The Supreme Court was moved on Saturday for a direction to the Central Bureau of Investigation to submit the entire status report of the investigation carried so far in the Arushi-Hemraj murder case, and to further submit the monthly reports of the progress.
Advocate Ajay K. Agrawal, in his petition filed in public interest, also urged the court to monitor the progress of the investigation as the probe conducted so far has unable to unearth the truth.
The petition said: “The twin murder of Arushi Talwar and Hemraj in Noida has become the biggest murder mystery of the country for the last one and half years and has been in the headlines of all national newspapers and electronic news channels and also it has got widespread coverage in foreign media. From the beginning, there has been witch-hunting in which the relations between the daughter and the father, and between the employer and the servant have been questioned. Subsequently, the wide coverage of the case has led into a fear psychosis.”
It pointed out that the case was transferred to the CBI in June, 2008 and strangely, in both investigations, either by the Noida police or the CBI, there was insufficient evidence resulting in not filing of any chargesheet since the last 16 months of the investigations.”
