Moving to stall her arrest in the case relating to the 2008 murder of her daughter Arushi,dentist Nupur Talwar on Thursday moved the Supreme Court,challenging the non-bailable warrant (NBW) issued against her by a special CBI court in Ghaziabad. The SC agreed to hear her case on Friday.

Nupur moved the court on a day when CBI teams fanned out across Delhi and the NCR in search of her. She failed to show up in the trial court on Wednesday and a CBI team,which went looking for her after issue of the warrant,failed to find her at the Talwar home in Hauz Khas in South Delhi.

In the Supreme Court,senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi appeared for her and sought an urgent hearing. He said his client was not running from the law since she had come to the Supreme Court on Wednesday for filing an affidavit and would be there on Friday when her case is taken up. A bench of Justices A K Patnaik and Swatanter Kumar said the matter would be taken up on Friday.

Nupur and husband Rajesh Talwar,also a dentist,are facing trial in the murder case of their 14-year old daughter Arushi and domestic help Hemraj.

Nupur has also challenged the April 9 order of the Allahabad HC which had suspended its earlier order asking the Ghaziabad court to “expeditiously” decide any bail application moved by her.

The special CBI court in Ghaziabad,while issuing the non bailable warrant,fixed April 18 as the next date of hearing and directed that Nupur be produced before the court on that date.

Teams of the CBI searched for Nupur on Thursday and CBI sources said they had been able to locate her position near the Capital. Sources said Nupur had not been put under arrest but a watch was being kept on her. The agency is waiting for word from the Supreme Court on Friday.

The CBI said teams fanned out since morning and contacted relatives and family members of the Talwar couple. From examination of their contacts,the agency was able to narrow down Nupur’s location. Among the close contacts of Nupur,the CBI got in touch with Dinesh Talwar,her brother-in-law. A house in Noida’s Jalvayu Vihar was also searched. CBI officials received information that Nupur’s parents were staying in this house but when a team reached the house,it was found locked.
