Nupur Talwar,mother of murdered teenager Arushi,on Tuesday moved for bail in the Supreme Court.
Currently lodged in Dasna jail,she is a co-accused along with her husband Rajesh Talwar in the 2008 twin murder of Arushi and domestic help Hemraj. Her lawyer,Rebecca John,said the bail plea is likely to be heard on Friday. Her bail application before the special court was earlier rejected following opposition from the CBI. The Allahabad High Court,too,rejected her bail application on May 30. Rajesh and Nupur are currently undergoing trial at a sessions court in Ghaziabad,facing charges of murder and destruction of evidence. Rajesh is facing additional charge of misleading investigations by filing an FIR against Hemraj,whose body was found on the terrace of their home in Noida two days after Arushis murder.
Though cross-examination of witnesses was to continue on Tuesday,proceedings were adjourned for July 10 following a strike in the Ghaziabad court.
