CBI forced me to depose: Talwar's maid

In a dramatic turn of events, a CBI witness and maid of Rajesh and Nupur Talwar on Tuesday told the special CBI court here that she was “forced” by the probe agency to give statements in the sensational Aarushi-Hemraj murder case.

On Monday, the part-time maid, Bharti Mandal, had told the court that the main doors of the Talwars’ house were locked from inside on the morning after the killings.

The revelation came during her cross-examination by three defence counsel, including one of the counsel for the Talwars, Manoj Sishodia.

Bharti, 35, told the court that “I am deposing what ever was taught to me by the CBI”. After her disclosure, the probe agency’s counsel took Bharti outside the court, prompting Shishodia to move an application seeking action against the CBI official who took away the witness.
