DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics in Hyderabad made this startling disclosure after revealing that the slides sent to the centre had no traces of semen.
This contradicts the reports with respect to the initial medical tests. Dr Sunil Dohere who had drawn vaginal swabs following the murder had reported that the swabs contained a white discharge, suggestive of seminal fluid.
"Regarding investigation in Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case, we have to file a status report in Supreme Court. We cannot share anything in this connection as the matter is sub-judice and is also under investigation," a CBI spokesperson said.
Some reports state that CBI was aware of this for about eight months and did nothing about it. While the CBI refuses to comment on the matter, CDFD has confirmed the reports.
A teenager, Aarushi Talwar was found murdered at her residence on May 16, 2008 and a day later the body of the domestic help, Hemraj was recovered too.
