Dr Rajesh Talwar’s medical assistant Krishna was present at the time the dentist’s daughter and the domestic help were killed, said a top-level source on Thursday. But did he help in the murders? No answers yet.
<b1>Krishna’s role in the case has been a subject of much speculation as the CBI, which is probing the murders, has not yet explained his role – whether he is a witness, murderer or just an accomplice.
But Krishna’s presence in the house at the time Aarushi and Hemraj were murdered has been alleged by a source with access to the findings of his polygraph and narco tests.
During his six-hour-long narco test, the source said, Krishna admitted, “Aarushi and Hemraj were alive when he reached the Talwars’ home the midnight the murders happened and gave graphic descriptions of the crime”.
According to the case diary and disclosure memo produced by the CBI in court, Krishna told interrogators that Hemraj asked him to bring a khukri to the Talwar home on May 14, a day before the murders, and that he had gone over to hand the knife to Hemraj.
Krishna, however, according to the officer, “did not throw light on the role of doctor Talwar in the crime,” though he indicated he knew about how and where the murder weapon and cellphones of Aarushi and Hemraj were destroyed/hidden.
