Thanks to the CBI, the Talwars are guilty before proven guilty

Thanks to the CBI, the Talwars are guilty before proven guilty

Namita Bhandare in Aarushi on prime time (Another Day, February 19) is right in not assuming that the Talwars are innocent while simultaneously presenting the case from their point of view. The CBI’s closure report states that the parents are guilty. But it does not substantiate the claim with any satisfactory evidence. This seems to have been done to force the court to treat the closure report as a chargesheet, which would make the CBI’s case stronger if the parents fail to prove their innocence.

Bhandare presents a balanced and sensible commentary on the issue. Why is difficult to accept that the 14-year-old was a victim of circumstances? How is it possible to systematically destroy all evidence overnight? How did the parents and the police fail to spot the blood trail on stairs?

Pakistan’s priority is Pakistan

With reference to Barkha Dutt’s article When the iron’s cold (Third Eye, February 19), the Indo-Pak peace talks have lost their significance. India failed to take suitable action against Pakistan when it was necessary. Today, Pakistan is at war with itself and that’s why New Delhi or Kashmir is no longer on its priority list.

Modi’s the man of the moment

If what Samar Halarnkar writes in his article Narendra Modi 2.0 (Maha Bharat, February 24) about a district collector in Gujarat — who has overhauled the public distribution system, destroyed the transporter-seller-politician nexus and is not forced to succumb to any political pressure — is true, then it is a big achievement, the credit of which goes to the chief minister. Narendra Modi is an honest politician and an administrator par excellence.
