Ghaziabad, 30 September
Dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, accused of killing their teenaged daughter Aarushi Talwar and domestic help Hemraj, today submitted a list of 13 more witnesses, including seven CBI officials, to a special court.
"These 13 people were made prosecution witnesses by the CBI, but were never produced in court for their statements," said Talwars’ counsel Manoj Sisodia. Talwars in their petition alleged that the prosecution had deliberately dropped some witnesses whose statements and potential testimonies were in favour of the case of the accused.
The couple also sought a direction to the CBI to place on record the disclosure statement made by their compounder Krishna and domestic helps Vijay Mandal and Rajkumar. So far seven defence witnesses have been examined in the trial court.
The new list of 13 more witnesses includes two CBI sub-inspectors Yatish Chandra Sharma and Pramod Kumar Tanwar, four CBI inspectors HS Sachan, Mukesh Sharma, Pankaj Bansal and Naresh Indora and one CBI deputy SP RS Kureel.
