Ghaziabad: The CBI will quiz Noida
policemen who were involved in the probe into the Aarushi-
Hemraj double-murder case that had led to the arrest of the
teenager`s dentist father Rajesh Talwar, with an agency
official saying that it was wrong to give a clean chit to him.
Talwar, who had emerged as the main suspect in the
May 16, 2008 murder of his 15-year-old daughter and servant
and was arrested on May 23 by Noida police, was granted bail
after nearly 50 days as the CBI said it had not found any
evidence against him.
The agency accused domestic helps Krishna, Vijay
Mandal and Rajkumar of murdering the duo. However, officials
now say they have little evidence against the three.
Rajesh and Nupur Talwar have come under the scanner of
CBI against and were in Dehradun last month as part of the
agency`s probe into the case.
The CBI will now interrogate two Noida policemen
Bholu and Rahul who had taken blood samples from the site and
were involved in the investigation, a CBI official said on
condition of anonymity.
In 187-page investigation report, Noida Police had
considered Rajesh as a prime accused.
The CBI official said it was "a wrong decision" to
give a clean chit to Rajesh by the CBI team when the
investigation was still in progress.
Police had suspected that a golf club was used in the
murder which could not be recovered. Police also pointed out
that a golf club of a close relative of Talwar family was said
to be missing but after the case was transferred from Noida
Police to CBI, it did not investigate it further.
Sources that facts in Aarushi case were intentionally
prevaricated to give relief to Talwar.
The CBI appears to be planning to quiz other police
personnel from Ghaziabad, Noida and Meerut who were involved
in investigation and has contacted them.
The CBI had carried out narco-analysis test on Nupur
and Rajesh between February 8 to 20 this year at the
Gandhinagar forensic labrotary. However, it failed to
get any concrete clue, which could help investigators in
solving the murder case.
