Were Rajesh and Nupur Talwar really at home  on 15/16 May 2008 night, between 12.08am     (I.e.till the Internet of their desk computer in Aarushi’s bedroom is said to have showed activity) and 3.45am (when the router,which was put on by Nupur at 11.15 pm for Rajesh         was found to have been put off),that is, on      the night when the murder of Aarushi and their domestic servant Hemraj Badjate took place? What is the Proof? If the Colony watchman said that he cannot vouch that nobody had entered their building that night, as the night watchmen have to be mobile, then he also cannot be knowing with certainty that Nobody – including the Talwars – left the building to go out after midnight and returned in the early hours of 16 May’08 !                                                                       This is an important point, because if only it could be proved that the couple HAD REALLY gone out for whatever reason, after midnight upto 3.30am on that night of May 2008, leaving Aarushi to the care of Hemraj(just as Nupur had done on the previous afternoon when she went to her clinic), though they deny it, and the investigators also are said to have verified it, many things would become clear by themselves, including the noninvolvement of the Talwars in the double murder! It might have been proved that the Talwars had not gone that night to the hotel where 12 rooms were said to have been booked in their name  as one rumour had spread during the first few days after the murder, but which was disproved by the investigating authorities. However, the possibility remains that they might have gone somewhere else, if not to that hotel; perhaps to Mayur Vihar to meet Dr.RKSharma, Forensic expert and one of the witnesses in their defense in the CBI Court, who was running his private clinic in Mayur Vihar (and whose father was running a shop in electronic gadgets including Mobile phones, and to whom Rajesh had often given Aarushi’s mobile phone for prepaid charging), in relation to the information stored in Aarushi’s cellphone, regarding the calls made by her, and to her by her friends or whomsoever, considering that her cellphone, that had fallen silent since 9.10pm on 15th May 2008 night, and is said to have been in Nupur ‘s custody, was found to have become active at 12.35am the same night, at some place in Mayur Vihar, Delhi, which is just 5 minutes distance by car from Noida. They might have gone to meet Dr.Sharma in the context of the Mysterious and Scary Message received by Aarushi the previous evening, viz.”The Next Day Will Be Vital For You”! (This may be the reason why Aarushi who was otherwise a petted child treated by her parents as a princess,was beaten that night as told by Nupur’s brother to the UP Police,and her cellphone taken in their custody, as she was found to be communicating with persons of shady and dangerous character).Dr. Sharma      had also been alleged by  CBI to have helped actively in    the disposal of Aarushi’s mobile locally (and probably that of Hemraj too, through his father’s sister who is in Punjab).Aarushi’s cellphone was later traced to have been found in a nearby park by a maid servant Kusum working in that area,(who had worked earlier at the Talwars’ place too) with its SIM/Memory Card and entries removed, and was retrieved a year after the murders, from the woman’s brother living in Bulandshahar, by First team of CBI.           It may be that Dr. Sharma may have taken a promise from the Talwars not to reveal to the Police or the CBI that they had gone to meet him in connection with Aarushi’s  Mobile phone, which is why they are denying having gone out that night! (On the other hand, Rajkumar,servant of the Durranis viz. Talwars’ business partners, is said to have confessed under Narco of having taken Aarushi’s mobile phone after killing her and sold it to someone thereafter.)                                                                                       