MURDER MOST FOUL
Aarushi, 13, was found dead in her bedroom; Hemraj was main suspect till his body was found hours later on the roof of the Talwar home in Noida
Police had alleged that the Talwars were furious after finding their daughter in a compromising position with Hemraj, but offered no evidence to substantiate this hypotheses
WHY THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT
CBI failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the couple killed Aarushi and Hemraj Hypothesis was not conclusive in nature. CBI could not prove that no one entered the house at night There was only circumstantial evidence, and the benefit of doubt went to the accused Facts established must be entirely consistent with their guilt
CBI failed to prove that no one else entered the house on the night of murder
ROLE OF CBI
THE CBI initially wanted to close the case as an unsolved mystery; the agency had said it believed Rajesh Talwar was guilty, but did not have the evidence to prove it.
