Will examine lapses in Aarushi probe: Moily

Thursday, December 30, 2010

NEW DELHI - Even as the CBI has sought closure in the Aarushi Talwar murder case, union Law Minister M. Veerappa Moily said the government will look at the lapses in the probe that led to the case remaining unsolved even after more than two years.

“I felt its a brutal murder, known brutal murder. Its a matter somewhere we need to work on… where the lapses are, Moily said in an interview to NDTV Thursday.

There are some cases where clue cant be obtained. This is one such case which is most unfortunate. At the same time, we need to know why it couldnt be done? Why the investigation couldnt be taken forward? This is something that we need to know, the minister said.

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 killed on the flat’s terrace a day later.

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