"I should not have been born in this country. It is nothing but a banana republic." This was how a shattered Rajesh Talwar, father of Aarushi, reacted on Wednesday shortly after the CBI special court ordered that he and his wife Nupur be tried for the murder of the teenager in May 2008.

Rajesh said there is "no law in India" and that it is "nothing but a banana republic."

"The system is just nothing. I am sorry to say. I should not have been born in this country. I want the country, media to wake up. It is not fair..." he told a TV channel.

Rajesh said he has tried everything to prove his innocence for the past two-and-a-half years.
