Right of Dr. Talwar to CBI closure reports............. Aarushi Murder Case.

A special CBI court in Ghaziabad directed the investigating agency to provide a copy of closure report to Dr Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, the parents of Aarushi Talwar. Then why does CBI deny to do so? In this unsolved case the special court observed that no one can be called an accused on the basis of the agency's report. “No one can be accounted as accused," observed Central Bureau of Investigation Special Magistrate Preeti Singh while passing an order to provide a copy of the closure report to the Talwars. Though Dr.Talwar is the main suspect in the case this is not a valid reason given by the CBI for not providing him with the closure reports. The Indian constitution establishes our view of criminal justice in a manner that we express an accused or suspect as “innocent until proven guilty.”  An individual who is found “not guilty” is, in fact, innocent in the eyes of the law and the constitution. Besides, as per law, an accused is supposed to get the copy of the police report with annexures filed under Sec 173 CrPC. Dr. Talwar should be granted a copy of the closure report by the CBI.  The Government has given us Constitution to protect our rights and provide confidence to the court system, then why don’t we respect the rights of the accused. Dr. Talwar may or may not be guilty for his daughter’s murder, but just for the fact that we hand him a copy of the closure reports does not acquit him from the crime if he has so committed. Under the Indian law the final decision in a case is of the court of law and even here the court would be the appropriate authority to decide the case but nonetheless let us not deprive Dr. Talwar of his rights to get a copy of the closure reports and understand why the investigation has come to an end.
