Notably, this will be for the first time that Nupur will be in jail in the mysterious murder case of her teenage daughter Aarushi and domestic Hemraj.

While pronouncing the order in a jam-packed courtroom, Special CBI Judge Preeti Singh said, “Nupur Talwar be sent to judicial custody.”

Following the court’s order, Nupur would be shifted to the Dasna Jail around 4pm this evening.

The Special court passed its order after hearing the arguments from both the sides of the CBI and Nupur’s lawyer regarding her bail.

She can now file an appeal for bail in the sessions court on Tuesday.

Opposing the bail plea of Nupur, the CBI argued in its plea that Nupur should not be given bail since she is an accused in a sensational murder case. The probe agency, while pleading the court not to consider her status as a woman, cited various precedents set by the apex court on why she should not be given bail.

The mother of the slain teenage girl is likely to move to the Session’s court challenging special CBI court’s verdict on Monday.


Earlier, while hearing her review petition and appeal seeking a stay on the execution of the non-bailable arrest warrant (NBW) issued by the trial court against Nupur, the Supreme Court has asked her to honour the lower court order.

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.

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.
