{image-aarushi-talwar case_16062008.jpg news.oneindia.in} Ghaziabad, June 16: CBI investigation into the murder of teenager Aarushi Talwar and her family's domestic help in suburban Noida was being delayed because, they can rely on only 10 percent of evidence available at a crime site as 90 percent of the clues are destroyed because the police do not have the wherewithal to ensure they remain intact, M.L. Sharma, the agency's special director, said.

Mr Sharma was delivering the keynote address at the inauguration of a four-day course on "Crime scene management safety, evidence recovery, preservation and exploitation" being conducted here by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He later told reporters that the CBI probe into the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case was on the "right track". Sharma, however, refused give any time-frame as to when the agency would wrap up the murder probe and bring the guilty to book.

The investigating agency has also questioned Raj Kumar, the domestic help of Anita Durrani, a friend of the Talwars, seized his mobile phone and sent it for forensic examination. Talwar's compounder Krishna, at present in the custody of the agency, was taken to Noida on Monday morning where searches were again conducted to trace the mobile phone of the two victims besides finding the murder weapon. A servant of Talwars' neighbour was also questioned.
