Skipping a court hearing on Wednesday proved costly for Nupur Talwar, the prime suspect in the double murder case of her daughter Aarushi Talwar and her domestic servant Hemraj.
A Ghaziabad court has issued a non-bailable warrant against Nagpur Talwar for failing to make an appearance in the court during the hearing of the case. The next hearing will take place on April 18.
According to sources, Nupur is also likely to surrender soon. However, Talwar's lawyer might move the Supreme Court to sought a stay against the warrant.
The Supreme Court had earlier directed the accused to face trials in Aarushi Talwar-Hemraj double murder case.
The special CBI court trying the Aarushi murder case ordered Nupur to appear before the court within 30-day. However, Nupur dared to go against the court order by not appearing during the hearing. Her husband Rajesh Talwar was present.
Nupur's lawyer sought the court to exempt her from appearing as the plea against the apex court's order to face trial is still pending. The plea of Talwars would come for hearing at apex court on April 27. However, considering the request of the CBI, the court that refused to buy the arguments on Nupur's missing and issued a warrant.
In 2008, Aarushi, a 14-year-old girl was found dead in her bedroom at her residence in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, with her throat slit. Hours later, another dead body was found on the terrace, which was identified as Hemraj, a house maid.
The double murder case was handed over to the CBI that indicted the parents' hand.
