New Delhi, Sep 9 (IANS) The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said Tuesday it would not file a chargesheet in the murders of teenager Aarushi Talwar and her domestic help Hemraj and would not oppose bail for the three accused in the sensational double murder.The investigating agency was to submit its chargesheet before Sep 10, 2008 to meet the 90-day deadline since the first arrest in the case - that of Aarushi’s father Rajesh Talwar on May 23.
Aarushi was found killed with her throat slit in her Noida home May 16. The Noida police initially blamed family help Hemraj but backtracked after his body too was found a day later on the terrace of the apartment.
Aarushi’s dentist father was arrested a week later.
On July 11, CBI director Arun Kumar gave a clean chit to Talwar and accused his medical assistant Krishna and two others, domestic helps Raj Kumar and Vijay Mandal, on the basis of narco analysis tests.
On Tuesday, a special CBI court in Ghaziabad rejected the bail plea of Raj Kumar. Earlier, on Sep 4 last week, bail had been given to Vijay Mandal. The third accused Krishna’s bail plea has been deferred to Sep 19 by the court.
