Talwars submit list of 13 defence witnesses

Dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar submitted a list of 13 witnesses on Wednesday, which includes former Uttar Pradesh ADG (crime, law and order) Arun Kumar, to a special CBI court in the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case trial.

Earlier, the couple’s plea against CBI for dropping its witnesses was rejected by Supreme Court. The court had said that once the recording of Talwar couple’s statement is done, witnesses could be examined.

“How can you compel the other party? Law permits you to examine those witnesses. Why are you in hurry? Recording of your statement is going on. After that you try to examine them,” the court had said.

Today, the couple submitted the list of 13 defence witnesses in the court, and asked to summon them.

However, CBI opposed summoning some of the defence witnesses. “We will file a written reply on the list of Talwars’ witnesses in trial court on Thrusday,” said CBI lawyer RK Saini.
