Noida, May 18 (IANS) A sharp-edged surgical instrument was used to slit the throats of Noida girl Aarushi Talwar and her servant Hemraj and both were killed at around the same time, a police official said Sunday citing the autopsy report. Giving details of the report, Superintendent of Police Mahesh Mishra said there was no alcohol found in Hemraj.

Hemraj was suspected to be the teenager’s killer earlier and police teams had fanned out to search for him.
The body of Hemraj was discovered by retired police officer K.K. Gautam when he asked the police to break the lock of the terrace door after noticing blood stains on the stairs. The body was found in a partially decomposed state.
The Assistant Director General of Uttar Pradesh Police Brij Lal has announced that the probe into the double murder would be carried out by the state Special Task Force (STF). The murder was being investigated by the Noida Police.
Aarushi, 15, a Class 9 student of Delhi Public School, Noida, was found murdered in her bedroom at her L-32 Jalvayu Vihar home in Sector-25 here Friday.
The teenager, the only daughter of a dentist couple, had eaten dinner with her family Thursday night and then retired to her room in the three-bedroom apartment.
At 6 a.m. Friday, her father Rajesh Talwar woke up to open the door to a part-time domestic help and peeped into Aarushi’s room. To his horror, he found his daughter lying dead in a pool of blood. Her throat was slit and there were stab wounds on her forehead, shoulder and chest.
