Ghaziabad: The Ghaziabad Sessions Court on Wednesday rejected the bail application of Nupur Talwar in the 2008 Aarushi-Hemraj sensational double murder case.

The court of Additional District Judge S Lal, which had reserved the order on the bail application of Nupur on Tuesday, said that while prima facie she was accused of killing her own progeny and the servant who came from Nepal, she may also create hindrance in smooth disposal of trial if given a bail.

Ordering 14-days judicial custody, the court, in its four-page order, also said that Nupur may flee from justice to delay the trial in the case.

Nupur, who was taken to Dasna Jail immediately after the order, will appear in the court of Special CBI Magistrate who is expected to commit the case to sessions for trial.

Nupur had filed an interim bail plea in the Sessions Court on Monday after the special CBI court turned down her bail application following her surrender on Monday.

On Tuesday, the Sessions Court had reserved its order till Wednesday after hearing the arguments of Nupur’s lawyer and probing agency CBI.

She had surrendered before the Ghaziabad court following the directives of the Supreme Court on Monday. She was taken into judicial custody and later sent to the Dasna Jail where she spent two nights in custody. Notably, this was for the first time Nupur had been in jail for allegedly murdering her daughter and domestic help Hemraj.

In her written statement filed before the court on Tuesday, Nupur had said that she "stands on a better footing viz-a-viz case of other accused Rajesh Talwar" who is on bail.
Rajesh was granted bail on July 11, 2008 after spending 50 days in Jail.
The CBI had contested the claim, saying Rajesh's bail plea was still under judicial review and hence there was no question of parity.


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.
