Highlight Story

A Ghaziabad sessions court is expected to hear on Wednesday the bail plea of Nupur Talwar, who is co-accused who is co-accused, along with her husband, Rajesh Talwar, in the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case.

The apex court on May 4 had postponed the hearing of Nupur's bail petition in the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case. The court had also deferred hearing the review plea filed by Nupur and Rajesh Talwar to quash trial proceedings against them.

Nupur Talwar, a dentist like her husband, was brought to court from the jail where she has been staying for nearly 10 days, after two different courts rejected her request for bail.

An official at the jail said that she is planning to write a book called 'Story of an Unfortunate Mother', through which she hopes the truth will manifest.

Aarushi Talwar, 13, was found with her throat slit in her bedroom in May 2008.  The initial suspect was the family's missing domestic help, Hemraj, a man from Nepal.   But he was discovered dead on the Talwars' terrace hours later.  The murder weapons used to kill Aarushi and Hemraj were never found.  In 2010, the CBI asked for permission to close the case because it did not have enough evidence to formally charge anyone with the double murder.  Despite that statement, the CBI said it believed that Rajesh Talwar was guilty.  The judge handling the case in Ghaziabad then said that the Talwars would be tried for murder, criminal conspiracy and destruction of evidence.
