Aarushi’s parents want to meet CBI director

Thursday, December 30, 2010

NEW DELHI - After the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a closure report on the murder of Aarushi Talwar and Hemraj, the parents of the 14-year-old girl are seeking an appointment with the director of the country’s top investigative agency.

We will request the CBI director for an appointment. I hope he gives it, Nupur Talwar told reporters here Thursday.

Her husband, Rajesh Talwar, said they were speaking with their lawyers for the next step. We are now speaking to our lawyers and looking at what next to do, he said.

Aarushi 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 killed on the flat’s terrace a day later.

Rajesh Talwar was arrested and kept behind bars for 50 days in connection with the killings, but was later let off because of lack of evidence.

The CBI later arrested his medical assistant Krishna and two other domestic helps in the neighbourhood, Raj Kumar and Vijay Mandal.

All of them were freed after a period of detention while the CBI continued to hunt for material evidence in the sensational case.

The CBI Wednesday sought to close Aarushi Talwar’s murder as an unsolved case, citing lack of evidence.

The parents had slammed the CBI’s decision and vowed to continue the fight to find their daughter’s killers. Every day I promise Aarushi that I will get justice for her. I promise this every day when I talk to her,” Nupur Talwar said Wednesday. “That is the only purpose of my existence to get justice for my child.”
