Aarushi’s mobile found, handed over to CBI: Delhi Police


New Delhi : The cellphone of slain teenager Aarushi Talwar, missing for over a year since her mysterious killing in her parents’ Noida flat, has been found by Delhi Police and handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is probing the murder, police said Monday.

“Aarushi’s cellphone was recovered by Delhi Police’s Crime Branch and handed over to the CBI,” Delhi Police spokesman Rajan Bhagat said.

He, however, did not say how and when the missing piece of evidence was found.

According to police sources, the missing mobile was recovered from Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr town.

Aarushi was found murdered in her parents’ Jalvayu Vihar apartment in Noida May 16 2008. The family’s domestic help Hemraj, who was missing and was initially suspected for her killing, was found murdered a day later on the terrace of the house.

The sensational case has remained an unsolved riddle.

All those who were picked up for interrogation in the initial weeks of the murder – Aarushi’s dentist-father Rajesh Talwar, his medical assistant Krishna and two other neighbourhood domestic helps Raj Kumar and Vijay Mandal – have been freed after a period of detention while the CBI still continues to hunt for material evidence.

Despite an intense search, the agency had not been able to locate the mobiles of Arushi and Hemraj and the weapon used to slit the two victims’ throats.
