New Delhi: Lamenting that the CBI failed to "properly investigate" Arushi Talwar murder case, Law Minister M Veerapa Moily on Thursday said he would take a
"serious" look into "how such a lapse" took place.

"Such a brutal murder case cannot be properly investigated and the accused not traced. I will definitely, seriously look into it," Moily told a news agency here.

He said while he was not referring to any proposed changes in existing laws but as a Law Minister he would look at "how such a lapse" took place.

CBI had yesterday filed a closure report in the Aarushi murder case before a court on the grounds there was no available evidence at the crime scene to pursue the probe, meeting a dead-end in the case that shook the country over two years back.

After a detailed two-and-a-half year probe marked by botched up investigations, CBI said it found it impossible to reach any plausible conclusion because of lack of concrete
forensic evidence at the crime scene to nail the culprits and decided to close the case.
