Ghaziabad, May 2 (IBNS): A court in Ghaziabad on Wednesday is expected to deliver its verdict on the bail plea of Nupur Talwar, accused of the double murder of her daughter Aarushi and her domestic help Hemraj.
According to media reports, Talwar, meanwhile, began a religious fast on Wednesday praying for her release from Dasna jail where she is currently lodged.
The Ghaziabad court headed by Judge S Lal began hearing her lawyer's request for bail on Monday, but said he would make his decision on Wednesday.
Nupur's lawyers moved to the Ghaziabad sessions court for bail after a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court rejected her bail plea on Monday in the Aarushi murder case.
Following the directions of the Supreme Court, Nupur on Monday surrendered before the CBI court in Ghaziabad where her trial will begin in the 2008 murder case of her teenage daughter.
She was taken into court custody. Later her bail plea was rejected too by the CBI court.
Nupur had earlier filed an anticipatory bail plea before the Supreme Court, but the apex court had refused to suspend the non-bailable warrant issued against her.
However, it had said that it will consider her bail plea after her arrest.
Aarushi Talwar was found dead, with her throat slit, at the Talwar residence in Noida in the morning of May 16, 2008. The body of Hemraj, Talwars' domestic help, was found on the terrace the next day.
