New Delhi, Feb 11 : The special magistrate of Ghaziabad CBI court Preeti Singh relied on several circumstantial evidences to hold the Talwar couple as accused in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case.  

Preeti Singh said she was guided by the principle that there should be enough basis to take further action rather than enough ground to prove charges.Heres the chain of evidence Singh relied upon in her ruling:

1 Only family & Hemraj at home |

According to Talwars driver Umesh,maid Bharti & guards,there were only 4 people in the house on the night of May 15-16 Rajesh Talwar,Nupur,Aarushi and Hemraj

2 No sign of forced entry |

Guards at Jalvayu Vihar didnt see anyone come or go from Talwars house.Neither did neighbour Puneet Tandon

3 Role of servants ruled out |

Nupur usually locked Aarushis room from outside and only she or Aarushi (from inside) could open it.Neighbours Anita Durrani,Puneet Tandon and K N Johri said their domestic helps did not go out

4 Aarushis private parts cleaned |

Dr Sunil Dohre,who conducted the post-mortem,stated there were no signs of resistance on Aarushis body but there was white discharge near her vagina.Evidently,the private parts were tampered with

5 Hemraj dragged to terrace |

Dr Rohit Kochhar and Dr Rajeev Varshney spotted bloodstains on handle of terrace door.They told Talwar and cops about it,but they didnt react.Visitor Sanjay Chauhan said from bloodstains on the stairs it seemed an injured person had been dragged up.Talwar went up the stairs and came down,only to vanish inside

6 Internet router switched on/off |

Telecom dept official Deepak Kanda said the Talwars router was repeatedly switched on and off between 12.08am and 3.43am

7 Terrace door locked |

Domestic helps Umesh,Kalpana and Vimla and neighbour Puneet Tandon vouched for the fact that the terrace door had never been locked earlier

8 Surgically trained killers |

Witness Naresh Raj said Hemrajs cut mark was from one side to another.It was done with a sharp weapon but it couldnt have been a khukri

9 V-shape wound from golf stick |

Umesh said he kept 2 golf sticks in Hemrajs room 5 months before the murders.Witness Ajay Chaddha said one stick was later found from Talwars loft.Talwars werent clear how it went missing.Dr Dohre stated the V-shaped wounds on both bodies could have come from a golf stick
