New Delhi, Jul 11 (UNI) The CBI today presented the "unsubstantiated sequence of events" of the day of crime, in the May 15-16 Aarushi-Hemraj murder case.
'Prime accused' Dr Rajesh Talwar was today granted bail by a CBI court after the agency asked for an ''appropriate decision'' because it had not found any evidence against him so far, as the Noida Police case diary also showed.
Dr Talwar had been under judicial remand since May 23 and was granted bail on two personal bonds of Rs five lakh each.
Meanwhile, CBI Jt Director (Special Crime) Arun Kumar told media that the agency today arrested Vijay Mandal, servant of Talwars' neighbours and a friend of Hemraj, on the basis of the confessions made by Krishna.
''Vijay Mandal has been arrested on the basis of disclosures made by Krishna during narco tests. Mandal too had undergone psychological assessment test, polygraph test and brain finger printing test along with the narco analysis test.'' Krishna, in his confessions made during various scientific tests conducted on him, had said that on the day of the double murder, he, along with Rajkumar and Vijay Mandal, killed Aarushi and Hemraj, said the Jt Director.
He had revealed that all the three were called by Hemraj to the Talwar's residence on May 15, where they all had liquor after which the trio went to Aarushi's room. Seeing them, she screamed but was silenced when hit by a blunt object after which they tried to sexually assault her.
Krishna and Rajkumar had an argument with Hemraj over the assault, following which they went to the roof, to sort out the matter, where Hemraj was killed.
Both then came down and slit Aarushi's throat with a 'khukri' which killed her.
However, by his own admission, CBI Jt Director (Special Crime) Arun Kumar said the present details were based only on forensic reports and narco tests conducted on the accused so far.
''We still have to find corroborative evidence to support what is being said as these are not admissable in the court. We have not reached any conclusion till now. Whatever has been said is based on forensic and other tests.'' Mr Kumar also said confession of the accused had been corroborated forensically but more substantial proofs were needed which could be presented in the court.
''Aarushi's blood group was 'B' while that of Hemraj was 'AB'.
Yet Hemraj's blood was found on Aarushi's pillow and on the stairs.
All this has been proved in the scientific tests.'' Also, injury on Aarushi's head and the slitting of her neck later too has been proved, he added.
''Nevertheless, finger print report is still awaited, though the digital camera report did not provide any link with the crime.'' Besides this, the report on the T-shirt found at Rajkumar's place has yet to come, added the Jt Director.
Mr Kumar also clarified that there was no narco test conducted on Rajesh and Nupur Talwar as no deception was found in their polygraph tests.
