The Supreme Court will decide on Thursday the petition by Nupur Talwar, in which she had sought reconsideration of an earlier order by the apex court that paved the way for the trial of Nupur and and her husband Rajesh in the double murder of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.
Besides Nupur, her husband Rajesh is also facing trial after the special CBI court in Ghaziabad refused to accept the closure report in the four-year-old murder case.
A bench of Justice AK Patnaik and Justice JS Khehar would also pronounce its order on Nupur's bail application. The court had on May 16 reserved its orders on both the pleas after hearing extensive arguments forwarded by the dentist and the CBI.
Nupur had claimed that she was not asking for a clean chit in the case but seeking a direction to the CBI to re-investigate the case.
Aarushi was found dead with her throat slit at her Noida residence on the intervening night of May 15 and 16, 2008, while Hemraj's body was recovered from the terrace of the house a day later. Though Nupur is in judicial custody, Rajesh is out on bail. Trial against the duo has already begun in the case after a session's court ordered framing of charges.
Departing from normal practice of hearing review petitions in the judges' chambers, the apex court had on March 15 decided to hear in open court the petition filed by the dentist couple seeking review of its January 6 order in which it had cleared the decks for the couple's trial in the murder case by dismissing their plea to quash criminal proceedings against them.
