Nupur denied bail; moves SC

Press Trust of India  |  Ghaziabad 

As she prepared for her third day of stay in the Dasna jail, Nupur's lawyers immediately moved for bail in the Supreme Court where she has already sought a review of its decision giving a go ahead to the criminal prosecution of her and her dentist husband Rajesh Talwar.

Disposing of her petition, Additional District and Sessions Judge S Lal said he cannot exercise the discretion of giving the bail to Nupur since "there is a prima facie evidence to suggest the involvement of the accused (Nupur)" in the light of the seriousness of the offence and severity of the punishment provided.

"The legal history is replete with instances of matricide, patricide and fratricide. Everything is possible in these days of modern era wherein moral values are fast declining and one can stoop to the lowest extent.

"She is accused of killing her own progeny, who was in her teens, apart from killing domestic help Hemraj, who had come over from Nepal to eke out a livelihood...

She is also accused of obliterating the evidence of commission of offence of twin murders. At this stage it will not be proper to advert to the merits of the case," he said in his four-page order.

Accepting CBI's contention, the Judge noted that if given bail, Nupur may flee from justice and create hindrance in the speedy disposal of the case as directed by the Supreme Court. MORE PTI ABS NES
