An hour-long video that had surfaced on Thursday on social media website Youtube shows Krishna, Aarushi's father Rajesh Talwar's assistant, purportedly saying that the then CBI Joint Director Arun Kumar asked him to own up the crime on the promise of getting his sentence reduced.
The plea of the now-convicted dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, parents of Aarushi, demanding videos of narco tests, conducted on servants, was struck down by the Supreme Court on the grounds that they were not an admissible piece of evidence.
"I will never run from here. Why will I run? I have not committed any crime. I had told them first time when they had asked me to take allegations on myself," Krishna, who used to assist Rajesh in his clinic, is seen telling the doctor.
Joint Director Arun Kumar, a 1985-batch IPS officer, led the probe of the first team of CBI but its findings allegedly implicating servants-Krishna, Rajkumar and Vijay Mondal in the murders were dismissed by Director CBI Ashwani Kumar.
When contacted, Arun Kumar, now Inspector General of CRPF, Patna said the video concerned was not from an authentic source. Asked whether he feels it could have been doctored, Kumar said he cannot comment on that.
"It was shown on TV channels. I need not see that. Original narco is not there. What you are seeing is not original. It is not original. It is not from authentic source. Please get the CD from the lab or the CBI or from the accused persons whom it is authentically given. It's (these allegations) not there in original CD," Kumar told reporters over phone.
