The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thusday claimed that dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar "mislead" the investigators during the course of Aarushi murder case probe on different occasions and were involved in the destruction of evidence.
"Talwars mislead the investigators during the course of investigation on different occasions. They were also involved in the destruction of evidence. By our arguments, charges of murder with common intention (Section 302/34) and destruction of evidence (Section 201/34) are proved on both the accused. Besides, Section 203 of IPC is also proved on Rajesh for registering wrong FIR at police station," Special CBI prosecutor R K Saini told the Court of Additional Sessions Judge Shyam Lal.
"Talwars' conduct has been suspicious from the beginning of this case. For instance, when Noida Sector 20 station asked Rajesh about the identity of body, he did not recognise him (Hemraj) though persons present there said it was Hemraj. As per post mortem examination report and statements of police officials, Hemraj's body was not in such condition that it could not be recognised," Saini told the court here.
