Aarushi murder: Hearing in Nupur Talwar’s trial May 9

Ghaziabad: The trial of dentist Nupur Talwar, accused in the 2008 twin murders of her teenaged daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, could not be initiated in the CBI sessions court Thursday after her lawyers cited lack of complete documents. The next hearing is on May 9.

The case was to be referred to the sessions court from the magistrate’s court after Nupur Talwar’s bail was rejected Wednesday. But her lawyers said that they were not furnished the complete set of documents by the sessions court and requested that another date be fixed.

The court then fixed May 9 for the next hearing. Nupur Talwar, who was present in court along with husband Rajesh Talwar, has already spent three nights in Ghaziabad’s Dasna jail.

Earlier the Ghaziabad sessions court denied her bail on the basis that she was prima facie accused in a double murder, and that there was a possibility that she could flee from trial. The three and a half page judgement says, “She can create hinderance in smooth disposal of trial despite direction from the Supreme Court and she can delay the trial by fleeing”.
