Mother of Rajesh Talwar’s lawyer murderedMarch 8th, 2011 - 9:06 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 8 (IANS) The 85-year-old mother of a lawyer, who appeared for dentist Rajesh Talwar — facing trial for the murder of his teenaged daughter Aarushi in Noida, was found strangled in her house in east Delhi Tuesday evening, police said.
“Anna Mammen, mother of Rebecca John, was found dead in her house in Vivek Vihar in east Delhi around 4.30 p.m.,” said a senior police officer.
John represented Talwar in the Aarushi murder case in a court in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad.
Mammen was alone in her house when the incident took place. “Some unidentified men strangled her with electrical wires lying in her house,” said the officer.
Initial probe hinted that it could be a case of robbery-cum-murder, he said.
Fourteen-year-old Aarushi, a Class 9 student of Delhi Public School, Noida, was found murdered at her parents’ apartment in Noida May 16, 2008.
The family’s servant Hemraj was initially suspected for the killing but his body was found on the flat’s terrace a day later.
The Ghaziabad court ordered Feb 9 that the Talwars be charged with murder, destruction of evidence and criminal conspiracy.