As to Hemraj’s phone though,it is more likely that it may have been stolen by one of his friends, i.e. either Krishna or Vijay Mandal, staying in the same Apartment building,  from the terrace where his body was lying, after his murder(and then sold to someone in Punjab),  rather than the Talwars having given it to Dr.RKSharma along with Aarushi’s phone.For it was said to have responded for a second to Nupur’s phone call on his number at 6.01am on the morning of the murder, from some place in the vicinity of Jalvayu Vihar and then cut off abruptly, though Hemraj was supposedly dead and lying on the Talwars’ terrace at that time as discovered by UP Police next day.                                                                          Thus, the four or five persons said to have been present in the house at that time on the night of the murders, might as well have been Aarushi, Hemraj, his friend Krishna Thadarai (who lived at the opposite corner of the same building in which Talwars’ flat is located), and Vijay Mandal,living in Talwars’neighbourhood, as also Rajkumar perhaps (Or Vijay Mandal’s employer), rather than Rajesh and Nupur Talwar with Aarushi – Hemraj!Still, the Ultimate question remains,viz. who is the tall man with shoe size of 8/9 who is supposed to have been in Aarushi’s room at the time of her murder?None of the three servant suspects and friends of Hemraj, mentioned above seem to be tall, going by the police photographs published after the murders at the time of their arrest, or at least not taller than Rajesh Talwar whose shoe size is6. Hemraj was said to be average built.It is not known how tall was Tandon, Talwars’ neighbor.Aarushi’s boyfriend Anmol Agarwal, who was a year senior to her in school, too seems to be tall with a lanky, strong build and long limbs as seen from his Facebook Profile photo on a beach. His birthdate is given as July 28, 1990, so he was not so young as 14-15 years old as the Noida Police said but just 2 months short of 18 years on 15/16 May, 2008, that is, at the time of the murder  of Aarushi and Hemraj,and so quite capable physically of a crime, whether or not he did it. Aarushi’s previous boyfriend and classmate Sankalp Arora aka Sanky was even older(19)and alleged to have been involved in the similar Shobhit Murder case of May 2011, though it was declared later by the police that a local goon was arrested in relation to that crime. Both had a motive for the murder, for Sanky had already been ditched by Aarushi for Anmol, but was trying to resume their friendship, while Anmol’s relationship with her had also become shaky, as she was planning to break-up with him too! The Colony Watchmen may not have noticed them either!                                                        All said and done, the puzzling question remains, what exact confession Rajesh Talwar is said to have made to the UP police that led to his arrest on 23May 2008 on being confronted by the Police with the facts stated by Anmol Agarwal to them during their 10-hour long interrogation of the latter on 22May2008, and why Anmol Agarwal’s name or the long record of cellphone calls with Aarushi are totally missing from the text of the Final Judgement of the CBI Special Court, especially when they have not hesitated to include the name and cellphone call record of her ex-boyfriend Sankalp Arora in the Judgement Text.                  I mean,Why the Special exemption to Anmol Agarwal, the last outsider to have contacted her repeatedly till the last hour of her life? “Tu Bhi Chup, Main/Hum Bhi Chup” politics of defense against the’Man Who Knew Too Much’                                       ,namely,the Friend In Whom Aarushi confided the Most?Notwithstanding these doubts about the other persons linked with Aarushi, it is still a dubious point why the Talwars should remove the important Outer grill gate         of their flat before the process of investigation was over!

