The key to nailing the Noida double murder culprits is in deconstructing complex, 'undignified' relations among the key players in the mystery, Uttar Pradesh police and government hinted on Thursday.
While announcing the government's willingness to hand over the case to the Central Bureau of Investigations, Chief Minister Mayawati said that some 'grave' facts had been revealed during the investigations so far and also submitted to a city court.
"Some facts of serious nature have come to light but it would not be dignified for me to reveal them," she said, strengthening the police story that extra marital relations among people, mainly Dr. Rajesh Talwar and Anita Durani, were behind the killings.
Mayawati's guarded statement came amidst outrage by women and child rights activists on Inspector General Gurudarshan Singh's allegations that Dr Rajesh Talwar killed Aarushi in a fit of rage after catching her and domestic help Hemraj in an "objectionable position".
The case diaries that were submitted to a city court on Tuesday while seeking Dr. Rajesh Talwar's police custody also state that Aarushi had begun telling neighbours and friends about her father's adultery, a fact that irritated Talwar no end.
Earlier, Inspector General Singh had called Talwar characterless immediately after his arrest. "Even his domestic help (Hemraj) knew of his affair and had told friends about it," Singh said.
That the police is digging deeper into the personal lives of all the people concerned was clear when they seized Aarushi and her father's computer to scan their email accounts and other documents.
The families of both Rajesh Talwar and Anita Durani have however refuted these allegations. Nupur Talwar has gone on record vouching for her husband's faithfulness and Anita's husband has also fully backed her. Rajesh's brother Dinesh in fact called talks of the families indulging in wife swapping as sick and dirty.
