CBI is horrified
Author: Anshuman G Dutta Date: 02 Jun 2008

The agency has raised serious questions over the way investigations and crucial evidence was handled by the Noida police in arushi case


The Central Bureau of Investigation and forensic experts are miffed over the shoddy investigation and treatment of evidences in the Arushi Talwar murder case by the Noida police and the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF).

"The crime scene was left open to intrusion by the neighbours, relatives and media persons.

It's a complete mess and the evidence collected in such condition cannot be relied on. Even the investigations are shoddy," said a senior CBI officer.

Cops' negligence shocks CBI

The central investigating agency took over the probe into the case after the Noida police failed to make any significant headway into the double murder case.

The cops had arrested Arushi's dentist father Dr Rajesh Talwar, claiming him to be the prime accused in the case. However, they failed to get anything out of interrogating him and the dentist is back in judicial custody in Dasna Jail.

According to CBI sources, forensic experts from the AIIMS who reached the spot on Sunday were flabbergasted at the first sight of the crime scene.

A team of 25 CBI officials reached Sector 25 Noida at around 10 am and spanned in  and around the L-32 house of the Talwars. The agency searched the premises, questioned Arushi's mother Nupur Talwar, and created a map of the house.

"Nupur Talwar is the most important link in the case and she has hardly been questioned by the UP police. We need a map of the house to re-create the crime scene," said the officer.

Senior CBI officials highlighted the discrepancies in the post-mortem report of both Arushi and servant Hemraj and obvious blunders like free access to every one to the crime scene and oversight in collection of crucial evidence.

An officer also highlighted the fact that CFSL Agra has already questioned the authenticity of the post-mortem report, which hardly gave any answers.

"The report should have provided some leads to re-create the crime scene like who was killed first, Arushi or Hemraj, and the time of their deaths."

Meanwhile, sources indicated that the CBI would like to base the chargesheet on forensic evidence and the post-mortem report of the victims but there is little hope left for it to move in the right direction after the initial blunders by the UP police.

Senior officials also said that the Noida cops who were involved in the case would be questioned by the CBI to collect more leads and fill the missing details. "It is important to find out where actually the whole case got derailed," said an officer.

Forensic experts lifted finger prints from the spot but rains in last couple of days made it a futile exercise to look for leads on the roof, as the place had already been visited by hundreds of neighbours, onlookers and journalists.

Trashing the Noida police investigations, the CBI registered a case against Dr Rajesh Talwar and one unknown person. The Noida police have maintained that Dr Talwar murdered both Arushi and Hemraj with a hammer and a surgical blade.

The agency did not buy the Noida police argument and prime facie registered a case against two persons, junking the entire investigation and the case of the Noida police.

Pati, Patni aur who?
Author: MiD DAY Correspondent Date: 02 Jun 2008


The CBI has filed a case against Dr Rajesh Talwar and one unidentified person for the murder of Arushi and servant Hemraj.

Experts feel that the dentist who is an asthma patient could not have murdered the two all on his own. Besides, three glasses of liquor were found in Hemraj's room, indicating that two others were there with him on the night he was murdered.

His mattress had depression at three separate places, showing that three persons sat on it.
Even the Noida police had said that more arrests were likely in the case, asserting that they had not given Nupur Talwar a clean chit. But the big question is who helped Talwar in brutally killing the two?

The possible suspects are:

Nupur Talwar


Arushi was murdered inside her 2000 sq ft house. The police say it was almost impossible for Nupur Talwar not to have heard anything at the time when her daughter was being murdered.

They argue that Nupur could not have remained oblivious to the two murders committed within a short distance of her bedroom. Nupur might be trying to conceal the truth behind the motive of the killings.

The police are yet to find any evidence, apart from circumstantial evidence, against Nupur. Nupur said that she would not have sat quietly on that fateful night knowing that her daughter was being  murdered in another room.


Vikas

Vikas has been accused of destruction of evidence. A blood soaked mattress from Arushi's room was taken to the terrace by Umesh, driver of the Talwars.

