SC agrees to hear Talwars' plea in Aarushi case

The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear a plea of dentist couple Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, accused of killing their teenaged daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, for calling 14 witnesses to record their statements in the trial court.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Altamas Kabir posted for Friday hearing on the petition.
The Talwar couple have approached the apex court challenging the order of the special CBI court rejecting their plea for calling 14 other witnesses, including ADG (Law and Order) and the then CBI Joint Director Arun Kumar, to record their statements.

The trial court dismissed their petition on May 6 and ordered recording of statements of Rajesh and Nupur, who are the main accused. The statement of the CBI investigating officer AGL Kaul, the last prosecution witness has already been recorded.

The CBI has alleged in court that 14-year-old Aarushi’s murder five years back was carried out by her parents and that no outsider was present.
