New Delhi , July 11 (ANI): Dr. Rajesh Talwar, an accused in the killing of his daughter Aarushi, today got a bail on a surety of Rs. 10 lakh after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) gave him a clean chit and urged a special court in Ghaziabad to pass appropriate orders on his bail application.

The investigating agency said that there is no substantial evidence against the Talwars.

CBI Joint Director Arun Kumar told reporters in a press briefing: ””The Noida Polices charge that Rajesh Talwar was angry with his daughter as he had allegedly seen her in a ””compromising”” position was based on a statement made by one of the accused Krishna who had misled investigators but he later confessed to the crime in the narco test.

Though the first polygraph test conducted on Talwar proved inconclusive, no deception was found in the second test. Nupur Talwar’’s polygraph tests showed similar results, he said.

He also took the names of Durranis servant Rajkumar and another person Vijay Mandal of being involved in the crime.

Kumar said, while reconstructing the crime scene, Rajkumar, Krishna and Talwar’’s domestic help Hemraj had consumed alcohol on the day of the murder and went to Aarushi’’s room. They then gagged her and tried to sexually assault her.

Kumar and Krishna took Hemraj to the terrace and killed him following a clash between Rajkumar, Krishna and Hemraj in Aarushi’’s room, he added.

Rajkumar, in his narco-analysis test, confessed that he and Krishna then went back to Aarushi’’s room, hit her with a sharp object before slitting her throat, he added.

Talwar was arrested on May 23 a week after fourteen-year-old Aarushi was found dead with her throat slit in the Talwar house. The body of Hemraj was found on the terrace a day later. (ANI)
