The remand was sanctioned by the Noida chief judicial magistrate who, however, turned down the CBI counsel's plea for a seven-day-custody. Meanwhile, CBI sleuths also went to the Noida Sector-53 home of Talwar's associate, Dr Anita Durrani, to question her. This was the first time that Dr Durrani was formally questioned by any investigating agency. The CBI also interrogated Dr Talwar's driver Umesh, Hemraj's son-in-law Jeevan Sharma and several others.
Earlier, the CBI team took samples of bloodstains from the walls of Dr Talwar home and inspected the victims' rooms. The team also inspected the staircase, bedrooms and living room of the house.
Fourteen-year-old Aarushi was found dead with her throat slit on May 16 in her house at Jal Vayu Vihar in Sector-25 of Noida. The body of domestic help Hemraj was found a day later on the terrace.
