The Allahabad High Court on Thursday admitted the appeals filed by dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, challenging their conviction and life sentence in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case.
Hearing on the bail pleas, which were submitted along with the appeals, will begin on March 11.
Aarushi was found dead in her Noida home on the morning of May 17, 2008, while Hemraj’s body was found a day later on the terrace. The couple was convicted on November 25, 2013, and given a life term by a special CBI court in Ghaziabad.
Two criminal appeals, along with the Talwars’ bail applications, came up for hearing before a division bench of Justices V K Shukla and Karunanand Bajpayee.
Passing identical orders for both, the bench said, “One month time is accorded to Additional Government Advocate and Anurag Khanna (CBI counsel), to file objections (to the bail) in consonance with the provisions…
Copy of the same be served upon Vikram D Chauhan, advocate, so that, in case he so feels, he may file rebuttal in the same.” The court also summoned the original lower court record.
