Yet again Arushi murder case hearing has been adjourned by the Ghaziabad court on Saturday till February 29.
The Talwar family has filled a plea to the Supreme Court seeking transfer of their case from Ghaziabad to Delhi. In which they approached the Supreme Court to overrule the verdict of a lower court that rejects their plea on January 6, 2012 against the CBI to make them the main accused in the case.
Arushi’s father Dr Rajesh and mother, Nupur Talwar both are accused in their daughter’s murder case.
Aarushi, 14-year-old was found dead at her bedroom at Noida residence on May 16, 2008. The police thought that Hemraj, the Talwars’ domestic help, could be the prime suspect, but Hemraj’s dead body was also found on the apartment’s terrace the next day.
Krishna and two other domestic helps, Raj Kumar and Vijay Mandal were arrested by CBI but they were let out on bail.
After being arrested Rajesh Talwar was kept behind bars for 50 days and having no sufficient evidence against him, he was later let off.
Beside it, the CBI filed a closure report in the case on December 2010 before the special court in Ghaziabad. But Talwar filed plea to court against the closure that had rejected by the apex court too and in a dramatic twist summoned both the parents to face trial.
The Talwar couple did not attend the court hearing on Saturday as feared a threat to their lives. However, both Rajesh and Nupur Talwar who were named the prime accused in the murder, should have been present during the hearing as the apex court did not exempt them from Ghaziabad to Delhi, the CBI said.
