Talwar’s relieved from SC, asked to deposit Passports

Arushi Murder Case
The High Court had said it cannot prohibit the magistrate from taking cognizance of a case if, prima facie, it appears as if there is sufficient evidence against a person.

Justice Bala Krishna Narayana of the Allahabad High Court dismissed the criminal revision petition of Nupur against the CBI court proceedings, stating that the petition has “failed to provide any valid reason warranting the court’s intervention at this stage”.

The High Court had asked Nupur, who submitted that she had been summoned despite never having been called for interrogation or having been named as an accused in the CBI’s closure report, to appear before the trial court within two weeks.

Another petition filed by Rajesh Talwar, challenging the bailable warrants issued by the Ghaziabad court on February 28, was dismissed by another Bench.

On February 9, the Ghaziabad court had issued bailable warrants against the couple for failing to appear before the court, and decided to initiate proceedings against them.

After rejecting the closure report of the CBI, which it treated as a chargesheet, it had named Nupur and Rajesh as the accused in the case.
