Noida Double Murder: Rajesh killed Hemraj, hit Aarushi unintentionally, says CBI

Deposing in a Ghaziabad court where dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar are being tried for the 2008 murder of their teenaged daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, CBI investigating officer A G L Kaul on Tuesday claimed it was Rajesh who committed the murders though he did not intend to kill Aarushi.

Kaul told the court of Additional Sessions Judge Shyam Lal that Rajesh \"found Arushi and Hemraj in an objectionable position\" and attacked Hemraj with the golf club, the second blow of which hit Aarushi unintentionally and led to her death.

A day earlier, Kaul told the court that he wanted to file a chargesheet against Rajesh but his seniors in the CBI believed that there was insufficient evidence and asked him to file a closure report. A special CBI court, however, rejected the closure report in February 2011, and made Rajesh and Nupur the main accused in the murders that took place on the night of May 15 and 16, 2008.

Recalling the circumstantial evidence against the accused, Kaul said \"both the accused and both the victims were present in the house and driver Umesh had seen all four for the last time that night.\"

\"At 6 am on 16.05.2008, when maid Bharti came to the house, the outermost iron gate of the house was opened by Dr Nupur Talwar from inside. There was no forced entry. Nothing was found stolen from the house. Neither of the accused could give any details of the previous night\'s incident,\" Kaul told the court.

\"Post-mortem reports of both victims suggest the time of death between 12 and 1 am. Around midnight, Dr Rajesh Talwar heard some noise in his flat. He came out of his room to check and went to Hemraj\'s room where he couldn\'t find him. Of the two golf sticks kept in Hemraj\'s room, Dr Talwar picked up one. By then Dr Talwar had realised that the noise was coming from Aarushi\'s room. The door to Aarushi\'s room wasn\'t latched, but only shut. When he pushed open the door, he found Aarushi and Hemraj in an objectionable position,\" he said.\"Dr Talwar attacked Hemraj on the head with the golf stick. By the time he hit him the second time, Hemraj\'s head had shifted and the blow struck Aarushi on the forehead,\" Kaul told the court.
