New Delhi: Turning the heat on the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Supreme Court on Monday issued notice to the CBI on dentist Nupur Talwar's plea seeking bail in the double murder case of her daughter Aarushi and Hemraj.
Bench of justices AK Patnaik and JS Khehar approved to hear Talwar's bail plea and has ordered CBI to file the response on her petition.
The case would next be heard on August 6 by the bench.
Nupur, who is behind the bars since she surrendered before the Ghaziabad court on April 30 this year, appealed in the apex court challenging the Allahabad High Court's decision. The Allahabad High Court had dismissed her bail plea on May 31.
One of the two prime accused in the case, Nupur Talwar had surrendered before the trial court following a stiff direction from the Supreme Court, which had also refused to stay the non-bailable warrant issued against her by the lower court on her failure to appear despite issuing of summons.
14-year-old Aarushi was found dead in her bedroom at the Talwar's residence in Jalvayu Vihar, Noida, on the intervening night of May 16-17, 2008. The body of Hemraj was found on May 17 on the terrace.
