New Delhi: The framing of charges will take place on Thursday in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case. On Tuesday the CBI had argued that the Talwars should be charged with murder, false FIR, destruction of evidence and misleading the court in the 2008 murder case.
The CBI had sought to charge the Talwar couple under 302, a charge which carries the maximum punishment of death sentence.
Nupur Talwar's bail plea comes up on Wednesday at the Allahabad High Court. The Supreme Court had earlier reserved its order on the review petition of Nupur.
The CBI also claimed that Aarushi and Hemraj's injuries were identical. "The golf stick recovered from the house matches the injury. The Talwars refused to identify Hemraj's body and gave false information regarding the crime scene," teh CBI counsel said.
The Talwars' counsel claimed there was no direct evidence to prove the charges that the CBI claimed against the Talwars.
The court had on May 16 fixed for Monday the start of arguments on framing of charges against the dentist couple, after rejecting their for a month to study the prosecution documents before beginning of the arguments in the 2008 murder case.
Special Judge Lal had rejected Talwars' plea saying the Supreme Court has ordered expeditious trial. While Rajesh Talwar is out on bail, Nupur has been in judicial custody since April 30 when she surrendered before a Ghaziabad court on a direction by the Supreme Court.
14-year-old Aarushi was found dead with her throat slit at her Noida residence on May 16, 2008 and the body of Hemraj was recovered from the terrace a day later.
