NEW DELHI - A day after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) sought to close the Aarushi Talwar murder case due to lack of evidence, Women and Child Development Minister Krishna Tirath Thursday termed the development as “unfortunate” and said the guilty must be punished.
“If you know that a crime has been committed and then that case is closed, then it’s very unfortunate. Be it the CBI or someone else, it’s important to nail the guilty,” Tirath told reporters Thursday.
The CBI Wednesday sought to close Aarushi and Hemraj’s murder as an unsolved case.
Aarushi, the daughter of dentist parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, was found murdered under mysterious circumstances in their Jalvayu Vihar apartment in Noida May 16, 2008. The family’s domestic help, Hemraj, whom Noida police initially suspected for the murder, was also found dead on the flat’s terrace a day later.
Reacting to the news, National Commission for Women (NCW) chairperson Girija Vyas Thursday said that investigation in the case “must be continued”.
