New Delhi: Murdered teenager Aarushi Talwar's mother Nupur failed to convince the Allahabad High Court on Thursday to grant her bail in the double murder case of her daughter and domestic help Hemraj. The High Court rejected Nupur Talwar's bail application and said that the trial in the sensational murder case would continue.
Nupur had applied for bail after the sessions court rejected her plea. She has been lodged in Ghaziabad's Dasna Jail since April 30.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had opposed Nupur's bail saying that she may try to scuttle the legal process if she was set free. The agency also said that the court should consider her conduct since the time she was made accused and not grant her bail.
Nupur and her husband Rajesh Talwar have been charged with murder, destruction of evidence and conspiracy in the double murder case that took place in May 2008. Rajesh Talwar has also been charged with misleading the investigation in the double murder case.
The CBI has claimed the Talwars' maid, the guard and driver corroborate their 'last scene theory' according to which there were four people living in the house - Rajesh Talwar, Nupur Talwar, Aarushi Talwar and Hemraj - and there was no sign of a fifth person's entry at the time of the murders. "Four people were there, two died and two were left. When a murder takes place in a closed house and two are dead, then the onus shifts on those who are alive," the CBI had argued.
The CBI also claims that Aarushi and Hemraj's injuries were identical. "The golf stick recovered from the house matches the injury. The Talwars refused to identify Hemraj's body and gave false information regarding the crime scene," according to the CBI.
Aarushi was found murdered in her Jalvayu Vihar residence in Noida on May 16, 2008. The body of Hemraj, who was initially suspected to have killed the teenager, was found on the terrace of Talwar's home on May 17.
