New Delhi: Murdered teenager Aarushi Talwar's mother Nupur Talwar on Monday arrived at the special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Ghaziabad, along with her mother and husband Rajesh Talwar, to surrender.
This comes after the Supreme Court directed Nupur to surrender before the trial court while refusing to stay the non-bailable warrant against her.
The lawyers of the Talwars are likely to file a plea for regular bail for the mother of the slain teenager.
If the magistrate rejects her bail plea, Nupur is likely to be sent to judicial custody. If the court decides to give a notice to the CBI to reply on her bail application, Nupur's lawyers may ask for interim protection.
Nupur's husband Rajesh Talwar is on bail till May 7 and the CBI has challenged it as well.
The court had earlier extended the non-bailable warrant against Nupur Talwar till April 30. The CBI had sought an extension of the warrant date and said that Nupur Talwar won't be arrested until the Chief Justice takes up the matter.
She got a temporary breather from the Supreme Court. Her plea against a non-bailable warrant is still pending in the Supreme Court.
Earlier, the Ghaziabad court had issued a non-bailable warrant against Nupur Talwar after she failed to appear before a special CBI court despite a deadline given to her.
Rajesh Talwar and his wife Nupur have been accused by the CBI of being involved in the murder of their teenaged daughter Aarushi in May 2008.
Aarushi, 14, was found dead inside her Noida residence in May, 2008 with her throat slit and the body of the Talwars' domestic servant Hemraj was recovered from the terrace hours later.
An outcry against the shoddy investigation by Uttar Pradesh police had led to the then Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh handing over the case to the CBI.
