As the Noida cops took Dr. Rajesh Talwar- the father of slain teenage Aarushi Talwar- into custody for three days, the family demanded an impartial CBI inquiry and the intervention of state government in this case. The next hearing will take place when the strike ends and the remand period is completed.
On Tuesday, due to lawyers’ strike in support of on-going Gujjar agitation, Talwar has to defend himself in the court against the accusation of murdering his daughter and domestic help Hemraj. Though police demanded for a seven-day judicial custody for further investigation, but in the absence of tangible material the court only granted a three-day remand.
While Talwar claimed that he had no role in the murder of Aarushi but police stressed on Talwar’s earlier confession, which the doctor denied. ‘There is no confession to the police and police is making its own theory and drawing its own conclusion,’ the doctor reportedly told the court.
Talwar’s lawyer Pinaki Mishra stressed that there has been several lapses in police investigation and also cited fear for Dr. Rajesh Talwar’s critical health condition, who is an asthma patient.
Arushi, 14, was found dead in her bedroom on May 16; Hemraj, the prime suspect for the police, was found dead the next day on the terrace of the house. Later what police revealed after a five-day long investigation was astonishing for all, which claimed that Rajesh Talwar murdered both, as Arushi had come to know of his extramarital affair with fellow dentist Anita Durani.
Aarushi’s mother too in a television interview has categorically denied all allegations and expressed her belief in judiciary system.
Meanwhile, taking strong objection to police action, the friends and schoolmates of Aarushi took out a candle march on Tuesday morning from Delhi Public School Noida to her residence and accused both police and media for defaming the image of a deceased person, who is not alive to defend her.
