Aarushi Talwar New Delhi, July 3 (IANS) Nupur Talwar Tuesday moved the Supreme Court for bail in the 2008 double murder case of her daughter Aarushi Talwar and domestic help Hemraj. She was arrested April 30 and is lodged in Dasna jail in Ghaziabad.

Nupur Talwar has challenged the May 31 Allahabad High Court order rejecting her bail plea.

The apex court while rejecting Nupur Talwar’s plea for reviewing its order asking her and her husband Rajesh Talwar to stand trial in the case, had June 7 asked her to apply afresh for bail.

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 (CBI) special ourt in Ghaziabad had framed charges against the dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the double murder case.

A CBI 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 in respect of an offence committed) of the IPC.

The apex court Jan 6 rejected their plea challenging the CBI court order disallowing the closure report by the probe agency and also a plea for further trial Rajesh Talwar.
