Aarushi Talwar New Delhi, Jan 2 (ANI): The three domestic helps, who were earlier chargesheeted in the murder of Aarushi Talwar but later found innocent, are planning to sue the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for implicating them in the case.

The counsel of the three helps — Krishna, Rajkumar and Vijay Mandal — applied for an official copy of the closure report of the case, and said he will seek compensation from the CBI.

“My clients were not involved in this double murder case, but they were arrested and interrogated because the CBI motive was to bring Aarushi’s father Rajesh Talwar out of the jail,” advocate Naresh Yadav alleged.

On Thursday, miffed by the CBI for not informing him of its decision to close the murder case of Aarushi Talwar, her father Rajesh Talwar, said: “We had pinned our hopes on the investigation, but it’s been shattered.”

Talwar said: “I got to know of it from the media. And, there has been no communication from the agency. We had done everything to get our daughter justice. Why did the CBI do such a thing?”.

On Wednesday, the investigating agency, in its closure case said the case has been damaged beyond repair and that crucial evidence has been handled badly.

The CBI took over the investigation into the murders of Aarushi and Hemraj on June 1, 2008, forming a 25-member team in a resolute attempt to crack the case.

The investigating agency later constituted a new team to look into the case, and recovered Aarushi’s phone Nokia N-72 by tracking the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number six months after the murder.

The CBI also questioned Aarushi’s family with respect to the recovered phone.

The CBI had also conducted narco-analysis tests on Aarushi’s parents to examine the possibility of their involvement or that of any other person.

Aarushi was found murdered in her Noida home on May 15, 2008. She was found with her throat slit and several stab wounds to her face. The family’s domestic help Hemraj was later found dead on the rooftop. (ANI)
