NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that the dentist couple Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar will remain on bail and not be arrested till February.  

A Bench, comprising Justice A K Ganguly and Justice J S Khehar, directed that the couple shall appear before the Ghaziabad trial court, which will hear the case. The Talwars are facing murder charges over the death of their 14-year-old daughter Aarushi and their domestic help Hemraj.

The Bench said any further proceeding with regard to their bail shall be decided by the trial court. The order of the Bench also said the dentist shall not leave the city without informing the local police and that his passport shall remain in the custody of the magistrate.

Senior counsel Harish Salve, who appeared for the couple, submitted that his client will appear before the trial court, as directed, on February 4. Aarushi was found murdered with her throat slit at her residence in Noida on the outskirts of Delhi on the intervening night of May 15-16, 2008, and the body of Hemraj was recovered on the terrace the next day.

It was on January 6 that the apex court had asked the couple to face trial with regard to the murder.
