NOIDA: Dr Naresh Raj, who done the port-mortem on Hemraj, has said that he testified in court that Hemraj could have been in the middle of a sexual act with Aarushi or was preparing for it as he had been convinced by the theory put forward by a CBI official.
“You never think of a theory beforehand. Earlier, we did not think like that but later on we felt that there was no reason for someone else to hide the body of Hemraj,” he said.
Dr Raj, a paediatrician at the Super Speciality Paediatric Hospital and Post Graduate Teaching Institute (SSPHPGTI), has been criticised by the Allahabad high court for citing “marital experience” rather than medi cal science for his observation. The court has slammed the doctors who conducted the post-mortem on Aarushi and Hemraj for introducing the `sexual intercourse theory’ as motive for the double murder “without an iota of evidence”.
Hemraj’s body was found by the police from the terrace a day after Aarushi was found murdered in her room.
Raj was also in a personal dilemma during the course of the hearing. His wife Richa Saxena, a pathologist, who examined the slides of Aarushi’s swabs, was accused of siding with the Talwars.
