During a hearing related to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) closure-report on Tuesday, Dr Rajesh Talwar submitted his protest-petition in the case and refuted various CBI’s claims stated in the 31-page closure report.

Termed as the most important part in the CBI closure report, Talwar’s petition raised questions over the CBI’s findings in “dressing up of scene of crime” and its other important aspects.

Commenting over various inferences drawn by the CBI, Talwar stated that the CBI investigators had no occasion to inspect the scene of crime as they were entrusted with the investigations only on June 1, 2008.

The first investigations after double murder of Aarushi Talwar and domestic help Hemraj Banjade on the intervening night of May 15-16, 2008 at Talwar’s Jalvayu Vihar residence at Noida were undertaken by the UP police.

Commenting on CBI’s finding of presence of post mortem cleaning of Aarushi’s private parts in “dressing up of scene of crime” pages, Talwar’s petition states that the doctor conducting the teenager’s post mortem would not have omitted the very fact, and if there was any cleaning, the doctors would not have noticed any white discharge in her private parts.

The petition also states that there was no evidence with the CBI to suggest that the door to the terrace was locked for the first time on May 15-16, 2008. Talwar’s response stated that in any event the key of the terrace lock was in the bunch of keys that Hemraj carried with him, which has not been recovered till date.

Talwar also stated that no member of the Uttar Pradesh police or any other person, who visited the spot, revealed the existence of blood stains/drag marks or wiped-blood stains on the staircase to him.

A whisky bottle, containing the blood of both of the victims was found lying on the dining-table of Talwar’s flat after the crime. If the petitioner was involved in any kind of dressing-up of scene of crime, he would have removed that piece of evidence, Talwar said in his petition.

Stating it as CBI’s lapse, Talwar stated that the CBI had taken an easy way out to transfer the blame of these lapses over the petitioner, who did not obstruct and had no control of the investigations.

Tuesday’s proceedings were adjourned due to attack on Talwar and the CBI counsels would argue over Talwar’s protest-petition on February 8.
