Po­lice had made ‘dog's break­fast’ of Aarushi case: Omar Abdullah

The Free Press Journal - - NATION -

For­mer Jammu and Kash­mir chief min­is­ter Omar Abdullah said on Thurs­day the po­lice made a "to­tal dog's break­fast" of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion in the Aarushi mur­der case.

The Al­la­habad High Court on Thurs­day ac­quit­ted Ra­jesh and Nupur Tal­war in the mur­der of their teenage daugh­ter Aarushi and their do­mes­tic help Hem­raj in 2008, say­ing they could not be held guilty on the ba­sis of the ev­i­dence on record.

In a se­ries of tweets, Abdullah wrote, “Don't know who killed #Arushi & will prob­a­bly never know but what I do know is the po­lice made a to­tal dogs break­fast of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion (sic),” sug­gest­ing that the probe was a com­plete mess. "The law pre­sumes in­no­cence un­til guilt is es­tab­lished beyond rea­son­able doubt. In­no­cent till proven guilty is bedrock of crim­i­nal law," he said in an­other tweet.

Aarushi was found dead in­side her room in the Tal­wars' Noida res­i­dence with her throat slit in May 2008.

The nee­dle of sus­pi­cion ini­tially moved to­wards 45year-old Hem­raj, who had gone miss­ing, but his body was re­cov­ered from the ter­race of the house two days later.
