Aarushi-Hemraj murder case: SC to hear Nupur Talwar's bail plea

New Delhi: The Supreme Court is set to hear Nupur Talwar's bail application in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case. She has been in judicial custody for four months for her alleged role in the double murder of her daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.

The CBI has opposed her bail arguing that Nupur could influence the 13 witnesses. The apex court had directed the CBI to expedite examination of these witnesses.

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

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.
