Lucknow, Sep 6: Senior IPS official Arun Kumar, deputed to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), has been sent back to his state cadre Uttar Pradesh due to his poor handling of the Aarushi murder case.

The decision followed the startling revelation about surreptitious replacement of Aarushi Talwar's vaginal swab that was taken during the course of the post-mortem, a senior police official told reporters in Lucknow.

Sources said CBI director Ashwini Kumar, who was initially all praise about Arun Kumar, posted as a deputy inspector general in the agency and widely known for his uprightness, found the lapse in the high profile case extremely embarrassing.

School-girl 14-year-old Aarushi was found murdered at her residence on May 16, 2008 and a day later the body of the domestic help, Hemraj was recovered too.
