Ghaziabad, Jan 3 (ANI): A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Ghaziabad on Monday registered the investigating agency's closure report in the Aarushi Talwar murder case.

Special judge Preety Singh said that the closure will be registered first by the court registrar and then notice to parties involved and cognizance will be taken later.

The date for the hearing will be decided after lunch break today.

The court asked the prosecution what was the hurry to file the closure report. The court also said that the investigating agency could have waited for the court to re-open later.

On Wednesday, the investigating agency, in its closure case said the case has been damaged beyond repair and that crucial evidence has been handled badly.

The report had sparked national outrage over the fact that the CBI accepts that this is a case that cannot be solved.

The 30-page document also lists Aarushi's father - Rajesh Talwar - as the only suspect in the double murder, but says that the agency could not find enough evidence against him, or establish a motive.

The CBI 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 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)
