The focus for Nupur Talwar will now be on the Supreme Court hearing on Friday of her review petition, during which her lawyers are likely to make an argument for her bail.
No fresh application for bail has been filed in the Allahabad High Court today. The defence will be banking on the Supreme Court to grant her relief, failing which they will approach the Allahabad High court. The Sessions Court today rejected Nupur’s bail application on the grounds that she is prima facie accused in a double murder and that she could hinder smooth disposal of trial.
Nupur was taken into judicial custody following her surrender before the trial court on Monday. The Supreme Court last Friday (27 April) while agreeing to hear her review petition had directed her to surrender before the trial court and refused to grant her anticipatory bail.
Nupur’s review petition seeks to reverse the Supreme Court January 6 order refusing to interfere with the trial court’s decision to put her and her husband Rajesh Talwar on trial for the murder of their daughter Aarushi Talwar and domestic help Hemraj.
