New Delhi/Ghaziabad: Nupur Talwar, accused in the double murder case of Aarushi-Hemraj, will have to remain in jail on Tuesday as the Sessions Court will take its decision on her bail plea on Wednesday. A special court hearing the bail plea of jailed Nupur Talwar reserved its order till Wednesday after hearing arguments from her lawyers and those of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
Nupur Talwar was not in court as her lawyers argued that she be given bail. Her husband, Rajesh Talwar, who is already out on bail, was not in court either as Special CBI Judge S. Lal heard the bail application.
Nupur Talwar's lawyers argued that there was no scientific evidence against her in the twin murders of her 14-year-old daughter Aarushi and their domestic help Hemraj on May 16, 2008, at their Noida residence.
While Aarushi's body, with her throat slit, was discovered first, the body of Hemraj was found later from the terrace of the house. If the main gate was bolted from outside, they said, how could the CBI justify its stance ruling out involvement of an outsider.
The third point put forward was that Nupur Talwar was the mother of a child and she had bought her a camera just a day earlier. The CBI argued that the Talwars had tampered with evidence.
The mother of slain teenage girl Aarushi had surrendered before the Ghaziabad court following the directives of the Supreme Court and filed a bail application which was later turned down by the court.
She was taken into judicial custody and later sent to the Dasna Jail where she spent the whole night. Notably, this was for the first time Nupur had been in jail for allegedly murdering her daughter and domestic help Hemraj.
MOTHER BREAKS INTO TEARS
Nupur who was sitting with her husband and co-accused Rajesh Talwar, already on bail, in a nearby court room of Special Judicial Magistrate Priti Singh broke down after her bail plea was rejected and had to be consoled by her relatives.
"Can I kill my own daughter? Is the concept of love of mother wiped out? If the evidence of CBI is deficient, should I go to Jail...I am the mother of the child who is dead. My husband has already been granted bail. On parity I should be given bail," Nupur's lawyers led by G P Thareja quoted from her statement.
"Whose liberty is being curtailed? -- the Mother's. Look at the evidence...look at the torture she would undergo?" Thareja said adding that she should be given interim bail as summoning order is before the Supreme Court.
While the hearing in Singh's court was going on in the morning, a tensed Nupur sat with her husband Rajesh Talwar and relatives, already on bail, in yellow salwar suit and kept chanting Hanuman Chalisa apparently seeking divine help.
NUPUR TAKEN TO DASNA JAIL, CELL NO 13
She was immediately escorted by women constables and taken to Dasna Jail in police vehicle and lodged in barrack number 13 of the district jail where her husband Rajesh had earlier spent 50 days after his arrest in the case.
HONOUR THE LOWER COURT
Last week, while hearing the review petition and appeal of Nupur seeking a stay on the execution of the non-bailable arrest warrant (NBW) issued by the trial court against her, the Supreme Court has asked her to honour the lower court order and surrender before it.
The CBI has opposed the review petition saying that the Talwars are misusing the process of law. The CBI said that by evading the trial court proceedings, the Talwars were producing evidence that should be examined by the trial court.
TEENAGE AARUSHI FOUND MURDERED
Dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar's only daughter 14-year-old Aarushi was 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.
