In a blow to the Talwars in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case, the CBI has told the special court that the teenager was killed by her parents, media reports said.

According to reports, Nupur and Rajesh Talwar murdered their daughter at their Noida residence in May 2008.

Earlier, appearing as a prosecution witness in a Ghaziabad court where the dentist couple are being tried for murder of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, Dr Mohinder Singh Dahiya, Director of the Institute of Forensic Science, Gujarat Forensic Sciences University, had claimed that the victims were attacked in  Aarushi's bedroom.

Dahiya, who had been asked by the CBI to prepare a report in 2009, had said: "I found that no 'outsider' could have committed the crime."

"My findings show that the cuts on the neck of both victims were made post death. I also found during my examination of the scene that both Aarushi and Hemraj were attacked on the head by a golf club. After he was killed, Hemraj's body was dragged to the terrace where his throat was slit," Dahiya had told the court.

"The cuts on the neck extended from one ear to the back of the neck on both victims. If the person was living when the cuts were made, there would have been arterial spurt of blood, none of which was present either in the bedroom or the terrace. Both the victims had their necks slit while they were in a horizontal position. There was also no signs of resistance from either Aarushi or Hemraj," he had said.
