Aarushi's death was an accident: CBI

A CBI sleuth told court that Aarushi's father killed the duo after finding them in a compromising position.

NEW DELHI: Aarushi's death was an accident and the horrific incident was an outcome of rage, CBI investigating officer AGL Kaul told a Ghaziabad court.

An IBN-Live report says Kaul told the court that Aarushi's father killed his daughter and servant Hemraj after finding them in a compromising position. But he added Rajesh Talwar did not intend to kill Aarushi and her death was an accident.

Kaul said Rajesh hit Hemraj with a golf club when he found them in a compromising position and Aarushi was killed when he attempted a second swing at Hemraj.

The CBI investigator also told the court they could not recover the blood-stained clothes of Aarushi's father and suspect Rajesh and a golf club which he allegedly used for killing her and their help Hemraj.

Kaul, during his cross-examination, hinted that Rajesh Talwar disposed off the blood-stained clothes and the golf club to destroying evidence against himself.

Earlier on April 16, Kaul had said that on the basis of the circumstancial evidence he was convinced that Talwar and his wife Nupur, both dentists, killed their daughter.

He said earlier that during investigation no outsider's entry was found possible inside the house and all the three helps had nothing to do with the murder of the teenaged girl.

Defence lawyer Manoj Shishodia, who cross-examined Kaul, said he presented a contradictory detail of the chain of events on the double murder when the CBI earlier filed a closure report in court.

He claimed the closure report said the clothes that Talwar was wearing were found to be carrying stains of Aarushi's blood but no stains of Hemraj's blood.

Aarushi, 14, was found murdered at her parents' Noida residence May 16, 2008. The body of Hemraj, Talwars' help, was found the next day on the terrace of the house.

The Talwars, who were arrested by the probe agency, are now out on bail.