  1. The phone calls record and internet activities of Rajesh, seems like they were present on that gory night at least till 23.15 pm. Only Nupur’s mobile was switched off in early evening hrs..
    According to exboyfriend statement, he called and nobody picked up.
    Why was AArushi’s mobile also switched off earlier than it used to be.. Also strange.

    • The Talwars were in the house till 11.57 pm (23.57) on 15May 2008 night, when Rajesh sent the last email for the night from the desk computer in Aarushi’s room, after which he spoke to someone from US on his landline phone around the same time. Still, when Aarushi’s exboyfriend Anmol Agarwal phoned on their landline around midnight, as Aarushi’s phone had fallen silent from an early hour, I.e. 9.10 pm, no one lifted the phone though it was in the Talwars’ bedroom. The next time anything was heard about them was at 6.00 am the following morning, when the maid Bharati came and rang the doorbell.
      It is not understood why Nupur switched off her cellphone from 7.30 pm on the previous evening.Very strange indeed!

      • Accordind to some media reports Investigators found out, mobile calls record of exboyfriend shows he called around 23.30 on the landline. But Rajesh Talwar couldn’t remember of any call at this time. So what now…
        Why the police crime branch didn’t try to trace the cellphones of exboxfriends of Aarushi for example between 22:00 15th and 1:00 am of the 16th.
        It would also help the investigators, if Mme Talwar could answer some simple question like, the switching off the cellphones earlier, picking up Aarushi from school or why Rajesh cancelled his thursday evening meeting with his friends. But from these people Usha Ji, can get only senseless answers..

      • The Noida Police and CBI ‘HAVE’ investigated into the call records of All of Aarushi’s boyfriends, especially of her latest one, Anmol Agarwal, with whom there was exchange of 688 calls in the last 45 days. It was also noted that the same boy phoned on her Mobile at 21.10 hours on 15th May night, after which the phone was switched off throughout, till she was alive; for as per Anmol’s statement, he had sent her an SMS on her Mobile at12.30am
        (00. 30 hrs.) on 15/16th night, which was not received. It is also mentioned by them that he had called her on the Talwars’ landline phone at 23.30 hrs., as her cellphone was not responding since his last call at 21.10 h. and spoke to her for 34 seconds.Thereafter too, he rang her on the landline at Midnight, but no one lifted the phone this time. It may be that all of them, including Aarushi, had got fed up of his repeated calls, and Aarushi had started withdrawing from their friendship; hence they kept her mobile switched off, as also stopped picking up their landline phone for him. For they may have suspected that the ‘Foreboding Message’, to Aarushi that “The next day will be vital for you”, might have been sent by him out of spite, to threaten her as she was on the way to breaking their friendship. You too had discovered from his profile that he was also not a very simple boy, in that he had many horror provoking collections of pictures and CDs/DVDs!
        Nupur’s picking her from school personally that afternoon and Rajesh’s cancelling his weekly meeting on that Thursday, 15th May, with his friend Dr.Rohit may also be for the same reason. However, it is not understood why Nupur Talwar
        kept her own cellphone switched off from 7.30pm on 15th evening,
        that is, long before Aarushi’s!

  2. This is a part of Vijay Mandal Narco ( Avirook Sen book)
    He said he had seen Aarushi moving around in front of his house many a times when she was to return from school and also had seen Dr Talwar when he was to return from the hospital in the afternoon during lunch hours . . . He said he was not that close with Hemraj . . . He said whenever he was to meet Hemraj they were to pass gestures and had formal talks with him . . . He said he would meet Krishna at dhobi’s shop. He said he was never called as Shambhu and were to call him by the name of Vijay . . .

    He said on the day of the incident Hemraj had called him to come and meet around 12 o’clock in the midnight. He said whenever he was to go their house to meet Hemraj they would sit and discuss on the stairs. He said he was in the habit of washing clothes in the night and on the night of the incident when he was washing around 10-10.15 his friend had come to meet him to his house . . . before meeting Hemraj.
    Usha ji: Had the investigators ever interrogated this friend of Vijay Mandal who came at 10.15 pm..Who was this friend of Vijay Mandal, whom the security guard have not noticed coming and going out.
    Why his friend came to meet him..Who is this mysterious friend of Vijay Mandal?
    His habit of washing clothes late night, is it possible he was the one who threw the bedsheet on the drying line.

    • Quite possible. However, on the night of the murder, you say ‘he’ was washing clothes at 10.00/10.15pm, when ‘his’ friend came to meet him,(Who was ‘he’? Mandal/Hemraj?) but Aarushi and Hemraj
      were killed presumably after 12.00 midnight, so how would the bedsheet be put on the grill after that? Was Hemraj killed by Vijay Mandal’s friend when Hemraj had called Vijay Mandal to meet him after 12.00, and got dragged up to the terrace by Mandal’s friend?

      • This is also confusing. Vijay Mandal said in Narco, he was not so closed to Hemraj, then why Hemraj invited him to come at 12;00. Hemraj not having dinner, means he was interrupted as he was about to take his dinner. Is it possible that the friend of Mandal after their meeting, he knocked at Hemraj’s door, had a drink in his room and on the pretext of a small talk ask him to come on the terrace. Perhaps this ‘friend’ visited Mandal regularly and had seen Aarushi.
        Ok, narco is not such a reliable source to extract the truth. But Mandal mentioned exactly the time, he has a visit from his friend around 10.15, a time where Hemraj was serving himself may be..

