Aarushi murder: What are 26 evidence against Rajesh and Nupur Talwar
Five years after Aarushi, 13, and Hemraj, a servant, were killed, the CBI court sentenced Aarushi's parents-- dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar-- to life imprisonment on Nov 26, 2013. The sentencing was based on 26 circumstantial evidences
On the fateful night of May 15 and 16, 2008, both the accused, Rajesh Talwar and his wife Nupur Talwar were last seen with both the deceased, Aarushi Talwar and Hemraj, in Flat No. L-32, Jalvayu Vihar at about 9.30 P.M. by Umesh Sharma, the driver
On the morning of May 16, 2008 at about 6.00 A.M, Aarushi was found murdered in her bedroom which was adjacent to the bedroom of the accused and there was only partition wall between two bed-rooms.
The dead body of the servant Hemraj was found lying in the pool of blood on the terrace of flat no. L-32, Jalvayu Vihar on May 17, 2008 and the door of terrace was found locked from inside.
There is a close proximity between the point of time when both the accused and the deceased persons were last seen together alive and the deceased were murdered in the intervening night of May 15 and 16, 2008 and as such the time is so small that
The door of Aarushi's bedroom was fitted with automatic click-shut lock. Mahesh Kumar Mishra, the then S.P. (City), Noida has deposed that when he talked to Rajesh Talwar on May 16, 2008 in the morning, he had told him that in the preceding night at
The internet connection remained active in the night of the gory incident suggesting that at least one of the accused remained awake.
There is nothing to show that an outsider(s) came inside the house in the said night after 9.30 P.M.
There was no disruption in the supply of electricity during that night.
No person was seen loitering near the flats in suspicious circumstances during that night.
There is no evidence of forcible entry of any outsider(s) in the flat during the night of occurrence.
There is no evidence of any larcenous act in the flat.
In the morning of May 16, 2008 when the maid, Bharti Mandal came to the flat for the purpose of cleaning and mopping, a false pretext was made by Nupur Talwar that door might have been locked from outside by the servant Hemraj although it was not
The house maid Bharti Mandal has nowhere stated that when she came inside the flat both the accused were found weeping.
From the testimony of Bharti Mandal, it is clear that when she reached the flat and talked to Nupur, she had not complained about the murder of Aarushi and rather told that Hemraj might have gone to fetch milk from Mother dairy after locking the
The clothes of both the accused were not found soaked with blood. It is highly unnatural that parents of the deceased Aarushi will not cling to and hug her on seeing her murdered.
No outsider(s) will dare to take Hemraj to the terrace in severely injured condition and thereafter search out a lock to be placed in the door of the terrace.
It is not possible that an outsider(s) after committing the murders will muster courage to take Scotch whisky knowing that the parents of the deceased Aarushi are in the nearby room and his top priority will be to run away from the crime scene
No outsider(s) will bother to take the body of Hemraj to the terrace. Moreover, a single person cannot take the body to the terrace.
The door of the terrace was never locked prior to the occurrence but it was found locked in the morning of May 16, 2008 and the accused did not give the key of the lock to the police despite being asked to give the same.
The accused have taken plea in the statements under section 313 Cr.P.C, that about 8-10 days before the murder, painting of cluster had started and the navvies used to take water from water tank placed on the terrace of the flat and Hemraj started
If an outsider(s) may have committed the crime in question after locking the door of terrace and had gone out of the flat, then the outer most mesh door or middle mesh door must have been found latched from outside.
The motive of commission of the crime has been established.
It is not possible that after commission of the crime, an outsider(s) will dress-up the crime scene.
The golf-club no.5 was thrown in the loft after commission of the crime and the same was produced after many months by the accused Rajesh Talwar.
The pattern of head and neck injuries of both the accused persons are almost similar in nature and can be caused by golf-club and scalpel respectively.
The accused Rajesh Talwar was a member of the Golf-Club NOIDA and golfclubs were produced by him before the CBI and scalpel is used by the dentists and both the accused are dentists by profession.
