CBI to court: Allow narco-tests on Aarushi’s parents

Monday, January 4, 2010

GHAZIABAD - The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Monday sought permission of a local court to conduct narco-tests on Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, parents of 14-year-old Aarushi Talwar who was found murdered in her Noida house on May 16, 2008.

CBI counsel Suresh Batra submitted an application before Judicial Magistrate (CBI) Priti Singh requesting that the CBI be allowed to conduct narco-tests on the Talwars.

He said: “The newly constituted team of CBI has found some fresh clues, therefore, their (Rajesh and Nupur Talwar’s) narco-tests are a must.”

However, Satish Tamta, counsel of Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, opposed the CBI plea and said: “The final report has been submitted in the case and the parents have been found innocent.”

“The parents are ill. The CBI under the pressure of media is trying to implicate the Talwars,” Tamta added.

The local court heard the arguments of both the sides and reserved its order till Monday evening.

Aarushi Talwar was found with her throat slit and several stab wounds to her face on May 16, 2008 in her parents’ house at Jalvayu Vihar in Noida, a suburb of Delhi. Her dentist father Rajesh Talwar was arrested and charged with the murder of Aarushi and their domestic servant Hemraj, who was found killed on May 17.

Later, the court found Rajesh Talwar innocent and a fresh probe was ordered in this wide-open double murder case.