  3. I think Hemraj was murdered much earlier, around 23.30. Assailant came down, entered the flat with Hemraj’s key, then attacked Aarushi.
    Also the bloodstains in front of neighbour’s door… the strange smell in the garage where he was sleeping.
    It’s definitely clear, because of the glasses with Liquor etc, Hemraj had visitors in his room.
    As the glasses were found on the floor, mean it was on the 15th..Hemraj couldn’t even clean up the mess, as he was already murdered on the terrace.

    • May be that Hemraj was murdered at 11.30 pm on 15May night itself. He had called Vijay Mandal to meet him at around 12.00 (midnight, or perhaps at 11.45pm, when Nalini Singh, the veteran Journalist claimed that Hemraj’s friends and Vijay Mandal were in his room, drinking liquor and listening to Nepali songs on the TV),
      so I thought he died after 00.00 hrs, but he might have died earlier between 11.45pm and 12.00/00.15 hrs on 15/16 May 08.Mandal says he is not known as Shambhu, but his mysterious friend who came to meet him at 10.15pm, may have been the Shambhu. He might have called Hemraj to the terrace at 12.00 am.
      By the way, Rajesh Talwar is said to have gone out of his flat between 10.30-11.00/11.15pm, not known where!

  4. Just read,you mentioned ‘strong build and long limbs as seen from his Facebook Profile photo on a beach. Interesting clue. This mean ex boyfriend could be having shoesize 8/9.
    Was he also residing near Mayur Vihar where Aarushi’s mobile was last traced at 0035 on the 16th?
    He was also the last person( outsider) who called her. In Avirook’s book, Aarushi name was connected to several boys. Anmol was the last one.
    In the book, Aarushi cancelled a meeting the next day with her classmates, to avoid Sankalp., where she wrote ‘i will not be physically present with you, but mentally. But why did she try to avoid Sankalp, as at this time she was in a break-up with Anmol. Were these boys so intensely molesting her, that she even cancelled her meeting with her friends….

    • Yes, both these boys were following her intensely since some days.
      Sankalp Arora, aka Sanky,whom she had ditched already, had made 13 attempts to contact her on her Mobile from his father ‘s phone on 13th night of May 2008, to which she had not given any response by calling back. Still, he phoned her on 15th afternoon, and this time, she spoke to him at 4.45 pm, and perhaps around 9.00 pm too. He said she seemed normal then, and they spoke about general things, viz. school.(He also told the police that there didn’t seem to be any servant problem.)
      Anmol Agarwal, her latest boyfriend, with whom too, she had commucated by cellphone 688 times in the last 45 days,and with whom she was in the process of breaking up (according to her aunt), also phoned her at 9.10 pm on 15th May night, after which it fell silent till it showed activity at 12.35am from some place in Mayur Vihar, which is just 5 minutes drive from Noida.
      Anmol was staying there, and Sankalp stayed at Patpargunj, which is also close by.Dr.RK Sharma, a friend and Defense Witness No.4 of the Talwars,whose father was running an electronic shop, also ran his clinic at Mayur Vihar.
      It is said, Aarushi was trying to avoid Sanky,but it is not understood why the CBI Court has only mentioned his call details, which were made from his father’s phone, probably because she had not responded to his calls two days earlier; while there is absolutely no mention of Anmol or his numerous calls and who had given a statement to the Police against Aarushi ‘s father on 22 May2008, in the CBI court Judgement Text!

