Ghaziabad / New Delhi: The special CBI court in Ghaziabad on Wednesday extended the non-bailable warrant against Nupur Talwar, co-accused in the 2008 double murder case of Aarushi-Hemraj.
While hearing the NBW extension plea of the probing agency, the local court extended the non-bailable warrant till April 30.  

Special Magistrate Priti Singh observed warrant could not executed by the CBI since to special leave petition was pending in the Supreme Court.The agency also filed its compliance report before court in which it said that searches were conducted at six places to arrest Nupur but she went into hiding.

Meanwhile, the probing agency told the court that it would not arrest Nupur till the pendency of her special leave petition before the Supreme Court but sought the extension of the warrant as an instrument to take action against her in case she does not get relief from the Apex Court.

The Central Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday submitted before the court to issue a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against Nupur as the warrant issued earlier had expired on Wednesday.

Counsel for Talwar had opposed the CBI plea on the ground that her bail application was pending before the Supreme Court, and the agency was restrained from arresting her.

Meanwhile, the local court on Wednesday resumed hearing in the twin murder case of teenaged Aarushi Talwar and domestic help Hemraj in which doctor couple Rajesh Talwar and his wife Nupur are the main accuse.  

After hearing the statement of Rajesh Talwar, the court will pronounce its order at 12: 30 pm on Wednesday.

During the previous hearing on April 13, the court had ordered Nupur to be present during Wednesday’s hearing but she failed to appear before the court.

CBI changes stance?

The CBI sought the court to extend the non-bailable warrant against Nupur by two weeks pleading that fresh NBW will be needed to arrest her.

While arguing in the court, the CBI said that no written agreement was given that Nupur will not be arrested. Notably, the CBI earlier had said that they knew where Nupur was but had not arrested her. But now, CBI maintained that, the accused was absconding and the probing agency failed to find her.

The agency also filed its compliance report before court in which it said that searches were conducted at six places to arrest Nupur but she went into hiding.

It also claimed that she knew that the court has issued a NBW against her but despite that she kept evading arrest.

During last hearing, the CBI said in the court that Nupur had no legal reason not to appear, following which the non-bailable warrant was issued, but Nupur then approached the Supreme Court for anticipatory bail.

On April 12, Nupur had filed a plea in the Apex Court seeking quashing of the Ghaziabad court order of issuing non-bailable warrant (NBW) against her after she failed to appear before the court.

Teenage Aarushi found murdered

Dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar's only daughter 14-year-old Aarushi had been found dead at the family's Noida residence on the night intervening May 15 and 16, 2008. The next day, the body of their servant Hemraj was also found on the terrace of the house.

Nupur had earlier moved both the Allahabad High Court and the Supreme Court but had failed to get any relief.

The High Court had on Tuesday denied her relief from arrest. Hearing on another application of advocate Sanjay Tyagi regarding the surgical gloves, allegedly used by the killers in Aarushi case, has been deferred by the court till the next date.
