The CBI on Tuesday told a local court that Dr Rajesh Talwar was not cooperating in the probe into the murders of his daughter Aarushi and servant Hemraj.
Using this as one of its reasons, the agency asked for Talwar’s custody for longer, so that crucial evidence like the murder weapon and the mobile phones of the victims could be recovered. The court allowed the CBI to grill Talwar for two more days.
Talwar, accused of the twin murders by Noida police, misled interrogators during the initial round of questioning, CBI said.
Talwar was brought to the court of Special Judicial Magistrate Sapna Mishra under heavy security. Public prosecutor Suresh Batra sought an extension of remand on three grounds: shortage of time, his uncooperative attitude, and his evasive answers.
Noida police had made similar claims a few days ago. Talwar’s lawyers had then argued that this only reflected that he had nothing to reveal.