      • The fact that Aarushi cancelled the meeting with her friend, Nupur picking her up from school etc.. seeems she too was threatened like Hemraj. This was the reason both mobiles got missing after the murders. In some early reports, just a day after the twin murder one crime branch officer stated, it looked like a passion killing. The strange horrific collections of videos on murder, murder victims, murder weapon fit again in this theory of passion killing.
        Then how come Hemraj’s phone was traced in the zone covering Nithary and Talwars flat..?
        This is clear, killer gave the same night, Hemraj’s mobile to someone may be a servant who lived in this zone and Aarushi’s one was taken to Mayur Vihar. Aarushi’s mobile could easily help to identify the killer. This is the reason, all datas from mobile was directly deleted at 00:35 on the 16th, right after the murder.At this time, the mobile was switched on and off.
        All this proves, killer lived near Mayur Vihar.

      • That is what I too suspect – must be one of her boyfriends living in
        Mayur Vihar, either Anmol Agarwal who has now gone to Moradabad, or Sankalp Arora was staying in Patpargunj, which is close to Mayur Vihar.

  5. It’s possible, that Mandal had seen assailant dragging Hemraj on the terrace , while he was hanging clothes . He gave him the bedsheet to hide the scene. Perhaps he was given a good sum to keep his mouth shut. Also possible, killer gave Mandal Hemraj’s mobile
    This mysterious friend whom Mandal’s mentioned in Narco, can be one of the boyfriend/Killer.
    Why no attempt was made to find this friend of Mandal….

  6. If Talwars, Servents, Krishna, Rajkumar and Vijay were not guilty then this could be the case.

    1) On 15 May 2008, Hemraj conspired with his criminal associate who called him from Nitari PCO. ( Reference – “The last call made to Hemraj during his lifetime was at 8:27 pm, and it lasted for 6 minutes. The call had been made from a PCO in Sector 31; the PCO was located a kilometer away from the Talwars’ apartment. The investigators were unable to determine who made this call.” )

    2) Hemraj and Criminal had planned earlier. The Idea was to put sedatives on the food, that Talwars and Arushi Consumed that night. ( Reference – Unlike Aarushi’s body, which had undigested food in the stomach, Hemraj had just 25 ml of liquid in his stomach, indicating that he did not have dinner. This evidence was also supported by the fact that his dinner was found untouched in the kitchen on the morning of 16 May.)

    3) Talwars went unconscious by midnight. (Reference – “Around midnight, Aarushi’s friend Anmol tried calling Aarushi on her mobile and then on the family’s landline, but there was no response.”)

    4) Aarushi was conscious (“Undigested Food”).

    5) Hemraj used his key and unlocked the front door and let the criminal in.

    6) Hemraj and Criminal had some drinks and waited for for the sedatives to act and to strike at the right time (midnight). Not a regular drinker Hemraj also drank to mitigate stress .

    7) It was just a case of robbery. Hemraj might have noted where the jewellery and valuables are kept. He called his partner. If done by professional, it would be hard to spot the theft prematurely. After the stealing, Hemraj would act like nothing had happened and resign from the job after few days and abscond to Nepal.

    8) But the plan failed as Aarushi was conscious. Hearing the noise she spotted them outside. The criminal chased her to the room and hit her with the blunt object. ( Reference – Automatic doors can only be opened from inside.). Aarushi died from the blunt strike. Criminal asked Hemraj to open the terrace so that they could try to dispose of Aarushi’s body through terrace, as the front door was riskier. ( Reference – Some sources says that Hemrajs corps had his shoes on.) After they realized that it was not possible, Hemraj panicked as he would be the first one to be questioned, and threatens to expose the Criminal. Hemraj asks to take Aarushi to the hospital and wake up the Talwars. Criminal knew that Hemraj was the only one who could identify him. The Criminal hits him from behind using the same blunt object. Then he took a sharp object and slit the throat of both. He covered Hemraj, used cooler cover and bed sheets on terrace grill, as that could buy him time to escape the place. He Locked the door behind using Hemraj’s keyring. He walks through the front door.

    I personally buy the CBI ( 2nd groups ) argument that Talwars ( at least One) did it. But if they did not do the murders, then this is the only possible way, I could think of. The scary part is that Criminal, ( with shoe size 8 – 9 ) is still out there, free.
