The Allahabad High court today dismissed a bail plea filed by Nupur Talwar, who along with her husband Rajesh Talwar, is accused of murdering their daughter and domestic help Hemraj.
The CBI had opposed the dentist's bail plea on the grounds that she had been evading arrest and had not been co-operating with investigations, Times Now reported.
Nupur, who is presently lodged in the Dasna jail, had been arrested by the CBI on 2 May for her alleged involvement in the murder case.
She and husband Rajesh have been charged by a sessions court with murder, destruction of evidence and the trial is expected to begin on 4 June.
Rajesh Talwar is presently out on bail and the high court is expected to decide soon on a plea by the CBI seeking to quash the bail.
A review petition filed by Nupur is still pending before the Supreme Court where the Talwars have questioned a lower court's judgement asking the CBI to prosecute them for their alleged involvement in the murder.
Aarushi was found dead in her bedroom at Talwar’s Jalvayu Vihar residence in Noida on 16 May, 2008. The next day, the body of Hemraj, who was initially suspected of killing her, was also found on the terrace of their flat.
The sessions court hearing the case had said there is enough prima-facie evidence to start trial against accused Rajesh and Nupur under charges of Section 302 read with Section 34 (murder with common intention) of Indian Penal Code and Section 201 read with Section 34 (destruction of evidence with common intention) of the IPC.
