New Delhi, September 17 (CMC) Nupur Talwar, who has been in jail for over four months in the twin murder case of her daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, was on Monday granted bail by the Supreme Court.
In view of ongoing trial in which the CBI is examining the witnesses, a bench of justice AK Patnaik and justice JS Khehar said that Nupur be released next week and directed the investigating agency to complete examining its witnesses by September 25.
"We ask the trial court to allow one week time to CBI to examine the remaining material witnesses. If they are not examined then trial court shall release the petitioner by September 25," the bench said.

The apex court bench of justice AK Patnaik and justice JS Khehar said: "(The) trial court shall release Nupur Talwar on bail subject to its own satisfaction."

Nupur, who has been in jail for 139 days since her surrender before the Ghaziabad court on April 30, had moved the apex court challenging the Allahabad high court's order which had on May 31 dismissed her plea for bail.

The trial court had on May 2 rejected Nupur's bail plea.

Her dentist husband Rajesh Talwar, who is a co-acused in the case, has already been granted bail on July 11, 2008 by the trial court.

Opposing the bail plea, additional solicitor general Siddharth Luthra contended that the CBI has already examined nine out of 13 witnesses and only two witnesses remain to be examined as it has dropped two witnesses because they are not traceable.

It assured the court that trial would be completed by the end of this year.
