A day after Dr Rajesh Talwar came out of jail, CBI Director Vijay Shankar spoke exclusively to NDTV on various issues relating to the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case, including the roles of the UP Police and the media and how he is confident that the killers are caught.
He said, ‘’I am hundred per cent confident that the case is closed and the killers have been caught.’’ He also said that the role of Uttar Pradesh Police is being investigated. The CBI Director also said, ‘’The inconsistencies in the case are entirely because of media speculation and it has to set new benchmarks for itself.’’
However, the Uttar Pradesh government has said that it will not initiate any action against its officers until a chargesheet was filed and the court gives its final verdict in the Noida double murder case.
‘’We will initiate strict action against officers involved in the probe only after CBI file its chargesheet and the court gives its final verdict. The CBI is still investigating the case,’’ Principal Secretary Home Kunwar Fateh Bahadur told reporters. He said the state police probed the matter for only two weeks and the inquiry was later handed over to CBI on request of Aarushi’s family members. The CBI on Sunday said it would look into the allegation that Noida police has destroyed evidence while probing the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case.
Claiming that the country’s premier probe agency has apprehended the real culprits in the case, its Director Vijay Shankar said, “I say this with confidence that the CBI has opened up this blind case. We know who were the killers, we also have a lot of work to do ahead. Investigation is carrying on”. (with inputs from PTI)
