In a new twist in the sensational Aarushi murder case, the Central Bureau of Investigation has said that dentist couple Rajesh Talwar and Nupur tried to influence the doctor who conducted the post mortem on their 14-year-old daughter in 2008.
In its 30-page closure report submitted to the Ghaziabad court, CBI has raised doubts over the role of Rajesh and Nupur in the case. It said Rajesh's name figures as an accused in the FIR but he was not chargesheeted because of insufficient evidence. It said the parents tried to influence the doctor who conducted the post mortem.
14-year-old Aarushi was murdered in the intervening night of May 15-16 in 2008 at the Talwar's residence in Noida near Delhi. The body of their domestic help Hemraj was found on the terrace the next day. After a detailed two-and-a-half year probe marked by botched up investigations, the CBI said it found it impossible to reach any plausible conclusion because of lack of concrete forensic evidence at the crime scene to nail the culprits and decided to close the case.