During an interview to a TV channel Umesh said that he was ordered to take the mattress to the terrace by Vikas which was lying unattended for more than 24 hours after Arushi was murdered.

The blood stained mattress could have been of great help to the forensic team and the police. So why did Vikas instruct the driver to take the mattress to the terrace?

There is no motive that one can ascribe to his involvement in the murder. The police claimed to have interrogated him. But now he is also untraceable.


Anita Durani

Though she may not be directly involved in the murder itself, but Anita's name has cropped up quite prominently. The police have already concluded that it was the extra-marital affair between Anita and Arushi's dad Rajesh that led to the murder of the teen.

However,  she categorically rejected such claims. The police also claim that she was in constant touch with Rajesh in the days leading to the murder. They say that Rajesh was upset as Arushi knew about her father's affair.

Alleging a frame up by the police, Anita says that she was not even once interrogated or detained by the police.

UP Police treated Rajesh Talwar very badly: Lawyer

2 Jun 2008, 1013 hrs IST,PTI

  

NOIDA: The lawyer of Rajesh Talwar, accused of murdering his daughter Aarushi and the family's domestic help Hemraj, has alleged that the dentist was treated "very badly" by the Noida police.

 

Pinaki Mishra, the lawyer, said Talwar's family met Rajesh on Sunday after about seven to eight days and "he is in a very bad shape".

 

Rajesh Talwar was arrested by the Noida police a week after the murder of his 14-year-old daughter and domestic servant.

 

"They (police) have made him sit out for 48 hours without being allowed to sleep. He has been subjected to intense emotional and psychological trauma and terror," Mishra said.

 

He also expressed hope that CBI would take corrective steps immediately and shift him to a hospital.

 

Meanwhile, the CBI, which took charge of the Noida double murder case on Sunday from the Uttar Pradesh Police, is likely to file an application in the court on Monday seeking custody of accused Rajesh Talwar.

 

The CBI team had on Sunday registered a first information report in the matter.

Law & order must be separated from probe.

2 Jun 2008, 0032 hrs IST,Dhananjay Mahapatra,TNN

  

Chief minister Mayawati's decision to hand over the Noida double murder case to CBI must have come as a huge relief to the UP police, which for the last 15 days had been working more on scripting new theories than making any headway in the probe.

 

The last of the attempts by UP police to support its "honour killing" theory was to leak excerpts of Aarushi's e-mails to her parents. In these e-mails, she appears to be confessing to something she did, which was apparently not to the liking of her parents and for which she was seeking forgiveness.

 

The excerpts fitted in perfectly with the police's earlier "objectionable but not compromising" aspersion on her character. More damagingly, it led to public conjecture that something was so gravely wrong with her deed that she preferred an e-mail rather than telling it to her parents.

 

By clinging to the apologetic e-mail to fan the "we told you so" canard about the girl, the police has laid bare its insensitivity and lack of understanding about the psychology of a teenager.

 

Between 1882-1885, when Mohandas K Gandhi was of Aarushi's age, he had written a somewhat identical letter to his father making a clean breast of how he sold off a piece of his brother's solid gold armlet to clear a debt.

 

A teenaged Mohandas had indulged in eating meat, a sacrilege in the Gandhi family. He had stolen money from servants to meet the expenses of his inquisitive smoking needs.

 

He had also visited a prostitute, got tongue-tied and frigid before her, only to be thrown out with an avalanche of abuses. The persistent lying to parents to cover up all these, which even in today's society are considered sins, gave intense moral pangs to Mohandas. Clearing a debt by selling a piece of armlet made the guilt unbearable for him. Despite living under the same roof, he decided to write a letter to father Kaba Gandhi. There was no e-mail, so he personally handed it over.

 

"I was trembling as I handed the confession to may father," Gandhi wrote in his autobiography 'My Experiments With Truth'.

 

"He read it through, and pearl-drops trickled down his cheeks, wetting the paper. For a moment, he closed his eyes in thought and then tore it up." Mohandas too cried, vowed never to repeat it and stayed true to his promise throughout his life.

