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 Supreme Court 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 that 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 High Court 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.
