New Delhi, June 7 (IANS) The Supreme Court Thursday rejected dentist Nupur Talwar’s petition seeking review of the earlier order that she and her husband Rajesh be tried for the murder of their daughter Aarushi and their domestic help Hemraj. It also turned down the plea for further investigation in the case.

While Nupur Talwar is at the Dasna jail in Ghaziabad, her husband, also a dentist is out on bail.

An apex court bench of Justices A.K. Patnaik and J.S. Khehar said she could move a fresh petition contesting the Allahabad High Court verdict that had rejected her bail plea.

Aarushi, 14, was found murdered at her parents’ Noida residence May 16, 2008. The body of her domestic help Hemraj was found the next day on the terrace of the house.

A Central Bureau of Investigation court has charged the Talwars under sections 302/34 (murder with common intention) and 201 (destruction of evidence with common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). In addition to these, the court charged Rajesh Talwar under section 203 (giving false information respecting an offence committed) of IPC.
