Aarushi case: No leads from recovered cellphone

December 07, 2009 11:55 IST

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the murder of thirteen-year-old Aarushi Talwar and her family''s domestic help Hemraj has still not yielded fruitful results. Several questions still remain unanswered as Aarushi''s phone that was recovered recently has provided no further clue.

The CBI officials were confident that Aarushi''s cell phone would help them in their investigations and make their work easier. But the phone that was recovered from Bulandshahar in Uttar Pradesh has nothing in it. The SIM card, the memory card, the pictures and messages are all missing.

The Delhi CBI recovered the Nokia N-72 by tracking the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number six months after the murder. The CBI questioned Aarushi''s family with respect to the recovered phone, but what remains a mystery is how the phone reached Bulandshahar.

With no clue gained from the recovered phone, the CBI now is less hopeful of grabbing the killer directly, but is now eyeing on all those who tried to make a mess of the investigations.

An official from Ghaziabad said, "They have been questioning all the persons who are involved even the ward boys to get some information.
