The Supreme Court on Monday granted bail for Nupur Talwar in her daughter Aarushi Talwar's murder case.
Nupur will be released on Sep 25 from Dasna Jail in Ghaziabad, where she has been lodged for the last six months since her arrest in April in the double-murder case.
Central Bureau of Investigation officials had opposed Nupur's bail plea in the four-year-old case saying that she could influence witnesses. The top court overruled the CBI.
Nupur and her husband Rajesh Talwar, a dentist, are accused of murdering their teenage daughter Aarushi and house help Hemraj in 2008.
On April 18, a CBI court trying the Aarushi case issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Nupur as she did not show up for a hearing. The CBI could not take her into custody as she disappeared when officials raided her residences in Ghaziabad and New Delhi.
After giving the slip to CBI officials, Nupur moved the Supreme Court against the non-bailable warrant, following which the CBI was directed to refrain from arresting Nupur until an SC bench heard her plea seeking anticipatory bail and a stay on the non-bailable warrant.
The apex court directed Nupur to surrender while refusing to stay on non-bailable warrant against her but allowed her to seek bail in the magistrate's court.
Later, Nupur was sent to judicial custody by a CBI court after it refused to grant her bail.
Aarushi, 14, 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 that of the domestic help Hemraj.
The double murder case was handed over to the CBI. The agency suspects that the parents of the girl are the main perpetrators of the crime.
