Aarushi murder case: Now, an e-mail twist

An eight-month-old email written in ambiguous SMS-style abbreviated lingo that Aarushi sent to her father Dr Rajesh Talwar and Internet chat transcripts with friends were submitted as 'evidence' in a court on Thursday by the police while requesting for a narco analysis test of Talwar.

The material seems like a perfectly normal conversation among today's teenagers. Based on this though, the police have claimed in their requisition that Aarushi and her father were on bad terms for the past several months, which finally led to the girl's killing by Talwar.

The big question is— have the police goofed up yet again by misinterpreting the Internet conversations as conveying a strained relationship between the girl and her father?

The email seems to have been sent by Aarushi after she probably did something that irked her parents— like secretly watching a movie, perhaps with some friends, or maybe tasting alcohol at a party. Aarushi seems to be apologetic about something she "tried out" but says she "wnt do it again".

The line— "want do it again"— it seems is the point of contention. What did she do which she shouldn't have? Also, could she have meant she 'want to do it again' but missed writing 'to'.

The only way this seemingly innocuous conversation could be taken against Talwar is if it's read like this— Talwar didn't like Aarushi's close relationships with her male friends and objected to something 'wrong' she did on that particular occasion.

This email was generated from Aarushi's e-mail address (angel_rok1624 @yahoo.co.in) and sent to Talwar's address (drrtalwar@hotmail.com). The police claimed someone tried to hack Aarushi and Rajesh Talwar's log in and passwords after the murder and also attempted to delete a few conversations.

The Investigating Officer attached a few other chat conversations sent and received by Aarushi to and from three of her friends, including one who is said to be her close friend who was later quizzed by the police.

They sought the court's permission to conduct a narco-test on Talwar's, claiming this would further help the police to retrieve vital clues from the accused and reveal the exact motive behind the murder.
