Aarushi's murder: HC for early disposal of Nupur's bail plea

Allahabad, Mar 13: The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday asked Ghaziabad's Special CBI court to expeditiously decide the bail plea of Nupur Talwar, being tried along with her dentist husband Rajesh in the May 2008, twin murder case of their daughter Aarushi and domestic aide Hemraj.

Justice Balakrishna Narayana gave the direction to the Ghaziabad court on a petition by late Aarushi mother, pleading for a direction to the trial court that her bail plea should be decided "on the same day" it is filed.

Though Justice Narayana gave no formal judgement on Nupur Talwar's plea, he disposed of her petition observing that the trial court should "expeditiously" decide her bail plea. The hearing in the four-year-old, twin murder case is scheduled to resume tomorrow.

The Supreme Court had recently struck down the Noida-based dentist couple's plea for transfer of their trial to a Delhi court from that of Ghaziabad.

While opposing the Talwars' plea to the apex court, the CBI had said there were "hidden motives" behind the plea, which might have been filed as Section 438 of the Criminal Procedure Code (relating to anticipatory bail) was not applicable in Uttar Pradesh.
