Nupur Talwar bail hearing adjourned till 17 Sep

The Supreme Court has adjourned the hearing of a bail application by Nupur Talwar, one of the two co-accused in the Aarushi Talwar - Hemraj double murder case. The matter will now be taken up on 17 September.

Nupur Talwar has beein in judicial custody at the Dasna jail since 2 May, for her alleged involvement in the murder case.

Nupur, who has been in jail since her surrender before the Ghaziabad court on 30 April, had moved the apex court challenging the Allahabad High Court’s order which had on 31 May dismissed her plea for bail.

She had surrendered before the trial court following a stern direction from the Supreme Court, which had also refused to stay a non-bailable warrant issued against her by the lower court on her failure to appear despite an issuing of summons.

The CBI opposing the bail plea, told the court that there are 13 material witnesses in the case who can be influenced if Nupur Talwar is let out on bail. The apex court then directed the CBI to expedite examination of these witnesses.

Aarushi, 14, was found murdered at her parents' Noida residence 16 May, 2008. The body of Hemraj was found the next day on the terrace of the house.

A CBI court has charged the Talwars under sections 302/34 (murder with common intention) and 201 (destruction of evidence with common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). In addition to these, the court charged Rajesh Talwar under section 203 (giving false information in respect of an offence committed) of the IPC.
