Friends of Aarushi walked from the Delhi Public School, Noida, the victim's school, up to her residence, to voice their anger towards the police investigation in the case. They marched holding placards with messages such as 'We will miss you', 'Justice shall prevail' and 'Stop character assassination'.
A friend of Aarushi said, "We are very angry with the police. It is almost over 10 days and there has been no development till date." She also pointed out, "Nobody close to Aarushi was actually questioned by them."
"During the investigation, the police have put forth allegations raising doubts regarding her character," another friend of Aarushi said.
"The fight is not over. We will not sit silently and tolerate what the police are doing. We will fight till the end," said Aarushi's best friend Fiza.
Another DPS student alleged, "The whole murder case has been sensationalised by the media and the police. I believe the police have not worked hard on the case. They are not right in whatever they say about her. The police should realise it is a murder case and should not take it lightly."
