Ghaziabad: Nupur Talwar, mother of murdered teenager Aarushi, was on Monday jailed after a special CBI court rejected her bail application in the case of murder of her 14-year-old daughter and domestic help in Noida four years ago.

Nupur, a dentist by profession, broke down on hearing the decision of Additional District and Sessions Judge Shyamlal who rejected her interim bail plea and posted the application for regular bail for hearing tomorrow.

She would have to spend at least tonight and will be lodged in barrack number 13 of the district jail where her husband Rajesh had earlier spent 50 days after his arrest in the case.

A shattered Nupur, who had the company of her husband and a few relatives in the special CBI court where she was waiting in judicial custody, was taken by women constables in a police van to Dasna jail.

On a dramatic day of court hopping, Nupur failed to get relief from a Special CBI court before which she surrendered this morning following a Supreme Court directive to her to do so.

As she was taken under judicial custody immediately, Nupur waited in Special Judge Preeti Singh's court the whole day while her lawyers knocked at the doors of the District and Sessions Judge Bharat Bhushan pleading with him to hear an application for a regular bail.

In case the regular bail was not being heard the court should atleast consider her interim bail, her lawyers pleaded.

Judge Bharat Bhushan referred the matter to Additional District and Sessions Judge Shayamlal before whom the petition came up in the post-lunch session.

Judge Shyamlal heard the arguments of both the sides and reserved the order till late in the evening when he rejected her plea for interim bail and posted the application for regular bail for hearing tomorrow.
