Recording his statement in a special CBI court in Ghaziabad on Wednesday, April 17, CBI Superintendent of Police AGL Kaul recalled how Dinesh Talwar had asked KK Gautam to snub "rape angle" in the double murder case. Former Noida superintendent of police KK Gautam was a key witness in the murder case. had conducted the postmortem on Aarushi's body.
KK Gautam earlier in the court had claimed that chairman of Noida Eye Hospital Sushil Chaudhry had called him and requested him to hide the rape angle in the postmortem. Dr Chaudhury is believed to be a close friend of Dinesh Talwar.
Kaur was quoted as saying, "Based on KK Gautam's account to me that he got a call from Dr Sushil Choudhary who asked him if it was possible to remove mention of rape from the post-mortem report, I mentioned it in my final report."
"Dr Choudhary had reportedly told Gautam that he got a call from Dinesh Talwar who asked him to call Gautam to see if he (Gautam) could help. I had made K K Gautam, Dr Sushil Choudhary, and Dinesh Talwar sit in the same room in a ‘confrontation', but this was not videographed. At that time, when I put forth my final report," added Kaur in the court.
Earlier Kaur cornered Aarushi's parents - Dr Rajesh and Dr Nupur Talwar in the court. The CBI official said, "the house has only one entrance and exit and no one could come in and commit the crime."
Kaur, who had led the CBI team in 2008, stated, "No one from outside could have killed Aarushi or Hemaraj," he said.
This comes as a major blow to the Talwars. Recently, they have been cornered with investigating officers and witnesses stating that no one entered their flat at Jalvayu Vihar.
Recently, in a statement by an official of the Gujarat Forensic Science University (GFSU) to the CBI court the official said that the crime was probably committed using a 'golf stick and a surgical knife'. He further said that 'no outsider except the Talwars were involved in the murder'.
14-year-old Aarushi was found dead at her Noida residence on May 16, 2008. A day later, their domestic help Hemraj's body was also found in the terrace of their house.
Rajesh and Nupur, who are now released on bail, have been named the sole suspects in the CBI closure report.
