Aarushi-Hemraj case: Defence tears into CBI's claims

Defence tears into CBI's claims
New Delhi, Oct 31:Trashing CBI claim that Aarushi Talwar was hit by a golf club before being murdered, counsel for dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar on Wednesday told a court here that the teenager's post mortem report had not suggested the use of a stick in the attack. Talwar's lawyer Tanveer Ahmed Mir told the special CBI court that according to the Aarushi's post mortem examination report, she had suffered hairline fracture on her forehead.

"Forensic expert and defence witness Dr RK Sharma, former HoD of forensic science at AIIMS, told during his testimony in the court that hairline fracture could not be the result of golf club attack," the lawyer said.This contradicts CBI claim that the girl was hit by a golf club, as a depressed fracture is inflicted if a golf stick is used, he said.

Mir also said that various scientific tests like brain-mapping, polygraphs conducted on Talwar couple don't point finger on the dentist couple. "No DNA and biological fluid belonging to Aarushi and Hemraj was detected on golf club recovered from the Talwar's house," he said. Mir said that there was no v-shape injury on Aarushi's forehead, "but Dr Sunil Dohre later created such things in the pot mortem report". Dohre had conducted Aarushi's post-mortem. "CFSL expert MS Dahiya prepared his report without seeing or examining golf club seized from Talwar's house," he said. Defence said that Dahiya prepared his report on what CBI officials provided to him like photographs of the deceased, postmortem reports.
