Nupur’s bail plea rejected; to stay in jail for night

NEW DELHI/GHAZIABAD, Apr 30: Dr Nupur Talwar, co-accused in the murder of her schoolgirl daughter Aarushi Talwar and domestic help Hemraj, today surrendered before a special CBI court in Ghaziabad.

She was later sent to Dasna jail after her application for interim bail was rejected.

Earlier, following the refusal of CBI Special Judge Preeti Singh to consider her bail application citing lack of jurisdiction, Dr Talwar’s lawyers moved the District and Sessions Court.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Shyamlal rejected her interim bail plea and posted the application for regular bail for hearing tomorrow. She was sent to Dasna jail following rejection of the application.

She had applied for bail under Section 437 of CrPC saying she was a woman. However, the court rejected her plea telling her that the charges levelled against her were serious.

The CBI argued that being a woman was not a ground for bail. It said she had been avoiding orders to appear in court and that it was a heinous case of double murder.

Soon after Dr Talwar surrendered in the court, she was taken into custody by the CBI.

She had arrived at the court along with her husband Rajesh Talwar, who is also accused of the murder of their daughter Aarushi and their domestic help Hemraj. They were found dead at Talwar’s home in Noida in May 2008.(UNI)
