New Delhi/Ghaziabad: The special CBI court on Wednesday rejected Nupur Talwar’s plea in which she had sought more documents from CBI in the 2008 sensational double murder case of daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.

The Talwars' counsel has claimed that the documents given to them by the CBI were not enough and hence more documents must be provided to his client.

Judge Preeti Singh, who heads the special CBI Court, transferred the case to a Sessions Court for trial.

The case will now be heard by the Sessions Court on May 11.

Meanwhile, Nupur Talwar, who has filed bail and review petition in the Supreme Court, is expecting some kind of relief from it as her plea will come up for hearing in the Apex Court on Wednesday.

The dentist couple had moved a review petition in the Apex Court after it refused to quash trial proceedings against them. 
Nupur has sought quashing criminal proceedings against herself and husband Rajesh Talwar.


Last week, Nupur had moved the Apex Court seeking bail after setbacks from the Sessions Court in Ghaziabad and the special CBI court recently.


On Thursday, the trial in the 2008 sensational murder case of teenage Aarushi Talwar and domestic help Hemraj could not be initiated in the CBI court after Nupur’s lawyers cited lack of documents.

The case was to be referred to the Sessions Court from the magistrate's court after Nupur Talwar's bail was rejected last week on Wednesday. But her lawyers said they were not furnished the complete set of documents by the Sessions Court and requested that another date be fixed. The court then fixed May 9 for the next hearing.


Following a Supreme Court's directive, the dentist had surrendered in the special CBI court in Ghaziabad on Monday. Her bail plea was rejected by the special court after which she was taken into custody and later sent to the Dasna jail.


Earlier, 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.


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.
