Allahabad High Court on Tuesday asked the special CBI court in Ghaziabad to "expeditiously" decide the bail plea of Nupur Talwar, on trial along with her dentist husband Rajesh in the May 2008 murders of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.
Justice Balakrishna Narayana gave the direction to the Ghaziabad court on a petition by Nupur. The petition was seeking a direction to the trial court that her bail plea be decided "on the same day" as it was filed.
The judge, however, gave no formal judgment on Nupur's plea.
In Ghaziabad, police claimed to have made elaborate arrangements for Wednesday's hearing on the case at the Ghaziabad court.
District police chief Raghubir Lal said the police and Provincial Armed Constabulary would be deployed at the court.
"We would ensure thorough checking at the gates and sensitise the court complex before the hearing begins. One police sub-inspector and four constables would be deployed to escort the Talwar couple," Lal added.
He, however, said the couple had not demanded security from the police after Rajesh was attacked in the Ghaziabad court complex on January 25, 2011.
Soon after the attack on Talwar, the judge had issued orders under Section 327 of the Criminal Procedure Code and allowed only litigants and advocates related to the case inside the courtroom.
The CBI court had summoned the dentist couple as accused in the case after the probe agency filed its closure report. They had moved the high court and later the Supreme Court to get the court's orders quashed, but failed to get any relief. Last month, the top court had rejected the couple's plea to transfer the case petition to Delhi.
