Holding that legal history is replete with instances of matricide, a special CBI court on Wednesday denied bail to dentist Nupur Talwar in the sensational 2008 double murder of her daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.

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

Disposing of her petition, Additional District and Sessions Judge S. Lal said he could not exercise the discretion of giving the bail to Ms. Talwar 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, Ms. Talwar may flee from justice and create hindrance in the speedy disposal of the case as directed by the Supreme Court.

The Judge also rejected Ms. Talwar's claim of parity with her husband, who is on bail, and also her plea for bail on the ground of being a woman.

@Manu, Is there any evidence available which justifies your statement? At least I have not found anything in the public domain nor the media seems to care to do publish a detailed analysis of it (@Hindu, are you listening?).

matricide means killing your own mother
filicide means killing your own child

It's pathetic in the way UP Police handled this case. The investigation seems to be full of faulty analysis and baseless charges. The shoddy investigation has given more than enough time to the criminals to get away. It looks like CBI has found a scape goat in Nupur Talwar which they are using to close the case asap.
Guilty or not, the horrible time the parents had in the hands of immoral, shameless police and being pronounced guilty by media who is only looking to sensational news, have made them suffer like a criminal should in the last 4 years.