 

No one expects the cops to read Gandhi. But they are surely expected to consult psychologists to understand the guilt pangs of a teenager and legal experts before brazenly violating the right to privacy of a dead girl by making public details of e-mails.

 

It could have submitted the e-mails to court in sealed cover if these were any evidence linked to the crime. It is for this reason that one needs to stress over and over again on the Supreme Court judgment in Prakash Singh's case directing separation of investigation and law and order duties, each a specialist police job.

 

In this 2006 judgment, the SC had quoted a letter written by the Union home minister on April 3, 1997, to all state governments imploring them to understand the "great national importance" in insulating the police force from "growing tendency of partisan or political interference in the discharge of its lawful functions of prevention and control of crime including investigation of cases and maintenance of public order". Almost all police reform commissions as well as the Law Commission had, in the past, suggested separation of investigation and law and order wings of police.

 

The latest committee, headed by former attorney general Soli J Sorabjee, in its report suggested establishment of an autonomous Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) in each state. It is imperative in crime investigation, especially homicide cases, that the police has sufficient forensic skills to lift all possible evidence from the crime scene at the earliest before TV crew and others run over the place.

 

A TOI reader and student in forensic science wrote, "Why is the police not taking help of forensic scientists to help collect vital evidence in every crime? Why should these scientists be confined to the laboratories alone? Why do the the police not discuss with forensic psychologists to understand the motive behind the crime, rather than float theories?" These are certainly relevant questions for the states as well as the Centre to consider and proceed in a direction of equipping the police force to investigate a crime methodically and scientifically. 

__________

Wonder what the late Aarushi would have to say were she able to read everything that is being written since her passing. The fallout after her untimely, painful and cruel death will hopefully inspire some lawmakers to introduce new legislation that will take away the "abusive and absolute dictatorial power" the police seem to enjoy all over India.

 

I hope that any new legislation also clearly addresses what is "compromising and objectionable" with regard to the behavior of the police. Currently the Indian Police think that they are above the law, and exempt from displaying any decency towards anyone.

India tops world murder count

2 Jun 2008, 0050 hrs IST,TNN

  

NEW DELHI: India has earned the dubious distinction of being the country where maximum number of murders takes place in the world, three times more than its neighbour Pakistan and double the figures in United States.

 

There were more than 50 lakh incidents of crime reported in 2007-08 which included murder, rape and drug offences, a government report said. There were 32,719 incidents of murder recorded in India, whereas there were 16,692 in the US and 9,631 in Pakistan, the report compiled by National Crime Records Bureau and released by the Union Home Ministry, said.

 

India was followed by South Africa which registered 30,960 incidents of murders. Austria had recorded just 148 murders, whereas Israel registered 177 such incidents.

 

However, the rate (per lakh population) of murder and other crimes in India was much less compared to other countries. The murder and rape rate in India is three and four (per lakh population) respectively whereas South Africa recorded occurrence rates in the two categories as 65.27 and 115.8 respectively.

 

"Most of the murders take place due to passion, sudden provocation, crime related and family disputes,'' Delhi police spokesman ACP Rajan Bhagat said. Delhi has recorded an increase of 1.08% in murders in 2007 compared to 2006.

 

The number of rape cases was maximum in the US which recorded 93,934 such assaults followed by South Africa 54,926 and India 18,359.

 

The data was compiled in 22 countries which included Australia, Argentina, Austria, Bulgaria, Japan, Canada, England and Wales, Germany, Malaysia, New Zealand, Thailand and Sri Lanka besides others. In India, there were 44,159 incidents of sexual offence, 2,70,861 cases of serious assault and 22,814 robbery and violent theft-related incidents, the report said.

 

The maximum number of robbery related cases were reported in Japan which had registered 17,25,072 such counts.

 

The US topped the crime list with 2,31,13,708 total crime related incidents, whereas India registered overall 50,26,337 criminal cases.

That headline is soooo misleading, am not surprised though because most of English media in India indulge in this most of the times...lead by TOI.

First of all, India's population is almost 4 times that of US and 7 times that of Pakistan. Correct way to measure crimes is by measuring it against the population of respective nations.

