It's not really a clean chit: Ex-CBI boss on Talwars' acquittal

Former Central Bureau of Investigation Director A P Singh, who headed the CBI during the investigation of the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case, said that the Allhabad high court on Thursday only said what he had said in the beginning that evidence is insufficient to prosecute Rajesh and Nupur Talwar.

"It is not really a clean chit because it says they've been given benefit of doubt and not that they are innocent," Singh said.

"Only weakness we found was that scene of crime had been badly tampered on the first day itself. As a result, after that we got nothing of value from the scene of crime. That was the major lacuna in the entire investigation," Singh said. -- ANI
