Noida, Jun 2: Rajesh Talwar, chief suspect in Noida Double murder was sent to the custody of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for a day. Earlier, the CBI on Monday moved an application before a designated court in Noida to seek the remand of dentist Rajesh Talwar, arrested by the Uttar Pradesh police in connection with the murder of his daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.
The CBI team had on Sunday registered a first information report(FIR) in the matter. A special team of the CBI on Sunday began probing the murder of Noida teenager Aarushi Talwar and her domestic help Hemraj with the interrogation of the girl's mother Nupur Talwar. Fourteen-year-old Aarushi was found dead with her throat slit on May 16 morning and the body of servant Hemraj, who was initially suspected of the crime, was found a day later on the terrace. The Noida police had arrested dentist Rajesh Talwar for the murders eight days later, saying he first killed the servant and then his daughter after finding them together May 15 night in close quarters "but not in compromising position".
The police also said Rajesh killed Aarushi because she had come to know of his extra-marital affair with a colleague and had threatened to expose him.
After the Noida police, the case was investigated by the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force. The callous probe by the police was evident as it did not even bother to seal the crime scene and virtually everybody was allowed inside the house.
Following a public outrage over botched up investigations, the central government on late Saturday issued a notification transferring the case to the CBI.
