The Allahabad High Court today rejected the bail plea of Nupur Talwar,mother of Arushi Talwar.

Nupur,along with her husband Rajesh Talwar,is facing charges of murder and destruction of evidence in connection with the murder of their daughter and domestic help Hemraj in their Noida residence on May 16,2008. The court’s order came after a hearing on the petition that went on for a week.

Rejecting the bail petition,a single judge bench of Justice Arvind Kumar Tripathi said that the petitioner has not been able to discharge the proof of burden as envisaged under Section 106 of the Evidence Act. This Section says that when any fact is especially within the knowledge of any person,the burden of proving that fact is upon him. In this case,the petitioner has not been able to prove that she was not involved in the offence she has been charged with,the court said.
