Krishna’s niece and his lawyer on Friday reiterated their stand and claimed that Krishna was being “falsely implicated” in the case. They were speaking at a press conference.
Krishna’s lawyer F.C. Sharma said, “He is innocent. We do not know on what ground he was arrested. We will file a bail application after getting grounds of his arrest from the CBI and copy of charges against him. Our stand that Krishna was under illegal detention since June 3 has been vindicated.”
Meanwhile, Krishna’s family has approached the National Human Rights Commission for intervention. Krishna's sister Parvati along with some relatives met NHRC officials and submitted a petition alleging violation of human rights.
At the press conference, Krishna’s niece Sunita, when asked by media how she can say that Krishna was in the house whole night on May 15, said, “We have just one room and four persons including my father, brother, Krishna and me sleep in the same room. Had he gone out, we would have noticed.”
When asked whether to save Dr. Talwar the CBI was implicating Krishna, Sunita said, “I do not know who it was. I only know that he is innocent.”
Regarding Dr Talwar rebuking Krishna, she said Krishna might have done something wrong because of which he was scolded. But she maintained that it was a few days before the day of killings.
On asking what the CBI asked them when they visited their house, Sunita said, “They said since we are Nepali, we must have a Khurki. We replied in affirmative and showed them the khurki. They believed that this was not used in the murder.”
When contacted, Dr Talwar’s brother Dinesh said, “I am happy that the CBI is working hard to find out the truth. Rajesh’s innocence will be proved and the real culprit will be brought to the justice.”
