Nupur Talwar, an accused in the 2008 double murder of her daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, will have to spend a second night in jail after a Ghaziabad court on Tuesday reserved till Wednesday its order on her bail plea.
Additional District Judge S Lal reserved the order on the bail application of Nupur, who was sent to jail on Monday, after hearing arguments of her counsel as well as the Central Bureau of Investigation, which opposed any relief to her. Nupur, a dentist, will again be sent to the Dasna jail.
Nupur's lawyer claimed there was no evidence against her. She had undergone scientific tests like lie detection and polygraphy and nothing was found against her, he said.
Besides, finger prints found in the crime scene did not match those of Nupur and since her husband and co-accused Rajesh Talwar was given bail, she should also be given bail on a parity basis as she is a woman, the lawyer submitted.
The CBI's counsel opposed the bail plea, saying Rajesh was not on regular bail and his bail was under review.
Nupur was sent to jail after her application for interim bail was rejected on Monday.
Aarushi, 14, and Talwars' domestic help Hemraj were murdered in May 2008 in the couple's flat in Noida.
