Ghaziabad: As the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case continues to linger on, a key witness in the case has died.

Jagbir Singh Malik, the first investigating officer (IO) in the case, was mowed down by a vehicle in Ghaziabad recently. He was among the three cops who were run over by a mini-van during the recent riots in Masuri in Ghaziabad.

Malik was a key witness as he had seized the computer of Aarushi, a week after her murder at her Sector 25 residence.
The computer was seized to establish the role of Rajesh Talwar in the murder.
