The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) followed the Noida Police theory on Wednesday in a Ghaziabad court in the sensational Aarushi Talwar and Hemraj twin murder case.
The CBI prosecutor R K Saini told the trial court that Rajesh and Nupur Talwar killed their daughter Aarushi and the domestic help Hemraj in a fit of rage, after finding them in a compromising position. Talwars, however, strongly refuted the CBI claim.
The Talwars told the court that sex is no big deal in elite society and does not entail murders. Nupur Talwar personally dismissed the charge, saying that they belong to elite class of society where one does not kill anyone for indulging in such sexual acts. She said that they dearly loved their daughter and there was no question of killing her even after finding her in a compromising position, as the matter could have been resolved.
Resuming the argument on framing of charges in the May 2008 twin murder case, the CBI counsel told the special judge Shyam Lal that on the fateful day Talwars had returned home late and not finding Aarushi and Hemraj in the living room went to their daughter's room. Saini said that her room was locked from inside but Talwars opened it from outside with another key and found their daughter and Hemraj in a compromising position and got infuriated.
He added that an angry Talwar picked up a golf stick and repeatedly hit Hemraj and his daughter with it. As the two fell unconscious, Talwars slit their throats with a surgical blade, a work done with the precision expected of experts like them, he said.
The defence counsel told the court that the investigation agency had failed to establish the motive behind the murder. He said that the submission of a closure report in December 2010 suggested that the CBI had no evidence against the Talwars. Seeking the discharge of Aarushi's parents, the defence counsel said that neither the direct nor the circumstantial evidence supported the CBI argument to frame the charges.