I just made this quick table to put things in correct perspective....

Country Est Population (in Lakh) Murder Cases Murder Cases / Lakh Pop Rape Cases Rape Cases / Lakh Pop
India 11300 32719 2.90 18359 1.62
US 3042 16692 5.49 93934 30.88
South Africa 480 30960 64.50 54926 114.43
Pakistan 1677 9631 5.74    

India is safer than US. Just look at the rape cases/pop for US and India. 

Yes, we can and must do a lot better on law and order front but no need to do self bashing, the kind of English media indulges in frequently.

CBI examines Talwar house, questions Anita Durrani

Noida, June 02, 2008

First Published: 20:09 IST(2/6/2008)

  

A five-member Central Bureau of Investigation team on Monday minutely inspected the home of the Talwars, including the terrace, for clues to the murder of teenaged Aarushi Talwar and their domestic help more than a fortnight ago.

 

The CBI team, which also brought along a worker equipped with a stone cutter, cut away a block of the terrace wall that had the imprint of a blood stained palm. A forensic expert inspected the terrace, the three bedrooms, the staircase and the doors of the flat.

 

The CBI team reached the Jal Vayu Vihar home of the Talwars at 1 pm and spent three hours poring over the place, collecting samples of blood and other tell-tale evidences. 

 

A city court on Monday sent Rajesh Talwar, father of Aarushi, to CBI custody for a day. The CBI, which on Sunday took over the probe into the May 16 Noida double murders, sought custody of Aarushi's dentist father for seven days, but the court in Noida agreed to only one day, and specified that Talwar's lawyer must be present during his interrogation.

 

Another CBI team, comprising four members, inspected Anita Durrani's residence at Noida. The team inspected her house minutely and questioned Anita, a family friend of Rajesh Talwar. Nothing was known of the questioning of Anita, with whom Rajesh Talwar was alleged to have a relationship.

 

The Chief Judicial Magistrate of Noida court, AK Singh, while granting a day's custody to the CBI, directed the investigation agency to present Talwar before the court at or before 4 pm on Tuesday.

 

Meanwhile, Talwar's lawyer requested the court to grant him bail. The prosecution said it could not be considered as the court had granted a day's custody to the CBI.

 

The Noida police had accused Talwar of murdering Aarushi and the family's domestic help Hemraj in a double murder that has shocked the nation. The body of 14-year-old Aarushi was found on May 16, with her throat slit. The police initially suspected Hemraj to be the murderer, but his body was found a day later on the terrace of the house, killed in the same manner.

 

The case has been transferred to the CBI following widespread condemnation of of the way Utar Pradesh police handled the investigations initially.

60% urban Indians feel unsafe at home

New Delhi, June 01, 2008

First Published: 00:20 IST(1/6/2008)

Last Updated: 11:26 IST(1/6/2008)  

 

Days after the Aarushi Talwar and Neeraj Grover murders (the chief suspect in the Aarushi case is the father, while a 'close' woman friend and her alleged boyfriend killed Neeraj), a shocking new verdict has been delivered: people in our cities feel that the spectre of crime has moved closer home.

 

Three out of five feel "more unsafe and threatened" after the recent spate of murders in our cities, while 74% blame urban lifestyles for urban crime. "We shouldn't separate ourselves from the Grovers and Talwars. This could happen to us," says Ameeta Mulla Wattal, principal, Springdales School, Pusa Road.

 

Family members and friends could well be perpetrators, say two out of every five respondents (41%) surveyed. Two-thirds of the respondents say they do not trust the country's police, and feel they are not competent enough to track down perpetrators. More than half the respondents (54 per cent) say lack of communication and relationships breaking down — at home, at the workplace and among friends — is leading to more "urban lifestyle-driven" crimes.

 

"There are intense rivalries, frustrations and anger, there are no mechanisms in society to mollify those emotions and there are no personal restraints," points out sociologist Imtiaz Ahmed.

 

Worryingly, the state of affairs seems to be taking a toll on urban mindsets: 53% respondents say they will "take revenge" on their partners if they (the partners) betrayed them.
