Arushi’s parents to go to trail

arushiNew Delhi: The Supreme Court dismisses the petition filed by Aarushi’s parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar and has asked the couple to face trial. They had filed a plea against making them an accused in the murder of their daughter. The SC said it will not interfere in the magistrate’s order.

Aarushi was found murdered with her throat slit at the Talwar’s residence in Noida on the morning of May 16, 2008. The body of Hemraj, their domestic help, was found on the terrace the next day. Aarushi Talwar’s parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar – both dentists have been accused of murdering the 13-year-old and have also been accused of criminal conspiracy and destruction of evidence. The CBI had filed the closure report in the case on December 29, 2010. Though it gave a clean chit to three servants – Krishna, Raj Kumar and Vijay Mandal they have raised points that could be detrimental to the prime suspect of the case.

According to the closure report the crime scene was dressed up before the police was called something that is not associated with a regular criminal. The report also says that the private parts of Arushi had been cleaned up. It is not known whether the closure report speculates about the reason. It speaks of an attempt to fix the post-mortem report to ensure that there is no mention of rape. It says that Dr Dinesh Talwar, Rajeshs brother, made Dr Sunil Dohre of the Noida Hospital, who was conducting the autopsy, speak with a person he introduced as Dr T D Dogra, head of the department of forensic medicine at All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

The person told Dohre that no mention of rape was needed. CBI, however, found out from Dr Dogra, a renowned authority, that he never spoke with Dohre. Talwars did not tell the CBI about the golf club that was suspected to have been used to Aarushi and Hemraj because of the nature of injuries.The door of Aarushis room had the kind of lock that is in hotel rooms it could have been opened from inside or with a key from outside. Nupur Talwar had the key to her room. Though the CBI filed a closure report the Talwars got the case reopened.

They said the CBI disclosures were “false and baseless”. “By this closure report all I can say is that the CBI has condemned us for life. They have put all kinds of false allegations upon us without any evidence. This has been a completely shocking thing for us,” Nupur had said reacting to the report.
