CBI presents – No One Killed Aarushi

CBI’s closure notice in Aarushi murder case on the grounds of insufficient evidence has triggered a hot debate. Further, naming of Rajesh Talwar as the prime suspect, has added more fuel to the fire with almost all the news channels making a beeline to interview the Talwars. While the response of the Talwar couple appeared to be on the expected line as they have vehemently denied the allegation and blamed the CBI for plant false and unsubstantiated stories in the media.

It is worth noting that CBI’s official report to the court was delivered in a sealed envelope which is yet to be opened and therefore the possibility of CBI having deliberately and selectively leaked the contents of its report in the media cannot be ruled out. After the initial news of the closure report, CBI was blamed for its failure to find the guilty. CBI seems to have done a good job of diverting attention to the Talwar couple by leaking the contents of report. Such leaks by the law enforcement agencies are nothing new, very recently, the Radia Tapes were selectively leaked to the media by the agencies and till today no one knows how the Radia Tapes got leaked. As a formality, the government has constituted an enquiry into the Radia Tapes leaks.

Talwar couple has charged the CBI for condemning them for life without giving them the chance to defend themselves. If they are not guilty, it is indeed a heinous crime and there cannot be a bigger mental torture than that of living under the allegations of the murder of one’s own daughter for the entire life.

Vir Sanghvi in his blog (http://www.virsanghvi.com/) has blamed the UP police and the CBI for its incompetence for not carrying out a professional investigation and falsely assuming that since Hemraj, the servant, appeared to be missing, he must be the culprit.

While incompetence on the part of UP police and CBI is quite possible, in my opinion, it would be a bit naïve to interpret their actions entirely in this light. We must never rule out the possibility of corruption. Please visit http://www.nitharifacts.com/news.php to get a glimpse of the corruption in UP Police in the famous Nithari Murder case which incidentally also happened in Noida. Regarding the role of the CBI, in spite of the lower court sentencing both the accused to death, Mahinder Singh Pandher has recently been acquitted by the High Court while death sentence of Surender Koli, the servant, has been upheld. Pandher’s death sentence by the lower court had left the CBI red faced as they had given him a clean chit and not named him as an accused in the case. For details please visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noida_Serial_Murders. It is not too difficult to imagine that the CBI would have worked overtime to ensure acquittal of Pandher in the High Court to save them the blushes. If the prosecution itself starts working as the defense, what could be a better way to ensure an acquittal?

The above reference to Nithari Case clearly indicates and the deadly duo of Noida Police and CBI is a perfect recipe for disaster. There are many other similarities between the two cases. Similar to the Nithari Case, the CBI has used brain mapping of the accused as the main tool of investigation. Learning its lessons from the Nithari Case, CBI has not given a clear cut clean chit to the accused but is indirectly trying to achieve the same result by filing the closure report. This is just to ensure that if the Lower Court suo motto summons Rajesh Talwar as an accused and eventually sentences him, like what happened to Pandher in the Nithari Case, CBI would this time have something to fall back on as they can then say that they had already named Rajesh Talwar as the prime accused.

Under political influence coupled with monumental corruption the Police and the CBI have become totally impotent agencies. In every important case, the court has to direct the CBI investigation under its control. Let’s hope that the judiciary in our country remains largely uninfluenced by corruption as we have already lost our faith on the other two pillars of governance.
