
child, the priest who performed the last rites of Aarushi, and
many other family friends of the Talwar couples.

CBI has also made initial contacts with a forensic lab in
Canada that specialises in `touch DNA` technique, a method
that has helped solve blind crime cases.

The laboratory, according to officials, has the
expertise to extract DNA from samples which are highly
contaminated but have been touched by the criminal.
