The doctor who performed the post-mortem of Aarushi Talwar in May 2008 told a court here on Wednesday that the revelations he made a day earlier had not been mentioned in his report because they were his “subjective findings”.
Dr Sunil Dohre was cross-examined on Wednesday as a prosecution witness in the murders of teenager Aarushi and her family’s domestic help Hemraj. Aarushi’s dentist parents Rajesh and Nupur are on trial for the murders.
Dr Dohre had told the court on Tuesday that Aarushi’s body had possibly been tampered with.
His testimony is considered crucial to back up the CBI’s claim that the crime scene had been “dressed up” and a golf stick had been used as the murder weapon along with a sharp-edged surgical tool.
Dr Dohre said his revelations on the weapons had not been mentioned in the post-mortem report but was part of his statement to the CBI on May 28, 2010.
A panel of eight experts from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), which included Dohre, in September 2008 had submitted a report that the murders could have been committed using a khukri which has both sharp and blunt edges.
