Rajesh Talwar has revealed crucial details relating to the investigation of Aarushi and Hemraj’s murder, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) told a Ghaziabad court on Thursday.

After grilling Talwar for three days, the agency said he had disclosed vital information pertaining to the murders and they are trying to verify them. The Noida Police has accused Talwar of killing his daughter, Aarushi and domestic help, Hemraj on the night of May 15-16. Talwar was remanded to 14-days judicial custody after the CBI did not press for an extension of his remand.

Second polygraph test

Before being produced in court, Talwar was subjected to another lie-detector test at the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL). On Wednesday too, Talwar had been subjected to a polygraph test, which did not provide the agency with any further leads in the case. Defence counsel Satish Tamta said the test was conducted to verify the veracity of his statement.

CBI judicial custody

Talwar was produced in the court of Special Judicial Magistrate, Sapna Mishra and the CBI requested for him to be sent to judicial custody. The hearing was brief. CBI prosecutor, Suresh Batra, submitted an application for ending the remand. The court, thereafter, ordered Talwar to be sent to District Jail in Dasna.

Vital leads

Talwar revealed crucial details related to the investigation of the case, which are being verified. He has disclosed vital information pertaining to the murders, the agency said.

CBI prosecutor Suresh Batra hinted that facts revealed by the accused and witnesses are being verified and the continuance of the judicial custody of Talwar is required as further interrogations may be required after the receipt of various reports.

Bail application

Talwar’s bail application will come up for hearing on Saturday. Tamta said, “The bail application would come up before the sessions court. Talwar is cooperating with the investigating agency and he had also agreed to undergo a polygraph test.”

Talwar refuses to comment

Talwar did not reply when asked by reporters if he was happy with the CBI probe. His wife, Nupur and brother, Dinesh were also present in the court along with other relatives. Retired Noida Police officer, KK Gautam was again questioned on Thursday. The agency along with the municipal agency might search the sewers near the house for more evidence.
