Ghaziabad, Dec 29 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a closure report in the Ghaziabad court on Wednesday into the murder case of thirteen-year-old Aarushi Talwar and her family's domestic help Hemraj, saying it could not get sufficient evidence to nail anyone in the case.

The investigating agency in its closure case said the case has been damaged beyond repair and the crucial evidence handled badly.

The lawyer for the Talwar family later said he will consider to appeal against the investigating agency.

"We will file a protest petition against the CBI," said Aarushi's mother Dr. Nupur Talwar's lawyer.

The Central Bureau of Investigation took over the investigation into the murders of Aarushi and Hemraj on June 1, 2008, forming a 25-member team in a resolute attempt to crack the case.

The investigating agency later constituted a new team to look into the case, and recovered Aarushi's phone Nokia N-72 by tracking the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number six months after the murder.

The CBI also questioned Aarushi's family with respect to the recovered phone.

In June 2008, the CBI arrested three men, including Krishna, a helper at Dr. Talwar's dental clinic, for Aarushi's arrest. The other two men worked as domestic helpers in the Talwars' neighbourhood.

However, three months later, all three men were granted bail when the CBI admitted that it had no hard evidence against them.

The CBI had also conducted narco-analysis tests on Aarushi's parents to examine the possibility of their involvement or that of any other person.

Aarushi was found murdered in her Noida home on May 15, 2008. She was found with her throat slit and several stab wounds to her face. The family's domestic help Hemraj was later found dead on the rooftop. (ANI)
