Aarushi-Hemraj murder: Final arguments to begin today
On September 28, the CBI had rejected the Talwar couple's plea to send the suspected murder weapon for another DNA test.

New Delhi: The final arguments in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case are likely to come up for hearing in the Ghaziabad court on Monday. On September 28, the CBI had rejected the Talwar couple's plea to send the suspected murder object, 'khukri', to a British forensic lab for another round of DNA testing.

After rejecting the petition, Additional Sessions Judge Shyam Lal had fixed September 30 for the start of final arguments in case. 'Khukri', a sharp-edged weapon suspected to be used in the crime, was recovered from the room of Talwars' compounder Krishna.

On September 17, a London-based DNA expert, also a defence witness in the case, had told the CBI court that it was still possible to find some DNA on the handle of 'khukhri'. Andre Semikhodski had told the court that the handle has several grooves and it was possible to extract DNAs from it.

"We wanted khukri to be sent to England for DNA test, but our application was rejected by the respected court," said Manoj Sisodia, counsel for the dentist couple.
