Ghaziabad, May 3 (IBNS): A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Ghaziabad on Thursday is expected to begin the trial against Rajesh and Nupur Talwar for allegedly murdering their teenage daughter Aarushi.
Nupur Talwar, who is currently lodged at the Dasna Jail after having surrendered on Monday, nearly 14 months after being made an accused in he case, has already reached the court for the proceedings, reports said.
The court on Thursday had rejected Nupur Talwar's bail plea, also accused of murdering the Tawlar family's domestic help Hemraj, prompting her to move the Supreme Court.
The sessions court earlier observed that if granted bail Nupur Talwar can tamper with evidence and can evade the justice system going by her past records.
The court told Nupur Talwar that "prima facie you are an accused in murder and destruction of evidence."
Nupur Talwar, who was on a religious fast on Wednesday praying for her release from Dasna jail where she is currently lodged, would have to spend more time in prison now after the rejection of her bail.
The Ghaziabad court headed by Judge S Lal had begun hearing Nupur Talwar's lawyer's request for bail on Monday.
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.
The case has since spiralled into one of the country's biggest unsolved cases, with a prolonged investigation marked by admissions of lack of evidence and dramatic twists.
Nupur and Rajesh Talwar maintain that they are innocent, and are being framed by the CBI since the agency has not been able to track down the real killers.
