Aarushi suspects’ custody ends today
All three suspects in the Aarushi murder case will be produced in court on Friday. The CBI custody of Raj Kumar ends on Friday while the judicial custody of the two other suspects, Krishna and Dr Rajesh Talwar, also ends the same day.
Sources said the investigating agency could make some new revelations in court on Friday on the investigation conducted by it in the last two weeks. During this time, they subjected Raj Kumar, the domestic help of Praful and Anita Durani, to a second narco-analysis test.
Meanwhile, a CBI team again carried out searches around Talwar's house on Thursday. The search operation lasted for around two hours.
The four-member team reached Talwar's house at L block early in the morning. They went upstairs to the terrace and looked around. Later, they searched the bushes and drains around Talwar's house. Sources said the search was carried out after 'new revelations' made by Raj Kumar in his narco test conducted on Wednesday.
"The judicial custody of Talwar and Krishna will end tomorrow. They will be produced before the CBI court," said Dasna jail superintendent, V.K. Singh.
Talwar's advocate Satish Tamta said: "So far, the CBI has no evidence against Talwar. We are going to appeal for his release. Let us see what stand they take in court tomorrow."
Krishna's advocate F.C. Sharma said, "Let us see what the CBI tells the court."
It's nearly two months since Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj were found murdered at Talwar's Jalvayu Vihar home. The CBI, which took over the probe on June 1, has failed to make any concrete breakthrough in the case so far and has not said who killed the two. While they have arrested two persons, Krishna and Raj Kumar, they have continued to oppose the bail application of Rajesh Talwar.
