Aarushi case: SC to hear Nupur Talwar's plea

   Apr 13, 10:47 am

New Delhi, Apr 13 (ANI): The Supreme Court will today hear Nupur Talwar's plea seeking stay on the non-bailable warrant issued against her by a trial court in connection with the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case.

The apex court has directed Nupur Talwar to present herself in court today. Earlier, on Thursday, the apex court had refused to entertain her plea.

The Ghaziabad court issued the warrant on Wednesday after Nupur failed to show up in the court.

Earlier, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had searched for Nupur in south and central Delhi but failed to locate her.

The special CBI court had on March 14 asked Nupur to appear in court within 30 days. But the Talwars" counsel sought exemption on the basis of a pending plea in the Supreme Court against facing trial.

Aarushi"s parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar had filed a plea seeking review of its January 6 order in which the apex court had cleared the decks for the couple"s trial in the murder case by dismissing their plea to quash criminal proceedings against them.

Fourteen-year-old Aarushi, the only daughter of the Talwars, was found dead at the family's Noida residence on the intervening night of May 15-16, 2008.

The body of their servant Hemraj was found next day on the terrace. (ANI)
