The Central Bureau of Investigation on Saturday said that Rajkumar, who was arrested on Friday in connection with the Aarushi murder case, has confessed that he had broken and subsequently hidden the mobile phone of the victim.

"I have perused the case diary. The accused, in his statement under Section 161 of the CrPC, has confessed that after switching off Aarushi's mobile phone, he had broken and hidden the same, which he can recover. The accused also said that he can help in the recovery of Hemraj's mobile phone from a secret place besides the Khukri," the order said.

The CBI had on Friday arrested Rajkumar after the forensic examination of his 'washed' T-shirt revealed that it contains traces of human blood.
