Noida, May 23 (IANS) DPS student Arushi Talwar’s father Rajesh Talwar was Friday arrested for the twin murders of his daughter and domestic help Hemraj at their Noida residence. Talwar, who was arrested after sustained interrogation, was taken to an undisclosed location Friday morning.
“We have arrested Rajesh Talwar for double murder,” a police official said.
Arushi, 15, a Class 9 student of Delhi Public School (Noida), was found dead with her throat slit and multiple stab injuries on her face, chest and neck exactly a week ago on May 16.
The teenager, the only daughter of the dentist couple, reportedly had dinner with her family the night before the murder and retired to her room in the three-bedroom apartment.
The Uttar Police earlier suspected family domestic help Hemraj and even announced a reward for his arrest. A day later, the case took a murkier turn when the police discovered his body on the terrace of the house.
