New Delhi: Law Minister M Veerappa Moily on Friday had a meeting with CBI Director AP Singh to discuss the possibilities of making "further progress" in the Aarushi
Talwar murder case, two days after the agency filed a closure report in a Ghaziabad court.
"I had invited the CBI director for a thorough discussion on the Aarushi Talwar murder case. The question is whether it is a fit case for closure or can further progress be made," Moily told reporters here after the meeting.
The meeting comes a day after Moily said that he would have a look into the agency's decision to file a closure report in the high-profile case.
Refusing to elaborate on the various options available before the agency, Moily said he discussed the various legal parameters involved in the matter.
"Let us see how we go forward," he said. Moily defended the CBI investigation into the matter and said that nobody can question the way the agency probed it.
"They have done a thorough job with utmost sincerity," he said.
The CBI had on Wednesday 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.
It has 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.
