New Delhi, Jun 10: On Tuesday, the bail plea of Dr Rajesh Talwar was dismissed by CBI court. The bail application of Rajesh Talwar, the accused in the Noida double murder case, came up for hearing today. Citing the reason that the case is still going on in Sessions Court, judge dismissed the bail plea. Fresh bail plea is filed in the Sessions Court.

On Monday, CBI team and forensic experts conducted a fresh search in the house of Rajesh Talwar to find more clues into the murder of his daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj. CBI Joint Director Arun Kumar led the team. The CBI team, accompanied by Talwar's compounder Krishna, reached his Noida residence at around 11.45 pm. Earlier, the CBI had put compounder Krishna through a six-hour lie detector test. The team claimed to have obtained some "incriminating clues" against him from the room of Hemraj, the slain domestic help. During investigations it was found that three people were present in Hemraj's room and consumed alcohol on May 15 night, when Aarushi's murder took place. One of them was Krishna, the identity of the third person is not yet known, said CBI sources.

On June 1, the CBI registered Aarushi's murder case against "unknown persons". The Noida police arrested Aarushi's dentist father Rajesh Talwar as the prime accused but the CBI is treating him only as a "suspect". Aarushi, a fourteen-year-old girl was found killed in her Noida home May 16 with her throat slit. The Noida police initially named domestic help Hemraj and even sent teams to trace him, but backtracked after his body was found a day later on the terrace of the Talwars' house.

The police arrested Talwar on May 23, accusing him of killing his daughter in a fit of rage as he objected to her being close to Hemraj. The police had said at the time that Talwar first killed Hemraj and then his daughter. The CBI took over the case after the Noida police drew flak for shoddy investigations.
