These sensational revelations fly in the face of the CBI's closure report. Though the CBI has been unable to nail the accused, its investigations have completely ruled out the possibility of outsiders having killed Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj Banjade. Circumstantial evidence points to the complicity of those inside. The crime scene was methodically "dressed up"or cleansed of all evidence which could implicate the Talwars. An expert from the forensic science laboratory, Gandhinagar, who inspected the crime scene, says that the crime had been committed by someone "very close to Aarushi".
Nobody except the killer or killers, of course, knows what exactly happened in the Talwar residence during the six crucial hours between 12 midnight and 6 a. Aarushi was bludgeoned on her forehead and her throat slit with a small, sharp object. A reconstruction of the crime, however, increasingly points to an inside hand. The assailants had gained easy access to the flat because there were no signs of forced entry. They killed Aarushi and Hemraj, moved their bodies around the flat and even stayed behind for drinks.
The parents of Aarushi, Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, seem to have slept through an incredible amount of activity in their small flat. They claimed their bedroom door was shut and the air-conditioner turned on. The murderer dragged Hemraj's body to the terrace using a sheet. The body was cursorily covered with a cooler lid and a bedsheet on a clothesline. The murderers then locked the terrace door and re-entered the house. They even seemed to know where the Talwars' mini-bar was-behind a wooden panel near the dining table.
They drank from a bottle of whiskey and left it on the dining table. The bottle had bloodstains of both victims. That means that somebody entered her room nearly three hours after her murder. Whoever it was, failed to raise the alarm or even spot her body. She rang the doorbell four times. Normally, Hemraj, the domestic help, would open the door, but this time Nupur opened it. Rajesh was also awake. This was unusual because the couple were late risers. The iron grill door at the entrance was locked from outside, so Nupur threw the keys from the balcony to Bharti.
Three minutes later, when Bharti entered, she found the couple sobbing. Aarushi was found on the bed in a pool of blood. Bharti rushed out to inform the neighbours. Hemraj's room had an independent entry and opened into the flat from inside. The last call received on Hemraj's cellphone was from Nupur six hours after his murder. The mobile was still near the crime scene.
Another strange incident happened around this time. Nupur called Hemraj's cellphone from her landline at 6. The call was immediately disconnected. This means the dead servant's phone was attended by someone near the crime scene. Inexplicably, both Hemraj's and Aarushi's cellphones disappeared. Hemraj's phone was never found but Aarushi's Nokia N72 was found on a dirt track by a housemaid near Noida's Sadarpur area a fortnight later. Its memory was wiped clean.
The cellphone was a crucial piece of evidence. Aarushi would usually be up chatting with her friends until well past midnight. On the night of May 15, her cellphone was inactive after 9.
At around midnight, her friend Anmol called on the Talwar landline because he could not get through her cellphone.

There was no response. Anmol then sent an SMS to her cellphone at around This SMS was not received by Aarushi's phone. What were the Talwars doing before the murders?
According to the CBI closure report, after reaching home at 9. Around this time, Nupur came to Aarushi's room to switch on the Internet router. Aarushi was reading a book. The parents controlled access to Aarushi's room by locking it; the keys to her room would usually lie by Nupur's bedside.
Nupur told the police that she was not sure whether she locked Aarushi's door the last time she went to her room. Rajesh received a call from the US on his landline at this time. This indicated that his ringer was not silent.
