Dentist Nupur Talwar, facing trial along with husband Rajesh for the 2008 murder of their daughter Arushi and domestic help Hemraj, has been asked by Dasna Jail authorities to stop penning a book on the case till she gets court permission.
Jail officials said Nupur has already written 15 pages of a book she plans to title The Story of an Unfortunate Mother. She has told them she will seek court permission on Monday.
"We have asked Dr Talwar to take court permission before writing the book," Jail Superintendent Viresh Raj Sharma said. Nupur has been at the Dasna Jail since April 30 after her plea for bail was rejected.
On Friday, the start of prosecution proceedings in the case was deferred to May 14 after the counsel for the Talwars said they had received insufficient documents from the CBI. The agency, on the other hand, maintained that all relevant documents had been handed over.
Special Judge Shyam Lal said a decision on the documents would be taken on May 14. He asked the CBI to formally reply to the plea for documents by that date.
Both Rajesh and Nupur were present in court on Friday. Their counsel said several important parts of the investigation had been kept hidden from them and these should be revealed by the CBI "in the spirit of justice". These included the report filed by the first investigating officer in the case and call records of domestic helps who were earlier accused in the case.
The CBI objected to the release of these documents. "In our opinion, this is another time-wasting tactic. On May 9, the special CBI magistrate had already rejected the Talwars' plea for all documents. Now, they have brought up this issue again. We maintain that all relevant documents have been given to them. The only things that have been withheld are those files that are not being used in the investigation. We are under no obligation to part with them," CBI counsel R K Saini said.
