Aarushi-Hemraj murder: Nupur bail plea rejected, sent to jail

Ghaziabad, Apr 30 (PTI) Nupur Talwar, an accused in the 2008 double murder of her daughter Aarushi and a domestic help, was jailed today after a district court rejected her interim bail plea in which she said a mother can't kill her own child. Additional District Judge S Lal fixed tomorrow as hearing on her plea for regular bail. In his order, Lal said he did not find it feasible to let accused enlarged on interim bail. "Consequently, the application is rejected," he said. Nupur who was sitting with her husband and co-accused Rajesh Talwar, already on bail, in a nearby court room of Special Judicial Magistrate Priti Singh broke down after hearing the news and was consoled by her relatives. She was immediately escorted by women constables and taken to Dasna Jail in police vehicle where she would spend at least tonight and will be lodged in barrack number 13 of the district jail where her husband Rajesh had earlier spent 50 days after his arrest in the case. During the hearing, defence counsels of Nupur made a strong pitch for her bail even citing concept of trinity -- the creator, the protector and the destroyer -- of Indian mythology to claim that "creater cannot be destroyer". "Can I kill my own daughter? Is the concept of love of mother wiped out? If the evidence of CBI is deficient, should I go to Jail...I am the mother of the child who is dead. My husband has already been granted bail. On parity I should be given bail," Nupur's lawyers led by G P Thareja quoted from her statement. "Whose liberty is being curtailed? -- the Mother's. Look at the evidence...look at the torture she would undergo?" Thareja said adding that she should be given interim bail as summoning order is before the Supreme Court. While the hearing in Singh's court was going on in the morning, a tensed Nupur sat with her husband Rajesh Talwar and relatives, already on bail, in yellow salwar suit and kept chanting Hanuman Chalisa apparently seeking divine help.
